Moce on a winning streak

Tom Smith

MOCE continued its surge for the National Cricket Easter Championship title yesterday with a defiant 9-wicket win against Ono-i-Lau.

In very overcast conditions, the Moce islanders bowled Ono-i-Lau out for 110 after 39.2 overs. Captain Solomone Colati contributed the only half decent score for the underdogs with 21.

However, the second innings run chase wasn't as simple as it sounded as Moce lost an early wicket leaving them 21-1.

Although, after a strong 2nd wicket partnership of 89 between S Makutu (32 N.O) and Maciu Gauna (58 N.O) they crossed the finish line in style with a huge six a few balls before the winning runs were scored.

In the game on the other pitch at the Albert Park, Komo came out on top against Lakeba 2 with a 3-wicket win after chasing down the required total of 153, and it was 17-year-old Tuitoga who stole the show with an impressive 48 not-out.

Laijia for Komo had brilliant bowling figures of 20-3 from 10 overs including two maidens.

The game could have gone either way going into lunch, but out came Tuitoga who sprayed the ball around the field with very natural cricket shots.

His innings were very disciplined for someone so young, he played the big shots when he had to but also kept the scoreboard ticking with singles when the boundary shot wasn't on.

The winning runs were met with a huge roar from the fans around the boundary and the youngster soaked in the glory by lifting his bat in the air.
