MARIST Seahawks stamped its dominance in the women's rugby when it demolished Central Chiefs 26-5 in the 27th Fiji Bitter Marist 7s women final at Prince Charles Park yesterday.

The side scored four tries to Chiefs' one to walk away with the $1000 prizemoney offer.

Laced with seven members of the Fijian team that recently returned from the China 7s, the Seahawks spread their wings past the Chiefs to maintain their unbeaten run in the two-day competition.

Lavinia Tinai, Roela Radinivualiku, Eta Logaivau and Rusila Tamoi scored a try each in a one-sided affair.

Coach Joseph Robert Subramani commended his girls for their effort.

He said the players worked hard to fulfil their goal of winning the tournament.

"It was a tremendous performance from the girls starting yesterday in the pool games," said Subramani.

"Despite of some niggling injuries we managed to work together to produce this magnificent result.

"We never underestimated any team during the tournament."
