THE Cricket Fiji Easter Championships kicked off yesterday with two games at Albert Park.

Moce got off to winning ways and boosted their quest for silverware after overcoming Suva Crusaders.

The Crusaders won the toss and posted a feeble 154 all out. Iniasi Cakacaka contributed with 34.

Moce's Mau Gauna continued from where he left off last week with the ball, again taking four wickets, this time for 58 runs from the maximum 10 overs.

Moce's batsmen wasted no time in chasing the required runs, hitting them in 25.1 overs.

Maika Kamikamica played a fascinating innings, scoring 98 not out.

Falling just short of his century after running out of overs, he left the field with somewhat mixed emotions, despite being the catalyst for his team's victory.

In the other game yesterday Lakeba battled it out with Suva Warriors in a slow but interesting game.

Suva won this game by just 13 runs after tallying a first innings score of 218 all out for 35.1 overs.

Kitione Tavo produced the goods for the Warriors with both the bat and ball, scoring a fast knock of 79.

Lakeba returned after lunch and despite losing frequent wickets, they were chasing down the runs quite steadily. Needing just 13 more runs, they were eventually bowled for 205 all out, to the delight of the home crowd.

Tavo took 4-43 giving him the righteous reward of Man of the Match.
