3FIR Army Tailevu wrested the Bougainville Bowl from Army Lautoka after winning 19-9 at Churchill Park in Lautoka yesterday.

Former national rep Jaoji Dakuvula starred for the Army Tailevu team kicking four penalties and a conversion for a personal tally of 14 points.

Army Tailevu led 13-6 at the break.

Tevita Rabukawaqa scored a try for the challengers while Vucago Bainitabua kicked three penalties for the holders.

Army Tailevu coach Joeli Matanatabu said their Lautoka counterparts gave them a tough fight.

"We are happy to take the bowl back to the Southern Division," he said.

"Now we have to work on our mistakes and work hard for the next match."

Army Lautoka manager Iliesa Koroinawaliva said basic errors cost them the game, adding their ball handling was poor.

"It was a good game but the boys failed to stick to the game plan," he said.

"Most of their players have played at the provincial level."

Army Macuata is the next challenger.
