Nadi ladies reign

THE Sheryl Mar-skippered Nadi team won the ladies division at the Hutson Cup at the Nadi Sports Club yesterday.

Nadi with seasoned bowlers Doreen O'Conner, Savea Khan and Soro Scott won all their matches in the round robin competition.

The Nadi team defeated Tamavua 19-13, Suva 19-15 and Rewa 25-8.

Suva skippered by veteran Radhika Prasad finished second with two wins and a loss. Tamavua was third while Rewa was fourth.

Tournament controller Curtis Mar said the ladies division was played for the first time in the competition which started back in 1926.

Mar said this was possible after the men's and ladies associations merged as Bowls Fiji this year.

"It is really good to have the ladies participate in this event," he said.

"It just ensures that we have a high number of participants. There are two more rounds remaining in the men's division.

"Sheraton has opened up a four point lead going into the final two rounds. The side has five wins from as many matches and are favourites to retain the title.

"I would like to thank our sponsors Williams & Gosling for the ladies division and ANZ bank for the men's division for all the support."

Sheraton skippered by Samuela Tui with Arun Kumar, David Aitcheson and Jona Koroitamana who subbed Deepak Deoji defeated Lautoka 27-5, Ba

25-18 and Tamavua 26-15.

Nadi, Suva and Ba are likely to fight for second place if Sheraton continues on it winning streak.

The three teams are tied with six points each.

Today's matches will start at 8.15am.
