THE Delta women's volleyball side suffered their first defeat of the season yesterday.

The side lost the women's title in the Digicel Suva Volleyball League competition at the FMF Gymnasium.

Former national rep Sereani Turova led a young Brewers side from Vatuwaqa to a 3-2 win over Delta.

In the men's super premier competition, Cakau are the new holders of the challenge title.

They beat Drifters 3-0. Drifters had won the title from Celtics last week and failed to retain it.

Tamavua Bulls successfully retained the premier title when they beat Lions 3-0 and Gamblers 3-1 respectively.

Gamblers from Vatuwaqa, Highwayz from Laqere and Chips from USP have joined the Suva competition for the remaining few rounds.

Suva Volleyball Association secretary Samuela Rabuku said they wanted to spice up the competition as it nears their closing date.

"Since we opened the games to outside clubs from other associations to join, the games have been exciting and tougher at the same time," he said.

"It gives our teams and other teams a different experience from their normal competition.

Rabuku thanked the teams for turning up despite the heavy rain in the Capital City.

"The rain did not deter us or the other teams because we are all enthusiastic about playing volleyball."

Results: Cakau 3 Drifters 0, Highways 0 Tamavua Bulls 2, Lions 2 Highways 0, Jammers 0 Gamblers 2, Marist 2 Celtics 0, Marist 3 Drifters 0, Jammers 2 Lions 0.
