Third cup victory

Arin Kumar
Sunday, June 01, 2014

ARUN Kumar won his third Pineapple Cup when he beat Eminoni Turagabeci in the final yesterday.

He won the ANZ-sponsored tournament with a 21-12 score in the final at the Suva Bowling Club.

Kumar had tasted success in the competition in 2002 and 2005 and then made sure he bagged the title again on its 90th year anniversary.

He said Turagabeci had given him tough competition in the final but experience proved to be the key for him.

"I had an easy pool and came through to the final easily," he said.

"But the final was quite tough and Eminoni is a young bowler with a good eye but experience helped me win the final.

"Now I look forward to competing in the ANZ South Pacific Bowling Carnival and hope to win the singles title as well."

Turagabeci, son of former national champion, Caucau, said he tried his best in the final.

"I tried really hard but Arun was really good in the final," the 30-year-old said.

"Now I have to put this loss behind me and concentrate on the South Pacific Carnival which starts tomorrow (today)."

Meanwhile, Litia Tikoisuva won the first ever Ladies competition during the Pineapple Cup event.

She beat Elisabeth Mocewai 21-17 in the final.
