STEPHEN O'Regan's team successfully retained the men's fours title at the ANZ South Pacific Bowling Carnival in Suva.

The team from Lilydale in Australia beat Laqere Netava's team from Vatukoula 21-17 in the final at the Suva Bowling Club.

Team skip Luke Lamont said it was difficult final but the experience of their players carried them through.

The Vatukoula side which also consisted of Eminoni Turagabeci, the son of former national rep Caucau Turagabeci, who played in their first fours final.

"It was quite tough but we have played the same side in the section games so we knew what to expect from them," Lamont said.

"They gave us a good match which was to be decided in the last end."

In the women's final, Suzie Nawaqaliva's side was crowned the new champions beating Sai Walker's side 18-15 in the final.

Nawaqaliva said they were brimming with confidence after overcoming the national women's side in the lead-up to the final by one point.

"After we beat the Fiji team that would play at the Commonwealth Games next month, I told my team that we have got to win the final," she said.

"We met Sai Walker's team in the final and at the second last end, the scores were tied at 15-all but we managed to get the winning three points in the very last end."

The first round of the singles competition was played yesterday and will conclude tomorrow.
