A NEW champion will be crowned in the ANZ South Pacific Bowling Carnival ladies singles competition today at the Suva Bowling Club.

Defending champion Litia Tikoisuva was bundled out in the preliminary rounds after losing to Elizabeth Moceiwai in pool play.

Mocewai, Luisa Khan, Moreen Cooney, Helen Elliot, Sharyn Arnold, Yasena, Karen Cheney and Rota Vakaloloma have qualified in the quarter-finals to be played today.

In the men's competition, Vatukoula's Laqere Natava caused a major upset after beating national rep Abdul Kalim.

Natava will face Semesa Naiseruvati in the quarters today.

In the other quarter-finals, defending champions Samuela Tui will play Dinesh Balgovind of Australia, Arun Kumar faces Ramesh Chand and Wayne Preety takes on Ray Collins.

Tournament director Martin Fong anticipates exciting clashes today.

"Samuela Tui is looking good to defend his title. There will be a good battle in semi-finals given the calibre of bowlers in the men's competition," he said.

"There is this young first grader Wayne Preety from the bottom section also looking good and other in form bowlers are Arun Kumar and Laqere Natava."
