FIJI secured its first win in the inaugural Pasifika Under-17 Tri-Series after beating Tonga by 61 runs at the Laucala Cricket Ground in Suva yesterday.

The national side lost its opening match to Vanuatu by five runs on Tuesday.

Against Tonga, Fiji won the toss and elected to bat. The visitors made a ruthless start but Fiji managed to score 119 runs after the loss of eight wickets.

In reply, Tonga, despite a strong start, managed only 58 runs after the loss of eight wickets.

Fiji skipper Saimoni Tuitoga was the top scorer of the match with 26 runs.

Tonga faced Vanuatu later in the afternoon and lost badly by 10 wickets.

The Tongans batted first and were all out for 29 runs while Vanuatu eased through to surpass the target with their openers.

Vanuatu, after three wins, has progressed into tomorrow's Pasifika U17 Tri-Series final regardless of the result in their final round-robin match against Fiji today at 9am. Fiji will also play Tonga at 1.30pm.
