DEFENDING champion Fiji Gas bounced back after a loss in the opening round of the ANZ Bank business house bowls tournament to post a win in the second round at the Nadi Sports Club greens on Wednesday.

The David Aitcheson skippered team defeated Shorab Khan's Williams & Gosling 18-13 in a tight affair in Pool B. ACME Garments skippered by Sanjeet Sen maintained its unbeaten run. The side defeated Air Terminal Services 36-9.

Gibson Freight and BSP Life are on top in Pool A after two wins.

Club bowls director Bobby Prasad guided his Home Finance team to back to back victories as well.

Prasad said the final round of pool matches would be played next Wednesday.

"The top team from each pool will qualify for the Cup semi-finals. The second placed teams will go to the Plate semi-finals.

"The third placed teams will feature in the Bowl semi-finals while the fourth placed teams will play in the Shield semi-finals."
