FIJI number one Marika Matanatabu won the Squash Fiji's Fintel/Kidanet tournament at the Defence Club in Suva yesterday.

The youngster who recently won the Squash International Tournament held in New Caledonia kept his winning run intact after beating Salesh Pala 3-0 in the final.

Matanatabu defeated Nitesh Prasad by 3-0 while Pala overcame lone Northern rep Tige Young by similar scoreline in the semi-finals.

"Marika took only 25 minutes to win the game," tournament co-ordinator Isimeli Cerelala said.

Cerelala said the three-day tournament was a success adding they were looking forward to their next event in August.

"We will select a squad to prepare for the Pacific Games from the Fulton Hogan Hiways National Championship that will be held in Suva from August 25 to 30."

Meanwhile, Sam Cerelala defeated Gavin Pereira by technical knockout after the latter pulled a muscle during the game to win the B-grade title while Deneric Hazelman defeated Chris Yee by 3-0 to win the C-grade.

In the beginner's category, Gocean Mai defeated Nuwwan Dayanand 3-2.
