ISLANDS Electric Lautoka Crushers thumped Vuda Jets 36-6 to maintain its unbeaten run in the FNRL premier competition at Lautoka's Churchill Park on Saturday.

The side outclassed the Jets scoring six tries to secure its 10th win of the season.

Fullback Marika Sigawale was in top form scoring a brace of tries while teammates Keleto Tabuakacivi, Kitione Ligavatu, Semiti Jeke and Tom Hini also registered their names on the score list.

Jeke was spot on with his kicks scoring 12 points in the game.

Team manager/ coach Mesake Navugona was pleased with the consistency showed by his troops over the past 10 games.

He said the win had laid the platform for the two remaining games in their quest to secure a spot in the Top 8 competition.

"I thank the boys for their effort and we are now targeting to maintain our unbeaten run in the competition," said Navugona.

"We have two crucial games remaining but I am confident the boys will deliver the goods required from them.

"There are still room for improvements in which the boys are aware of."

And with one round of competition remaining, Navugona is optimistic the side will maintain its unbeaten run for the season.

"We need to win our remaining games as we set our target on securing a spot in the Top 8 competition."

Navugona also thanked their supporters, team sponsor Islands Electric director, Raymond Singh, for assisting the side to achieve great heights in the sport.

Meanwhile, in another exciting Top 8 match, Saru Dragons hammered Police Sharks 34-0 at Churchill Park over the weekend.
