DEBUTANTS Bobby and Rajnesh Prasad created history by taking out the Master Pairs title at the Vatukoula Bowling Club on Sunday.

The interesting final against Rick Eyre and Jona Koroitamana went down to the wire.

After 18 ends the two teams were tied 16-all which forced a one end playoff.

Bobby and Rajnesh, who are cousins, picked up three shots to claim a 19-16 victory.

In the semi-final, Bobby and Rajnesh defeated Semesa Naiseruvati and Jone Netava 22-13.

In the other semi-final, Eyre and Koroitamana beat the brothers combination of Kara and Eminoni Turagabeci 19-14.

This was Rajnesh's second major win for the season. He won the Victa Clark singles title at the Lautoka Bowling Club last month.

Bobby, who is the director of Portion Pak Limited, said their next target would be the Banana Cup at the Suva Bowling Club this weekend.

He said they played technically in the playoff to outclass Rick and Jona.

"We have been practising for the past two months and competed in the ANZ Bank business house competition," Bobby said.

"There were many strong pairings in the competition and it was good to come out on top at the end."
