HIDEAWAY Hurricanes is $2000 richer after it successfully retained the Lomary Parish 7s title yesterday.

The Coral Coast-based side defeated Ranadi Gusuniwai Brothers in a controversial cup final at a heavy-foot Lomary Secondary School ground.

The Ifereimi Tovilevu-captained side led 19-7 in the later stages of the second spell when one of the Gusuniwai Brothers players threatened the referee, forcing the tournament organisers to stop the game and award Hideaway the win.

Tournament official Mitieli Savu said it was a tough encounter in the final.

"It was a good game until one of the Gusuniwai players wanted to punch the referee so according to our tournament rules, we stopped the game when Hideaway was winning," he said.

Gusuniwai, however, pocketed $1000 for reaching the cup final.

Meanwhile, Vunibau defeated Saint John's Lomary One to win the plate while Saint Michael Liganibai scooped the Bowl.

The netball competition was won by Saint Francis from Pacific Harbour.
