Defending champion need more points

DEFENDING champion ANZ needs to win their games in the remaining two rounds if they want to stay in contention for the Business House Lawn Bowls title.

ANZ won the second business house event of the year last month at the Suva Bowling Club and with three losses in five rounds, they are slowly slipping out of contention for the Humes-sponsored third event of the year.

On Thursday night, Fintel edged ANZ 15-12 to push the defending champions further down the points table of section B competition.

Club manager Sanjeevan Nair said ANZ need to win in the remaining two rounds.

He said by the end of round six competition next week, they would be able to see which teams were confirmed for the main quarter-finals.

“In Section A – Geotech leads the pool with eight points with four wins and a loss,” Nair said.

“They are followed by Rena Distributors on six points from three wins and two losses.

“FBD, Standard Concrete, BSP and Copra Millers follow with five points each.”

Market Development with four points and Australian Embassy with two points are two bottom placed teams in Section A.

“In Section B – FDB II leads the pool with 10 points from five wins.

“They are followed by Humes with eight points from four wins and a loss.

“Bank of Baroda comes in next with six points and then Westpac, Merchant Finance, ANZ and Fintel are sitting on four points.”

FASANOC is yet to win a game in section B competition.

RESULTS: BSP 7 Market Development 17, Copra Millers WBD over Australian Embassy, Standard Concrete 18 FDB I 18, Rena Distributors 9 Geotech 16, Merchant Finance 15.75 Bank of Baroda 13, ANZ 12 Fintel 15, Humes 23 Westpac 13, FASANOC 14 FDB II 18.
