MVC Rivals meet a Stop Sign

Defending RBTT Premier Division cricket champions, MVC Rivals, can almost kiss goodbye to the title, after their fixture last weekend against Irie Travel Packers ended in a no decision at the Arnos Vale Two Playing Field, as rain severely affected the domestic programme.{{more}}

Harley Skerritt struck 86, and Captain Deighton Butler, 56, as Rivals posted 203 for 6 declared. Roneil Jeffrey, 2 for 63, and Javon Samuel, 2 for 64, bowling for Packers.

Replying in the rain affected match, Packers managed 166 for 6. Alfie Gould in another good knock made 81 not out and Jeffrey, 25, and Mc Neil Morgan, 22. Kesrick Williams took 4 for 27. Both teams were awarded five points each.

But Victors Two had it the easy way at the Sion Hill Playing Field, as Police Two turned up with insufficient players, giving them maximum points.

Bottlers First Division

The same occurred in the Bottlers First Division, as there were two no decisions and one default match.

There was no decision at the North Union Playing Field between Belmont and Moses Douglas Radcliffe Two. Belmont made 69. Kamon Greene took 3 for 14, Paul Harry, 2 for 10, and Andy Harper, 2 for 12, bowling for Radcliffe. No play was possible on day two Sunday, because of rain.

Similarly, Owia Stars and Sion Hill were each awarded five points as their continuation match did not see any play at the Brighton Playing Field on Sunday, also because of the inclement weather.

The match which started three weekends ago saw Owia at 257 for 7 declared. Sion Hill was 19 for 2, when no groundsman turned up the next day to prepare the pitch.

And, the default train got another full load of passengers, as ASCO Two failed to show against Police One at the Buccament Bay Playing Field.

Senior Women’s Division

The Women’s Division was more fortunate as the limited overs competition saw two matches going the distance.

United Survivors, after settling for a no decision against North Leeward, returned to strip Garifuna Stars by 56 runs.

Samantha Lynch compiled 39, Sherry Ann Abbott, 30, and Rosetta Williams, 21, as United Survivors hit 168 for 7 off 40 overs. Keisha Nero, 2 for 27, and Juleen Cato, 2 for 40, were the top bowlers for Garifuna Stars.

In reply, Garifuna Stars were bowled out for 112 off 30.1 overs. Debbi Jordan topscored with 31, and Nero made 26. Maria Abbott took 4 for 22.

In their no decision match, Camille Garrick made 37, as United Survivors had reached 115 for 9. Phernel Charles, 2 for 14, Earlene De Grads, 2 for 16, were the most successful bowlers for North Leeward, as the two teams had to settle for five points apiece.

Garifuna Stars, though, made amends, handing Superstrikers by five wickets. Superstrikers was shot out for 52 in 20 overs. Teresha Lavia had a handful 5 for 15. Garifuna Stars scored 54 for 5 in 12.1 overs. Jasmine Browne took 2 for 11 and Alvina King, 2 for 19, in a losing cause. (RT)
