Another Vincentian, Byron Mars, captured the Most Wickets, 38, and had the Best Bowling Average, 11.84. Andy Douglas recorded the Best Bowling in a game, 7 for 26.

This Saturday at 12:30 pm, Cavaliers faces Panthers at Marine Park (MPK)C, while Middlesex meets Shaheen at MPK D, all in their first game.

This year, one of the Vincy outfits, Stars United Cricket Club, is no more. It has been replaced by Queensbury, which like Stars is made up mainly of Vincentians.

Also last Saturday, a team from the Brooklyn League was part of the Mayor’s Cup. They played the American League.

Brooklyn League won the game and will now move on to semi-finals where they will face NYC Parks Department on Saturday, May 15.

In that match the Brooklyn League scored 175 for 8 off 20, while the American League replied with only 111 all out in 18.4 overs.
