But there was enough on Sunday to give Police Two and the News Spartans first innings points over their rivals.

At Arnos Vale One Playing Field, Police Two batted first and made 121, with Mc Leon Williams topscoring with 26.

St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Windwards left arm fast bowler, Kenroy Peters had a hatful, as he snared 5 for 22, and veteran player Ted Roberts took 2 for 18, bowling for Eat Rite Saints.

It was then the turn of left arm spinner, Rolando Wright, who undermined Saints batting, with figures of 5 for 36. Calvin Glasgow chipped in with 3 for 22, bowling for the lawmen.

At the Stubbs Playing Field, Spartans did the same on the struggling Victors Two.

Kevin Abraham hit a topscore of 33 and Ranjel Small contributed 27 as Victors Two was dismissed for 101.

Teron Simon, fresh from representing the Windwards in the West Indies under-19 tournament in Guyana, took 4/29 and Micah Joseph 2 for 2.

Spartans in reply reached 106 for 4, when the match was called off. Darnley Joseph continued his rich vein of form with 50 and Kissinger Mc Lean struck 39 not out.

Following last weekend’s matches, Victors Two, Police Two and Saints have completed their seven-match quota in the competition.

Meanwhile, in the National Lotteries Authority first Division, runaway leaders ASCO was handed another easy sixteen points by Smashers, who arrived late last Sunday, at the Buccament Playing Field. (RT)
