Led by national female cricketer La Toya Providence, C.K. Greaves took first strike and recorded this year’s highest score, 71, in the competition which took place at the Arnos Vale Netball Complex. Vinlec, in their response, was disconnected for 58, thus giving C. K. Greaves the title and the $1,200 winner’s cheque.

In the semi-finals, C.K. Greaves saw off Bank of SVG. Scores: C.K. Greaves 63; Bank of SVG – 52. And, Vinlec stopped Rudy’s Electrical in a close contest. Vinlec scored 58 in reply to Rudy’s Electrical’s 54.

The competition began last month with 11 teams competing. Apart from the four semi-finalists, the other teams which participated were ECGC, CWSA, Scotia Bank, St Vincent Brewery Ltd, Voltz, the National Sports Council and Mustique Co. Ltd.

The preliminary round of the competition took a round robin format, with the teams stashed in three groups.

Six teams then emerged to the next phase. VINLEC, C.K. Greaves and Scotia Bank finished in group one and in group two: Rudy’s Electrical, Bank of SVG and CWSA.

The annual competition is one of the main sources of fund-raising for the Rotary Club of St Vincent South. (RT)
