Led by St Vincent and the Grenadines, Windwards and Sagicor West Indies High Performance team member Sunil Ambris, Mix Up Moods successfully replied to Third World’s 159 for 6 from their allotted 20 overs at the Stubbs Playing Field.

The right-handed Ambris struck 89 not out and left-handed Joey Welcome was 31 not out, as Mix Up Moods reached 160 for 2 from 18 overs.

When Third World batted, Christopher Campbell hit 69 and Leon Samuel 32.

Bowling for Mix Up Moods, former St Vincent and the Grenadines and Windwards fast bowler Mc Neil Morgan took 2 for 36 and Roland Coombs had 2 for 21.

But the unbeaten Victoria Village Future Stars made it six wins in a row when they jammed Top Gun by 45 runs on Saturday.

Choosing to bat, Future Stars posted 149 for 7 from their maximum 20 overs. Leading the way with the bat were Seon Sween 42 and Jerron John 23.

Bowling for Top Guns, Herman Bailey and Roniel Jeffrey both snared 2 for 25.

Also in the winners’ column last weekend was Total Protection Security Services Church Road Connections, who defeated Rate Yo Boys Challengers by seven wickets.

Inserted by Church Road, Challengers scored 129 for 7 from their 20 overs.

The main contributors in that total were Wendell Corridor who made 45 and Frankie Joseph 29.

Bowling for Church Road, Roland Wilkinson grabbed 3 for 36 and Nixon Mc Lean 2 for 8.

Church Road responded with 125 for 4 in 13 overs, with Hyron Shallow hitting 44 and Roland Wilkinson 26.

Wendell Corridon with 2 for 27 and Chase Weekes, 2 for 20, shared the wickets that fell.

Another three matches are set for this weekend. On Saturday, Third World meet Glamorgan, while on Sunday, Rate Yo Boys Challengers face Top Guns in the first of the double header, with Church Road against the unbeaten Future Stars crowning off the schedule. (RT)
