The law officers came away victors over the home team — Carlos James Peto Triumph United.

Police batted first and posted 180 for 5 off their maximum 20 overs.

Leading the charge was the left-handed Mc Leon Williams, who smashed 57 and Salvan Browne who pounded 45. Both Williams and Browne have represented St Vincent and the Grenadines, with Browne going on to play for the Windwards in the regional four-day tournament.

Nigel Small took 2 for 34, to be Peto Triumph’s most successful bowler.

In response, Peto Triumph was shackled and reached 138 for 9 in their 20 overs.

Nigel Small followed up his bowling efforts with 21.

Kenneth Dember, current St Vincent and the Grenadines off spinner, and former Windwards Under-19 player, and who previously represented Troumaca, grabbed 3 for 16, as the constabulary’s top brass were on hand to witness the triumph.

Before Sunday’s final, Police were called out on duty in a play-off against Ajuba, after both had finished on the same number of points in the preliminary phase of the competition.

Police scored 102 for 9 off 13 overs, as the match was reduced because of rain. Kenneth Dember hit 29 and Elron Lewis 24. Kamali Williams 4 for 15 and Shaquille Browne 2 for 27, were the main wicket takers for Ajuba.

In response, Ajuba got 79 for 6 off 11.3 overs when play ended, due to poor light.

Police won on a faster scoring rate by nine runs.

Jeron John top scored with 33. Kenneth Dember snared 3 for 14.

Organizers say that a presentation ceremony will be held at a date and venue to be announced.
