Gordon’s century leads Prison over Police

Division One

A commanding century by Steve Gordon saw Prison win comfortably by 6 wickets against Police in a Money Express Division One game. Gordon, who opened the innings, featured in an unbroken 5th wicket partnership of 112 with Christopher Williams who was undefeated on 50.

When Kevin Basil edged Cleve Hunte to the ‘keeper’ to make the score 88-4, chasing 200, a match was on. But Gordon, who eventually ended on 103 not out, and Williams asserted themselves, took no chances and properly utilized the pluperfect track to escort Prison home safely.

Earlier Police were sent on the back foot by Prison’s opening bowler Oscar Owen’s spell of 3-11. Police’s recovery effort was led by a belligerent 90 by Pearson Best. They eventually rallied to 199-8. With Steve Gordon in such ominous touch, it proved not to be enough.

The other Division One match between Environmental All Stars and Esso, which promised so much intrigue, was rained out in the 17th over of Environmental’s innings.

The highlight was two searing drives by Walton Gooding from the bowling of ‘Ankles’ Williams. Environment had reached 73-3 when the rains came. Both teams get 2 points.
