Island Heritage Stingrays crowned
themselves double champions in the Women League’s on Sunday at the John A
Cumber School ground. In front of an appreciative crowd of supporters which
included Island Heritage representative Monique Bush, national and local men
cricketers, Stingrays led by Beverly Watson defeated Greenies in the T/20 tournament.
The sun came out in its brilliance
after a rainy Saturday and with it some outstanding cricket as the women showed
their development was on the right track.
Greenies won the toss and leading
women cricketer Carmel Harms displayed a wide range of strokes making 73n.o off
56 balls with nine fours and one glorious six into the school yard. Greenies
made 114 for 2 wickets. Island Heritage Stingrays Rosemarie Wilson came out
blazing scoring 39n.o with 4 fours and one six. She was well supported by
Pamela Martin 17 and Natasha Roberts 18. Although Carmel Harms picked up for a
second time two wickets in two balls there was no stopping Island Heritage
Stingrays. They won by 7 wickets. Technical director Theo Cuffy said:
“Congratulations to the Islands Heritage Stingrays playing undefeated
throughout another season.”
