Caymanian cricketers were left wondering whether Cayman Brac has seemingly recorded the most outstanding victory in local history as matches continued over the weekend.
The question being asked is: “How many runs are required to beat the Brac at home?” UCCI/West Bay scored a huge 277 for 9 with Stedman Gray 64 and Morvin Brooks 34. Cayman Brac had other ideas!
Steve Coates 160n.o, Desrick Dawson 62 and captain Sahadeo Sohan 44n.o took Cayman Brac to victory by 9 wickets.
At the Smith Road Oval another story was unfolding. Antonio Chase wrote his name in the records. Having assisted his team Welly’s to a respectable total of 243 for 6 by making 39n.o. Chase came back with the ball to destroy any hopes of Aims Consultants.
An excellent partnership of 103 between Sam Suberan 62 and Donald McKoy 59 took Aims Consultants to 200 for 3 wickets and then Chase struck. Four wickets in one over including a hat-trick, Chase recorded envious statistics of 5 wickets for 23 runs leading Welly’s to victory by 18 runs. Playing for Welly’s, Zachary McLaughlin continued in his good form scoring 63.
Paramount defeated Chillies by 42 runs at the JPO on Saturday. Leon Watson 60 and Al Shields 33 were the main batsmen as Paramount scored 243 and limited Chillies to 201.
For Greenies Ian Rotsey (Division 1) and Carmel Harms (Women League) recorded excellent hundreds but both teams ended with losing efforts. Greenies 1 scored 237 for 3 with Rotsey an even 100n.o, Andrew Ledger 56 and Sacha De Alwis 43. Greenies looked on track but went down to ESSO Tigers by 4 wickets as Dave Holness 90, Paul Chin 52n.o and Alistair Ifill 38 proved they were up to the task.
Greenies Women required 20 runs in the last over following a brilliant hundred in 71 balls by Harms. Jessica Wallace struck 10 runs in balls 1 and 2 but was caught next ball going for gold. Panthers held on to win by 2 runs.
The second match in Division 1 at the JPO, Prison winning ways continued. Although restricted to the smallest score of the weekend (170), Prison bowlers Kevon Bazil 3 wickets and Mahindra Sanichar 2 wickets proved too much for By Rite. Prison won by 53 runs.
