Greenies girls submerge Islanders

An incredible win was chalked up by the Greenies ladies against Islanders last week at the John A. Cumber field in West Bay. 

With only eight players and the season rapidly coming to an end, the Greenies were determined not to allow the shortage to deter their motivation to clinch a win.  

An outstanding first wicket partnership of 124 between Carmel Harms, 91 runs off 41 balls, and Carol Ann Rotsey (22) came to an end in the 12th over.  

Harms was playing glorious shots, scattering balls to all parts of the field and Islanders had no answer to the onslaught of boundaries, which left their fielders in complete disarray. 

Karen Hart chipped in with a solid quick-fire 30 not out off 18 balls and the Greenies posted a season high 186 off their 20 overs.  

It was hot in Hell, West Bay, and with only six fielders, a keeper and bowler the Greenies had their work cut out for them.  

A break through in the first over by Harms saw the stumps cartwheeling and Natasha Roberts back in the shade for a duck. The Greenies fielding was sharp and even with only six in the outfield the Islanders struggled to find the boundary with any regularity and had to earn their runs the hard way.  

Jaida Morgan (38) and Paulette Pinnock (35) tried to keep the Islanders in the game, however, their wickets started falling around the 12th over with a sharp run out by Harms to dismiss White, followed by a brilliant ball by Sharma bowling Pinnock which sent the stumps tumbling.  

A caught and bowled by Harms dismissed Morgan followed by Daley being caught behind by Hart.  

Islanders posted a respectable 5 wickets down for 133 runs. Extras top scored with 45. Greenies ran out winners 
by 53 runs.
