Panthers rampage to title again

Women League champions were officially declared when Panthers defeated Stingray by 7 wickets.  

Panthers captained by Wyvonne Forbes in the absence of regular captain Molly Ann Moore, limited Stingray to 81 runs with Desrene Cox, Carneth Thomas and Wyvonne Forbes taking two wickets apiece. Leading from in front, Captain Forbes was 31 runs not out at the end of the match. 

It took many years in coming, but a tied match was the end result of a low-scoring match between By Rite and Prison at the Smith Road Oval last weekend. On a pitch with inconsistent bounce, By Rite wickets kept falling at regular intervals with only Deno McInnis 27 playing with any certainty.  

Excellent controlled bowling from Prison Bazil brothers Kevon and Kevin, Oscar Owen and Kervin Ebanks reduced By Rite to 87 for 9. It was no different when Prison batted as the By Rite bowlers lead by Conroy Wright and Jermaine Griffith kept a tight hold on proceedings and Prison were bundled out for 87 runs also. 

At the Jimmy Powell Oval, Greenies 1 kept on increasing their points tally by defeating Police. Greenies batting first totalled 174 for 5 wickets in 28 overs in a match reduced due to overnight showers.  

Among the runs was captain Chris Palmer with an attractive 77 and Ryan Bovell 44. Police had an early setback with loss of Ramon Sealy and never got going. Only Abali Hoilett with 36 created any impression. Greenies won by 68 runs. 

Esso Cubs defeated Chillies in the Division 2 clash and secured equal points to Aims Consultants. Batting first Esso Cubs made a massive 253 for 7 with Ramon Sealy 75 and Darren Cato 48 and then bowlers Ricardo Roach and Gregory Smith took 6 wickets between them and reduced Chillies to 71 for 9 wickets winning by a massive 182 runs.
