Maria’s Pleasure win Banks DIH softball tourney
Maria’s Pleasure were crowned champions of the Banks DIH softball competition when they defeated Melville by 9 wickets in the final which was contested last Sunday at Sewram’s Tarmac, Belle Plaine, Wakenaam.
The game was reduced to a one over affair due to the fading light; Melville batted first and posted 16 without loss. Maria’s Pleasure responded with 17-1. Eight teams took part in the one-day competition which saw thirty (30) preliminary matches played before arriving at the finalists.
Kennard Lewis of Maria’s Pleasure who scored 16 runs grabbed the man-of-the-match award while Daniram Persaud of Rest of the Island got the award for hitting the biggest six. Satnarine Sahadeo of Melville was given the prizes for hitting the most sixes and taking the best catch.
