Rising Star and Golden Fleece chalked victories when the Edward Skeete and Family twenty\20 cricket competition continued last Sunday at South Essequibo with two matches.
At Johanna Cecelia, Rising Star overcame host El Dorado Sports Club by 6 wickets. El Dorado batted first and managed 112-7 after the game was reduced to 15 overs due to rain. Tagenarine Deonarine and Ryan McKoy were their principal scorers with 37 and 30 respectively. Rohan Ramdass bowled economically to claim 4-10, and was well backed up by Christopher Latchman 2-11.
Rising Star then responded with 117-4 in 11.2 overs. Kayman Lakan led with an attacking 54 which contained five fours and four sixes, while Royan Federicks chipped in with 27 and Ramdass 18. Mahendra Raj took 2-27 and Tameshwar Deonarine 1-24.
At Golden Fleece, Beesham Seepersaud scored 25 then returned with the ball to capture 3-14, but his efforts were not enough to prevent his team, Invaders Masters, from going down to the host by 2 wickets. Roy Gonsalves supported Seepersaud in the batting department with 24 as their team scored 100 all out in 18.5 overs after taking first strike. Davendra Persaud bagged 3-13 while Eknauth Persaud picked up 2-20, and Deolall Rooplall 2-12.
Golden Fleece in their turn at the crease knocked off the required target in 19.1 overs ending on 101-8. Rooplall showed his all-round ability by scoring 27, while Vijay Mohan assisted with 21 as Linden Daniels also claimed 2-14.
The other scheduled matches were rained out. Meanwhile senior Coach Forbes Daniels is calling on teams to submit their match reports on time. (Zaheer Mohamed)
