– Universal Solutions Bermine also through
Led by a devastating innings from West Indies Under-19 Guyana senior opener Shimron Hetmyer and a destructive
spell of off spin bowling from former Guyana Under-19 player Linden Austin, Young Warriors carved out an emphatic 10-wicket victory over Rose Hall Town Gizmos and Gadgets to storm into the semi-final of the 2014 Carib Beer First Division T20 for teams in Berbice.
In the match which was played at the Cumberland ground, Rose Hall Town choose to take first strike and were restricted to 89 all out in 19.3 overs with former Guyana Under-19 cricketer Clinton Pestano 26 and former Berbice allrounder Eon Hooper 20. Doing the damage for Young Warriors were Austin with 4 for 15 from 4 overs, Berbice youth player, left arm spinner Kassim Khan 2 for 12 from 4 overs and former Berbice under 19 left arm spinner Karamchand Ramnarine 2 for 17 off 4 overs.
Young Warriors had no problem overhauling the total with their openers putting on 94 without loss in just 11 overs with Hetmyer blasting 73 off just 33 balls, which included 8 fours and 4 sixes, while his partner Wahied Edwards made 9 N.O.
Universal Solutions Bermine on the other hand did not find it that easy to defeat West Berbice to earn the other semifinal spot but eventually got home by 5 wickets. In the match played at Bush Lot in West Berbice, West Berbice took first strike and found the going tough against an accurate Bermine attack and were restricted to 113 for 6 in 20 overs with former Berbice under 19 batsman Rafael Estriado 28 and Steffon Adams 22. For Bermine, Canada and former Guyana pacer Jeremy Gordon, Berbice allrounder Romario Shepherd, Berbice off spinner Stephen Latcha and former Berbice left arm spinner Eugene LaFleur took one wicket each.
When Bermine began their reply, they lost former Guyana batsman Shemroy Barrington to Guyana pacer Raun Johnson off the 2nd ball of the first over for 0. The other opener, Leon Williams, a former Guyana Under-15 player, stood firm, putting on 24 for the 2nd wicket with former Berbice batsman Anthony D’Andrade (6), 28 for the 3rd wicket with Eugene LaFleur (13) and 21 for the fourth wicket with former Guyana Under-19 allrounder Joemal LaFleur (9) who fell at 74 for 4 after 12 overs.
Berbice allrounder Devon Clements came and supported Williams, the two putting on 36 valuable runs for the 5th wicket before the latter went for 44 (4 fours), caught off Johnson. Clements (12 no) and Shepherd (4 no) saw Bermine to 114 for 5 off 19.1 overs. Berbice off spinner Krishendat Ramoo took 2 for 26 from 4 overs.
