– Port Mourant and Corriverton also advance
After Betsy Ground Triple Star posted a fairly challenging 195 in 32 overs with opening batsman Lawrence Bassant
contributing 55 against D’Edward in their playoff of the 2014 New Building Society Limited Second Division 40 Over Cricket Competition in Berbice, D’Edward in their reply lost a wicket off the first ball but with Heeralall Bridgelall to the crease, runs flowed very quickly. He put on 116 for the 2nd wicket with former Berbice all rounder Eon Abel (13) and another 50 for the 3rd wicket with Berbice Under-19 all rounder Kevon Jawahir (10) before he fell for 105 which included 9 fours and 8 sixes. Skipper Jaipaul Heeralall scored a rapid 41 not out to see D’Edward home in just 24.3 overs losing 4 wickets, thus qualifying for the quarterfinals of the competition.
Also through to the quarterfinals are Port Mourant and Corriverton who both won their respective playoff matches. Port Mourant with former national all-rounder Loyydel Lewis scoring 66 (4 fours), made 168 in 36 overs against Springlands who could only respond with 108, while Corriverton for their part bowled out Big Star of Ulverston for 109 thanks mainly to off spinner Eric Phillips who took 6 for 30 from 4.5 overs. In reply, Jeremy Moore with 41 not out and Anthony Seeraj 40 not out steered Corriverton to a nine wicket victory.
