Sophia thumped St. Stanislaus by eight wickets and Third Class overcame Guyana Defence Force by seven wickets when the Georgetown Cricket Association (GCA)/New Building Society second division 40-over competition continued last weekend.
St. Stanislaus surprisingly opted to bat on a moist pitch after winning the toss and were shot out for a paltry 23 in 6.5 overs at Gandhi Youth Organisation ground. Pacers Khalil Ducan and Malcolm Morris rocked their top order reducing them to 10-4.
Aided by poor running between the wickets and shot selection thereafter, St. Stanislaus never recovered as no batsman managed double figures. Samuel King was the top scorer with five as Duncan finished with 3-7 and Morris 3-12 from three overs each.
Despite losing two wickets in their chase, Sophia hit off the required total in four overs, ending on 26-2. Miguel Vaughn made 10 as Lindon Wilson took 2-9.
The other matches that were scheduled to be played between Third Class and Demerara Cricket Club at Bourda and host GNIC and Guyana Defence Force were washed out with out a ball being bowled.
At GYO, GDF managed 151-8 off their reduced 33 overs batting first. Jeremiah Harris and Dennis Legay added 73 for the fourth wicket to steady their innings after they were placed on 61-3 before Legay was dismissed for 21. Harris slammed 55 (8×4), while Damien Ross struck 30 (6×4). Keon Bailey grabbed 3-26, Trevor Hossein 2-19 and Alvin Castello 2-32.
Third Class replied with 156-3 in 21.2 overs. Shivnanand Roopnarine stroked 69 (12×4,1×6) and shared in a fourth wicket stand of 108 with Andre O Neil 41 (3×4,3×6) after they lost three early wickets.
Castello chipped in with 24 (4×4,1×6) as Colin McPherson, Ravi Persaud and Marcus Watkins finished with one scalp each. The next game was set for GCC between the host and GNIC was called off due to rain. (Zaheer Mohamed)
