Rose Hall Town Farfan & Mendes are through to the final of the Tenelec Inc. Under-15,
Two-innings Cricket Competition in Berbice. Led by the brilliance of the two national Under-15 cricketers Junior Sinclair and Kevlon Anderson – they beat old rivals Tucber Park emphatically on first innings in their drawn semi-final match.
In the match which was played at the Rose Hall Town Ground, Tucber Park inserted Rose Hall and struck early as Surendra Budhoo fell to Bharrat Bhopal for 0 at 10 for 1 in the fourth over. Their elation was however short lived, as the other opener Sinclair was joined by Anderson and they went on to put on 130 for the 2nd wicket before Anderson fell to Leon Swami for 63 (7 fours).
Sinclair continued, putting on 50 for the 4th wicket with Berbice Under-15 batsman Keith Simpson (23) and 40 for the 5th wicket with Quesi Crandon (20) before he (Sinclair) was caught for a well played 90 (8 fours and 3 sixes). Rose Hall eventually made 257 all out. Bowling for Tucber Park, Leon Swami took 3 for 42, Nikeem Noble 3 for 60, Bharrat Bhopal 2 for 26 and Brandon Stewart 2 for 52.
When Tucber Park replied, they too lost an early wicket. However, Guyana Under-17 batsman Steve Deonarine and last year’s Guyana Under-15 selectee Garfield Benjamin looked threatening together but after they had added 36 between them, offspinner Sinclair removed Benjamin for 19 and Ravishkar Budhoo for 0 to reduce them to 48 for 3. Deonarine soon went the run out route for 29, ending any serious resistance with only Brandon Stewart making 29 N.O. to take Tucber Park to 119 for 9 at which point they declared. Sinclair ended with 4 for 33, Keith Simpson 2 for 30 and Brandon Corlette 2 for 12.
Tucber Park’s hope to bowl out Rose Hall Town cheaply in their 2nd innings to snatch a come-from-behind outright win looked promising when legspinner Stewart removed Corlette for 0 at 6 for 1. Their hopes were dashed once again by Sinclair and Anderson who batted Tucber Park out of the game by putting on 106 for the 2nd wicket. They both fell to Stewart, Sinclair for 63 and Anderson for 62 and with Surendra Budhoo making 32 and Keith Simpson 23, Rose Hall was able to declare at 209 for 6. Stewart took 5 for 70.
Tucber Park facing a daunting target of 348 with 180 minutes play left, managed to reach 137 for 3 at the end with Deonarine batting well for 65 while Benjamin made 24. For Rose Hall, Simpson took 2 for 28.
Rose Hall Town therefore joins Blairmont Community Centre in the final which is scheduled for this coming Saturday and Sunday at Blairmont.
