–Chase battle Mahaicony Secondary in feature match
By Sean Devers
The first Demerara semi-final in the GCB/MOE/DELAS National Secondary School’s 30-over cricket
tournament between West Demerara Secondary and St Cuthbert Mission which was set for yesterday at the Meten-Meer-Zorg ground in West Coast Demerara was washed out and will be replayed on Monday at the same venue from 11:00hrs.
The other semi between National defending Champions Chase Academy and host Mahaicony Secondary is scheduled for Tuesday at the Fairfield ground in what is expected to be the feature game, since both teams have players who have done well in the district finals.
The contest should be competitive despite the home team being the underdogs in their own back yard and they will bank heavily on Paul Durga and Omprakash Barrat.
The City champs have in their team National U-17 players Ashmead Nedd and Sachin Singh while Dwayne Dick just missed a century in the Georgetown final against Charlestown Secondary at DCC.
