Despite going down by 59 runs to New Opportunity Corps (NOC) Select XI in the last of three matches, Wakenaam emerged champions of the Trophy Stall U19 50-over tournament which concluded recently.
Wakenaam registered comfortable victories in the first and second matches which were played on a home and away basis, but the lads from the Essequibo Coast salvage some pride in the third game which was contested recently at Golden Fleece.
Batting first, NOC Select XI managed 184 all out in 35 overs. Azim Fredericks made 45, Orlando Jailall 38 and Shane Wong 36. Beesham Moses captured 3-24 and Mahase Ramnarine 3-31. Wakenaam responded with 129 all out in 29 overs. Reon Fredericks struck 37 and Ramnarine 15. Matthew Chaitram had 2-21 and Sheldon Anthony 2-24.
The tournament was organised by Coaches Forbes Daniels and Nandkishore Andrews as part of cricket development in Essequibo. Coach of the Wakenaam U19 side Andres said the tournament has exposed young talent and wants to see more cricket of this nature being played. He added that the players showed that they what it takes to excel and urged them to remain committed. NOC Select XI Coach Daniels stated that this tournament will motivate the youths and expressed gratitude to Ramesh Sunich of Trophy Stall while adding that he is looking forward to his continued support. Both teams received trophies, while Moses was named man-of-the-series.
