Led by 19 from former National U-19 off-spinner Clive Andries who also represented Guyana in Football, Buxton fell for 62 from 19 overs after electing bat. Buxton slumped to 10-4 in the 5th over and when Andries was trapped LBW at 40-5, the rest of the batting unit could only muster 22 runs.

Number nine batsman N. Gobin went on the attack and plundered 25 runs in a brave effort that saw the crowd cheering in what turned out to be a game changing innings in a fantastic low scoring encounter.
