Off-Spinner Dwain Dick had 5-41, while Ranole Bourne had 2-53 for GNIC who responded with 337-7 declared after resuming yesterday on 130-3.
The Left-handed De Sousa blasted eight fours and seven sixes in a magnificent 174 and shared in a 154-run stand with Jermaine Grosvenor who reached the boundary three times and cleared it once in his 52. Dwain Dick and his uncle David Dick both made 35.

Eon Rodrigues (30), Quentin Sampson (27) and Raun Johnson (26*) were the other batsmen to reach 25 as USA based First-Class leg-spinner took 4-43 and got support from off-spinner Richie Looknauth (3-56) and 18-year-old Antiguan Franchise player left-arm pacer Javier Spencer, who bowled with some pace to take 2-37.
Everest replied with 213 with Renee leading the way with five fours and a six in his 53. Kamesh Yadram hit three fours and a six in 43, while Wicketkeeper Joseph (25) and Troy Gonsalves (21) offered token resistance.
Rodrigues had 3-47, Anthony Adams got 3-48 and Jason Heyliger 2-25 bowled well for Police who declared on 250-9 in their second innings.

Kevin Boodie and Ameer Khan chipped with 22 each, while Kevin Christian made 24.
Gonsalves, who was roughed up by Sampson who clobbered him for a few sixes, had 4-70, while Looknauth took 2-37.
At DCC, Windies U-19 left-arm spinner Ashmead Nedd’s five-wicket haul, a seven-wicket match return from left-arm wrist spinner Totaram Bishun and 71 from Joshua Persaud powered DCC to victory over GDF in 22 minutes into the final day of a game in which 29 wickets tumbled on Saturday.
