EXCITING WEEKEND OF CRICKET DRAWS OUT SPORTS STARVED RESIDENTS
Bermudians and residents alike reveled in the return of the national sport of cricket this weekend with matches at either ends of the Island playing to maximum gathering allowances and seeming space for more than the 250 special exemption number afforded by authorities.
There was a reported incident of inconvenience at Wellington Oval whereby a member of the local media was not allowed unpaid entry as is customary for members of the press supplying event coverage.
Willow Cuts v St. George’s
Willow Cuts won by four wickets at Wellington Oval
St. George’s Cricket Club 198-5 Willow Cuts 202-6
Willow Cuts thrilling victory from the match’s penultimate ball overshadowed the season’s first century by the east enders Onias Bascome yesterday at Wellington Oval.
Sergio Raynor put paid to St. George’s hopes as he guided Cuts past the required total on the back of an unbeaten knock of 35 not out.
This after the early groundwork has been laid by half centuries from openers Ras Burrows (53) and Kwasi James (59).
St. George’s owed their total to their captain, Bascome, who’s 111 included 14 fours and six sixes boundaries and a supporting innings of 57 not out from former skipper Macai Simmons.
St. David’s v Somerset
St. David’s won by 38 runs at Somerset Cricket Club
St. David’s 127-5 Somerset 89-6
The inability of Somerset’s batsmen to get the ball away despite playing among small confines at home served to deliver victory to St. David’s at Somerset Cricket Club.
St. David’s posted a modest 127-for-five based on a top score of 31 from veteran Sammy Robinson, with assistance from Derrick Brangman (28), Justin Pitcher (21) and a bevy of extras (24).
Meanwhile the west enders could only respond with 89 despite using all 20 overs and losing just six wickets, their batsmen rendered sedate by the Islanders’ attack and efficient outplay.
Flatts v Western Stars
Flatt’s won by 49 runs at Wellington Oval
Flatt’s 170-6 Western Stars 121-9
Flatts strolled past Western Stars with a 49 run triumph over Western Stars at Wellington Oval as they were led by a half-century from Regino Smith who top scored with 67.
Cofield Robinson assisted Smith with a fluent 37 from his bat.
Chief wicket taker for Stars was Seth Campbell as he returned figures of t the Western Stars bowlers with figures of three-for-20.
Western Stars responded with 121-for-nine, not nearly enough to cause concern among the Flatts’ camp.
Somerset Bridge v Cleveland

Somerset Bridge 109-8 Cleveland County 97-9
