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

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
