Another former national player, and who still turns out for Eat Rite Saints in the RBTT Premier Division here, Ted Roberts, made 29 and Lester Benn struck 27 not out. They were the main contributors with the bat.

Replying, Panthers made 203 for 9. Shazad Uthat topped scored with 75.

Dominic Audain, 3 for 35, Ephrain Bacchus, 3 for 41, Ezekiel ‘Sports’ Williams, 1 for 15, Sherwin Bazil, 1 for 23, and Mark Audain, 1 for 43, ensured Cavaliers triumph.
