Campbell takes hat trick


A hat trick by Christopher Campbell was the highlight of last weekend’s fixtures in the Masters Over 40’s cricket competition. Campbell captured 4 for 35, but his team Stubbs was still at the losing end.

Stubbs scored 122 for 7, with Samuel Williams making 58. Bowling for Belfongo Sylvanus Morgan took 2 for 12 and Samuel Holder 2 for 20. Theodore Huggins 29, Morgan 25 not out and Wendell Glasgow 22 led Belfongo’s successful run chase as they reached 123 for 7.{{more}}

In another top performance, Collin Shoy hit 98 and with Samuel Laborde shared a 175 fourth wicket partnership for Mr. Cool as they posted 187 for 5 against Ajuba . Federal Jeffery 2 for 18 and Bernard Allen 2 for 37 were the successful bowlers.

Undaunted by the score, David Ellis 74 not out, Reginald Jeffery 35 not out and Conroy Ryan 27, responded well as Ajuba totalled 189 for 4 in 17.4 overs.

At London, Minister of Agriculture Montgomery Daniel earned the man of the match award for his 46 for North Windward against Richards Masters. Daniel’s innings pushed his team to 148 for 9, with Patmos Richards topping the bowling with 4 for 15.

Richards Masters could only reach 102 for 8 in their 20 overs. Jerry Shallow topscored with 20, as Ashford Lorraine 2 for 13 and Vernon Byran also 2 for 13 chartered their team’s victory.

And while Richards Masters were losing their third match on the trot, Sion Hill made it two victories in succession.

Cecil Charles 3 for 9, and Gary Rodrigues 3 for 13, ensured Police were dismissed for 61. Sion Hill erased the total reaching 63 for the loss of one wicket.

With three round of matches gone, defending champion Belfongo remain firmly positioned with three wins.
