When the Competition got into overdrive last weekend, the four semi finalists emerged.

The unbeaten Rivals, and contenders to the title, made light work of North Leeward, beating them by ten wickets.

Rivals, led by Harley Skerritt’s 33 not out and Teran Harper 29 not out, reached 73 for no wicket.

Likewise, the 2007 and 2008 winners, Victors One, saw off Owia Stars by 76 runs.

Victors One posted 178 for 5. The in-form Donson Andrews made 68. Rawle Baptiste was Owia’s best bowler with 3 for 27. Owia Stars replied with 102. Atticus Browne took 3 for 24, bowling for Victors One.

Shirlon Pompey topped Bequia’s batting with 55, Shem Browne scored 46, Salvan Browne hit 24 and Cosmus Hackshaw chipped in with 23, as they took advantage of Saints, who could only field nine players.
