Victors One regain national T/20 Cricket title
Victors One, the 2011 National Lotteries Authority / RBTT Premier Division winners of the national Cricket Competition, added another piece of silverware to their trophy cabinet, when they collected the 2012 National Lotteries Authority Neil Williams Twenty/20 accolade.
Victors One, which previously had three consecutive liens on the national T/20 title, added their fourth when they locked away RSVG Police last Sunday at the Arnos Vale Playing Field by 28 runs.
Batting first, Victors One scored 126 for 7 from their 20 overs. Leading their batting was Atticus Browne who made 34; Dowell Hector struck 24 and Miles Bascombe 23.
Osrick James took 4 for 22, bowling for Police Two.
In reply, the law officers faltered in their chase, and were dismissed for 98 in 19.2 overs.
Mc Leon Williams scored 36, as Ray Jordan grabbed 3 for 15, Atticus Browne 3 for 16 and Alston Bobb 2 for 6.
It was sweet revenge for the Victors outfit, which lost to Police Two in their opening fixture of the preliminary round of the competition.
En route to the title, Victors One stopped Team Rivals from a repeat of the title, with a 20 run triumph over the 2011 winners on Saturday in the second semi finals, also played at the Arnos Vale One Playing Field.
Donwell Hector struck 31, Miles Bascombe 21, in Victors Oneâs total of 113 for 8 from their 20 overs. Kesrick Williams was the pick of Team Rivals bowling with 3 for 23.
Team Rivals never got their tactics right and were dismissed for 93 in 19.2 overs. Norlan Williams snared 4 for 13 and Ray Jordan 2 for 10, bowling for Victors One.
Harley Skerritt was the main contributor in Team Rivals response with 25.
In the other semi finals also played on Saturday at the same venue, RSVG Police humbled Owia Stars by 34 runs.
Salvan Browne hit 72 and Gosnel Cupid 20, as Police got up to 149 for 6, from their 20 overs. Bowling for Owia, Jent Lavia picked up 3 for 26.
Owia was strangled by the bowling of Kenroy Martin who hauled in 3 for 20, and could only make 115 for 7, from their allotment. Shem Browne found time though to hit a topscore 56, patterning what his elder Salvan, did for RSVG Police. (RT)
