Locking horns at the Arnos Vale One Playing Field are defending champions Victors One and Rivals.

Rivals, however, have the upper hand over Victors One in the points standings, and are in pole position to be crowned the victors.

The other premier division fixture set for this weekend is at the Arnos Vale Two Playing Field, as Saints take on the News Spartans.

Action in the division returns, following last weekend’s break to allow the national players to perform duties in the Windward Islands T-20 tournament in St Lucia.

One match was, however, played in the National Lotteries Authority First Division at the Arnos Vale One Playing Field.

But it was one-way traffic, as Robertson’s Surveying Belmont United handed Sion Hill an innings and 36-run defeat.

Batting first, Sion Hill tumbled for 64, with Jerome Samuel claiming a hat-trick as he finished with 4 for 1.

Samuel then struck 67 and Augustus Mofford 31 not out, as Belmont replied with 177 for 9 declared.

Dwayne Bacchus took 3 for 25 and Brian Davis 2 for 12.

Batting a second time, Sion Hill made 77. Augustus Mofford claimed 5 for 11.

There is one first division fixture this weekend at the Buccament Playing Field, as Log Enterprises Masters engage Smashers.(RT)
