United Survivors’ response stopped at 156 for 8 from their 30 overs.

Samantha Lynch led the way with 61 in a losing cause.

Hazel Foster followed up her batting efforts, as she took 2 for 30, bowling for Garifuna Stars.

In the other fixture played at the Arnos Vale Two Playing Field, also on Saturday, JG Tigress struggled to beat their sister team Rising Stars.

Rising Stars were dismissed for 76 in 24.1 overs; Xaviah Matthews top scored with 19, as La Toya Providence snared 4 for 9.
