Bowling for Port Elizabeth, T’wan Richards had 3/23 and Ormond Billingy 2/18.

Port Elizabeth’s response ended at 116 all out in 17.3 overs; Ashley Cordice top scored with 31 and Burton Forde contributed 20.

Glendell Gregg snared 3 for 26; Jefferson Richards took 2 for 7; Chelson Stowe had 2 for 18; and Garvin Ollivierre- 2 for 23, as Bequia United romped to a 79-run win and a place in the final.

Before Sunday’s final, the loser of Saturday’s other semi-final will meet Port Elizabeth in the third place play-off from 10 a.m.
