William âBillâ Edwards, Shammon Hooper and Ronnique Laborde all hit centuries last weekend in the National Lotteries Authority First Division of the national cricket competition.

Playing for Ruddyâs Electrical Unique Warriors, Edwards slammed 144 off the Prime Consulting Marriaqua bowlers, last Sunday at the Stubbs Playing Field.
His knock contained 7 fours and 14 sixes, as Unique Warriors posted 336 for 9 from 47 overs.
Also contributing were 80 extras conceded by Marriaqua, while Christopher Campbell scored 35.
Bowling for Marriaqua, Jamali Wales picked up 3 for 60, Suneel Paul, 2 for 37 and Glenroy Jacobs, 2 for 57.
Marriaquaâs reply was short-circuited by Ansil Hooper, who bagged 4 for 24 and Leon Samuel, 3 for 19, as they folded for 124 off 33 overs.
