Former ASCO players hurt team in Premier Division cricket rout

Former ASCO players hurt team in Premier Division cricket rout


Two former players of Carl Joseph Law Chambers ASCO, Desron Maloney and Darius Martin, ganged up to hand their former team a crushing innings and 81-run defeat, in the National Lotteries Authority Premier Division of the national cricket programme, last weekend.

The two, along with their accomplice Kenneth Dember, were the headliners for Police Two at the Sion Hill Playing Field.

Batting first, Maloney struck 91 and Kevin Abraham, 32, in Police Two’s total of 258 all out.

Bowling for ASCO, Konnard Adams took 3 for 53 and Andre Hunte, 3 for 68.

ASCO’s frail batting collapsed for 98, under the bowling of Dember, who bagged 6 for 38, while Kenroy Martin, 2 for 20 and Sylvan Spencer, 2 for 23, were the support cast.

Durant Nero, 35 and Kenvil Sam, 32, shared in a seventh-wicket partnership of 68, to pull ASCO from 6 for 6.

Asked to follow on, ASCO fared worse, bundled out for 69, as Darius Martin snared 6 for 15 and Dember, 3 for 36. Dember had match figures of 9 for 74.

But there was more of a contest at the Arnos Vale Playing Field when Team Rivals met last year’s champions, FLOW Radcliffe.

Choosing to bat, Radcliffe put together 178 all out.

Romano Pierre celebrated his call-up to the senior SVG team with 75 not out, as he carried his bat, while Gidron Pope contributed 37.

Asif Hooper was the main destroyer for Team Rivals, taking 5 for 30, while Obed Mc Coy picked up 2 for 62.

Team Rivals fell into early trouble at 34 for 4 and were 97 for 7, but recovered to be dismissed for 147.

Rasheed Fredericks top scored with 28, while Richie Richards bagged 4 for 46 and Delorn Johnson, 3 for 33, bowling for Radcliffe.

Batting a second time, Radcliffe reached 82 for 2 when play was called. Gidron Pope was left not out on 50.

ASCO will try and save face this weekend, when they meet Guardian General Saints, in the lone fixture, set for the Sion Hill Playing Field.
