Cunningham laces century in TBPO Softball Cricket Competition


Jabari Cunningham lashed 109 to see Gairy’s Construction Simple Boyz to 248 for 7 from 20 overs, against Smart Snipers, last Saturday at the Dauphine Playing Field, as the National Lotteries Authority Top Belair Progressive Organization’s 20/20 Softball Cricket Competition continued.

 Adding to Cunningham’s onslaught was Kentish Phillips, who compiled 60.

 In between the ball beating, Keithly Gordon gathered 3 for 28, Matthew John, 2 for 36 and Sedan Searles had 2 for 44.

 Smart Snipers’ response was feeble, as they caved in for 82 in 12.4 overs. Keithy Gordon followed up his bowling exploits with a score of 33, while for Simple Boyz, Ian Bushay with 2 for 1, Travis Cumberbatch, 2 for 4, Desron Maloney, 2 for 10 and Oswald Soleyn, 2 for 15, all combined to ensure their team’s comfortable win by 166 runs.

 Sunday’s proceedings got off to a late start, resulting in a 15-over per side showdown between Combine Rangers and Smart Snipers.

 After chasing the previous day, Smart Snipers batted first and their efforts were similar, scoring 94 for 8 from their 15 overs, with Sanchez Garraway scoring 20.

Bowling for Combine Rangers, Randel Carter had 2 for 10 and Nehemiah Harry, 2 for 17.

 Combine Rangers replied with 97 for 8 in 14.3 overs. Keith Gibson scored 19. Sedan Searles took 2 for 11, Harvan Smart, 2 for 22 and Sanchez Garraway, 2 for 28, but they were not able to either restrict or dismiss Combine Rangers’ batsmen. Combine Rangers won by two wickets.

 Sunday’s second match saw Country Meet Town Outa Trouble also securing a two-wicket win over Stingers.

But off the field, Stingers were awarded the points, as Outa Trouble had fielded a player, who had already appeared for another team in the competition.

 Stingers made 93 for 8 from their 20 overs. Daren Matthews scored 22 not out and Terrance Patterson, 19.

 Sunil James snared 2 for 10, bowling for Outa Trouble, whose batsmen laboured to 98 for 8 from 18.4 overs. Asif Hooper top scored with 34 and Richie Richards scored 32.

 Bowling for Stingers, Kenneal Skinner snared 3 for 18 and Jayvon Jack, 2 for 18.

 And, Dipcon Road Warriors beat Dr Thomas Injectors by eight wickets.

Injectors packed in at 61 all out from 11.1 overs, with Desron Lavia making 18.

 Injectors’ batsmen were demolished by the bowling of Chester Kiel, who took 3 for 5, Damon Mason, 3 for 16 and Kimali Williams, 2 for 6.

 Dipcon Road Warriors then replied with 64 for 2 in 10.2 overs. Kenny Stapleton led with 31.
