United Survivors take revenge on Tigress in women’s cricket


Defending women’s 40 over champions United Survivors avenged an earlier defeat to JG Tigress, to leave the title race undecided right up to their last match.

The arch rivals of local women’s cricket squared off last Saturday at the Arnos Vale One Playing Field, in what could have been the decider, had JG Tigress been able to beat their opponents again.

But that was not to be, as United Survivors came away winners by 156 runs, avenging the earlier 52-run defeat.

Batting first, United Survivors posted 219 for 4 from their 40 overs. Cordel Jack stroked 62, Samantha Lynch, 51 and Shevern Clarke, 41 not out.

JG Tigress’ response never gained any momentum, as they were dismissed for a mere 63, from 23.4 overs.

Wrecking JG Tigress’ innings were Cordel Jack, who snared 4 for 8, Allison Antoine, 4 for 12 and Kimone Homer, 2 for 29, to win handsomely.

 The win ensured that United Survivors drew level on 40 points with JG Tigress, going into the last round of matches.

The last round of matches pit United Survivors versus Super Strikers, while JG Tigress face Radcliffe Girls.

A win for the two front runners would see them being declared joint champions.
