In reply, Fairbaine Spartans United made 106 for 7 from their 18 overs. Javid Cordice was the topscorer with 39.

Kerwyn Browne scalped 2 for 10, Randolph Bascombe, 2 for 20 and Roneke James, 2 for 21.

In game two on Saturday, which was then reduced to 15 overs because of a late start, Country Meet Town Outa Trouble outplayed Computec Older Boys by ten wickets.
