Port Maria re­main un­beaten in St Mary BPL

Daily Observer (Jamaica) - - SPORT -

Port Maria tur­bos re­mained the only un­beaten team in the Cost­ley Con­struc­tion st Mary Bosco­bel Pre­mier League when they stopped the high-rid­ing Day’s Moun­tain strik­ers by three wick­ets with three balls to spare, in an ex­cit­ing en­counter at Bosco­bel oval on sun­day.

In the other match played, Bosco­bel War­riors de­feated Jack’s River Ra­zors by 88 runs.

In the fea­ture match, it was Port Maria who won the toss and sent Day’s Moun­tain in to bat. The pre­vi­ously un­beaten Day’s Moun­tain strug­gled from the out­set be­fore scor­ing 121 for seven off their 20 overs. Skip­per Samuel Mcin­tosh with 34 and Re­nar Ross with 29 were the top bats­men. D Royal (4-20) and Taswayne Creary (3-19) were the bowl­ing stal­warts for the Port Maria team.

Port Maria, in their knock, were paced by a cap­tain’s knock of 34 not out from for­mer West Indies Un­der-19 youth cap­tain An­dre Creary and brother Taswayne Creary (23). Jesse Alexan­der (2-15) was the top bowler for Day’s Moun­tain.

It was Jack’s River Ra­zors who won the toss and in­serted Bosco­bel, who racked up 174 for four off the match re­duced to 18 overs, with Del­roy Pat­ter­son slam­ming 57 and Adrian Ster­ling, 34, against Ke­mar Sil­vera 2-27 off four overs. Pat­ter­son was in a sav­age mood, smash­ing the bowl­ing to all parts of the ground with ad­mirable sup­port from the able Ster­ling.

In their turn at the crease, the vaunted Jack’s River bat­ting failed to sparkle, with only Richardo Thomp­son, who top-scored with 36, and Steve Wil­liams, 11 not out, mak­ing any sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion against Ty­rone Da­ley with 4-18 off four overs and Ja­son Gold­son (3-22).
