Cotton Tree Die Hard, Skeldon Community Centre and Rainbow Generator of Seafield have all advanced to the quarter finals of the 2013 New Building Society Second Division 40 Over Cricket Competition in Berbice after they won their respective play off matches.

Led by Roshan Gafoor who scored 58, Cotton Tree Die Hard hammered 211 in 39.2 overs against Fyrish, who in their tern at the crease led by former Berbice U 19 batsman Javed Mohamed with 62, gave good chase but eventually fell short by 19 runs.

All-rounder Balram Persaud slammed 75 to help No. 48 Challengers reach 171 all out in 30.5 overs against Skeldon Community Centre but then Darshanan Chalitar made 61 not out to guide Skeldon to an easy 6 wicket victory.

A 5 wicket haul from former Berbice U 19 cricketer, off spinner Michael Felix, helped Rose Hall Town Bakewell restrict Rainbow Generation to 167 but that proved too much for Rose Hall as they were bowled out for 138 in reply.
