Low-Scoring Weekend In Region One
The wealth of runs seemed to have dried up for cricketers of Region One last weekend, as no team managed to pass 30 runs in any of the games played in the ongoing Super Sixes Tapeball Cricket Competition at Mabaruma.
The highest score was actually 27 runs, which was made by Wauna Primary and Hosororo Primary A on Saturday, and an extra over was needed to separate the two teams. Hosororo Primary batted first and were dismissed in 3.5 overs with only Louis Marques (25) offering any resistance. Roger Rammit then picked up 3 wickets for 8 runs from 1.5 overs as Wauna Primary stunningly failed to pass 27 runs, as they were skittled out in 4 overs. Morris Degois top-scored with 13. Wauna primary then emerged winners in the extra over allotted.
Also on Saturday, North West Secondary B, replying to Hosororo B’s 13 all out from 2.1 overs, won by 10 wickets. Rafael Skinner scored all the runs for the winning side and ended on 15 not out.
No game in the schools competition was possible on Sunday due to a bad pitch. However, the Village Competition saw Settlement taking an easy win over Barabina. Barabina took first strike and were rattled out for only 9 runs from 1.5 overs. Kurt McLennon had 3 wickets for 1 run from five balls. Settlement achieved victory on 11 runs from 1.3 overs.
The first round of games has now been completed and it is the hope that the sport would return to be a batsman’s game when second round matches are played on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
