St George’s make it three from three
St George’s made it three wins from three after comfortably beating Western Stars by nine wickets at St John’s Field yesterday.
Stars batted first and scored 91 all out from 32.4 overs, the third straight match they have failed to score 100, before St George’s quickly completed the win after replying with 92 for one in just 12.3 overs as the win was wrapped up at 2.35pm.
Openers Temiko Wilson and Mishael Paynter scored 68 for the first wicket when Wilson was bowled by Swayne Campbell for 37.
Paynter, who hit 155 against Somerset last weekend, finished with 30 not out after he and Onias Bascome reached the target before tea. Earlier Bascome claimed five for 17 from 8.4 overs, while captain Macai Simmons claimed two for 14 and player-coach Ryan Steede two for 21.
Nyon Steede and Campbell scored 14 apiece to lead the Stars batting in another low total.
• Western Stars suffered defeat on Saturday after losing by ten wickets to Southampton Rangers at Southampton Oval.
Stars, who had just nine men, and were put in by Rangers, posting 65 in just 20.5 overs as opener Malachi Jones took two for 17 and Lamont Brangman two for five off just five balls to end the innings. Rangers replied with 66 without loss, with Jones scoring 24 and Shannon Raynor 33 as openers Seth Campbell and Tybrae Robinon gave up 27 and 26 runs, respectively, in their two overs.
