Bay’s hopes of defending title dashed

St George's 234

Bailey's Bay 106

Not only will Bailey's Bay not be defending the Premier Division title they won last year, they aren't even likely to finish in the top four for a Belco Cup spot next year, following their crushing 128-run loss to St George's at Sea Breeze Oval.

Trailing leaders St David's by 49 points going into the weekend, Bay's hopes of a successful title defence was dashed by their defeat to St David's just before Cup Match. Yesterday they a heavy defeat — their fifth in 10 matches — as St George's collected their biggest scalp of the season to move ahead of Bay in the standings.

Admittedly Bay were missing three key players who are abroad, captain Stephen Outerbridge, vice captain Rodney Trott and youngster Tre Manders. St George's took advantage and posted 234 all out with captain Oronde Bascome leading the batting with 63 from five fours and two sixes while Jonathan Denbrook hit five fours and a six in his knock of 39 batting at number eight. Three other players got in the 20s, opener Chae Foggo with 29, and middle order pair Onias Bascome (25) and Macai Simmons (23).

Foggo and his captain added 106 for the second wicket after Damon Walker was dismissed with just three runs on the board.

Kyle Hodsoll was the pick of the Bay bowlers against his former team, claiming three for 63 from 10 overs while Lateef Trott took two for 25, Cal Dill two for 30 and Jamie Bean two for 51.

After the first 11 overs, Bay had slumped to 35-6 in replay as Cup Match colt Zeko Burgess and veteran Herbie Bascome shared the first six wickets with the new ball as Sinclair Smith, Azende Furbert, Terryn Fray, Ryan Steede and Cal Dill all failed to reach double figures.

Burgess finished with four for 45 from nine overs and Bascome three for 33 from 10 as Bay were dismissed in just 23.2 overs. Macai Simmons had two for 20 from four overs.

High man for Bay was number eight bat Lateef Trott with 20 while tail-ender Burton Outerbridge scored 18.

Flatts 146

St David's 147-5

Unbeaten St David's kept some distance between themselves and the chasing pack when they scored a comfortable five wicket win over Flatts at Lord's.

James Celestine hit 61 from four fours and four sixes to lead the Flatts batting while Vernon Eve scored 34. Flatts were dismissed in 44.3 overs as spinners Kameron Fox and Delyone Borden took seven wickets between them. Left-armer Fox claimed four for 30 off nine overs and Borden three for 30 from 10.

Borden, opening the St David's innings, then scored 48 and number three bat Fiqre Crockwell 38 as the pair put on 83 for the second wicket. Five Flatts bowlers took one wicket, with Kijuan Franks and Vernon Eve taking identical figures of one for 12 from six overs and five overs respectively.
