Bremar hits century as Rec bounce back
Steven Bremar struck 100 not out as Devonshire Rec recovered from last weekend's shock loss to the Bermuda Under-17s to record a ten-wicket win over a weakened Somerset Bridge yesterday at White Hill Field.
Bremar, the Rec captain, shared in an unbroken opening stand of 137 with Oladapo Frederick as Rec reached their target in 21.5 overs. Bremar hit 13 fours and four sixes as Bridge, the league leaders, tried in vain to get a breakthrough, using six bowlers.
Earlier Bridge had to rely on 42 not out from No 10 batsman Wayne Ball Jr to post their total of 135, the youngster hitting five fours in a last wicket stand of 50 with Anthony Tucker as they recovered from 85 for nine to reach 135. Paul Carr-Harvey led the Rec bowling with four for 17.
Western Stars kept up their push for promotion from the First Division with a six-wicket win over Warwick at Southampton Oval, dismissing Warwick for just 84 in 24.4 overs and reaching their target with the loss of four wickets.
Captain Jade Darrell was the top scorer for Warwick with 36 off 49 balls with six fours as Clay Darrell claimed three for 17, Jason Lowe three for 31 and Naquan Smith two for 20.
Tomiko Wilson, the captain, led the Stars run chase with 35 not out from six fours and a six off 44 balls.
Flatts made short work of the Bermuda Under-17 side on Saturday, bowling them out for just 52 in 16.5 overs, with only opener Nzari Paynter in double figures with ten runs as Darnielle Farrell claimed five for 11. Kijuan Franks took two for 13 and Nelson Bascome two for 16 in support.
Regino Smith was in a no-nonsense mood with the bat, scoring the bulk of Flatts' runs with 42 not out, as they took just 6.3 overs to reach their target, replying with 58 for one after Smith and Franks put on 37 for the first wicket.
Cleveland will be hoping their Junior Eastern Counties win over St David's by 33 runs will be a sign of things to come in the senior Counties first round on Saturday when the same two teams meet.
Cleveland scored 114 and then dismissed St David's for 81. Kristen Singh led the St David's batting with 31 off 47 balls while opener Isaiah greaves scored 16 and Keyoshi Robinson and Jabari Darrell 13 apiece. Blaiz Hall had impressive figures of three for seven from 5.4 overs with three maidens to lead the St David's bowling, while Shaddi Somersall claimed three for 23 from eight overs. Kash Hall and Aaron Paynter took two wickets each.
St David's were quickly three wickets down with just 12 runs on the board before No 5 batsman Devone Cheeseman saved them from total embarrassment, scoring 50 from 63 balls with eight fours and a six.
He was their only batsman in double figures as Sanchez Simons claimed three for nine from five overs and Isaiah Creighton three for 13 from six to led the Cleveland bowling. Q-shai Darrell took two wickets for one run from 3.5 overs.
