Smith stars as Rec cement top spot

Devonshire Rec bounced back from last weekend's loss to Flatts to beat St George's by 33 runs in a top-of-the-table Logic First Division clash at Devonshire Recreation Club on Sunday.

Starting at 1.35pm because of the rain, Rec posted 184 for eight in an innings reduced to 37 overs after being sent in by St George's. The East Enders made a solid reply with Oronde Bascome and Chae Foggo putting on 54 for the first wicket, before they slumped to 151 all out in 32.2 overs.

Top scorer for Devonshire Rec was Lamont Brangman, who scored 61 not out in 57 balls, hitting four fours and four sixes.

Xyion Smith scored 32 from 40 balls.

Oladapo Frederick scored 19 and Dennis Williams a valuable 16 in the tail end as he and Brangman put on 63 for the eighth wicket, taking the score from 118 to 181.

Onias Bascome and Macai Simmons, the St George's captain, claimed two wickets apiece, for 38 and 33 from eight overs. Detroy Smith, who shared the new ball with Ryan Steede, gave up just 23 runs in his seven overs, taking one wicket.

Oronde Bascome and Foggo gave St George's a solid start on a damp wicket, but after Foggo was dismissed for 13, two quick wickets followed, with brothers Onias and Oronde falling to the bowling of Xyion Smith.

Onias Bascome scored just one and Oronde Bascome a top knock of 33 from 49 balls. He hit three fours and two sixes.

Detroy Smith added 26 off 32 balls while Ankoma Cannonier scored 24 and Chris Foggo 20 in the middle order.

Smith took three for 28 in five overs, while Wilbur Burt claimed three for 29 off 7.2 overs, and Jamie Smith two for 31 in eight overs to help Rec remain in first place.
