Stars victory marred by injury to Jeffers

Injury concern: Western Stars opener Trejun Jeffers was forced off with a serious injury

Western Stars beat PHC by four wickets in the Twenty20 First Division but their victory was marred by an injury to opener Trejun Jeffers.

PHC posted just 77 in 14.1 overs, with JaiOnni Outerbridge their top scorer with 22 while Ori Wilson added 18, the pair putting on 44 for the first wicket in 7.3 overs before the innings crumbled with Dev Hanuman (12) the only other batsman in double figures.

Khiry Furbert claimed three for ten from three overs to lead the Stars bowling while Jayden Manders claimed two for 12 off four overs.

Stars lost three wickets inside the first six overs, including Jeffers who had a suspected dislocated knee while running between the wickets on the fourth ball of the first over. He was taken to hospital by ambulance.

Stars were 27 for three by the sixth over, before captain Seth Campbell and Rohan Davis put on 39 for the fourth wicket in four overs to ease them towards victory.

Campbell scored 16 and Davis 14 as Wilson took two for 16 and Kanaz Tuzo two for 26.

Devonshire Rec, the new Central Counties champions, slumped to a seven wicket defeat to Somerset Bridge while Somerset were comfortable seven-wicket winners over neighbours Willow Cuts at Somerset.

Rec found the going tough against the Bridge bowlers at White Hill, restricted to 76 for six in their 18 overs as Ajai Daniels was their top batman with 20. Cory Burgess and Noel Woods shared the six Rec wickets, each taking three for 12 from four overs.

Bridge wasted no time in reaching their target, scoring 78 for three in 12.3 overs with Jason Smith their top batsman with 31 not out from 33 balls, hitting three fours and a six.

He and captain Shawn Riley (13) put on 63 in an unbroken fourth wicket stand after Rec had them in early trouble at 15 for three after just 3.4 overs.

Xyon Outerbridge-Smith claimed two for 21 off four overs for Rec while Bevin Carr, his new ball partner, took one for eleven from four.

Willow Cuts went down to Somerset after posting 128 for six in their 20 overs.

Somerset replied with 132 for three with an over to spare as opener Alje Richardson scored 39 and Dalin Richardson, the under-19 Bermuda captain, 36 in a stand of 44 for the second wicket.

Earlier Dwight Basden was high man for Cuts with 30 not out at No 5 while captain Kwasi James scored 27. Justin Corday claimed three for 14 to lead the Somerset bowling.
