Bermuda Under-19 defeat Warwick with help of older heads

The Bermuda Under-19 team upset previously unbeaten Warwick with a little help from guest players Dion Stovell and Alex Dore to chalk up their first win of the season at Southampton Oval on Saturday.

All-rounder Jermal Proctor was top performer with bat and ball as he thumped a blistering half-century and claimed three wickets to guide his team to a convincing 148-run success in the First Division 50 overs contest.

Proctor struck a game high 68 off as many balls, which included 11 fours, and added 97 for the first wicket with fellow opening batter Dore in a solid foundation with the under-19s going on to make 246 in 45.2 overs after being sent in to bat.

Stovell scored 51 off 62 balls with three fours and two sixes, while Dore added 45 from 46, including nine boundaries.

Malachi Jones (three for 25) and Shonari Boyles-Simon (three for 46) led the Warwick bowling.

In reply, Warwick were in deep trouble at 42 for five in the tenth over, with Proctor claiming three of the early wickets with his seam bowling, including the prized scalp of experienced all-rounder Jones for two.

First-change bowler Zakao Hart also picked up three quick wickets to keep the pressure on the Warwick batters, while third and fourth-change bowlers Callum MacIntosh and Enrique Minks mopped up the tail, bagging two wickets each as Warwick were dismissed for 98 in 16.5 overs.

Proctor took three for 19 and sent down one of only three maidens in the match, while Hart bagged three for 23, MacIntosh two for 14 and Minks two for just six runs.

Captain Staphen Dill topped the Warwick batting with 36, while Akeem Ible (15), Luke Horan (12) and Luke Fulton (11) were the only others in double figures.

Capitalising on Warwick’s slip-up were PHC, who beat Flatts by seven wickets at PHC Field on Sunday to maintain their unbeaten record for the season.

All-rounder Kevin Lambe led the charge as he claimed four wickets to help dismiss Flatts for 85 in 19.1 overs and then stroked six boundaries in an unbeaten 31 from 36 balls as PHC replied with 87 for 3 in 13.5 overs.

Flatts’ decision to bat first backfired as they struggled to score runs with Chris Douglas also wreaking havoc with the ball for PHC as he took three for 16 from just 3.1 overs, while new-ball bowler Darrien Gibbons took a tidy two for 17 from six overs, which included three maidens.

Opener Jan-Johan Nel (27) and wicketkeeper Kijuan Franks (19) were the only Flatts batters in double figures.

Lambe and fellow opener, PHC captain Davin Dill, added 45 for the first wicket to get the chase off to a solid start.

PHC lost two wickets in the space of 12 runs to slip to 77 for three before Lambe and Gibbons knocked off the remaining runs, the latter batter dispatching Flatts second-change bowler Sai Kuman to the boundary ropes to clinch victory with plenty to spare.

Also recording their first win of the season were Somerset Bridge, who beat Western Counties rivals Southampton Rangers by seven wickets at White Hill Field in the other First Division clash on Sunday.

Bridge dismissed Southampton for 128 in 31.4 overs after the away side elected to bat and then replied with 129 for three in 21.3 overs.

All-rounder Shawn Riley was Bridge’s standout performer, taking four wickets and stroking a breezy 45 to lead the run chase.

Riley bagged three for 28 from just 5.4 overs, while Kareem Hollis (two for 21), Donnie Charles (two for 26) and Callum MacIntosh (two for 19) took two each.

Riley was also impressive with the bat facing the new ball at the top of the order, with his aggressive 44-ball innings containing two sixes and four boundaries.

He added 65 for the second wicket after fellow opening batter Neil Thakur departed in the fourth over of the second innings but was denied a half-century after being dismissed five runs short of the milestone.

Wicketkeeper Adrian Burrows (eight not out) joined Samir Tavares at the crease after Riley’s dismissal and together the pair produced a match-winning partnership of 42 runs to carry Bridge across the line without further damage.

Bridge’s top-order batters all made starts, with Thakur stroking 16, Jason Smith 17 and Tavares an unbeaten 27.

Micah Wellman was Southampton’s top scorer with 23 while captain Dalin Richardson, Swayne Campbell and Lekan Scott accounted for the Bridge wickets to fall.
