Regional U19 player, Kweise Edmondson, slammed his maiden century in
leading Metropolitan CC (2-0) to an impressive victory over Nashville
(0-1) during the second round of the GSCL season. Edmondson’s ton
followed up his equally impressive 82 in the opening round last week in
a nail biter, as MCC edged International CC.
The young talented batsman now seems to have blossomed into a
formidable force, fulfilling some of the early promising signs he
displayed at the U15 level. The exclamation point of his innings was a
towering six that sailed out of the grounds, as he moved from 95 to 101
to complete his hundred and end the game.
Scores: Nashville 163 all out; Dass 52, E. Burnett 29, Wade 2 for 19; MCC 169 for 4; Edmondson 101 n.o, Mascoll 26.
In other games:
Mark Trail – Defending champs, Vibes Sports Club blazed their way to a
2-0 start with an emphatic 9 wicket win over ICC. Set the meager target
of 98 for victory, after McFarlane (4 for 20) and Thomas (3 for 15) had
wrecked ICC, Vibes, led by Jowayne Powell’s 72 n.o, blasted their way
home in just 7 overs.
At Burdett Park – UBACCC with new additions – Ken Wright and Mark
Mumby – strolled over CHCC by 62 runs to also move to 2-0. Taylor with
71, and Lawrence with 57 led the way as UBA racked up 224 for 5 off the
allotted 40 overs. CHCC, 162 all out, came up short.
Pic (Right): Anthony Graham got 3 for 20
At Lithonia Park – A blistering century opening stand between Lindo
and James led Tropical to an easy 9 wicket victory over Wanderers CC.
Batting first, Wanderers, with Plummer top scoring with 28, were
restricted to 129 all out, being held in check by Slocombe (3 for 19)
and Graham (3 for 20). Lindo (60 n.o) and James (40) then made quick
work of the target as Tropical moved to 2-0. Wanderers fell to 0-2.
