The 10-man Ace Warriors side batted first and lost wickets at regular intervals until their innings was completed at 9 for 129 after a mere 24 overs. Their only resistance came from Randy Blair who scored 54 with three sixes and two fours while the next highest contribution in the Ace Warrior innings was the 37 yielded by extras. Damian Vantull was the pick of the bowlers with 4 for 35 from eight overs while Dennis Heywood collected 3 for 44.Wicketkeeper Clevon Hyman enjoyed a good day behind the stump with six dismissals. The University of Guyana (UG) openers raced to the target in 17 overs. Dwayne Dodson and Nicholas Carryl hit 60 and 30 runs respectively to ensure Ace Warriors finished the tournament winless. The bowler’s didn’t do much to aid their cause as they conceded a further 32 extras.
