The curtain will come down on the Guyana Floodlight Softball Cricket Association (GFSCA) Mike’s Pharmacy/Nauth Motor Spares/Trophy Stall senior softball tournament tomorrow with a handful of games, including three finals booked for the Demerara Cricket Club Ground (DCC), Queenstown.

Over the years T20 softball cricket has gathered a huge contingent of followers and nothing less than a packed venue is expected as the fans turn out in their numbers to see the big hitting abilities of both men and women in showdown of the champions.

The day’s play will begin promptly at 09:30h with the females clashing to see who will advance to the final later in the day and take home the $50,000 and trophy first prize.

The losing finalist is guaranteed the second place prize of $25,000 plus trophy.

On pitch one, Trophy Stall Angels will go head-to-head with Blue Divas while pitch two will see Wellwoman facing 4R Lioness.

The men’s final will see Wellman coming up against a strong Regal Masters side for the championship at 11:30h. Regal Masters will be looking to the likes of Mahase Chunilall and Eric Thomas for their big hitting abilities while Laurie Singh and David Harper are deadly with the ball. But Wellman would be dangerous should Mike Singh and Manoj Arjune find their rhythm

Meanwhile, the big showdown will see Speedboat taking on Success in the Open final to see who takes home the $100,000 payout first prize, a trophy and bragging rights.

However, no team will leave empty handed as the runners up will take home $25,000 and a trophy.

In addition to the team prizes, player of the matches will also receive $5000 and a trophy.

The tournament was initially expected to conclude in November, 2017 but the rain had the better of the competition, forcing it to be pushed back into the new year. Admission is free.
