Everest coasted to a seven wicket win over St Stanislaus College while Transport, GCC and defending champions DCC secured wins in the final group matches of the Guyana Diabetic Association (GDA)/ Georgetown Cricket Association (GCA) Under-17 T20 tournament.
St Stanislaus batted first reaching 50 without loss at the halfway stage of the innings but quickly collapsed and lost five wickets without adding a single run as Marlon Boele (4-15) and Raynaldo Mohamed (2-3) ripped through the inexperienced side.
Mohamed returned with the bat to score 23 but soaked up 40 deliveries as Saints chipped away at the wickets. However, Niran Bissu came in to smack 29 from 23 balls to see Everest home with four overs to spare.
Earlier, DCC romped to a five-wicket victory and remain unbeaten despite a scare from GNIC. DCC dismissed GNIC for 77 and tinkered with the batting line up. As wickets tumbled regularly, the equation came down to 14 runs from 14 balls before the ever dependent, Sachin Singh finished it off in style with two sixes into Carifesta Avenue off of successive deliveries and an easy boundary through cover to finish unbeaten in 29.
Over at Malteenoes, Gandhi Youth Organization decided to bat but were dismissed for 71 in 14.2 overs despite Dwain Dick’s half century.
GCC duly chased down the total losing five wickets Rovaldo Phillips finished with a six to carry GCC to 75-5 in 16.4 overs.
Meanwhile, Transport posted 132-4 with Davanad Khemraj top scoring with an unbeaten 60 that proved to be vital as Malteenoes, playing at home, struggled to 103-9 to lose by 29 runs.
Khemraj (4-11) and Andrew Samaroo (3-26) were the main wicket takers.
