Tucber Park defeat Blairmont for semifinal spot

Gevon Shultz 

TTucber Park Cricket Club moved one step closer on their championship quest in the Ramnaresh Sarwan/ Berbice Cricket Board under-17 tournament when they registered a three-run win over Blairmont Cricket Club in a low scoring thriller on Sunday.

Playing at the Rose Hall Canje Ground, Berbice Tucber Park took first strike but the Blairmont bowlers were on full display with National under-17 player Seon Glasgow bagging 4-10 from six overs while Akash Harilall snared 3-9 from eight overs as Marvan Prashad claimed 2-7 to dismiss Tucber Park for 56 in just 24 overs. 

 Guyana under-17 all-rounder, Gevon Shultz was the pick of the batsman with a top score of 17.

In a nerve-rocking tit for tat, the Tucber Park bowlers were hard-pressed to showcase their talent with Shultz returning to claim 3-14 while Dilshan McDonald was incredible with figures of 4-4. Abdul Ramsammy and N. Yearwood also bagged one wicket each as Blairmont fell three runs short in their chase with Nigel Deodat top scoring with 16.

Tucber Park will now face Albion Cricket Club at Albion today with the winner moving into the finals against Rose Hall Town Bakewell who drew a bye to the finals by virtue of being the winner in their clash against Port Mourant.
