The Guyana Defense Force (GDF), yesterday, collected first innings points from the University of Guyana (UG) and ended day one on 200 for nine at GDF in the weekends lone Noble House Seafoods Georgetown Cricket Association (GCA) two-day second division match.

 The day began with UG winning the toss and electing to bat. The students, however, folded for 142 as off-spinner Damion Waldron snared 8 for 25 to rip through UG’s middle order.

 Mahendra Persaud top-scored for the students and missed out on a half-century, scoring 49. He got support from number eight Kierre Henry (30) who was the only other significant scorer. 

 GDF’s in their first innings response, ended the day on 200 – 9, taking first innings and accumulated a lead of 58 runs, heading into the final day.   The soldiers received a solid opening stand of 92 from last week’s centurion Leon Andrews (54) and Kurt Lovell (39) before the middle order found scoring tough against off-spinners Ershaad Ali and Dennis Heywood who have so far taken four wickets each.

 Play resumes at 10:30 hours today.
