KINGSTON, Jamaica — Jahmar Hamilton made a battling century and Raymon Reifer fell just five runs short of three figures as West Indies A batted themselves into an almost impregnable position in the second unofficial four-day Test against touring England Lions at Sabina Park.

At close of play on Monday's second day, the Lions were 34 without loss in their second innings, and still trail by a 243 runs.

Before that the West Indies A piled up a first-innings score of 422 in response to the Lions' mediocre 145.

Scores: England Lions 145 (57 ovs) & 34-0 (18 ovs); West Indies A 422 (110.4 ovs)

Hamilton struck an even 100 for his sixth first-class hundred. The left-handed Reifer was dismissed on 95 to miss out on his second century at this level. The visitors' slow left-arm bowler Jack Leach took 6-138.

Behind by 277 runs, England Lions' openers Haseeb Hameed, not out on 18, and skipper Keaton Jennings, on 11, ensured they reached the close without any casualty.
