A good all-round team performance saw Braeton Red Caps defeat GC Foster College by one wicket during their Zone A encounter at Portsmouth in the 2013 Wray & Nephew/Portmore Cricket Association Club T/20 Championships last week Sunday to hand the latter their first defeat in five matches.

Scores: GC Foster (121-7 from 20 overs); Braeton Red Caps (125-9 from 20 0vers).

Batting first on a slow pitch, GC Foster posted 121-7 from their allotted 20 overs, and Wayne Davis led the way with a top-score of 31 from 21 deliveries. His knock included three fours and a lone six, Stephen Palmer added a patient 19 from 24 balls, while Kanaya Barrett blasted 12 not out from eight balls which contained two boundaries to ensure their team posted a reasonable total.

Keron Davis was Braeton's best bowler with 2-17 from his fours overs.

In reply, Braeton Red Caps got off to a flying start with a half-century-opening partnership as Philip Pinnock led the chase with a superb knock of 36 from 32 balls. He smashed five fours and a six before his partner, Kemar Mussington, was bowled for 13 (14) at 1-53. Braeton were in a bit of trouble when they lost their next five wickets for just 24 runs, but Marlon Campbell 17 (27) then steadied the chase a bit.

Needing three runs to win from the last over, Braeton gathered up two runs off five balls before Christopher Smith smashed the last delivery for a boundary to formalised the victory against Odane Vassell 2-10, Gavin Wallace 2-16 and Shawn Headlam 2-27.

In the second game at the venue, Waterford CC continued their unbeaten run with a comprehensive 130-run win over the winless Passagefort. Batting first, Waterford CC amassed 185-2 from their allotted 20 overs, which saw Richard Allen and Horace Miller putting on the highest second-wicket partnership so far in the tournament of 168 runs after Richard Johnson was bowled for 8 at 1-11.

Allen, hitting his second half-century in the competition, scored 79 from just 63 deliveries with seven fours and two sixes, while Miller top-scored with 82 not out. Miller's knock included seven fours and three sixes from a mere 50 balls to carry the score to 179-2. Roland Henry was the other batsman not out on zero.

Raymond Hart and Vivian Stapleton took one wicket each — 1-34 and 1-31, respectively, for Passagefort.

In reply, Paul Harrison (4-14-3) and Zamar Sinclair (12-7-3) then helped Waterford CC to bowl out Passagefort for 55 from 12.2 overs. Anthony Richards was the only batsman that provided some resistance with 21 (20).

Scores: Waterford CC (185-2 from 20 overs); Passagefort (55 all out from 12.2 overs)
