IN a display of dominance, the LIME Cricket Team swept the 2010 business house cicket awards with a huge haul of championship trophies including the top prize for the 20/20 competition which was sponsored by arch rivals Digicel.

At the awards banquet held Saturday at the Knutsford Court Hotel in Kingston, the LIME Team walked away with more than 15 awards earned by both the team and individual players.

LIME, who won three of the four major championship trophies for the 2010 Season, collected the Digicel Trophy for the 20/20 competition, the BHCB Trophy for the 35 Overs Knock Out competition and the Best Dress Chicken Trophy for the 30 Overs Knock Out competition.

The LIME Team was also first runner-up in the Reggae Jammin' Foods 50 Overs Competition which was won by Jamaica Broilers.

LIME's victory in the Digicel 20/20 competition marked the fourth time in the last five years they were claiming that trophy. The LIME cricketers also reclaimed both the 35 Overs and 30 Overs trophies which they had not held since 2007 and 2006, respectively.

In addition to the numerous team awards, LIME's bowlers and batsmen also made an excellent showing. Omar Allison won the Cosmo Grant Performance Trophy for scoring the most runs of the season, and took two additional awards -- a trophy for the highest batting average in the 35 Overs competition and a Century Award for scoring 217 runs in LIME's match against National Housing Trust.

Another stand-out was LIME's Horace Miller, who won the Abe Alexander Memorial Trophy for highest score in the 30 Overs Competition, the Sellie Mitchell Trophy for the highest score in the 35 Overs Competition and who was Man of the Match for the finals of the 35 Overs competition.

LIME's haul didn't end there as Fitzroy Peterkin won the Bill Stewart Memorial Trophy for Best Bowling in the 30 Overs Competition and Damion Jacobs was Man of the Match in the Digicel 20/20 Competition.

In addition, Ryan Francis got a Century Award for scoring 100 in LIME's match against Sagicor and a prize for Sterling Bowling Performance in the 35 Overs Competition.
