PAPINE High secured a slim first-innings advantage against Pembroke Hall at the end of the rain-interrupted day one of the low scoring ISSA/First Global 'A' League final at Melbourne Cricket Club.

Scores: Pembroke Hall 72 all out (27.3 overs) and 7-2; Papine 84 all out (37.4 overs).

Batting first, Pembroke Hall were bundled out for 72 as wrist-spinner Papine's Roje Barrett snatched 8-18 off seven overs and three balls. Craig Gordon and Travette Williams took a wicket each.

Pembroke Hall's opener Courtney Dowdie made 13, while Patrick Dixon and Clayon Saunders chipped in with 15 and 14, respectively.

Papine's No 7 batsman Ricardo Jackson made a crucial 27 to haul his team to 84 all out against the off-spin of Dixon's 4-25. Kimano Dawkins grabbed 2-25.

Batting a second time, Pembroke Hall stumbled to 7-2 when play was called off.
