SOCIAL Development Commission (SDC) Twenty20 all-island champions Gayle CC suffered defeat at the hands of Port Maria as action continued in the St Mary Boscobel Premier League (BPL) last weekend.

In another game, defending champions Boscobel, led by a scintillating century from St Mary's new batting standout Orlando Lyons, thrashed Mango Valley by 91 runs.

In the opening encounter at Boscobel Oval in the competition sponsored by Costley Construction and Chem Quip, Lyons blasted 114 off 45 balls, inclusive of 12 fours and 10 sixes as Boscobel rattled up 205 for 3 in a match reduced to 13 overs per side. He was ably assisted by Herman Henry (58) as the pair put the Mango Valley bowlers to the sword.

Lyons, who cracked 74 in the finals of the Jamaica Cricket Association All-Island Limited Overs final at Chedwin Park earlier this year, and is considered one of the brightest batting propsects in the parish, was in imperious form for Boscobel. He thrashed the bowlers to all parts of the ground in an awesome display of power hitting.

His innings drew gasps across the ground as he brought up a well-deserved century in dramatic fashion.

In their turn at the crease, Mango Valley were bowled out for 114 off 12.2 overs with Rolando Staple top-scoring with 41 off 15 balls. Ronald Gooden (2-9), Tajay Edwards (2-20) and Atoy Newell (2-20) were the main wicket-takers.

In the feature encounter, the Wray and Nephew/SDC champions posted 150 for 7 with Jamaica Under-17 representative Oshaun Ennis leading the way with a well-played 51. Brian Robinson (19) and Sanjay Hudson (19) provided support, while Gihon Murdock (2-15) and Darren Royal (2-15) were the leading bowlers for Port Maria.
Port Maria answered with 154 for 6 in 18 overs, thanks to Ronville Brown (66) and Teswayne Creary (37). Sheldon Pryce took 2-13 and Ennis claimed 2-37.

Action continues tomorrow with Mango Valley facing Day's Mountain Strikers at Boscobel Oval starting at 9:30 am, while Boscobel Warriors and Jack's River Razors meet in the feature encounter at the venue beginning at 1:30pm.
