Spinner Stephan Casey and batsman Peat Salmon combined well yesterday to help Central Titans gain first-inning honours on the opening day of the Jamaica Cricket Association Super League match against Eastern Tigers at Chedwin Park.

Entering today's second and final day of the match, the Titans are 156-6 in response to the Tigers' 144 all out.

Scores: Tigers 144 (47 overs); Titans 156-6 (43 overs).

Casey claimed 6-34 from 19 overs to help dismiss the Tigers for a mediocre score.

Jevaughn Buchanan top-scored for the Tigers with 54, while Garth Garvey and Yannick Elliott added 35 and 25, respectively. No other batsman reached 15.

In the hosts' reply, Salmon, batting at number four, led the way with an unbeaten 59, while opener Oraine Williams chipped in with 29. The Tigers left-arm pacer Gavon Brown and spinner Patrick Harty and Ryan Francis captured two wickets a piece.

In the game at Noranda Bauxite, Southern Seals took control against home team Northern Panthers. The Seals are set to resume today on 139-6 in response to the Panthers' paltry first-innings score of 97.

Scores: Panthers 97 (47.5 overs); Seals 139-6 (40 overs)

Damani Sewell (35) and Andre Creary (27) were the two main contributors as the Panthers were swept away for fewer than 100 runs. Linton Buchanan took 5-46, while Oshane Walters (3-26) and Jason Dawes (2-14) added value support.

The Seals lost six wickets before the close, but were able to take a useful 42-run lead thanks to Sherdon Allen's 41 and Jamie Merchant's 34. Christopher Lamont has grabbed 4-45 for the Panthers.
