Opener Garth Garvey's blazing hundred powered Kingston CC to an innings and 35 runs victory against visitors Kingston and St Andrew CA yesterday in the Jamaica Cricket Association two-day Senior Cup match at Sabina Park.

Hapless KSACA were bowled out twice on the opening day — for 117 and 83 — and failed to force Kingston to bat a second time.

In between those innings, Kingston quickly compiled 235-9 declared thanks to Garvey's 164.

Scores: Kingston and St Andrew 117 (33.4 overs) & 83-9 (21.3 overs); Kingston 235-9 decl (33.2 overs).

Earlier, the hosts won the toss and sent Kingston and St Andrew to bat first.

They were 74-3 at one point before collapsing to 117 all out.

Opener Javian McFarlane made 23, while Albert Rose added 19.

Christopher Green took 4-38, while fellow spinners Paul Harrison and Jevaughn Buchanan claimed two wickets each.

In Kingston's innings, Garvey was unbothered by wickets falling around him to smash 14 sixes and as many fours, meaning 140 runs came in boundaries.

Lionel Morant was the next best scorer with 29, while Jamaica Scorpions batsman Brandon King was dismissed for 13.

KSACA spinner Davian Allen and left-arm pacer Janoi Beckford captured 3-48 and 3-54, respectively.

Batting a second time, KSACA were setback with McFarlane unable to bat due to illness.

Still, it was a weak effort from them. Opener Damion Foster provided most resistance, top-scoring with a 48-ball 50. He was supported by Damion Wolliston (26).

Fabian Forbes, Harrison and Buchanan grabbed three wickets each for Kingston.
