Boscobel Warriors retained the Costly Construction-sponsored St Mary Boscobel Premier League T20 title when they defeated Mango Valley by four wickets in the grand final last Sunday at Boscobel Oval.

In the third-place play-off Port Maria Turbos stopped Days Mountain Strikers by 39 runs.

The feature match saw Mango Valley winning the toss and electing to bat. They reached 134 for eight in their allotted 20 overs. Top batsmen were Durrant Whyte with 56 and Sheldon Pryce with 35, against Herman Henry with three for 23. Whyte was in good form, cutting and pulling with relish while receiving good support from Pryce after Mango Valley had been rocked by the loss of three early wickets.

In their turn at the crease Boscobel romped to 136 for six, thanks to Herman Henry who had a good all-round game in top scoring with 42, and Eugene Hudson, 27. Brian Robinson with four for 40 was the pick of the Mango Valley bowlers.

In the third-place encounter which was reduced to a T10 affair, Port Maria won the toss and made 144 for four in their 10 overs. Devoy Smith, 54, and Ronville Brown, 46, were the principal scorers, while Renar Ross bagged one for 15. Days Mountain reached 105 for three in their 10 overs, with Damion Bryce (59) and Andre Bryce (26) the mainstay of the innings. Lascelles Davis grabbed two for 14.

Tezwayne Creary of Port Maria was adjudged the Most Valuable Player, Damion Bryce the Top Scorer, while Jason Golden and Herman Henry shared the Top Wicket-taker award.

Courtney Francis, chief executive officer of the Jamaica Cricket Association, lauded the organisers of the event — the Boscobel Sports Club — for a well-run event, noting that the sport of cricket is definitely on the rise in the parish of St Mary.
