Wycliff Atkinson, Jagnauth Jagroo, and Donovan Matthews scored centuries while Mark Levy registered his second five-wicket haul as the Bahamas Cricket Association (BCA) 40-over league continued last weekend at the Haynes Oval on Bay Street. Atkinson’s 113 could not prevent Western going down by seven wickets to Pacesetters, for whom Matthews made 111 and Levy claimed five for 32. Meanwhile Jagroo’s 101, his second ton of the competition, led St. Agnes to a massive 221-run win over St. George.

On Sunday, Jagroo led the way in St. Agnes’ 321 for seven in 35 overs. He was supported by his brother Bhumeshwar Jagroo, who scored an unbeaten 57; Derron Cadogan who made 50; and John Dolphin who contributed 43. Orlando Stewart was the most successful bowler for St. George with three for 70, while Mario Ford claimed two for 47. St. George could only muster 100 in 20.4 overs when they replied. Ford hit 31 while Turan Brown claimed four for six, and Dolphin four for 16.
Saturday’s game saw Western falling for 202 in 30.1 overs despite Atkinson’s innings. His only support came from O. Clarke who made 31 as Levy ran through the middle order after Lee Melville, who claimed two for 37, struck twice in the opening over. In reply, Pacesetters cruised to 204 for three in 22 overs with Matthews leading the way, while Renford Davson and Jonathon Barry supported with 34 and 31 not out respectively.
The weekend’s results mean Pacesetters is now the only unbeaten team in the league which continues on April 26 after a break for a two-day game over the Easter weekend. The two-day came will see players using a red ball and white clothing, and play starting at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday.
