Playing for Police, the left-handed Taylor blasted an unbeaten 124 to lead his team to a 45-run victory over Westerns on Saturday. His knock and 24 each from his brother Gregory Taylor Jnr and R. Thomas ensured Police amassed 204 for four after a late start necessitated a reduction in the overs to 15. For Westerns, Gregory Irving and Cliff Atkinson picked up two wickets each.
Westerns were spirited in their reply, reaching 159 for six when their 15 overs expired. Atkinson and Irving where once again to the fore, hitting 73 and 46 respectively while R. Charles claimed three wickets for nine runs.
On Sunday, St. Alban’s posted a challenging 166 for six in their 20 overs but were helpless in the face of a brutal assault by Pacesetters’ openers who carried their team to a 10-wicket victory in 15.5 overs. Andre Dos Ramos 64, Brent Fullerton 36 and R. Coakley 34 were the main contributors for St. Alban’s against Mark Levi’s two for 41. Ryan Tapping and Renford Davson then slammed 87 and 71 respectively in an unbroken opening stand of 167 to lead their team to an easy win.
The competition continues next weekend with two more matches at the same venue.
