Defending Champion Lucas Crashes out of  Kingston Wharves Under 15 Cricket

Latest Jamaica News, Kingston (McKoy’s News) – Defending champion in the Kingston Wharves Under 15 Cricket Competition – Lucas, crashed out of contention for a place in the quarter-final when rain prevented any play on Friday in a must-win match against Kensington Cricket Club.  Both teams turned up at Nelson Oval in Rolling Town where the winner of the clash would take the second spot in Zone A in the fifth and final round of matches.  Lucas and Kensington posted two wins and a loss before Friday’s scheduled matchup which never materialized.  Kensington was given the nod by virtue of a better run rate.

The other match in Zone A between Portland and St. Thomas at Folly Oval was also aimed out.  A result in that match would have been for academic purpose only as they lost their three matches in the preliminary round and had no chance of moving forward in the competition.

Zone B top of the table action between St. Mary and St. Ann went to St. Mary by 77 runs after batting first and making 165 for 6 in 40 overs with Jordan Pinnock 61 and Ackeem Lewis 31 getting among the runs.  Roshaun Lynch 3-31 in 8 overs was the pick of the bowlers.

Kingston CC Ahead in Kingston Wharves U15 Cricket

St. Ann, on the other hand, was skittled out for 88 with Orane Coombs 48 top scoring.  The bulk of the wickets went to Aan Ennis 5-19 in 6.2 overs and Jordan Pinnock 2-40 in 8 overs.

The result did not impact the teams’ chances to get into the quarter-final as they both went through by virtue of their superior results in the other matches.  St. Mary ended the preliminary round with three wins and St. Ann with two.

The other match in the zone saw St. James defeating Hanover by 5 wickets to record its first win but will take no further part in the competition.

Rain also impacted the Zone C match between Melbourne and Kingston & St. Andrew Cricket Association (KSACA) as there was no action on the field.  KSACA was the worse off as that meant that Melbourne will be in the quarter-final after benefitting from the point gained whereas KSACA needed the win to go through the quarter-final.

The other zone match went to St. St. Catherine CC over Portmore.  St. Catherine CC got its first win while Portmore lost all its matches and will take no further part in the competition.

St. Elizabeth won its Zone D match-up with Westmoreland by 10 wickets and will move into the quarter-final.  Westmoreland was skittled out for 39 while St. Elizabeth made 41 without loss.

The other match saw Clarendon defeating St. Catherine Cricket Association by 74 runs to record it first win.  Both teams ended their run in the competition with one win each.

The quarter-final matches will be played on Tuesday with Kingston CC taking on Melbourne, St. Mary battling St. Elizabeth, Boys Town facing Kensington and Manchester playing against St. Ann.

Kingston CC is the only team to win all four preliminary round matches while Melbourne is the only team with a century maker in Kevaundre Virgo.  Manchester won in 2017 while St. Elizabeth was the 2016 winner.  St. Mary and St. Ann have never won the competition while Kensington and Boys Town are in their second year in the competition and are looking for their first overall win of the Kingston Wharves Under 15 Cricket Competition.
