Republic Bank St Catherine had their record tarnished by inspired Seven Seas Police, who prevailed by seven runs in a closely-fought fourth-round Sagicor General Twenty20 cricket match yesterday. After rallying to 126 for seven with Richard Greaves (32) and captain Roger Williams the main scorers, the home team showed their fighting qualities in holding their opponents to 119 for eight to register a third win in four matches and move to the top of the points table. Burly opener Dayne Maynard threatened to spoil Police’s parade with a swashbuckling 51-ball knock but his dismissal off the first ball of the 17th over for 58 (one four, four sixes) signalled a shift of momentum. The penultimate over by veteran off-spinner Derick Boyce (2-21) proved to be pivotal as Stefan Gooding and Ulric Batson were both bowled for the addition of just five runs. Pacer Rico Webb, who was introduced for the 18th over, sealed the win for Police by restricting the scoring to six runs before dismissing Michael Holder off the last ball.
