OFF-SPINNER Ryan Austin had yet another productive day in the LIME Division One championship with a seven-wicket haul to hand defending champions Sagicor UWI first innings points over Carlton.After UWI rallied to 278 all out with coach/player Floyd Reifer completing another century at this level, Austin bagged seven for 66 as Carlton folded for 219.But UWI struggled to 31 for four in their second innings for an overall lead of 90 runs. Earlier, Reifer, the former Barbados and West Indies batsman, blasted 12 fours and five sixes on his way to 111.Carlton made a spirited reply in their first innings losing their first wicket with the score on 86. They seemed set to easily overtake the UWI score but this soon changed with the introduction of Austin, who spun his way through the Carlton batting.However, Carlton’s pacers Dawayne Sealy and Ryan Clarke struck back in the second innings taking two wickets each to leave the match delicately poised.
