HALF-CENTURIES by the Reifer family – 51 by all-rounder Raymon and 53 by Floyd – took Sagicor UWI to first innings lead over ESA Field Pickwick.After polishing off the visitors for a paltry 113, UWI responded with 290 as the match ended in a tame draw.Ramon went to the wicket with his team in full control and in sight of first innings when the score was 100 for three.He played freely and struck five fours in reaching his half century. After reaching his milestone, he was soon back in the pavilion with the score on 223, when he was taken by Antonio Thomas in slips off off-spinner Rommel Small. Floyd enjoyed himself in bashing the ball to the boundary and was very severe on leg spinner Ryan Layne by despatching him over mid-wicket a number of times. His 53 contained three sixes and four fours before being leg before to Corey Yearwood.Miles Bascombe with 29 and Nekoli Parris 63 had earlier featured in a second-wicket partnership of 94 after wicketkeeper Simon Naitram was bowled by fast bowler Antonio Thomas for one with the score on six. Parris struck nine fours in his stay at the wicket.UWI were motoring along, scoring at will, but leg-spinner Ryan Layne had other ideas and with the score on 100, he broke the partnership by removing both batsmen.
