Wanderers and Empire completed victories on a rain-affected last day of the first-round matches in the Barbados Cricket Association’s Elite Division yesterday.

While the two matches in St Michael were badly affected, the weather was brighter in St Philip, where Wanderers defeated Crane Resort St Catherine at Bayfield and Empire won from Gladiola at Rices.

AT BAYFIELD: Wanderers completed a resounding 178-run victory over St Catherine.
