Weymouth Wales will attempt to make a clean sweep of Group 1 of the Capelli Cup Championship stage when they take on the University of the West Indies (UWI) Blackbirds tonight at the Wildey Turf.

Meanwhile, Barbados Defence Force Sports Programme (BDFSP) and Scotty’s Car Rentals St Andrew Lions will contest what can be considered a dead rubber after both teams’ progression to the last eight was confirmed by Lions’ 4-3 victory over Silver Sands, who also lost 7-0 to the BDFSP.

UWI could have confirmed their status in the quarter-finals last week with a win over the Dames.

They were leading the Dames well in the second half, courtesy of Niall Reid-Stephen’s penalty, but a lapse in concentration at the back allowed Kyle Gibson to equalise late on for Dames. (NM)
