Violence caused a club match in the Bahamas to be cancelled after rocks were thrown by the members of one side into an area of the pavilion occupied by their opponents.

The incident occurred in a game between St. Agnes and Castrol Commonwealth when the Bahama Journal reported that “players from Castrol Commonwealth were forced to run for cover as the unwarranted attack resulted in rocks being thrown and one player and a fan being injured. The players from St. Agnes who initiated the violence hurled stones on the porch of the shaded area where players, fans and officials were seated. Fortunately no further injuries were sustained.”

At the time of the attack Castrol Commonwealth were 104 for 1 in reply to St. Agnes’ 315.
