Trinidad and Tobago 216 for 5 (Mohammed 63, Pooran 33*, Lewis 31) beat Windward Islands 202 (Fletcher 58, Sebastien 52, Smith 39, Cariah 5-44) by 14 runs
A collapse - six wickets for 21 runs - by Windward Islands in their chase of 217, gave Trinidad and Tobago a 16-run victory in St Vincent.
Windwards top order had led them to a comfortable 181 for 3, with No. 3 Andre Fletcher and Liam Sebastien scoring half-centuries. But legspinner Yannik Cariah ripped through the middle order, and the final six batsmen scored 16 runs together, with three batsmen dismissed for 0, to be bowled out for 202 in the final over. Cariah finished with 5 for 44, his best performance in his three-match List A career.
T&T's innings revolved around a solid top-order performance, led by an unbeaten half-century from Jason Mohammed. Besides Justin Guillen, who was dismissed for 2, all other batsmen scored atleast 20. Spinners Sebastien and Shane Shillingford took two wickets each.
Jamaica 158 for 6 (McCarthy 45, Lambert 34) beat Combined Campuses and Colleges 157 (Reifer 32, Miller 3-27) by four wickets
A balanced and collective effort by Jamaica helped them clinch the contest against Combined Campuses and Colleges by four wickets at Sabina Park, and lead the points table.
Having being asked to field, Jamaica kept chipping away at their opponents, as none of the batsmen could anchor the innings. Floyd Reifer and the captain Kyle Corbin got starts, but departed after scoring 32 and 24 respectively. Spinner Nikita Miller was the chief wicket-taker, with three wickets.
The home side two wickets early, with opener Jermaine Blackwood and No. 3 Nkrumah Bonner dismissed for a duck. However, Andre McCarthy (45), the captain Tamar Lambert (34) and David Bernard (28) helped them reach the target in the 46th over.
