Two batsmen ESA Pickwick's George Harris and Cable & Wireless BET's Adrian Brathwaite completed their second centuries of the season, but yesterday's play was also highlighted by dramatic confrontation at Bayfield.
At Bayfield (Carlton 182, St. Catherine 211-5): St. Catherine lifted by an unbeaten 76 by Dale Mason gained first innings over United Carlton as controversy plagued the second day.
The day's play ended with a mid-pitch confrontation involving Mason, his partner Terry Watson, bowler Ryan Clarke, and wicket-keeper Jason King.
The incident, which occurred around 6:20 p.m., was triggered when Clarke ran past the stumps but did not release the ball while Mason was facing.
This seemed to have infuriated Mason who advanced down the pitch waving his bat.
King then grabbed a stump and ran towards Mason and Clarke, but nonstriker Watson was quick to intervene and defuse a potentially ugly scene.
Two overs before Watson was on the receiving end of a barrage of short bowling from Calitos Lopez, who was given an official warning for intimidatory bowling.
Immediately umpire Vincent Bullen offered light and play was halted.
After the day the players shook hands in the pavilion to reconcile.
The unfortunate scene ended a good day for St. Catherine who lead by 21 runs on first innings.
At Kensington Oval (Wanderers 152, Pickwick 277-2): Harris marched to his second century of the season in lifting joint leaders ESA Field Pickwick into a strong position against Cockspur Wanderers.
Harris, who batted through the day to finish 136 not out, received good support from Rondell Yearwood. Yearwood made 78 in a second wicket partnership of 142.
Towards the end of the day, Ryan Hinds chipped in with a breezy unbeaten 39 against a very modest attack in which captain Ian Bradshaw was the only bowler to take a wicket.
At Beckles Road (C&W BET 304-7, YMPC 87-3): Adrian Brathwaite completed his second century in successive matches as Cable & Wireless BET continued the recovery act.
Brathwaite, who was 88 overnight, made 125, while Dane Coppin moved from 40 to 78 not out when BET declared at the tea interval.
YMPC lost three wickets in the post-tea session.
At Blenheim (BCL 104 & 74-5, Empire 219): ICB Empire seem headed for victory over BCL.
The home team ended the day still 41 runs behind with five wickets in hand.
In Empire's first innings, Shawn Graham made 44 while captain Roland Holder got 27 before the spin combination of Theo Chandler and Jarvis Forde checked the scoring rate.
Faced with a deficit of 115 runs, BCL started badly losing Rommel Brathwaite for nought. But captain Chandler batted responsibly to put up some resistance.
At Queen's Park (Schools South 177, Spartan 20-1): A seven-wicket haul by left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn helped Big B Spartan dismiss CHIC Schools South on a good batting pitch yesterday.
Benn took the first five wickets and finished with seven for 32 from 19.3 overs.
None of the other five bowlers used by Spartan looked threatening though Gregory Robinson took three for 21.
Wicket keeper/batsman Damian Maynard batted confidently to topscore with a polished 41.
At the Brewery (Schools North 138, Banks 77-2): A five-wicket haul by Banks leg-spinner Robert Stuart and an electrifying 41 by teammate Richard Carter stole the spotlight on the first day of the match against CHIC Schools North.
Jason Crawford was the top scorer for the schoolboys with a disciplined 48.
After Banks lost Mike Maynard lbw to the first ball, Carter responded by striking the students to all parts of the field in scoring 41 off 25 balls in 36 minutes in a partnership of 72 with Dale Brathwaite who is unbeaten on 27.
