Summer Playoffs - Finals
Division -1 DreamTeamCC vs. Lions CC
It was sweet revenge for Lions CC when they comprehensively beat and dethroned the reigning last year's champions DreamTeam CC on Sunday August 24, 2014 at the Jim Beech Recreation Park in Ocoee. In extremely hot and humid conditions and a large and appreciative crowd, Lions CC won the toss and they chose to bat first, amassing a respectable total of 163 for 9 in their allotted 25 overs. Steady and sensible batting and good running between the wickets enabled them to amass this total despite excellent bowling and fielding by the DreamTeam CC players.
In reply, DreamTeam never looked comfortable or and was never in the run chase especially after they lost their opener in the first over with the scoreboard reading zero for 1. Persistently accurate bowling and excellent fielding by Lions CC fielders severely restricted DreamTeam CC from getting to the required run rate and coupled with steady fall of wickets, DreamTeam CC was bowled out for 128 all out in 25 overs, giving Lions CC the Championship trophy.
Division -2 Caribbean vs. Royal Challengers
In the Minor league that was also played at Jim Beech Recreation Center on Sunday, Royal Challengers CC soundly beat Caribbean CC, it was virtually a no contest because Caribbean CC never looked in control of the match, or passing a respectable total. They struggled throughout their innings to reach a mediocre total of 121 runs.
In reply, excellent batting by Royal Challengers CC. Deodat Hereman (Captain) steered his team to a comfortable win over Caribbean CC with a score of 124 runs.
Looking forward to 2014 Fall Competition.
