Leewards Pulls Off Miracle Win

Sports Page—Friday 26th July 2013–Set an improbable victory target of 301, the Leeward Islands batted bravely into the final day at Conaree. The inform Ross Powell and Saeed Williams demonstrated guts and fight early on and Avier Christain followed suit with an equally gutsy performance.

However, the Leewards team was staring defeat in the face but Jeremiah Louis and Tristan Powell teamed up in an amazing partnership of 146 runs for the 9th wicket, leaving the Bajans stunned and nonplussed as they helped their team to a 1 wicket victory
