Nevis and St. Maarten hold out to tame draw
Sports Page — The Nevis under19 team drew their encounter with their counterparts from St.Maarten at the ET Willet Park on Sunday.
The St.Maarten coach was certainly far from being amused when coach for the Nevis team, Gerard TRINI Charles, opted to allow his young soldiers to bat out the final half hour of the game.
Marcus Dubbery excited the crowd with his scintillating stroke play, accompanied by a more sedate Saeed Williams.
When the match was eventually called off, both teams had earned an honourable draw.
