40-Overs Tournament Yields Big-4
Fearsome Foursome Clash This Weekend

The Eastern American Cricket Association’s 40-Overs competition has arrived at the championship crossroads of its 2008 season, which often attracts far greater interest than that surrounding the ultimate 40-Overs champions.

Last week Richmond Hill Cricket Club ended the EACA’s 40-Overs season atop the championship pile with 52 points, defeating Bayshore Tigers by seven wickets. Richmond Hill has traveled the road unbeaten for the season, thus far. The club’s championship year has been a well-deserved one so far, as the team has always been a threat to the top tier teams of the EACA over the past few years.

In second place was Everest/ACS Cricket Club with 50 points resulting from a 10-1 season, and followed by East Bank Cricket Club (8-2), 42 points, and Atlantis Cricket Club – NY, 37 points from a 7-3 season.

The traditional Big-4 competition gets underway this Sunday, August 10 with the schedule draw showing the association’s fearsome four locking horns in the semi-final round this weekend. First-place Richmond Hill plays fourth-place Atlantis at Baisley Pond Park, while second-place Everest/ACS will come up against third-place East Bank at Lido Beach. Both matches have a 12:00 Noon start.

Next weekend the two emerging teams will meet in the Big-4 finals, before the EACA starts the 2008 Twenty20 Division A and B tournament.
