NY Mayor's Cup
New York Region Wins Eastern Conference Tournament
After three days of keen competition and intriguing cricket in Washington, DC the defending champions New York Region emerged victorious.
Lead by Captain Steve Massiah the New Yorkers clinically demolished arch rivals Atlantic Region on Sunday at Chillum Park to take the trophy.
After a lack luster performance on Friday against South East when New York’s batting folded for 119 all out in 31 over and on Saturday morning when their bowling was taken to task by the Directors Eleven (243 all out in 50 overs - Andy Muhammed 112); the champions responded with five hours of text book cricket that left the Atlantic Region, South East Region and Director Eleven awe struck and defeated.
Buoyed by a courageous 123 not out by in form Glen Hall and 88 not out by skipper Steve Massiah New York reached 244 for one wicket in 39.2 overs easily rolling over the Directors’ Eleven.
Needing to beat convincingly Atlantic Region to on Sunday to qualify for the 2009 finals to be held later this summer in Huston, Texas New York Region responded with another emphatic win. First dismissing Atlantic region for 82 in 32 overs (Kevin Darlington 7-1-15-3) then responding with 84 in 9.3 overs, Evans finished not out on 22 and Massiah unbeaten on 38; by 1:30 pm on Sunday the game was over.
New York, Atlantic and South East each ended the tournament on 4 points. New York was adjudged the winner on run rate while South East came in second place.
