Volcanoes hold advantage against Scorpions

The Windward Islands Volcanoes held the advantage at stumps on day one of their opening regional 4-day encounter against the Jamaica Scorpions at Sabina Park. The Windwards closed on 157-2, just 2 runs behind Jamaica's first innings total.

The Windwards reply has been built on an unbeaten 66 from Johann Jeremiah and 30 not out from Sunil Ambris. 
Kimani Melius was dismissed for 31 and Jeremy Solozano 26.

Earlier, the Scorpions were bundled out for 159 off 41 overs. With the Jamaicans struggling at 45-5 at one stage, Romaine Morris and Abhijai Mansingh added 53 for the 6th wicket to help resurrect the innings.

Morris ended up top scoring with 35, while Mansingh made 16. Peat Salmon was the second best scorer with 26.

Ryan John was the chief destroyer for the Volcanoes with 5-43 along with support from Shamar Springer 3-53.

Meanwhile, day one between Barbados Pride and Combined Campuses and Colleges had to be abandoned due to a poor outfield.

The match was initially delayed due to a wet outfield after overnight rain from a weather system which has been affecting the island since the start of the week, before umpires decided no play was possible.

Elsewhere, the first century of the season from Jason Mohammed and a half century from Tion Webster, piloted the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force to 215-4 after electing to bat against Guyana Harpy Eagles at the Conaree Sports Complex in the twin island republic.

Mohammed ended the day on 100 not out, while Webster fell on what turned out to be the final delivery of the day for an even 50.

In other matches, the West Indies Academy were 60-2 at stumps on day one of their contest after dismissing Leeward Islands Hurricanes for 137 at Warner Park in St Kitts.

After being inserted the Leewards were always up against it and didn't offer much resistance until Jeremiah Louis made a 123-ball 45 batting at number 8.

Terrence Ward added 28 and Jahmar Hamilton 22. Mbeki Joseph who is on 30 and Ackeem Auguste who is with him on 15, then steered the academy team to 60-2 at the close.

Rohshawn Worrell 13 and Kadeem Alleyne 2, are the batsmen dismissed.
