Solozano helps Ladies defeat South West

Thursday, April 11, 2013

Brenda Solozano had two good performances on Sunday for the San Rafael Ladies in the T&T Women’s Cricket Association Championship Division T20 competition, but only one of these performances earned her team a win. 


San Rafael defeated South West United by seven wickets in match one, but then narrowly lost to UWI by five runs.


Solozano, who top-scored with an unbeaten 22, was supported by Makeni Thomas (11 not out). 


This helped guide the team to a successful run chase of 74 with three and a half overs to spare against South West. Earlier, Khadijah Rahim was the chief destroyer, taking 4/13 to restrict South West to 73 all out in 15.2 overs. 


Reniece Boyce (3/6) added to the demise of the South West batting, while Landa Paradassie was left stranded on 15 not out.


In the second match, Solozano snatched 4/4 and made 19 not out. UWI batted first and made 88/8 off their 20 overs, behind Anastasia Herbert’s 20. 


Alysha Gomez took two wickets for one run to support Solozano’s spell. 


In reply, San Rafael could only reach 83/9 in their 20 overs due to Caneisha Isaac’s 3/7. 


Naasira Mohammed (2/8) and Chrysel James (2/11) bagged two wickets apiece.


This Sunday, matches will continue when Achievers tackles San Rafael at 10 am and UWI at 2 pm. 


Both matches will be played at the UWI ground.




Match one: South West Utd 73 (15.2 overs)(Landa Paradassie 15 n.o., Khadijah Rahim 4/13, Reniece Boyce 3/6) vs San Rafael Ladies 74/3 (16.3 overs) (Brenda Solozano 22 n.o., Makeni Thomas 11 n.o.) San Rafael won by 7 wickets.

Match two: UWI 88/8 (Anastasia Herbert 20, Crystal Hanslal 11, Brenda Solozano 4/4, Alysha Gomez 2/1) vs San Rafael Ladies 83/9 (Reniece Boyce 19, Brenda Solozano 19 n.o., Caneisha Isaac 3/7, Naasira Mohammed 2/8, Chrysel James 2/11) UWI won by 5 runs.
