LEEWARDS HAS ITS MOMENTS, BUT BARBADOS WINS

Feb. 16, 2004 – Barbados won the 2004 Carib Cup Cricket Championship, demolishing Leeward Islands by an inning and 28 runs Saturday at the Addelita Cancryn Junior High School grounds.
Leeward Islands continued its second inning on Saturday with the overnight score of 76 for 2, with Willet on 20 and Joseph 24. They started cautiously and batted very well, scoring with strokes all over the field, but just before the luncheon interval Joseph got out for a well-made 50 runs and with Willet had a partnership of 108 runs. The score was then 135.
Tuckett joined Willet and they took the score to 162. Just after lunch, without adding to the score, Willet lost his wicket to a great catch by Mayers off the bowling of Hurley and he made 63.
The Leewards started losing quickly and tumbled to 172 for 6. Former West Indies bowler Collins made the break-through. In the end, Leeward Islands was all out for 223 runs, losing the game by an inning and 28 runs.
Scores: Barbados 432 runs; Leewards 161 and 223 runs
Man of the Match honors went to Shervin Campbell for Barbados and Tonito Willet of Leeward Islands.
Because the match had been scheduled for four days but lasted only three, a 40-overs match was played on Sunday and had a large crowd in attendance.
Leeward Islands won the toss, elected to bat first and racked up 286 runs. Tonito Willet made 102 runs, and the top scorer was Sylvester Joseph with 125 not out.
In reply Barbados got off to a very good start, scoring more than 8 runs per over, but fell short by 54 runs scoring 232. Top scorer for Barbados was D. Smith with 54 runs.
Most successful bowler for the Leewards was Dane Weston with 3 for 44; best bowler for Barbados was D. Smith, who got 3 wickets.
