Jamaica Gleaner article.

Kingston, Jamaica - St Elizabeth teams All Century and Deigo's Eleven have now joined Boscobel and the Area 2 Police Sports Club of St Mary in advancing to the final round of eight of the Nestlé Supligen Jamaica Cricket Association Power Play 10/10 Championship, following last weekend's fixtures at the Manley Horne Sports Oval in St Elizabeth.

In Sunday's final between All Century and Deigo's Eleven, national Under-19 representative Fabian Allen top-scored with 45 in All Century's reply of 82 for two off 7.3 overs to Deigo's Eleven's 78 for eight off their allotted 10 overs. Ivan Powell struck 19 for the runners-up while Romain Roy was laserlike with four wickets for seven runs for All Century.

It proved a rewarding weekend for Allen as, on Saturday, he steered All Century to 100 for five off their 10 overs against Vineyard, with a good innings of 43 supported by Ferron Findlay with 20. Vineyard, in reply, managed only 68 for seven off their allotted overs, with Hylton Ricketts top-scoring on 20. Allen took two for 19 as his team advanced to the following day's semi-final.

Come Sunday morning, Allen did not let up, smashing 57 in All Century's robust knock of 115 for five off their 10 overs against rivals Uprising. Allen took three for six while Tavar Spencer bagged two for four and Conroy Miller two for seven to skittle out Uprising for 55 off their 10 overs.

En route to the final, Deigo's Eleven first gained a bye and then defeated Quick Step by 5 wickets. Scores: Deigo's Eleven 105 for five off 10 overs (Roger Roye 49, Paul Bromfield 26); Quick Step 60 all out in 9.2 overs (Tedroy Parchment 16, Paul Bromfield 3 for 18, Tajay Thompson two wickets without conceding a run, Roger Roye two for 4)

The third-place play-off between Uprising and Quick Step was won by Uprising. Scores: Uprising 90 for six off 10 overs (Orane Nembhard 28 / Jarrett Jones one for two); Quick Step 82 for six off 10 overs (Jarrett Jones 35, Nedroy Green 24; Troy Powell two for nine, Shian Simpson two for 26).
