Carter, Layne lift Alleyne Alumni into quarter-finals of Foundation Joel Garner T20 tourney
Barbados Cricket Association article.
Bridgetown, Barbados - Jonathan Carter, the exciting Barbados batting all-rounder and former national player Ryan "Shines" Layne produced telling performances as Alleyne Alumni beat Alexandra Old Scholars by 50 runs to move into the quarter-finals of the sixth annual Christ Church Foundation School Joel Garner Twenty20 tapeball tournament at Dover on Friday night.
The outcome in what was a virtual 'knockout' gave Alleyne the runners-up place on six points in the Lee Harford Skeete/Lewiston Wellington Zone 'A' behind convincing winners Combermere Old Scholars, who gained the maximum nine points.
Later, title holders Foundation 'A' Old Scholars defeated Harrison College Old Scholars by 24 runs to top the Lewin/Gilpin Jones Brothers Zone 'B' with nine points - three more than the other quarter-finalists Foundation School.
Carter, one of the batting heroes for new champions Barbados in the recent regional NAGICO Super50 tournament in Trinidad & Tobago, showed his versatility in what was his first match of this year's championship.
Bowling right-arm medium-pacer, he took four for 21 off four overs as Alexandra, chasing 135 to win in a match reduced to an 18-over-a-side, collapsed dramatically. They lost their last seven wickets for just eight runs in 3.5 overs, to be all out for 84 in 16.1 overs.
All of Carter's wickets were grabbed in a second spell of two overs in which he conceded six runs from the northern end (he took two in the third and two in the fourth) after sending down his first two overs from the southern end.
Among Carter's victims was topscorer Kyle Mayers, who represented Combined Campuses & Colleges (CCC) in the NAGICO Super50 tournament. Driving through the line, left-hander Mayers was caught at mid-on by Jomoe Carrington for 22.
Skipper Brian Corbin was the only double-figure contributor with 20 after putting on 54 in seven overs with Mayers for the fourth wicket before Corbin's dismissal in the 13th over triggered the sensational collapse.
Seamer Andre Evelyn picked up three for 14 off 3.1 overs.
Alleyne, the 2011 and 2013 losing finalists, scored 134 for eight off 18 overs after winning the toss. Layne lashed 47 off 38 balls with three sixes and two fours at No. 5 before he was run out.
Carter and former Barbados one-day player Dwayne Yearwood each contributed 14 and Jabari Doughlin (12).
Right-arm fast-medium Mayers, who took the first two wickets including former Barbados batsman Randy Thomas, who was bowled for five, finished with three for 31 off four overs, while medium-pacer Kirk Brome took two for 13 off three overs.
Former Barbados captain and West Indies fast bowler Corey Collymore, now the assistant coach of CCC, was wicket-less in conceding 33 runs off four overs.
Layne and Carter shared the Baron's Smokehouse $100 Player-of-the-Match award.
Foundation 'A' Old Scholars scored 148 for four off 20 overs after they were sent in. Big-hitter Dwight Carter led the way with 33 not out including two sixes and one four, while skipper Michael Matthews made 20 and Barbados Under-19 team fast bowling-all-rounder Jofra Archer, 14 not out off six balls.
Harrison College Old Scholars responded with 124 for nine. Ian Bradshaw, the former Barbados captain and West Indies fast bowling all-rounder hit the topscore of 29.
Archer snatched three for eight off four overs and duly won the Baron's Smokehouse $100 Player-of-the-Match prize.
Pacer Rico Webb took two for 13 and off-spinner Lydell Applewhaite, two for 39 in his first match this season - both off four overs.
The tournament continues on Monday, February 24 at Briar Hall, with the 2011 champions Coleridge & Parry Old Scholars, who are leading the Irvine King/Hugh Barker Zone 'C' with six points opposing Police who are without a point.
