St Bess hunt third straight win in JCA Senior Cup

Jamaica Observer article.

Kingston, Jamaica - Zone A leaders St Elizabeth CA will be hunting their third win in as many outings when they host Trelawny CA at the Alpart Sports Club today in the Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA) two-day Senior Cup competition.

St Elizabeth shot to the top of the zone after beating St James CA by 81 runs last week, while Trelawny, who beat Hanover CA by nine wickets in a simultaneous fixture, are in second spot after a win and a loss in their two matches so far.

In Zone A's other encounter, St James and Westmoreland are set to battle at the Trelawny Multi-Purpose Stadium.

In Zone B, leaders GC Foster College travel to Chedwin Park to meet third-placed St Catherine CC in a highly anticipated clash.

In last weekend's matches GC Foster trounced Kingston & St Andrew Cricket Association by 281 runs, while St Catherine CC overpowered Clarendon CA by eight wickets.

In another Zone B encounter, the second-placed St Catherine CA, who were victorious over Manchester CA by five wickets in their last game, will match wits with Clarendon at Port Esquivel sports ground.

Also in Zone B, fifth-placed Manchester CA are set to entertain sixth-placed Kingston & St Andrew at the Manchester High playing field.

Over in Zone C, St Ann CA will visit Palmers Park to go up against joint front-runners St Mary CA, while a battle of the security forces will ensue when fourth-placed Police host third-placed Jamaica Defence Force at the Elletson Road playing field.

In the other Zone C clash, cellar team Portland CA face fifth-placed University of the West Indies at the GC Foster field.

Melbourne CC could stretch their advantage atop Zone D when they host St Thomas CA today, while second-placed Kingston CC will also be aiming for a win when they travel to Collie Smith Complex to meet last-placed Boys' Town CC.

In the other Zone D game, the neighbouring clubs Kensington CC and Lucas CC will lock horns at Up Park Camp.

Kensington are in third place, while Lucas lie fifth.

All games are scheduled to commence at 10:00 am.
