Welcome-Goodman cracks second century, Moseley hits his first in Series 4 of Sagicor Super Cup

Barbados Cricket Association article.

Bridgetown, Barbados - Marlon Welcome-Goodman of BDFSP slammed his second century in three matches but in a losing cause by four wickets against Republic Bank St. Catherine, while fellow left-hander Shayne Moseley hit a maiden hundred in a five-wicket win for Carlton over CounterPoint Wanderers as wet conditions again significantly reduced play in Series 4 of the BCA Sagicor General Super Cup championship today.

Welcome-Goodman, who went to the crease at No. 6, struck an even hundred off 98 balls with six sixes and the same number of fours to lift BDFSP from dire straits at 38 for five in 14 overs to 180 all out off 41.2 overs after they were sent at Bayfield in a Zone 'B' match which was reduced to a 47-over-a-side.

So dominant was 19-year-old Welcome-Goodman that when he was eighth out, run out in bizarre circumstances as he eased out of his crease while celebrating his century, the score was 155 in the 37th over.

Pacer Ulric Batson was the leading wicket-taker with three for 24 off seven overs.

Guided by a solid, unbeaten 56 off 82 balls with two sixes and one four from Trinidad & Tobago player, Steven Katwaroo, who is a member of the Sagior West Indies High Performance Centre, St. Catherine triumphed with 4.1 overs to spare.

Omar Phillips, the former Sagicor Life UWI captain, who has also played at the highest level for West Indies, contributed 38 in his first match for St. Catherine.

Off-spinner Ackeem Clinkett picked up three for 30 off ten overs.

Welcome Goodman scored his first ever century (103) against Banks Wildey at Paragon in Series 2.

In the only other match in the same Zone today, Moseley, like Welcome-Goodman a member of the champion Barbados Under-19 team in last year's regional three-day tournament at home, also lashed an even century as Carlton recorded their second win to move to the top of the standings on 12 points from four matches.

Playing at Desmond Haynes Oval, opener Moseley hit six sixes and two fours off 130 balls as Carlton triumphed with 11 balls to spare in pursuit of 231.

Vonrick Nurse contributed 51.

There were also only two matches in Zone A as wet conditions caused by heavy rain for the second consecutive weekend, left a few teams yet to bowl a ball.

After falling for 122 in 48.4 overs of which Collis Worrell topscored with 38 and all-rounder Jamar Griffith contributed 28, Maple hit back to dismiss Pickwick for 92 in 40 overs.

Griffith, a left-arm spinner, was the main wrecker with four for 16.

In a clash of Division 1 teams, MTW, lifted by a chancy 78 off 83 balls with four boundaries and two sixes by Raymond Kellman, scored 165 all out in 41.2 overs after the match had been reduced to a 43-over-a-side.

Yorkshire fell for 105 in 39 overs.

Due to very wet conditions mainly in the City, Guardian General Barbados Youth, Police and Super Centre Spartan are all yet to have a single ball sent down.
