Naparima College won the opening Under-14 match of the PowerGen Secondary Schools Cricket League yesterday against crosstown rivals Presentation College San Fernando at Lewis Street San Fernando.

Presentation Under-16 team has defeated Naps on Monday, but the U-14 team took revenge with an easy win under cloudy skies. Batting first, Presentation found themselves in early problems as pacer Liam Mamchan sent back both openers with not many on the board.

Soon after off-spinner Romario King took over and snared four wickets to reduced Presentation to 52/6. The end of their innings seemed close, but Alex Singh lent bat to ball and hammered a quick fire 35 before he fell to spinner Kivan Maharaj. Presentation limped to 129 all out off 21.2 overs. King ended with 4/28, Mamchan 2/30 and Maharaj 2/18.

When Naparima responded openers King and Jonathan Ramnarace posted a half century stand to lead the way. Rain made an appearance and soon after Pres got back into the game through two wickets by left armer Jacen Agard.

The players were back on about half an hour after and when the rain came again in late afternoon to wash out play, Naps were handily placed at 115/3. King made 43 and skipper Vishwesh Pattanaik scored 23.
