GSCL Inc. 12/12 … Organisers push back final two days

Guyana Chronicle article.

Georgetown, Guyana - Following the unavailability of the Everest Cricket Club (ECC) ground for this weekend, the Organising Committee within the Georgetown Softball Cricket League Inc. (GSCL) is forced to push back the playing of the quarterfinals, semifinals and final of their second 12/12 tournament.

The new dates for these matches are Saturday September 28 and Sunday September 29, with the quarterfinals being played on Saturday and the semifinals and final the following day, at the Camp Road-based ECC ground.

Already, the quarterfinalists are known following the first two days of action last weekend, where Regal XI and Trophy Stall (Group A), Speedboat and Recharge (Group B), Wolf Warriors and Invaders (Group C) and defending champions Memorex and Universal DVD Titans of Group D advanced.

In Saturday’s quarterfinals encounter, Wolf Warriors and Universal DVD Titans will meet in the first match, followed by the Memorex versus Invaders matchup, which precedes the Regal XI versus Recharge encounter, before Trophy Stall and Speedboat culminate the day’s events.

For the semifinals, the winner of match number one will oppose the winner of match number four in one encounter while the winners of the second and third quarterfinal matches will collide in the other semifinal matchup.

As was evident when the GSCL Inc. ran off the first 12/12 tournament in May, which saw Memorex defeat Regal XI to take home the top prize of $600 000 and trophy, following the feats of then Most Valuable Player (MVP) Shimron Hetmyer, the final for the second tournament will be broadcast live via NCN Radio.

Meanwhile, young Sanjay Hardyal celebrated his 8th birthday last Sunday and the members of Regal XI, who were cheered on by Hardyal when they disposed of both Farm XI and Trophy Stall, saw it fit to present Hardyal, the nephew of their team’s sponsor, with a trophy and a replica team jersey.
