Champions Go Atop: Eastern America Cricket Association Division I
On a day when rain threatened to totally prevent play, the skies held back long enough to allow a 30 overs encounter between table topper Everest/ACS and defending champions Liberty Sports Club. Batting first E/ACS posted an imposing 180 for 8. With rain clouds drifting in with the Lido Beach waves LSC’s batting composed an organized chase to bring home a two wicket victory right before the skies broke open with drenching rain.
Following some dedicated work from the E/ACS players to get the pitch ready for play, LSC won the toss and elected to bowl first. Contrary to what the conditions indicated the Lido Beach pitch seemed unaffected by the early morning shower and was favorable for batting.
