LAUDERHILL, Florida – Last Sunday, Southshore pulled off one of the biggest upsets in the South Florida Cricket Alliance T20 tournament by defeating five-time champion and tournament favorite, Lauderhill Jammers at Lauderhill Sports Park.

Jammers batting first after winning the toss, made 172 for 5 off 19 overs, after the overs were reduced from the original 20 overs, due to the park’s lightning warning system going off. The main contributors to the total are Timmy Surujbally with a magnificent 128—his inning included 14 fours, 9 sixes, and Linford Williams, 25.

The pick of the bowler for Southshore was Phillip Cameron with 2 for 27.

With Southshore needing a run rate of 9.052 per over to overhaul Lauderhill Jammers score of 172, they raced to the target, surpassing it in 16 overs with a final score of 173 for 2. Bradley Chung top-scoring with 59 (8 fours, 3 sixes), captain Michael Nembhard a quickfire 53 Not Out from 21 balls (7 fours, 2 sixes) and Cameron, starring with the bat, scored 43 Not Out securing Southshore’s 8-wicket victory.

Port St. Lucie forfeited to Tropics United. The competition will take a break for the Miami Carnival weekend, Sunday, October 13.
