Taylor rescues Hurricanes
from Reifer onslaught
GEORGETOWN--Lower order bats-
man Jacques Taylor struck his third
first class half-century to rescue
Leeward Islands Hurricanes and
give them a handy lead over cham-
pions Guyana Jaguars yesterday.
Playing on the second day of the
rescheduled ninth round game in the
Regional four-day championship, bot-
tom placed Hurricanes rallied to 255 for
seven -- a first innings lead of 68 runs.
Taylor was unbeaten on an unvaluable
60 and partnered by Jeremiah Louis on
20, the pair having so far added 44 in an
unbroken eighth wicket stand.
Opener Montcin Hodge top-scored
with 70, his opening partner Chesney
Hughes chipped in with 40 while wick-
etkeeper Jahmar Hamilton got 37.
Barbadian left-arm seamer Raymon
Reifer was the best bowler with four for
47 while off-spinner Steven Jacobs has
taken two for 52.
Resuming the day on 62 without
loss, Hodge and Hughes extended their
opening stand to 115 before being sep-
arated when the left-handed Hughes
was caught at the wicket off seamer
Hodge then cruised to his 17th first
class half-century as he added a further
36 for the second wicket with the in-
form Keacy Carty (10).
The 29-year-old right-hander faced
224 deliveries in a shade over four hours
at the crease and struck 12 fours.
However, he was part of a slide that
saw five wickets tumble for 25 runs in
quick time as Reifer hurt the innings.
Tottering on 140 for six, Hurricanes
were energised by Taylor who put on a
face-saving 71 with Hamilton to take
Hurricanes into the lead.
Taylor has so far counted nine fours
and a six in an innings spanning 129
deliveries and 2-3/4 hours. (CMC )
out front after triple
Downs champion Rocco Bowen
continued the robust defence of
this title with a triple at the sce-
nic Pacific Northwest racetrack in
Washington, USA, yesterday.
The 27-year-old jockey reeled off
victories in race one with 15-1 outsider
Barasso, in race three with 3-1 chance
Dynamo Dixie before wrapping up a de-
cent outing with success in race seven
aboard favourite My Endless Love.
Bowen has nine wins from 38 starts
in the new season which got going on
April 8, and is five clear of Javier Matias.
He opened his account in a five-fur-
long sprint, carrying brown gelding
Barasso to a 1-3/4 length victory over
Bowen duelled with favourite Sweet
Swindler into the stretch before dispos-
ing of his opponent late on.
His second win came over 6-1/2
furlongs, combining with six-year-
old chestnut gelding Dynamo Dixie, to
edge the three-year-old and upwards
by a neck.
Dynamo Dixie set the pace along the
inside, was challenged by Drink Til You
Drop approaching the quarter-pole, and
disputed the lead before prevailing in
Bowen endured another close finish
in the day's final race when he steered
bay filly My Endless Love to victory by
a nose over the three-year-old maiden
He raced the bay off the pace set by
the duelling pair of Survivedandthrived
and Sister of the Sun before getting to
the front with a furlong to run and then
barely holding off the fast-finishing Is-
land Girl. (CMC)
