TWELVE-YEAR-OLD Adrian Hetmyer slammed his maiden century to lift the Rose Hall Canje Arborsmart to a whopping 295-run victory in their inaugural match of the Berbice Cricket Board /Tenelec U-15, 50-over competition on Sunday.
Playing at home, Rose Hall Canje won the toss and decided to bat against Edinburgh Warriors.
Heymyer, the nephew of West Indies cricketer Shimron Hetmyer and the son of former Guyana U-19 cricketer Seon Hetmyer, opened the batting with skipper Romario Ramdihol and the two added 161 before the latter was caught in the 28th over.
Ramdihol struck five fours off of 94 balls for his 63.
Hetmyer, who had 43 at the fall of the wicket, turned on the heat with quick singles and doubles. He and Jaden Edwards were able to bat their side to a current tournament-high of 353-1.
Hetmyer scored his 121 off 138 balls. In his innings, he struck three fours and two sixes.
Edwards also ran well between the wickets; his 58 from 73 balls included a single boundary.
The Warriors used eight bowlers, but only Dimitri Williams, 1-34 from 10 overs, was successful.
In their turn in the middle, the Warriors were routed for 58-9 (only 10 batted) in 13.2 overs.
Left-arm seamer, Nicholas Hall, who did the damage up front, finished with 2-21 from four overs, while leg spinner Abdulla Azad finished off the innings with 2-3 from 2.2 overs.
Both bowlers also orchestrated a run-out each.
Johnathan Outar, Lakeram Singh and Enrique Mickle supported with a wicket apiece.
Despite the solid bowling attack, the eventual winners could have routed the visiting side for single digits since there were 50 extras (41 of which were wides).
Michael Cort top scored with four from 26 balls; four other batsmen managed to score a single.
Not only are the winners’ total the highest to date, but Hetmyer’s century is the first to date in the competition.
