Excellent allround performance by Miguel Gordon gave Old Harbour their first victory in the national group phase of the SDC T20 round-of-16 last Sunday.

Following their shock defeat to Comfort a week ago, Old Harbour ensure there was no repeat, as they easily cut down Trout Hall to win by seven wickets at the Manley Horne Sport Complex in Ballards Valley, St Elizabeth.

Old Harbour join Comfort in second in the group after the Manchester side lost by three wickets to Junction/Bull Savannah in the day's feature game at the venue. Needing 12 runs to win from the final over after Comfort posted 158 for eight from 20 overs, the hosts responded with 162 for seven with three balls to spare.

Earlier it was a matter of completing the formalities for Old Harbour as Clarendon's Trout Hall made 130 for seven off 20 overs after winning the toss. The dreadlocks Kemar Isaacs led the bowling with two for 11 while Gordon's two wickets cost 31 runs.

In reply, Old Harbour went on the attack immediately, racing to 131 for three in 13 overs. Gordon was belligerent with the bat, as he was unbeaten on 66 while teammate Dempsey Salmon made 23.
