After much planning over the last few months and with great anticipation, both the SFSCL Allstars and Masters squads headed out to NY to compete in the Annual 2017 Indy Cup in Queens/ Brooklyn this past weekend being hosted by the NYSCL.
Both squads shared the same successes as well as some disappointments over the 3 day competition but generally it was an enjoyable and positive trip for both the management and all the players involved.
The Allstars draw did not favor them as they saw themselves in the strongest group possible as they started the games on early Friday morning. Led by their likeable manager Dave Singh, on his first trip as manager, the Allstars managed to compete in all three of their games but fell just short due to over exuberance and a lack of calmness with their young batting lineup. The first two games they competed in and gave themselves a good chance of winning but unfortunately just fell short. They ended up losing their 3rd game on saturday morning to see their competition end early. Kevin Budhna had an outstanding competition with the bat and was well supported by Anil Bhawani, Anoop Basdeo, Rookesh, Ryan Adam, Masood, Raj Seepersaud, Damien Vincent, Ramesh and Tariq Jameer all contributing in other areas.
