COUVA East Secondary rebounded from its disappointment in the south championship 50-over competition with an impressive performance in round one of the PowerGen Secondary Schools Intercol T20 tournament, yesterday.
Couva East just missed out on promotion to the premiership division next season after finishing second in the south championship 50-over competition earlier this season. Denzil Antoine struck an unbeaten 141 and Sachin Dean pitched in with 41 to lead Couva Secondary to a mammoth 228 for three in 20 overs batting first against Princes Town West Secondary.
In reply, Princes Town were bundled out for 50 with Ronnillstar Perriera doing the bulk of the damage claiming five for 11.
Round two will be played tomorrow.
