WESTERN BUREAU:

Unbeaten Montego Bay Cricket Club (MBCC) Knights will go in search of yet another win this evening against Coral Gardens Raptors in the Hi-Lyte Insports Western Conference Basketball League.

The Knights, which have won six games on the trot, is the only unbeaten club left in the league and look set to get the better of the Raptors, who have put up inconsistent numbers all season long for a two-win, two-loss record. Game time is at 6:30 p.m. at MBCC.

Meanwhile, on Sunday, Savannah J-Hawks were grounded by the Knights 45-40 in a low-scoring but exciting game at Whithorn in Westmoreland.

Shooting guard Omroy Kerr led the scoring with 12 points and Chad Beckford added eight points and eight rebounds.

Richard Munroe and Adrian McCallum tallied eight points each for the J-Hawks, who rallied to within five points with less than two minutes left in the game but could not close the gap.

In the lone game scheduled for Thursday, J-Hawks will battle Chargers at MBCC.
