Alcos B have completed the Weekend League Division I double in their first year of existence, defeating United Victoria in the Final to claim the Payne Cup and add to the Colonist Cup already in their possession as table leaders after the regular season. United won the toss and put Alcos in, and saw O.Khan remove opener S.Chauhan with the first ball of the match. The top order steadied quickly and accumulated freely despite the dewy conditions, with D.Kohli and R.Bachhal each closing in on their fifties. Both fell short, however, and M.R.Sieam was only other batsman to really go on, shepherding the rest of the order past 200 and top scoring with 64n.o. as the sun broke through. Bowlers O.Khan and A.Ghalley each finished with 3/31 from their respective nine overs.United started cautiously and were never comfortable, and a claustrophobic sea fog rolling in only heightened the tension as the total appeared increasingly distant. O.Khan again led his team with 31, and figures of 3/19 from nine for P.Singh and 3/29 from 7 for S.Chauhan clearly indicate that the bowlers were well on top. United were eventually dismissed in the 38th over for 127, far short of the 216 needed.The full scorecard is available here: 2013 League Final;also: Semi-final A (1 v 4) and Semi-final B (2 v 3)Alcos B celebrated justly, and now head to Brockton Oval this weekend to face the BCMCL 2013 champions, Salim Akbar I. We wish them the best of luck.

The VDCA is supporting RBC and One Match in their current effort to register potential stem cell donors, and we hope you'll spread the word to your clubmates and encourage them to register at Victoria's "Swab Mob". This registration drive will take place on Thursdy 15 November at The Atrium (800 Yates St). Young males are the optimal donors, and especially those of diverse ethnic backgrounds, which makes the VDCA membership almost perfectly suited to donate. Registration takes only a few minutes and is non-invasive (no needles!) and could save a life. Hundreds of Canadians every year require a donor for stem cell transplant, and there are around a thousand such Canadians in need of a transplant right now to help them deal with diseases or conditions like leukemia, lymphoma, bone marrow deficiencies, or immune system disorders. For more information, please click the image at right. Registration is open from 11am to 8pm, at The Atrium, 800 Yates St, on Thursday 15 November. Please encourage your club members, and your family and friends, to support the RBC, One Match, and the VDCA, and register. More information on the Swab Mob facebook page
