For the second year in arrow All Star went undefeated in the Caribbean Alliance competition until back to back disappointment in the finals saw them finish second again.  In what seem to be there day by a brillant first half All Stars came up short for the second straight year in the Caribbean Alliance 30 Overs Finals. Dredgers full of spectators as the day was dedicated to the late Lyndon Browne.

All Stars struck in the third over removing the dangerous Urvin Lewis and two overs later removing Wayne 'Heavy Foot' Constant with the score on 27 and 31 respectively. Wickets continue to fall with regularity. Jevon 'Boon' Howell who was on a mission to take the attack to the All Stars seemers was brilliantly stumped by Clarence Francis. Shortly after Devon Thomas, Marvin Webson and Colin Warner fell in quick succession leaving Lion Hill 66 for 9. But a last wicket stand of 24 seem to be just what the doctor ordered as Lion Hill posted a score of 90 all out of 20.2 overs with top scores coming from Jevon 'Boon' Howell and Kennedy Tonge 18 which included 3 sixes and 2 sixes respectively.

Ricky Buckley was the pick of the bowlers with four for 20 off six overs while Bowen had three for 22 off 5.2 overs. Alwyn Colbourne bagged two for 19 from four while Denley Barthley snatched one for 28.
