THE honeymoon is over for the Dragons. The unbeaten run of the Sunday League debutants came to an end yesterday at Mission Road when Templars handed them a seven-wicket thrashing. Lying in second place in the standings before yesterday's game, the Dragons saw their enviable record of not having lost a match outright broken. Batting first, the Dragons, comprising Chinese and local-born players, managed to muster a paltry 172 before being bowled out in the 49th over. Their batting mainstays were Riaz Farcy (34) and Ravi Sujanani (42). It was not good enough against a side which has a superb batsman in Rahul Sharma. And true to his form, Sharma scored an accomplished 62, ably supported by Harvey Davis who was unbeaten on 54 as Templars rattled off the runs in only 35 overs for the loss of just three wickets. The defeat saw the Dragons tumble from second place to fourth in the standings. Meanwhile, Optimists strengthened their hold on the league, moving 18 points clear of closest contenders Templars, with a 10-wicket win over Little Sai Wan yesterday. The other team to register an outright win was Pakistan Association, who defeated Infidels by three wickets.
