But the inevitable finally happened as left-arm spinner Kassim Khan got the breakthrough by removing Chan for 21.Clinton Pestano joined Pereira, and he too was in some trouble against Khan. However, the pair wiped out the first innings deficit, but soon after Khan was again rewarded for bowling tight when he removed Pestano for 13.Pereira in company with Eon Hooper put together 32 runs for the seventh wicket, as the lead crossed the 50-mark.During that partnership there was momentum shift as Hooper brought out his attacking shots, hitting three sweetly timed boundaries during his valiant knock to remain unbeaten on 35.Pereira was dismissed by Sharaz Ramcharran for 27, while Keon Sinclair was removed by Devon Clements for three and Omesh Mathura was run out without scoring.Khan finished with 3-73, while pacer Nail Smith (2-21), Clements (2-19), Raun Johnson (1-45) and Ramcharran (1-30), were the other successful bowlers.The start of the third innings was superb for Upper Corentyne as Pestano (2-20) got opener Waheid Edwards in the first over, caught at first slip without scoring, at 5-1.Fellow opener Kandasammy Surujnarine and Jonathan Foo negotiated the remainder of play, and by lunch they have progressed to 22.After seeing off the period before the interval, the pair applied themselves. The duo kept picking ones and twos and the odd boundary when the opportunity was being presented.Surujnarine, especially, was quick to pounce on any width outside the offstump, be it the pacers of spinners.Lower Corentyne then lost Foo (40), and Gajanand Singh (10), in quick succession, off the bowling of Pestano and Eon Hooper.On the other hand, Surujnarine stood firm at the other end. However, after the interval Hooper made significant inroads, claiming four other wickets to finished with figures of 5-48.
