Curl Simon and Justin Athanaze each bagged two wickets as they were able to contain the Bethesda batting line-up.
Meanwhile, in Saturday’s other contest, Bolans defeated Jennings by 20 runs to claim their first victory in the competition.
Winning the toss and batting first, Bolans posted 144 for 8 in their allotted 20 overs. Orlando Peters top scored with 57 runs while Gavin Williams made 37.
