A telling all-round performance by Jofra Archer spurred Livy Hoyte Foundation School to a 23-run win over St. Leonard’s Old Scholars and a quarter-final place in the fifth annual Christ Church Foundation School Joel Garner Twenty20 tapeball tournament as the winners of the Irvine King/Hugh Barker Zone C.
Playing at Briar Hall last night, Archer top-scored with 27 not out in a total of 115 for seven off 16 overs after Foundation were sent in.
Fast bowler Archer then grabbed six for 13 as last year’s losing finalists St. Leonard’s were bowled out for 92 in 15.4 overs.
The win was the second for Foundation and lifted them to seven points. St. Leonard’s finished second on six points.
Norman/Roy Marshall Brothers Lodge Road kept alive their hopes of reaching the quarter-finals with an 18-run win over Adrian Grant Police in the Lewin/Gilpin Jones Brothers Zone B.
