Title-holders Wesley Hall Primary and Eden Lodge Primary will contest the final of the Guardian Group Herman Griffith Memorial schools tournament, after securing contrasting semi-final victories yesterday.

Playing at Dover, Wesley Hall turned back the persistent Bayley’s Primary by three wickets while Eden Lodge pulled off a convincing seven-wicket triumph over St Christopher Primary at Friendship.

Wesley Hall will now chase their third title in five years when they go up against Eden Lodge who are in pursuit of their maiden title in the competition in their first-ever final. The final is set for 10:30 a.m. on Thursday at Empire. 

At Dover yesterday, Bayley’s racked up 124 for six off their 25 overs, with Jamario Mayers-Alleyne top scoring with 25, Hayden Small getting 13 and Nimar Bolden and Joshua Straughan, both scoring 11.

Thierry Walcott was the pick of the bowlers, taking three for 22 while captain Rivaldo Clarke finished with two for 28.

In response, Wesley Hall scored 125 for seven off their 23 overs, with Clarke leading from the front with 48 not out while Deondre Scott scored 17, and Walcott, 10.

At Friendship, St Christopher’s could only manage 87 for six off their 25 overs, after being sent in. Captain Joachim Forde top scored with 27 while Hackeel Forde chipped in with 25.

Medium pacer Ajani Watkins finished with two for 15 and Tyrell Farrell claiming two for 17.

In reply, Eden Lodge got a top score of 20 from Shaqukere Parris as they raced to their target off 13 overs, reaching 92 for three.

Watkins returned to play a solid role with the bat, finishing with 14 not out, and Tyrell Farrell, 12 not out, to see their side to victory.
