Victory for HC and Combermere
A brilliant knock of 143 from Harrison College captain Hayden Hart and a four-wicket spell from fast bowler Joshua Griffith propelled them to a 198-runs victory over St George Secondary in the Sir Everton Weekes Under-13 Cricket Tournament yesterday.
St George Secondary won the toss and opted to bowl and hosts Harrison College’s batsmen favoured the tasty bowling served up to them slamming 283 for four from their allotted 35 overs. In response St George Secondary were bowled out for 85 in 15 overs.
A superb second-wicket partnership of 215 between Hart batting at number three and partner Kyle Lewis who scored 73 set the foundation for Harrison College. Also among the runs was opener Jabari Hunte with 16 while Nikhil Uttamchandani and Leonard O’Garro both ended on five not out.
The boys from Crumpton Street then came out and put the ball in the right place, led by Griffith with his right-arm pace. He took four for 28 from five overs and medium pacer O’Garro bagged two for six off three overs.
Batting for St George Reshawn Harris and Deshawn Brathwaite each made 13 while the other batsmen failed to get into double figures. Deshawn Thompson captured three of Harrison College’s wickets earlier when he bowled for 16 runs in four overs while Terrence Williams claimed one for 28 from four.
Also through to the quarter-finals are Combermere who won by ten wickets over the St Michael School. The Martindale’s Road, St Michael lads won the toss and chose to bat and posted 55 all out in 29.4 overs with Raheem Holligan-Thomas’ 17 being the highest individual score. Combermere then knocked off the runs in 6.1 overs rushing to 59 thanks to allrounder Matthew Forde who top-scored with 43 not out and Omari Goodridge 15 not out.
Spinner Nicholas Austin was the stand-out bowler for Combermere with four wickets for 12 runs from his spell of seven overs which included one maiden. Seth Agard also captured three wickets for nine from three overs.
