Academy beat Passage United

Three-time champions defeated in U13 competition

Franklyn Stephenson’s Academy came away with a hard-fought five-wicket win over Fusionz Boutique Passage United as the Inspire Sports Under-13 cricket competition continued yesterday.

In the top-of-the-table clash of the two previously unbeaten teams in zone “A”, three-time champions Fusionz Boutiqe Passage United were bundled out for a modest 56 in 17 overs after being invited to bat.

The surprise package for Franklyn Stephenson’ s Academy was medium-pacer Raheem Archer with four for 18.  The West Terrace Primary student is better known for his batting exploits having made a splendid unbeaten 104 in last year’s final against Charles F. Broome Primary. He became the first person in the history of the tournament to achieve that feat. Archer was ably assisted by Renacko Belgrave three for three and Hans Campbell two for 22.

In reply, the visitors slipped to 39 for five at the lunch, after Passage United were all out well within the first session. Campbell the only player to reach doubles figures in the match with an undefeated 11 and Belgrave (seven not out) added the vital 18 runs needed as they won with 79 balls left.

At Bank Hall, CounterPoint Wanderers Juniors ‘B’ recorded their first victory in grand style.  They made a mammoth 240 for one from their allotted 35 overs, the highest total of the season so far.  It was built around an enterprising second-wicket stand of 228 between Kyle Lewis with an undefeated 97 and Kurt Lambert 78 not out.  Lewis faced 94 balls striking 14 fours, while Lambert hit eight fours from 109 deliveries.

Ten year-old, left-arm spinner Aaron Ballantyne claimed five for 23 from his seven overs as Empire Juniors were dismissed for 143 and Wanderers Juniors ‘B’ had an impressive 97-run win.

At Weymouth, tall, off-spinner Cody Scott bowled with good flight and control to grab five for 12, as Police Juniors clinched an important victory against St. George Lions who were bowled out for 91 needing 128 to win.
