Lodge hails Under-15 winners
THE TRIUMPHANT Lodge School Under-15 cricketers were saluted on the first day of the new school term yesterday during morning assembly.
Coach and physical education teacher Clifton Phillips told NATIONSPORTS that the boys were still elated after capturing this year’s LIME Under-15 title.
“The guys worked really hard, they put a lot of effort into their game, and more importantly, stuck to their game plan,” he said.
“They really wanted to win. We played five games in the preliminaries, won three, gained first innings lead in one and lost first innings lead in the other.
“Then when the semi-final game got rained out we went through to the finals against the Garrison based on having more points than our semi-finalist opponents,” Phillips noted.
In the final, Lodge defeated Garrison by 28 runs. Captain Tarik Shorey was named Man Of The Match with his five for 15 in the first innings and 61 not out in the second innings. He had the distinction of taking 29 wickets in the preliminaries. (CH)
