IT?IS?title favourites St Christopher and Luther Thorne who will vie for primary schools cricket supremacy as Bayley’s won’t be making that return trip to the final after all.
     All-rounder Kadeem Alleyne grabbed an impressive five-wicket haul yesterday as St Christopher booked their spot in the Guardian General Herman Griffith Primary Schools Cricket title game with an eight-wicket victory over Bayley’s, who have lodged a protest about the condition of the pitch, claiming it was wet when the match started.
Playing at Bridgefield, Alleyne finished with five for nine while Andre Callender took three wickets to help bundle out last year’s finalists for just 51 in 11.5 overs.
Alleyne returned to score an unbeaten 12, pairing with Jadan Jones (17 n.o.) to see St Christopher home after the initial loss of two wickets.
Over at Friendship, Joshua Corbin hit an unbeaten 67 to steer Luther Thorne to a finals-clinching 68-run victory over Hillaby Turners Hall in the other semi-final.
Corbin’s half-century was the backbone of his side’s imposing total of 153-1, which was bolstered by knocks from Lijani Cherry (39) and Ajani Waterman (16 n.o.).
In their turn at the crease, Hillaby Turners Hall could only manage 85, failing to come to grips with Johnli Jordan (4-24), Cherry (2-21) and Sherran Thompson (2-22). The final is slated for Monday at Bank Hall.
Summarised scores:
At Bridgefield: Bayley’s 51 in 11.5 overs (Kadeem Alleyne 5-9, A. Callender 3-24). St Christopher 54-2 in 14.3 overs (J. Jones 17 n.o., K. Alleyne 12 n.o.).
St Christopher won by eight wickets.
At Friendship: Luther Thorne 153-1 in 25 overs (Joshua Corbin 67 n.o., L. Cherry 39, A. Waterman 16 n.o.). Hillaby Turners Hall 85 (W. Lee 18, J. Crichlow 13, S. Moulton 11, R. Alleyne 10 n.o.; J. Jordan 4-24, L. Cherry 2-21, S. Thompson 2-22). Luther Thorne won by 68 runs. (JM)
