CAN Fusionz Boutique Passage United pull off a beaver-trick of titles?
That question will be answered when they meet Dover Juniors in next Sunday’s final of the Inspire Sports/National Sports Council Under-13 cricket competition at the 3Ws Oval.
In the semi-finals yesterday, Passage United comfortably defeated Counterpoint Wanderers by five wickets with 11.2 overs to spare at Dayrells Road and Dover Juniors easily beat St Philip Juniors by seven wickets with 69 balls available at Dover.
At Dayrells Road, needing a meagre 81 to win, Passage United reached the target for the loss of five wickets in 23.4 overs.
They were in early danger at 23 for three in the eighth over but Jherad Morris-Sealy (21) and Kilano Brathwaite (26) added a match-winning fourth wicket stand of 42 in 12.4 overs to see the champions home.  
Wanderers Juniors were dismissed for a paltry 80 in 34 overs after they were put in. They lost the early and prized wicket of Danny Chesham who came into the match with 430 runs – the most overall.
Chesham was well caught by Savio Trotman off left-arm spinner Shakkae Marshall for seven in the day’s fourth over. Marshall also accounted for the next opener Danyl Husbands without scoring.
Player-of-the-Match Marshall claimed four for 20 from seven overs.
At Dover, an attacking half-century from captain Limar Pierce spurred Dover Juniors into the final for the first time.
Player-of-the-Match Pierce cracked a run-a-ball 64, laced with eight fours and two sixes as the visitors made light work of their target of 119 – making it in 23.3 overs.
Electing to bat, St. Philip Juniors were dismissed for 118 in 33.1 overs.
Fast bowler Nadee Holder bowled both in-form opening batsmen Shian Brathwaite and Joshua Corbin with the third and fifth ball of the day’s second over. (EDH)
