Clarke, Wesley Hall send early warning

Social Share

Ten-year-old?Rivaldo Clarke yesterday gave more than 100 reasons why nine-time Guardian General Herman Griffith Primary Schools Cricket champions Wesley Hall will be a force to be reckoned with this year as they hunt a record tenth title.
Clarke hit a classy unbeaten 129, laced with 18 fours and a six in his team’s massive total of 224 for three off their 25 overs against George Lamming Primary at Friendship to lead his side to a comfortable 117-run victory.
Displaying tremendous technique with his pulls and drives, Clarke was never threatened by the attack from George Lamming, except from a near run-out on 99 and a few anxious moments as he tried some cheeky shots on that score.
Solid contributions also came from Janash Jaunai who scored 36 and the belligerent Thiery Walcott, who made 45. George Lamming were dismissed for 108.
Over at Eden?Lodge, Tre Riley tore through the Deacons innings on his way to grabbing five wickets to help St Matthew’s to a 58-run win.
Riley ended with five wickets for nine runs, and along with Tristan Foster (2-3) and Koby Waithe (2-11), helped to rout their opponents who were in chase of 92 for victory, for just 33. (EZS/RB)
