Finals spot for West Terrace
Known for their track and field prowess, the West Terrace boys are now showing they are a force in cricket.
The St James school pulled off a tense ten-run victory over traditionally-strong Bayley’s in their semi-final match at Passage Road yesterday to reach the final of the Guardian Group Herman Griffith Primary Schools Cricket Competition.
Sent in, West Terrace batted smartly in a measured approach to reach a challenging 126 for three in their 25 overs and then fielded and bowled tightly to restrict Bayley’s to 116 for six.
What made the victory even sweeter is that it was achieved after their star batsman, Jayden Leacock, who was batting beautifully, was forced to retire hurt on 55.
