11 for Wesley Hall
TO THE TUNE of tumultuous cheers, chanting and singing by their supporters, Wesley Hall Primary School racked up their 11th title in the Guardian Group Herman Griffith Primary Schools Cricket Competition, registering an exciting victory by four wickets over Bayley’s Primary at Empire Club in Bank Hall yesterday.
The King Street, Bridgetown-based school, easily the most prolific winners in the competition’s history, withstood a valiant, late fightback by Bayley’s, who stoutly-defended their modest 117 for eight after winning the toss and batting.
Captain Joshua Morris and Dakio Worrell carried the winners to within 28 runs of victory with nine wickets and nine overs remaining, before the latter’s dismissal for 34 out of a partnership worth 67 triggered a slide in which five wickets tumbled for 24 runs.
