Lovell hits series’ fourth cen­tury

Daily Nation (Barbados) - - Front Page -

BATS­MEN are surely mak­ing hay when the sun shines.

Raphael Lovell is just the lat­est to get into triple dig­its in this year’s Guardian Group Her­man Grif­fith Pri­mary Schools’ Cricket Com­pe­ti­tion, scor­ing the tour­na­ment’s fourth cen­tury to guide Mil­ton Lynch to a big 179-run vic­tory over Wills yes­ter­day.

Play­ing at Briar Hall, Lovell smashed an un­beaten 143 in his school’s mas­sive to­tal of 234 for two be­fore Derek Layne grabbed four wick­ets to help re­strict Wills to just 55 for seven off 25 overs. It was the high­est in­di­vid­ual score and fourth cen­tury in a very heavy run-scor­ing sea­son thus far.

Over at Eden Lodge, Mac­caria Haynes had a half-cen­tury in the home team’s 106-run win against Dea­cons Pri­mary. Haynes scored 53 in Eden Lodge’s to­tal of 153 for six be­fore Dea­cons were skit­tled out for just 47.

At Blen­heim ‘B’, a com­bined St Winifred’s and St An­gela’s squad held on for an en­thralling four-win vic­tory over Luther Thorne Me­mo­rial. Bat­ting first, St Winifred’s and St An­gela’s were bowled out for 116 runs in 21.5 overs but Luther Thorne barely missed out on an epic win when they barely fell short at 112 all out off of 23.1 overs.

Jor­dan Thomas took six for 23 at Greens as St Matthew’s de­fended 139 for nine by bowl­ing out St Jude’s for 101.

Jay­den Chase also had a five-for in Bay­ley’s Pri­mary easy nine-wicket win against St Mark’s Pri­mary at Rices.

Chase grabbed five for 14 as St Mark’s were routed for 46 be­fore Bay­ley’s raced to 49 for the loss of one wicket in just 7.1 overs.
