Two bowlers shine in primary school cricket
Ignatius Byer’s allrounder Rajai Gibbons and Hilda Skeene’s Hayden Forde had outstanding bowling performances this week in the Guardian Group Herman Griffith Primary Schools Cricket Competition.
Gibbons rocked Half Moon Fort with a fine display of off-spin bowling on Tuesday at Lowlands, St Lucy.
Amazingly, he captured six wickets without conceding a run in four overs as Half Moon Fort were routed for just nine runs in 9.2 overs, replying to Ignatius Byer’s total 133 for one in 20 overs. Ian Boyce top-scored with 52 not out for Ignatius Byer.
Forde took a rare hattrick while returning the excellent figures of seven for 19 as Hilda Skeene defeated St Mark’s by nine wickets at King’s Park on Monday.
Meanwhile, reigning champions Bayley’s, Wesley Hall, Eden Lodge, Milton Lynch, St Matthews and Charles F. Broome have qualified for the Round of 16.
Wesley Hall and Eden Lodge topped Zone D1 and D2, respectively, with 4-0 records. Milton Lynch won all five of their matches in Zone C2, while St Matthews won their three in Zone B1.
Bayley’s and Charles F Broomes also advanced to the knockout phase after completing victories yesterday.
Charles F. Broome topped Zone B2 after defeating Grantley Prescod by nine wickets.
