Defending champions Bayley’s Primary made an emphatic statement today in their first match of the Herman Griffith Primary Schools Cricket Competition, slamming 262 for 3 in 25 overs, and then bowling out St. Marks for 38 runs to win by 224 runs at their Bayley’s home ground.
Leading the batting onslaught for the winners was Romari Alleyne who blitzed 105 as he sent the ball to all parts of the field in an amazing display. Alleyne got assistance from Aaron Lorde (37), Jonathan Griffith (32) and Latrell Greenidge (27).
A deflated St. Marks never got going and with Asa Hutchinson capturing 4 for 11 and Ramar Newton 4 for 6, it was a steady procession to and from the pavilion as the hosts won very easily. Only Diallo Blades with 10 reached double figures.
St. Stephen’s rebounded from last Friday’s loss to Wesley Hall to defeat Grazettes Primary by 75 runs at Passage Road, St. Michael.
Batting first, St. Stephen’s made 116 all out with Baggio Worrell making 21 and then they routed Grazettes for 41 with Shaquan Henry getting a wicket in his first over to start the problems for Grazettes. The victory gave St. Stephen’s their second win in two matches. It was Grazettes’ first loss having beaten St. Giles last week.
