Fusionz Boutique Passage United are once again the champions of the Inspire Sports under-13 cricket competition. They won their fourth title yesterday with a convincing 66-run victory over first-time finalists Police Juniors at the Samuel Jackman Prescod Polytechnic Ground.
Passage United had won the first three years but lost the last three editions.
Chasing 162 to win from 35 overs, Police Juniors folded for 95 in 24.4 overs with no batsman reaching 20.
Rashawn Worrell who shared the new ball and was unsuccessful, later returned to grab four for 28 with his off-breaks. He was ably supported by Jayden Hoyte and Baggio Worrell with two wickets each for 10 and 20 runs respectively.
Earlier, Passage United opted to bat first and reached 161 for eight from their quota of 35 overs. Player-of-the-Match Corey Hoyte made an enterprising run-a-ball 47 spiced with five fours to give his side something to defend.
Off-spinner and captain Shamar Forde took three for 25 from his seven overs.
