A-Class Batteries Bayley’s Primary emerged champions of the National Sports Council’s Guardian Group Herman Griffith Primary Schools Cricket Competition yesterday for a record fourth consecutive year when they comfortably defeated first-time finalists St Stephen’s by 60 runs at Empire Club.

Opting to bat first, Bayley’s made a challenging 138 for nine in their 25 overs before dismissing St Stephen’s for 78 in 22.5 overs to capture their seventh title overall.

Captain Damarko Wiggins, who was named Player Of The Final, got the last wicket by bowling Kai Lovell to spark wild celebrations among players and the large St Philip contingent who journeyed to Bank Hall.

“I’m very happy we won the championship again. It was not a difficult season, but a great competition,” Wiggins said. (LY)
