The Minor League 10/10 organized by the Guyana Softball league for primary schools and sponsored by Rohan Furniture establishment, Parbhu’s General Store and Nigel Bell promotions is at the final stage and Leonora
Primary and Tuschen will battle each other for prizes and to be the top school on the West Coast Demerara.
The semifinals saw both teams portray their strength as they dominated their opponents at the Leonora Primary School Ground.
The results are as follows: First semifinals:
Tuschen Primary school defeated Uitvlugt Primary by 7 wkts.
Uitvlugt Primary lost the toss and were inserted but were soon in trouble losing 2 quick wickets in the second over with the score on 2 bowled by Skipper Rezekiel Renee. But a partnership of 29 between their most talented batsman Anthony Baker 13 and Dominique Grant 5 and with the help of extras took the score to 31 before Baker lost his middle stump to Ganesh Rampersaud and grant being caught on the boundary trying to lift the scoring.
The others were decimated by the accurate Rampersaud and Renee and only Anthony Albert 8 showed any awareness of the situation as the others were strangled by the two bowlers in accuracy. Rezekiel Renee 4-13 and Rampersaud 3-2 were the bowlers to keep them in check.
In reply Tuschen Primary rushed to 42 for the loss of 3 wkts as they made the bowlers pay for wayward bowling and serving up half volleys. The powerful Renaldo Scott scored 14 laced with powerful shots that were deterred only by the boundary fielders as he gathered 14 not out (2×6) whereby Skipper as cool as he always is supported with 10 not out (1×4) as the jubilant Tuschen Team rushed onto the field upon achieving victory. They will now face Leonora Primary in the finals on Sunday 28th February at Leonora Primary School ground.
Leonora Primary hammered Windsor Forest Primary by 59 runs.
Leonora Primary won the toss and elected to bat racking up a massive 122-3 in 10 overs with Left handed batsman Captain Aryan scoring a blistering 40 laced with 2 massive sixes in which the balls had to be replaced and 4 exquisite fours which showed his ability to pierce the field and his knowledge far outwitting his opponents. He got support from the highly talented Darren Persaud who showed glimpses of his wide array of strokes on both sides of the wicket in compiling 26 which included 1×6 and 2x4s. The bowling of Windsor Forest was erratic and none of the bowlers showed any discipline as they paid for their lack of direction.
In their turn at the crease they were bowled out for a score that does not reflect their talents and belies their abilities in 63 off their 10 overs with only Rajeev Arjune with 26(3×4) and Hemchand Bisnauth 13 (1×4) offering any resistance. Nicholas Persaud with 3-16 and Vicky Persaud with 2-21 were the pick of the bowlers even though all the others bowled accurately without taking wickets.
Meanwhile, the Finals will be held on Sunday 28th February at The Leonora Primary School with two powerful teams in Tuschen and Leonora clashing with both teams having all the requirements to win and entertain the crowd.
