Petit Bordel, Georgetown Secondary battle for the 2007 United Insurance Cricket Cup


The 2007 United Insurance Secondary Schools Cricket surely was destined to travel to the north of the island. But the question was whether North Leeward or North Central Windward.

The answer was set to be known yesterday, Thursday when the Petit Bordel Secondary and the Georgetown Secondary were scheduled to contest the final at the Sion Hill Playing Field.{{more}}

The two reached the stage reserved for the winners of the semi final round.

The North Leeward institution were the first to do so when they inflicted a four wicket win over the St. Vincent Grammar School.

A pumped up Grammar School laboured to 231 for 8 in their 40 overs. Dwayne Phillips batting at number seven struck 59 not out. Kevin Sam 30 and Mikhail Weekes 26 were the other main contributors.

Kesroy Debique 3 for 36 and Ithlan Browne 2 for 4 checked the Grammar School’s batting.

Petit Bordel responded well reaching 233 for 6 with six overs and two balls to spare.

Kesrick Williams led the successful chase with 85. Ronique Laborde contributed 62.

Zane Edwards 3 for 42 and Krishorn Gonsalves 2 for 38 bowled in a losing cause.

The following day, Tuesday, Georgetown overcame the Barrouallie Secondary by 51 runs at the Calliaqua Playing Field.

The Harper clan were in the limelight as Georgetown made 229. Andy led the way with 49, Teran 25 and Wayne 23.They sandwiched other good contributions from Julius Jack 41 and Desron Lavia 26.

Marcus John 3 for 45, Vicasy John 2 for 24 and Roydon Dickson 2 for 41 shared the bowling spoils for that Central Leeward institution.

But Barrouallie were their own undoing, recording four run outs, as they halted at 168. Coboy Caesar was their topscorer with 30 and Westwick Strough took 2 for 41 bowling for the Georgetown Secondary.
