In the Finals of the Inter-School Girls Competition of the Atlantic National Primary Schools Cricket League held yesterday (June 14) at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy, last year’s runners-up Cunaripo Presbyterian took home the title after defeating San Francique Presbyterian by 37 runs.
Safiya Emmanuel with a hard hit 54 rallied Cunaripo to 143/6 off their allotted 20 overs. San Francique was then restricted through fine bowling by Samantha Hosein. She grabbed four wickets for 15 runs to bring the victory home, as San Francique made 106 for nine wickets. Hosein ended a memorable season for Cunaripo and led from the front, ensuring her school left with the title.
On hand to share in the Cunaripo girls’ victory moment were Atlantic Sports Ambassadors and West Indies cricketers Kieron Pollard and Sunil Narine.
