Foundation crush St. Leonard’s by an innings and 23 runs to capture BCA Schools’ three-day title

Bridgetown, Barbados, December 7 - (www.bcacricket.org) - Christ Church Foundation crushed St. Leonard’s Boys’ by an innings and 23 runs to capture the 2019 BCA Schools’ division Championship on the third and last day of the Final today.

Following-on with a deficit of 183 and resuming on 22 without loss off five overs at the Harrison College ‘A ground, Crumpton Street, St. Leonard’s were bowled out for 160 in 44.5 overs.

All-rounder Rashad Worrell topscored with 51 including five fours and two sixes.

The main wreckers were left-arm spinners Nathan Sealy, with three for 33 and Rondre Yearwood, three for 57.

Among the architects of Foundation’s victory were Jordan Reifer and captain Dasani Griffith. Reifer scored 106 and Griffith 77 in a total of 256 all out off 71.4 overs as they added 137 in 32.3 overs for the third wicket on the opening day after Foundation lost the toss.

Reifer is the son of the late Barbados and Hampshire County Club fast bowler, Elvis Reifer, and brother of Raymon Reifer, who has played for West Indies in one Test and two One-Day Internationals and also represents Barbados Tridents in the Caribbean Premier League and Guyana Jaguars in regional first-class and 50-over Championships.

Griffith represented the Barbados Under-19 team in this year’s regional one-day Championship in St. Vincent & the Grenadines.

It was the third title for Foundation in four Finals in the last seven seasons following triumphs in 2013 and 2016.

Last year’s champions St. Leonard’s were appearing in a fourth straight Final and fifth in six years. They were also champions in 2014.

For Foundation, who hail from Church Hill, the success also marked their second BCA Schools’ title for 2019 after retaining the Under-15 Championship in July with a ten-wicket victory over Amaze Queen’s College on the second day of the three-day Final at Dayrells Road.

Summarised scores:

Foundation 256 all out (71.4 overs) (Jordan Reifer 106, Dasani Griffith 77, Nathan Sealy 25, Tariq Nurse 12; Rashad Worrell 4-62, Dre Springer 2-14, Dale Evans 2-43).
