… Bonne Aventure takes girls title
Bonne Aventure Presbyterian was crowned 2017 Atlantic National Primary School champions after they defeated Cunaripo by four wickets also at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port-of-Spain.
The star of the show for Bonne Aventure was Amanda Farrow who produced a fine all round display to give her school the title. Bonne Aventure batted first and scored 79 for six wickets with Farrow leading the way with 27. Cunaripo was expected to get past this score but lost wickets regularly and this affected their momentum charging towards the score. Farrow was the best of the bowlers for Bonne Aventure taking two wickets for six runs.
Cunaripo was determined however and it came down to the last ball with four runs needed but Bonne Aventure held their nerve and although Cunaripo was able to run two runs, they found themselves still short by one.
