Cunaripo Presbyterian created the upset of the season, when they humbled defending Atlantic Primary Schools champions Whim Anglican by six wickets at Bamboo Recreation Ground in Bamboo yesterday.

 

Whim, taking first strike, made just 74 all out, with skipper Joshua James the only open offering any resistance with 21 runs. Andy Mahase who had a great all-round game snared 3/11 and his partner at the other end Dillon Partap grabbed 4/12. 

 

Mahase then turned batsman and scored a well controlled 31 to lead his school to their most famous win at 75 for four wickets with eight balls to spare. On Wednesday, Whim looked like champions when they steamrolled Bamboo Government by 72 runs at Signal Hill in Tobago. 

 

James was in prime form, getting an unbeaten 80 to lead his school to an impressive 174 for four off their 20 overs. Bamboo in reply lost their main batsman, skipper Azarion Samuel early and struggled to 100 for six off their 20 overs losing the game handsomely.

 

The other Tobago team in the Inter-District competition, Bon Accord, has been off colour and has lost both matches to date. In their first game, they crashed to 49 all out to Tunapuna Presbyterian, who romped to a nine-wicket victory and in their second game yesterday, they were defeated by Sangre Grande Hindu by 17 runs.
