BARBADOS - cricket archive - 2005 Digicel Sir Garfield Sobers International Schools tournament
COMBERMERE are one match away from championship glory in the Digicel Sir Garfield Sobers International Schools Cricket Tournament.
They beat Alexandra by 73 runs in an all-Barbadian semifinal at Dayrells Road yesterday.
Alexandra folded for just 54, chasing a target of 128, with only two batsmen reaching double figures. Last year's Barbados Youth team captain Renaldo Parris topscored for the St Peter team with 15.
Cheyne Jones, Carleon Brome and Christopher Jordan each snatched three wickets, while wicket-keeper Shane Murray gobbled up four catches.
Combermere, who won the toss, would have been hoping for more than
127 after marching to 100 for one.
Andre Ferdinand (49) and Steve Blackett (39) were responsible for the fine start, but then the boys from Waterford collapsed with Parris engineering the slide.
Parris took five for eight to ensure that Alexandra would not have a big total to chase. However, Combermere's bowlers proved that it was enough for them to defend.
Combermere's reward is a place in today's final against St Stanislaus School at the Three Ws Oval.
The Guyanese won their semifinal by one wicket with two balls to spare over Dominica Schools at Bank Hall, Monday.
