Action from the girl’s rally final between East End Primary (yellow) and champions Cayman Prep.

The young ladies from Cayman Prep secured their third successive Inter-Primary Girls Cricket Rally title on Wednesday, May 1 at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex.

To win the tournament, Cayman Prep defeated East End Primary School 28 runs (0 wickets lost in 5 overs) to 27 runs (6 wickets lost in 6 overs) in the final after overcoming Cayman International School in the semi-finals and Sir John A. Cumber Primary School in the quarters. East End Primary’s journey to the final included a semi-final victory over St. Ignatius Catholic School and a quarter-final win over Edna Moyle Primary School.

In the third-place game, St. Ignatius Catholic defeated Cayman International School.

Schools participating in the Rally included Cayman Academy, East End Primary, Island Primary, Cayman Prep, Marie Martin Primary, Sir John A. Cumber Primary, Cayman International School, Edna Moyle Primary, Theoline L. McCoy Primary, St. Ignatius Catholic, Red Bay Primary and Joanna Clarke Primary.

The Inter-Primary Boys Cricket Rally, which started on Thursday, May 2, was abandoned midway through the group stage due to heavy rains. Organisers decided to reschedule the boys rally in early June.

The one-day inter-primary cricket rallies were introduced in 2022 by organisers to give the participating schools an opportunity to play an additional tournament apart from the league, which runs from May to June. The Rally is a 6-A-Side, six over tournament with each school playing a minimum of four games.

To add to the week’s excitement, regular league play returned on Friday, May 3 with a number of games being played, including:

Zone A Boys: Cayman Prep B beat Red Bay Primary 110 runs to 107 runs and Edna Moyle Primary got by Island Primary 101 runs to 99 runs. Cayman Academy was not scheduled to play.

Zone B Boys: Marie Martin Primary were victorious over Theoline L. McCoy Primary 19 runs to 18 runs and Cayman International School outlasted Sir John A. Cumber Primary 93 runs to 57 runs. Joanna Clarke Primary was not scheduled to play.

Zone A Girls: Red Bay Primary beat Cayman Prep B 68 runs to 63 runs and Edna Moyle Primary got by Island Primary 70 runs to 68 runs. Cayman Academy was not scheduled to play.

Zone B Girls: Marie Martin Primary were victorious over Theoline L. McCoy Primary 49 runs to 48 runs and Sir John A. Cumber Primary defeated Cayman International School 56 runs to 42 runs. Joanna Clarke Primary was not scheduled to play.

Round five of the 2024 season continues this Friday, May 10 with a full schedule of games including:

Zone A Boys and Girls: Island Primary vs. Red Bay Primary (at Red Bay Primary), Prospect Primary vs. Cayman Prep B (at Prospect Primary) and Cayman Academy vs. East End Primary (at Edna Moyle Primary). Edna Moyle Primary is not scheduled to play.

Zone B Boys and Girls: Theoline L. McCoy Primary vs. Cayman Prep A (at Theoline L. McCoy Primary), Sir John A. Cumber Primary vs. Joanna Clarke Primary (at Sir John A.
