The Trinidad Guardian / Central Zone will join South Zone in the 2018 finals of the Flow Secondary Schools hardball cricket tournament after it defeated East Zone by 58 runs in the semi-finals on Friday night at the Brian Lara Academy in Tarouba.
Earlier, in the day South Zone hammered North/North East by 142 runs and will now face Central at 2pm on Tuesday, also at the Brian Lara Academy.
Central Zone took first strike in the night cap game and on the back of 51 not out by Shunelle Swah and 17 not out from Hema Mahabir, guided their team to 139 for five off their 20 overs.
East Zone in reply was shot out for just 81 runs with Anna Maria Perreira scoring 46 and Aliyah Gomez 16. However, the star of the game was Daylia Alexander who took five wickets for 17 runs including a hattrick.
