The Thursday March 24, competition which came off at the Mawuli SHS park in Ho was for Primary and JHS this time round.

IMG-20160328-WA0007Two groups were made with 5 schools for each of the boys and girls categories.

In the Girl’s Category, defending champions Ho Kpodzi, won the Primary division, against Methodist by 44 runs, after batting first and making 101 runs, no wickets in 10 overs.

Prosper Kwame who is the Coach for Ho Kpodzi says, he’ll give all the credit to Coach Angela Morkeh who trained his girls.

“I’ll give all the credit to Angela, because she trained the team. She was with them the whole of the term training them with the equipments. I see Cricket now as a very good game and entreat our leaders to take much interest in it.”

Mawuli JHS were superior over RC girls winning by 10 wickets. That game saw the lowest runs as RC girls batted first and made 36 runs in 8 overs. Mawuli then stepped up and made 37 runs in 4.2 overs.

Mawuli primary boys led by level one coach, Kingsley Broni Agbezuge defended their title against Ho kpodzi by 8 wickets.

Coach Agbezuge believes he had techniques that wasn’t known to any of the coaches and had wanted all 4 titles.

“I feel great, and actually I was coming for the four trophies but the JHS boys and Primary girls didn’t play according to instruction, so I’m ok with the two. As a level 1 coach, I know a lot is expected of me so I started varying the various techniques which my other colleagues didn’t have and I think worked for me.”

Another defending champions were Ho Kpodzi B who easily brushed aside Housing JHS by 6 wickets after making 53 runs 4 wickets in 10 overs. Peace Koka is the Coach of Ho Kpodzi B JHS and believes enough training ensured they win.

“The secret behind the win is enough training and by the grace of God. Our opponents were competent and we’re also competent but our enough training made us superior over them. Cricket is a very nice game, very entertaining and very interesting so people should come join us.”

There were accolades for winners and runners ups in all categories. Fun day as it should be, there was food, drinks and music to entertain the kids.

Out of the schools invited, Anglican School were not able to participate, with Presby School playing their first competitive game after their introductory 2 terms ago.

Cricket Operations Officer, Henry Ackom who came with other officers from Accra to help make the competition a success says Volta is doing well but there’s more room for improvement.

“I’m telling everybody that Volta is doing well so they should be ready because cricket wouldn’t belong to them alone. I’ve seen the day as exciting but the quality was slow because they didn’t practice and also because this was quickly put together so there is room for improvement.”

International Cricket Council’s (ICC) target of making many know the game of Cricket is indeed on course, and Volta Cricket Association should be trusted to help promote the game to it’s highest level.
