Julien stars as St George East take Inter-District title

Leonardo Julien slammed a brilliant 82 not out to guide St George East to a nine-wicket victory over Victoria to clinch the Atlantic National Primary Schools Cricket League Inter-District title at the National Cricket Centre (NCC) in Balmain last Thursday.

Batting first, Victoria were restricted to 145 for three in their 20 overs, with Tyrese Reid taking two for 14 to keep the scoring in check. Chasing 146 runs at a run rate off 7.30 per over, St George East started off brilliantly thanks to Julien.

The right hander hardly put a foot wrong to lead St George East to 146 for one off 16.4 overs.

Summarised scores:

Victoria 145-3 (20 overs) (Tyrese Ried 2/14) vs St George East 146-1 (16.4 overs) (Leonardo Julien 82 n.o.)
