The under 19 boys finals was played on 26th June, the two finalist teams are Beauchamp College vs Wyggeston & Queen Elizabeth I College (QEI).
It was the closest game of the cricket finals as the game went right down to the wire of the very last over. It was Beauchamp College batting first and set a score of 29 runs for QEI to beat.
Beauchamp College required some good bowl outs and was able to deliver some feisty wicked spins, causing a nightmare for any batter to deal with! QEI had victory in sight but fell just short of 6 runs to finish on 123, resulting to a 129-123 win to Beauchamp College.
