BAT'S THE WAY TO DO IT: Holywell Primary School produced their best performance of the season to win a girls' Year 5 Kwik Cricket tournament last week.

The school's captain Lisanne Engelbrecht was named player of the tournament as the Huntingdonshire side defeated Peterborough school The Beeches in the grand final.

A large group of parents and supporters gathered at the St Ivo Outdoor Complex, where Holywell posted a score of 250-0 in the final.

The Beeches, defending a superb Kwik Cricket record, lost key wickets at vital times in their run chase, eventually falling 15 runs short on 235-4.
