MOORLANDS Primary School cricket team are through to the area finals of the 2013 Drax Cup.
The Mount school beat Holmfirth and Fixby during a closely fought Pennine partnership final held at Bradley.
In the deciding game some great bowling by both Moorlands and Fixby produced wickets for both sides, with Moorlands coming through at the end to win by just eight runs.
Moorlands will now play in the West Yorkshire area finals on 20th June at Pudsey St Lawrence Cricket Club.
This year is a record for the Drax Cup with entries from 440 primary schools across Yorkshire.
Teams play in a series of round robin events to produce four area winners, one from each region of Yorkshire, who will then play the 2013 Drax Cup finals at Headingley on Tuesday, July 9.
The competition is sponsored by Drax and organised by The Yorkshire County Cricket Club in conjunction with Yorkshire Cricket Board, Yorkshire Schools’ Cricket Association and The Yorkshire Cricket Foundation.
