Manchester High have one hand on the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA) all-island Spalding Cup. The rural area Headley Cup winners recorded first innings honours over Wolmer's Boys on yesterday's second and penultimate day of the cricket final at Melbourne Oval.

Wolmer's, who began the day on 29 for two in chase of Manchester's first innings total of 230, were bowled out for 92, 138 runs short of their target. Part-time off-spinner Raghni Francis did major damage, taking five for 19.

Manchester, batting a second time, reached 158 for four - an overall lead of 296 - when rain brought a premature end to play at tea.

Captain Oshane Walter, 42, and Chris Powell, 36, have so far led the way for Manchester in their second innings. Caude Witter, 19, and Brad Barnes, 11, will resume batting when play gets underway at 10 a.m. today.

Another part-time off-spinner, Nicholas Walters, and fast bowler Chris Powell, took two wickets each.
