East Bank Cricket Association won the Demerara Cricket Board (DCB) Under-17 Inter-Association Tournament after beating West Demerara by 61 runs, yesterday at the Georgetown Cricket Club Ground, Bourda.

Winning the toss and electing to bat, East Bank posted 181 for the loss of seven wickets, from their allotted 50 overs.
