Bridgetown, Barbados - Barbados Youth team all-rounder Aaron Jones hit a boundary-studded half-century as Foundation captured the BCA Schools' Under-19 limited overs title for the second straight season with a 16-run win over Nicholls Baking Combermere in the final at Kensington Oval today.

Player-of-the-Match Jones, who went to the crease at No. 4, slammed five fours and the same number of sixes in the topscore of 66, which propelled Foundation to 164 for six off 30 overs after they were sent in.

Combermere, also runners-up last year, were restricted to 148 for seven. 

Jones won the Player-of-the-Match award as well in the 2012 final which Foundation won by eight wickets at the same venue.

Today's success was the fourth in five finals for Foundation, while Combermere were contesting a 17th final, having been champions nine times.
