Several schools enjoyed a mid-term break but there was some good schoolboy cricket played over the weekend.
Rondebosch Boys’ High enjoyed a narrow, two-wicket win over rivals Wynberg in their low-scoring Southern Suburbs derby in Cape Town.
St Andrew’s College defeated the mighty Grey High on the back of a superb all-round showing from Bruce Phillips (107 and 3-15), this in spite of the bowling efforts of 2017 deputy Head Boy Campbell de Wet who took 4-39 for Grey.
Thando Ntini, son of Protea legend Makhaya, scored a half-century and took two wickets to help Selborne to victory over the old foe Queen’s, whilst Hudson Park had to work hard for a win over Stirling, keeping their good record intact.
Eastern Province and SA U19 star Jade Klerk claimed figures of 5-14 to help Colin Ingram’s alma mater, Woodridge College, to a comfortable win over Muir College.
In a low-scoring weekend in KZN, Maritzburg College, DHS and Glenwood picked up good wins as did Kearsney College.
Dale Steyn’s old school, Merensky High, suffered a rather heavy defeat to Centurion in the North Vaal, whilst Affies picked up a valuable win over the Bloemfontein powerhouse Grey College.
