Graeme College weekend senior and junior cricket results

Makhanda - There was a great fixture against Pearson High on Saturday with many games going to the wire.

The Graeme 2nd XI and u14A made the best of a two innings format, with some stunning results at the end of the day. In the 2nd XI match Graeme batted first and scored 114 all out in their first innings, with Raven Bush scoring 25.

Pearson then replied with 129 all out after Connor Pieterse finished with exceptional figures of 6 for 47. That gave Pearson a small lead of 15, and the 5 wicket second innings format created a thriller of a contest.

Graeme declared on 68 for 3, this time Ryan Bush top scoring with 28; leaving Pearson a target of 53 to win. Pieterse was in the wickets again taking 2 for 22, bowling Pearson out for 46 and winning by 6 runs. Schoolboy cricket cant get better than that.

There was a similar battle in the u14A game where Graeme batted first and scored 132 all out. Murray Tyson started his man of the match performance, scoring 42.

In reply, Pearson scored 152 all out with Tyson claiming 7 for 23. Graeme's second innings ended on 40, leaving a target of 19 for Pearson in the second innings. In another humdinger, Pearson achieved the target with one wicket remaining.

Saldy, the u15A match was very one sided with Pearson dominating the Graeme side.

The 1st XI lost an hour at the start of play, but managed to catch up some time during the course of the match. Graeme batted first on a lively surface, and a see-saw battle ensued. Both teams never gave an inch and some quality cricket ensued.

Pearson were bowled out in the 64th over for 182, leaving Graeme 46 oveers to bat. Pearson struck early but the Graeme batsmen showed superb fight against an impressive bowling attack. Mornay Kohl (40) and Aphiwe Mnyanda (20) batted for most of the innings, and were superbly assisted by Lagon Oerson.

Graeme were 129 for 6 at the close of play, leaving the good schoolboy cricket contest in a draw.
