MANOR Primary School secured a place in the semi-finals of the Krish Maharaj Memorial under 11 League (hosted by Ilembe Primary Schools) after notching up a hat-trick of victories.

Matches are played on a league basis (home and away) in two pools with the top two teams in each pool advancing to the semi-finals.

Manor notched up back-to-back victories against Glenhills Primary and trounced KwaDukuza Primary on Wednesday at the Stanger Primary School Ground to claim pole position in pool A.

In the return match against Glenhills on Tuesday, the visitors batted first and posted 35/3 in their allotted 16-overs. None of the Glenhills batsmen registered double digits. Kiaren Maarbeel top scored with 14 runs to guide Manor to an emphatic 7-wickets victory with 7 overs to spare.

On Wednesday at the Stanger Primary School Ground, KwaDukuza Primary batted first and posted 36/4 in their allotted 16-overs. Keiran (10) top scored for KwaDukuza Primary.

In reply Manor cruised to a comfortable 7-wickets victory with six overs to spare thanks to a splendid 17 runs (which included four 4s) contribution from opener Kiaren Maarbeel. Coach of the Manor U11 outfit, Nathaniel Muniaha was ecstatic with the performance of his charges and urged the lads to stay focussed ahead of the semi-finals.

The Manor Primary under 13 lads will be hoping to emulate their under 11 team-mates when they kick off their campaign against hosts Dawnview on Thursday.

In other schools news, Ilembe Primary Schools will host a mini-cricket festival today (Wednesday) at the Country Club Ground commencing at 8.30am. Each school must be represented one team (boys or girls or mixed). Each school will play two matches.

The main purpose of mini cricket is not winning, but allowing the eight-year-old pupils to have fun and enjoyment through sport.
