Schools’ Twenty20 competition nearing final stages

2011-11-22 00:00

The CSA School’s Twenty20 competition is nearing the final stages in the group stages in the province and the semi-finalists from each region should be reached before long.

In the KZN Coastal region the schools were placed into 10 groups with the winners of each group being Grantleigh, Tongaat, Glenwood, DHS, Northwood, Crawford LL, Kloof, Kearsney, Westville and Umzinto­.

In the Inland zone the smaller schools are placed into four groups and the winner of each group is then set to play one of the four large boy’s schools. Michaelhouse will play the winner of the Northern KZN group who will either be Ferrum from Newcastle or Ladysmith Secondary who beat Ladysmith High School in their group final.

Hilton has already played Voortrekker and beaten them and will play Maritzburg College or Wartburg at the beginning of next year. The game between College and Wartburg is provisionally set for the first week of the term next year. The other region­ saw St Patricks win and they unfortunately withdrew from the game against St Charles. The latter will now probably play Michaelhouse early next year.

The regional finals will take place on January 18.

The eventual winner of the Coastal region will then play the winner of the Inland region at the Maritzburg Oval for the right to represent the Dolphin’s franchise at the national finals, which next year will be held in Potchefstroom.

Maritzburg College has repre- sented the Dolphin’s for the two years that the competition has been run.

Early this year, College beat St Charles in the Inland final and then beat Kearsney in the provincial final.

They were runners-up to Water-kloof, the eventual winners, in their group in Stellenbosch.

In the first year of the competition, College beat Durban High School in the provincial final and went on to lose by just one run in the National final against Menlo Park.
