2012-10-09 00:00

THE last two days of the Hilton U14 Festival last week were limited-overs days and on Tuesday two T20 matches were played by each of the 12 participating teams. These followed limited-overs matches on Sunday and declaration cricket on the Saturday, results of which were given last Tuesday.

The only two teams to win four matches were St John’s, who drew their declaration game against hosts Hilton, and St Stithians who lost their last T20 game against Hilton. St John’s won their games against St Charles, Rondebosch, Westville and Maritzburg College. St Stithians beat St Charles, Maritzburg College, Wynberg and Michaelhouse.

There were a further three teams that won three of their matches, Grey College, Michaelhouse and St Alban’s. Grey beat Wynberg, Maritzburg College and Westville tied their T20 match against Michaelhouse and drew with Rondebosch. Michaelhouse in addition to the tie and the loss against St Stithians, beat Rondebosch, Wynberg and Parktown. St Albans wins were against Westville, Hilton and St Charles, with a draw against Maritzburg College and a narrow five-run loss against Wynberg in the last T20 game.

Two St Alban’s batsmen (first names not given), Roberts and van Heerden, both scored a century and each with a second score above 75, all unbeaten.

The Hilton first XI, after the four days at Michaelmas Week, where they did not fare too well, had an invitation to play a game against an Oppenheimer XI on the NF Oppenheimer ground in Randjesfontein on Sunday.

The Oppenheimer XI batted first, compiling a massive 292 for three with Kes Old boy Craig Lyons making 134. Two Hilton old boys, Doug Gain and Derek Crookes, made 72 and 42, respectively. Hilton batted well to reach 232 for eight, with Bantu Futshane top scoring with 85 and contributions from Marc van Wymeersch (45) and Armagh Cooke (26) taking them to one of their better scores this year.
