Tails up: Saints keen to trump DHS

2011-02-05 00:00

THIS is just the third Saturday of the term, but with the January festivals, Sunfoil Night league and T20 games, some schools have already played as many as 10 matches this year.

Four of the top school cricket games take place in the midlands today, with Kearsney hosting Westville in the Durban are­a.

St Charles have a tough encounter against Durban High School.

The latter, who lost to Kearsney in a T20 match and Northwood last Saturday, will want to prove they are a better team.

St Charles, after a good win against Glenwood this week, will have their tails up and aspire to do better than the equivalent fixture last year, where DHS lost just one wicket making 266.

Northwood, who have started well in giving DHS a hiding in their first game last weekend, travel to Balgowan to play Michaelhouse.


Fixtures (home side first): Maritzburg­ College vs Glenwood; St Charles vs DHS; Michaelhouse vs Northwood; Hilton vs Grey College; Thomas More vs Clifton; Weston vs Howick; St Henrys vs Creston; Hillcrest­ vs Sunfoil; Treverton vs Voortrekker; Alexandra vs Raisethorpe.

Selected fixtures (venues unknown): Northern KZN vs Hilton III; George Campbell vs Crawford LL; Carter vs Grace; Kloof vs New Forest; Gelofte vs Pinetown.
