Visitors to KZN end with a flourish on final day of Oppenheimer Week

2011-10-05 00:00

ALTHOUGH there were excellent wins for hosts Maritzburg College, St Charles and Glenwood yesterday, the fourth and final day of Oppenheimer Week belonged to the visitors to KwaZulu-Natal as the Johannesburg-based St John’s, King Edward VII School (KES) and St Stithian’s won well, as did Affies of Pretoria and their neighbours Pretoria Boys’ High School (PBHS).

Maritzburg College opener Kewan Harries hit 101 against St Andrews (Grahamstown) on a match moved from Goldstones to Harwin’s at St Charles due to a wet outfield.

St Andrews were never in the picture against the impressive College pace and seam attack and lost by 158 runs. Daryn Dupavillon (5-19) got the prize wicket of Ian Herold before he finished off the tail, while captain Calvin Savage, Reegan Smith and Lionel Fouche did the rest of the damage.

St Charles were cruising at 113 for two when chasing the modest 150 set by St Alban’s (Pretoria) before the middle order wobbled. The home side had to rely on wicket-taking hero Jarrod Streicher (6-38) and Wiaan Luttig to pilot them home by three wickets.

Glenwood thumped Hudson Park by 193 runs, with Sibonela Mthimkhulu (4-21) the prime mover in bundling the East London lads out for 70.
