KEHS cricket

KING Edward’s cricket has had a full week behind them. On Thursday, the U7 to U9’s played against Kokstad Junior School and an enjoyable afternoon of friendly competition was experienced.

On Saturday, 4 KEHS hosted a mini cricket festival for U7 to U9 pupils.

A total of 10 schools with their 360 pupils and 50 coaches enjoyed a day of cricket. While this was mostly used as a training and coaching opportunity, a pleasant spirit of competition was experienced by all.

On Monday, the U11 KEHS cricket players travelled to Kokstad to play against Kokstad Junior.

King Edward won the toss and elected to field first. Kokstad Junior made a target of 91 runs for the loss of three wickets. King Edward went in to bat and could only amass a total of 59 runs for the loss of four wickets in the allotted 15 overs.

Our U13 cricketers were more successful in their fixture putting 95 runs on the board before bowling Kokstad Junior out for 49 runs.
