We played 2 matches last week.
On Tuesday we played against Bay Primary. We only played doubles and beat them 4
– 0. Congratulations to Nikyle, Jenna, Matthew and To’feeq. You did extremely
Friday 5 March we played against Sweet Valley Primary. We lost 2-4.
Well done to Nikyle and Jenna who both won their singles matches 6 – 3 each.

Our next match on is Friday against Pinelands.


The u/9 cricket team played against St. Josephs Primary on the 2nd of March. Everyone played extremely
well and we won the match. Liam Arendse was man of the match. He scored 11 runs from only 8 balls.

U/10 Cricket vs Golden Grove. On the 8th March the u/10 cricket boys played a match against Golden Grove
Primary School. The day was extremely hot and a warm wind didn’t add to the conditions either. We lost the
toss and bowled first. We started off well with our bowling which lead to very few extras and with some vi-
cious bowling by Jaco, 2/6 and Amir, 2/7, we managed to constrict the opposition to 79/5. We came in to bat
trying to overcome the heat and the extremely good bowling attack from Golden Grove. Unfortunately the
opposition got the better of us and we only managed 49/9 in 20 overs. The awards went to: Amir Varachia –
Bowling, Jaco Barnard – Batting and Sportsmanship and fielding went to Matthew Robberts. Thank you par-
ents for the great support.

U/11 Cricket vs Rosebank. We were sent in to bat and made 72 runs. Good batting by Yusri 27 and Yasin
13*. We restricted them to 48/9. Good bowling by Yusri 2wickets for 5 runs and Keane 4 wickets for 2 runs.
Man of the match: Yusri. WE ARE STILL UNBEATEN!!

Under 12 Cricket vs SACS. SACS kindly filled in a Bye for us allowing the boys to have a game. They have
an Under 12 A to D team. All the boys who couldn't make those teams were given a run against our Under
12's. So don't read too much into the result.
Groote Schuur Batted first and made: 145 runs in 20 overs. Tariq Fillies scored a stylish 50 not out - great in-
nings. Yanga Tolashe scored 27 good runs. Tashriq Salie made 17 while Spencer Hammond made 10. Reece
Bretteney and Rudo Makonco scored 5 and 3 not out respectively. The balance was made up by no balls,
wides, and byes!!
We bowled next and got them all out for 27. Bowling Analysis: Tariq Fillies 3 overs 3 wickets for 3 runs;
Yanga Tolashe 3 overs 3 wickets for 12 runs; Tashreeq Salie 3 overs 1 wickets for 3 runs; Reece Bretteney
FOUR overs 3 wickets for ZER0 runs; Hishaam Damon 2 overs 0 wickets for 6 runs. EXTRAS: 10.
Men of the match: Tariq Fillies and Reece Bretteney. We have now won 5 out of 5 - Well done boys. Their
manners were excellent and they were well dressed.

U/13 Cricket against Rosebank Primary. On Thursday 4 March we played against Rosebank Primary on a
very, very hot day! We lost the toss and were sent in to bat first. We scored 85 runs for 3 wickets only in 15
overs, with Sive scoring 50 n.o.! It was a brilliant display of powerful batting by Sive!
We restricted them to 17 runs for 7 wickets in the allotted 15 overs. Our bowlers all did very well with Allan
taking 3 wickets and he was also involved in a run-out! Although the opponents are on a learning curve with

On Saturday 27 February a group of volunteers arrived at school to fix our dilapidated cricket nets.
They worked very, but had some energy left to bowl a few overs and score some runs in our
friendly cricket match. Thank you to the families who were present. The 2nd innings will follow
                                                            in April. Will keep you informed.
