1st XI Cricket team win Premier 2 Grade

Congratulations to our Boys 1st XI cricket team who overcame Rongotai College in the Premier 2 final last weekend. Rongotai went into bat and after a couple of early wickets had a 106 run partnership which saw them at 157 – 2. Newlands then managed to restrict them to 217.

In Newlands innings there was a 90 run partnership between Matthew Nel and Kavinda Dharmawardane before Matthew and Jonny Cottle put on 70 runs. Matthew ended up with 76 n/o to see Newlands home and into the Premier Reserve grade for Term 4.

Thanks to Cobus Nel for taking the team
