STGC Retains 2017 ISSA U 16 Cricket Title

In what was set to be an intriguing day 2, rain had the final say as the entire day was lost because of the constant rain on Friday.

Kingston College was sent in to bat and found the going very hard. They were 4-1, 74-5, 83-8 and finally 109 ALL OUT. Captain Kirk McKenzie took 8 wickets while Carty took the remaining 2.

With their tails up, the Georgians went in with a purpose. We won 1st innings points and at 112-4 and the Georgians looked like posting a significant lead. However, a dramatic middle order collapse left the Knights being bowled out for 127, a lead of 18.

KC, determined to rally started briskly and at the close were 76-1, a lead of 58. However, with no play on day 2, St. George’s College won the drawn game by virtue of the 1st innings points.

The Georgians now turn their attention to the U 14 semi’s scheduled to be played on Monday against STATS. If we reach the final of the U 14, it would be a historic achievement as it means we would have reached the finals in all age categories; U 19, U 16 and U 14. There is clearly much cricket talent at STGC.
