Coca-Cola Schools T20 Challenge Winners
Congratulations to the 1st XI Cricket team who played in the Franchise Final versus their North-West counterparts, Potchefstroom Gimnasium today at Senwespark in in Potchefstroom, winning by 7 wickets in the 13th over.
We bowled well to a plan and did well to restrict them to 16/5 after 5 overs. In our batting innings we started with a miscommunication that led to Reuben du Toit being run out. Jodi and Liam Mostert steadied the innings and Billy van Zyl joined him and we successfully chased down the score 82/3
J de Sousa 26
L Mostert 27*
