Overall Standings and team Positions after the Pool
The tournament was this year split into 2 sections with a new format. The top two teams in each Pool went to have play off matches for the Main ‘CABS’ trophy final and the bottom two teams went to have play off matches for a New Plate Trophy—very kindly donated this year by the White Family in memory of the late Mr Mike White who was a past Chairman of the St George’s Parent T/20 Committee.
St George’s, like all the other teams had two more play off matches to play in order to try and qualify for the finals.
1. St George’s v Churchill (on Weaver Field)
Churchill 63 all out in 11 overs (D Sly 4-26)
St George’s 65-6 in 11 overs (J Ives 17 K Matigimu 16*)
Result : Won by 4 wickets
2. St George’s v Peterhouse
St George’s 149-4 in 20 overs (J Ives 65 J Myers 62*)
Peterhouse 155-3 in 15 overs (D Peall 78) (J Ives 3-39)
Result : Lost by 7 wickets
The Pool matches and Play off matches produced some very close and exciting matches with both some very low scoring but close finishes not only for St George’s but for other teams aswell. There were also some huge scores with many 6’s hit—much more than ever before.
The finals of the Plate event was between St Andrew’s College (SA) and Hellenic Academy who did extremely well in this their first encounter at our T/20 Festival.
St Andrew’s won the Plate Final.
Hellenic 186-5 in 20 overs (K Van Leeuwen 95* R Wallbridge 20*)
St Andrew’s 187-2 in 18th over (M Mama 64* M Leith 88)
Well done to them for winning by 8 wickets.
Then the main Trophy Final was a very closely contested affair to see who was going to get to the finals. It came down to the last 3 sets of matches in the play offs and because Churchill beat P.E in a thrilling match on Weaver Field it gave Peterhouse a chance to make it to the finals as they had beaten St George’s. St John’s had to beat Falcon which they did and so it was Peterhouse (in the finals for the second year running!) against St John’s College.
Peterhouse 155-3 in 20 overs (Moolman 34 Nyamusa 31)
St. John’s College 150-9 in 20 overs (Snyman 37)
We congratulate Peterhouse on squeezing out another victory, after winning last year’s final against St. John’s College (South Africa)
At the end of the tournament the overall positions were:
|1st: Peterhouse||7th: St. Andrew’s College (SA)|
3rd: St. George’s College
9th: Kingswood College (SA)
10th: St. Benedict’s College (SA)
