Kingswood College 1st XI vs  Hudson Park High School
On: Saturday, 05 Oct 2019
Venue: Away

Kingswood won the toss and had no hesitation to bat first on a dry looking surface. It was clear from the start that batting was going to be hard work because of the slowness of the pitch and the thick outfield. The Kingswood batters worked hard and went into the drinks break with the score 73/3 after 25 overs. Aidan Meyer (72) played superbly and showed showed great maturity as he held the innings together. Kingswood lost wickets at regular intervals but thanks to Meyer and a very handy 20 runs from Matthew Stretton (batting at number 10) enabled Kingswood to reach a competitive 177 all out.

In reply, Hudson were soon in trouble (20/4) thanks to a disciplined opening spell from Josh von Holdt and Caleb Daniels. The Hudson pair of Nqaba Peter (64) and Babalo Nokele (27) played well in a partnership of 76 runs for the 5th wicket. The game went down to the wire with Hudson needing 24 from 18 balls with 3 wickets in hand. Caleb Daniels (4/17) showed outstanding death bowling skills and ultimately wrapped up the game for Kingswood.

Kingswood won by 10 runs.
