Hilton College rise to the top of this week’s Belgotex Sports First XI Top 60 Rankings although they are joined there with St. Stithians who have led from the start of the year.
However Hilton have played very solid cricket this season and went on to complete a comfortable win over St. Charles College. Hilton College have grown into a formidable powerhouse of school cricket under the directorship of ex- Dolphins and Protea’s player, Dale Benkenstein, and will be hoping to stay on the top for season to come.
Yet Saints have led from the start and with the remaining matches still to be played one has to believe that St.Stithians will doing everything they can to own the No.1 spot by the conclusion of the season. An easy win over a weak team in the form of Monument was all they took away from last week yet few would bet against them finishing the season strongly.
There were also a couple of tight finishers last week with Grey College just managing to edge out Affies with a 4 run win and then it was Grey’s turn to taste their own medicine when KES beat them by 1 wicket. Pretoria Boys High also sneaked home with a 1 wicket win over Jeppe, thanks to Liam Treadwell returning figures of 4/37.
Grey High School’s, Tristan Stubbs was again in the runs with an unbeaten 109 runs against St Andrews College. Stubbs found good support in Luke Beaufort and Heath Richards who both notched up half centuries. St. Andrews College’s charge was led by David Rushmere who scored a beligerant 104 runs but it was sadly in a losing cause, SAC falling short by 51 runs.
