College vs Glenwood

Maritzburg College’s last official weekend summer sport fixtures of cricket, basketball and waterpolo were played against Glenwood and St Charles. Our U16 and XV rugby sides took part in the Voortrekker Night Series on Friday winning both their games convincingly. College also posted excellent canoeing results at the Dusi 2020 Marathon.

 

Cricket

This weekend our cricketers played 19 matches against Glenwood Boys High (NBH), with 16 wins, 2 losses and 1 draw. A number of the games were delayed and some shortened due to the rainy start.

1st team Report (Mr Robbie Coutts – 1st XI Coach)

After a late start at Glenwood preparing the wicket after a few days of rain, and thus a match reduced to 40 overs –  Glenwood won the toss on the Gibsons Oval and had no hesitation in putting the College 1st XI into bat in unsettled weather and conditions perfect for bowling.

Glenwood never allowed College to settle and the visitors were unable to put together any significant partnerships.  The leading partnership of the day being 36; between Captain Kent Goedeke and Andile Simelane.   Goedeke once again led from the front top scoring with 37. Simelane was the only other College batsman to make any meaningful contribution to the total, caught on the boundary, for a run-a-ball 24. College bowled out in the 39th over for 115.

Four overs into the Glenwood chase, shortly after lunch, the umpires had to call for the covers, as persistent rain took the players off the field.  Players returned to the field at 3pm, the Glenwood team started positively after the break and in conditions that that had significantly declined for a bowling side,  they were confident of obtaining a positive result.

The College bowlers knuckled down and the team must be commended for the quality of their bowling and fielding performance. The ball was changed three times in the Glenwood innings due to the rapid deterioration of the ball and every shot hit into the outfield ensuring a more difficult task for the College bowlers. Unfortunately for College it was always going to be difficult to defend their total of 115 and Glenwood got past the total in the 34th over, with 5 wickets down.

Scores in brief:

College 115 all out; Goedeke 37
Glenwood 119 for 5; Laithwaite 2 for 16
Glenwood won by 5 wickets

College Played 19, Won 16, Lost 2, Drew 1

Basketball

The final fixture for the summer term was played against St Charles in the main with College travelling to St Charles. With both 1st teams away at the St John’s U19 tournament the 2nd team game was the main game of the day. It was a tightly contested match with College emerging the victors 34 – 28. Nineteen games were played against St Charles and College won seventeen of the matches played ending the term on a high note.

1st team report (Jenny Orchard)

The 1st term participated in the annual St John’s basketball tournament which always proves to be a tough festival with teams from the Southern African regions sending teams to the tournament. College played St Andrew’s College Grahamstown and won the game 37 – 18 . Their second game was against Waterford from Swaziland and lost the game in the final minute 33-32. On Friday they played their third game against St Benedict’s which turned out to be a humdinger of a game with College winning in the last 30 seconds of the game with a 3-point basket from Nhlakanipho Ngcobo. Battle-weary the team then had to face tough encounters against Jeppe High and Michael Mount Waldorf School. Both of these games proved to be very tough with College losing both narrowly.

They made it through to the Round of 16 where they met the host school, St John’s College. Once again College had to chase a lead and clawed back into the game to come within three points of St John’s before the whistle called an end to the match. St John’s went on the face Michaelhouse in the final with ‘House bringing the trophy home to KZN. Despite the results not being what the team had hoped for, it was an enjoyable experience for them
