College vs Northwood

Maritzburg College’s cricket, basketball and waterpolo teams were in action this weekend with most of our fixtures being played against Northwood. Although not all of our 1st XV players were available, a College XV rugby team travelled to the Sarel Cilliers Festival to play against a Ferrum 1st XV team, and won their games 15-3 after the match was stopped early with lightning. College also posted excellent Athletics, Squash and Canoeing results over the week.

 

Cricket

This weekend our cricketers played 20 matches against Northwood Boys High (NBH), with 16 wins, 2 losses and 2 abandoned due to storms.

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

Northwood won the toss and had no hesitation in putting the College 1st XI into bat, a decision that did not disappoint College captain Kent Goedeke. The College start was solid, with Stefan Delport and debutant Jono van Zyl getting the home team to 56 for 0 at the first drinks break. Delport was the first wicket to fall, being bowled in an attempt accelerate the run rate.  Two quick wickets followed leaving the home side at 65 for 3. At the first tea break the game was evenly poised, with College on 95 for 3 off 25 overs and team leadership Kent Goedeke and Ross Klusener were preparing to lay the ground work for a successful first innings. The partnership was broken on the fifty mark with Klusener top edging a back-of-a-length delivery from opening bowler Chislett.  Northwood struck again picking up another two quick wickets leaving the home side on a precarious 120 for 6. Just as another partnership was beginning to develop, a great piece of fielding resulted in the run out of Goedeke for a well-played 52.  Another run out followed and some good death bowling from Northwood saw College bowled out for 183 with 3 overs remaining.

 

The Northwood innings started off at rapid pace, racing to 76 for 0 off the first 12 overs, at afternoon tea Northwood had reached 134 for 2.  The College team showed some grit and managed to create some pressure and this saw another 4 wickets fall. Unfortunately for College, Northwood held their nerve and got home, winning by 4 wickets.

 

Scores in brief:

College 183 all out
Goodeke 52
Van Zyl 38

Northwood 184 for 6
Simelane 3 for 43

Northwood won by 4 wickets

 Basketball

Nineteen of our basketball teams were in action on Friday and Saturday, with most of the matches being played against Northwood, and a couple of fillers against Linpark, played on the stagger. A total of 19 games were played and 15 of those against Northwood. College won 13 of the matches against Northwood with the U16B and U15C being the only sides to record loses.

 

1st team report (Jenny Orchard)

The fixture against Northwood in the main was the final home game of a rather brief period of summer sport therefore a capacity crowd was anticipated for the 1st team clash.

College began the match at a frenetic pace after winning the jump ball and quickly put 6 points on to the scoreboard. Northwood soon became used to the shot clock and came within 2 points of the hosts but College maintained their lead at the end of the first period leading the visitors by 6 points. Their confidence was up after both Nhlakanipho Ngcobo and Liam Janse van Rensburg had sunk a three-pointer.

Despite Northwood outscoring College in the 2nd period College still maintained a very narrow lead at the end of the first half (31 – 29) and they kept this lead up to the final whistle. The game was played at a great pace as each team fought to attain the ascendancy. The crowd from both schools were on their feet encouraging the respective team to victory but Zeke Oosthuis, the College coach, used his time-outs astutely in the final minute of the game to ensure a College victory. The final whistle drew an end to a tightly contested game with College winning 63 – 56 much to the delight of the vociferous crowd. Once again Nhlakanipho Ngcobo top scored for College with 19 points.
