Clean Bowled: South Island Primary Tournament 2010South Canterbury has suffered its first defeat at the South Island Primary Schools cricket tournament, as they go into the final day of competition today.

Winning the toss yesterday, SC put Dunedin Metro in to bat in the match in Alexandra. Rain saw the match start time delayed by two hours.

Dunedin Metro was all out for 136 with the last five wickets falling for six runs.

Team coach-manager John Threlkeld said there was some very good bowling and fielding from South Canterbury, with Nic O’Brien taking 3-21, Chris Hogan 2-1 off four overs and Michael Lees 2-10 off five overs.

While it appeared an achievable target, the damp wicket was not easy to bat on, Mr Threlkeld said.

SC was looking good at 95-4 but then went on to be all out for 105 with Patrick Simpson making 48 and Brett Walker 23.

While SC is now unlikely to win the tournament, it is possible they could still finish in the top four or five places.

In their final game of the tournament today, SC will play Buller at Dunstan High School in Alexandra.
