A draw against Canterbury Country was enough to push South Canterbury in to the top spot at the South Island Primary Schools Cricket tournament.

In the third game of the tournament, Canterbury Country batted first, declaring at 195 for 4.

South Canterbury coach-manager John Threlkeld said it looked like it was going to be a big job for his team when they were three for nine runs.

Jack Woodley batted for two hours to achieve his seven runs.

Liam Cosgrove managed three runs over 75 minutes, while Patrick Simpson got his three in 58 minutes. Matt McKenzie notched up five in 49 minutes while Conor Scott defended for 53 minutes without scoring.

Eleventh man Chris Hogan was not out, for the team to finish on 62 for 9.

The draw meant South Canterbury was leading the competition by one point from Canterbury Country last night.

South Canterbury will play Dunedin Metro at Molyneux Park in Alexandra today. The tournament ends tomorrow.
