The South Canterbury Primary A team lost to Dunedin on Sunday 4th March.
South Canterbury bowled first and again the bowlers did a fantastic job dismissing Dunedin Metro for 121. Off spinners Matt Cochrane-Bennett with 3/10 and Ben Thomson with 2/18 were the best bowlers.
The batting again let them down being bowled out for 70 with Tim Hepburn 11, Cullen Grace 14 and Ben Thomson 10 all getting starts but unable to go on to get a big score.
South Canterbury are showing alot of promise for such a young side with six players only YR 7 and once the batting kicks into life should prove a real handful for opposition teams.
Primary YR 5 & 6
South Canty YR 5&6 had a good win over Dunedin Metro.
After being put in to bat South Canterbury made 161 for 9 off there 35 overs. Ben Davenport 10, Harrison Darling 19, Cormack Tarrant 10 and Sam Richards 16no made sure South Canterbury’s total was a demanding one.
Very good bowling from Harrison Darling 2/8 and Jack Thomson 4/21 made sure Dunedin Metro failed in their chase.
South Canterbury’s next game is v CHCH Metro on March 18th in Timaru.
