ST ANDREW'S and Nombulelo High became involved in a terrific basketball tussle in Grahamstown at the weekend, with St Andrew's eventually winning 41-32.
St Andrew's won all three matches played, but the first team encounter turned into a humdinger.
It was neck and neck for 75% of the game and by the end of the first half, the score was 23-21 in favour of Nombulelo.
In the third quarter, both teams continued taking turns to lead, but in the final quarter, St Andrew's started to stretch the scoreline. They maintained that momentum and showed good mental strength to win 41-32.
THE St Andrew's first cricket team registered a comfortable seven-wicket win over Selborne in their schools fixture in East London.
Batting first after winning the toss, Selborne lost early wickets to Sintu Manjezi and Murray Leith.
The home team's No 4 batsman, Morgan Steyn, then began to stage a recovery for Selborne, but was run out by Mbulelo Mama as he went for a second run.
After morning tea, Grant Stretton picked up four wickets to help dismiss Selborne for 87.
The pitch started to lose its bounce in the afternoon, but St Andrew's held firm as Leith and Brendan Owen secured the win.
Leith followed up his innings of 150 not out the previous weekend with another undefeated knock, this time making 42.
