FRAMESBY continued their excellent run of form this season with an emphatic 10-wicket victory over Uitenhage rivals Daniel Pienaar in their schools cricket clash at the weekend.
Framesby have put together an unbeaten run and are building a reputation as a team to watch in the EP schools leagues.
They won the Despatch Pro 20 tournament earlier this month and are now among the leading teams to contest the EP leg of the Coca-Cola Schools Twenty20 Challenge.
Daniel Pienaar batted first in their 40-over encounter and were in trouble from the outset.
The Framesby bowlers quickly found their rhythm and never gave the Uitenhage side an inch, with wickets tumbling at regular intervals.
Jaques du Preez and Juanre Roberts were the stars with the ball as they took seven wickets between them, with Daniel Pienaar being skittled for just 58 in 27 overs.
In reply, Framesby wasted no time in reaching their target as the openers knocked off the required runs in just six overs.
Tiaan Potgieter was in a lethal mood as he bludgeoned 52 of the 59 runs required in a remarkable display of hitting.
Pearson v Priory
PEARSON were made to work for their triumph over St Dominic's Priory at the weekend, eventually getting home by four wickets in their 50-overs match.
Sent into bat by the hosts, Priory struggled from early on with Geoffrey Miles picking up a wicket with the first ball of the second over.
Brydon Carse then bowled a superb spell as Priory slumped to 80/9, with Carse taking three for 16, Miles two for 21 and Mihlali May three for 23.
Priory, however, showed their fighting qualities as their last pair added 58 runs to take the total to 138.
Pearson lost their first wicket with only four runs on the board, but Carse and Michael Alberts put together a match-winning partnership of 69. Carse was run out for 37 while Alberts scored 39.
Priory came back strongly to pick up four more wickets as Pearson were made to work hard to win the game by four wickets.
Grey v St Andrew's
ST Andrew's defeated Grey High by four wickets at Grey at the weekend.
After losing the toss and being sent in to bat, Grey were dismissed for 116. Curtis Samboer top-scored with 46 and Lloyd Brown made 19.
In reply, St Andrew's batted with patience and control to pass the hosts' total for the loss of six wickets.
Shaakir Abrahams was the pick of the Grey bowlers with figures of two for 13 in 10 overs.
