vs King's College King’s 293/9 (Averill 4/49, Dickie 2/26) beat College 146/9 (Hocquard 23) by 147 runs King’s were too good for us in all departments, with two of their top three batsmen scoring 60 and three others getting 30 or more. In reply, we never got going in the face of some testing bowling, but were able to bat out the 50 overs for a small semblance of success. vs Canberra Grammar School College 172/8 (McClean 30*) drew with Canberra 171ao (Braithwaite 2/13, Averill 2/15, Barr 2/29) and then College 149/9 (Hocquard 61) beat Canberra 114ao (Anderson 2/9, Dickie 2/14) by 35 runs The weather again played its part, with the two day match changing to two one day games. In the first, College batted steadily to accumulate 172 before declaring once the rains came. Canberra batted for 39 overs, but were not able to reach our score. We then played a 25 over a side game, in which Will Hocquard led the way with his maiden 50. Good fielding and tight bowling put too much pressure on Canberra who could not reach our total. vs St Bede’s College College 297ao (Idiens 89, McClean 58, Hocquard 31) beat St Bede’s 152ao (Averill 5/18, Lund 2/24, Braithwaite 2/47) and 101ao (Braithwaite 3/16, Dickie 2/8, Lund 2/9) by an innings and 44 runs College produced a near complete performance led by Sam Idiens and Tom McClean with the bat and then Sam Averill (taking his first five for the 1st XI) and Jordan Braithwaite with the ball. Catches were caught, including a screamer by James Luxon, and we were simply too good for the St Bede’s team. Particularly pleasing was the return of Sam Dickie and Harrison Lund as the spin bowling pair, given Tom McClean, the premier spinner in the team, was unable to bowl.

vs Christchurch Boys’ High School 1st XI College 80ao (Lund 3/42) and 162ao (Rookes 52) lost to CBHS 1st XI 325/3dec (Lund 2/61) by an innings and 83 runs For the second year running we were unable to compete with a very competitive CBHS 1st XI. We were bowled out cheaply and then capitulated in the field, with CBHS scoring over 300 in just over 45 overs. We battled in our second innings, lasting over 70 overs, but the damage was done. Again, only Monty Rookes really threatened to delay the inevitable with a fighting 50. vs Whanganui Collegiate School College 235/7dec (McClean 72, Breitmeyer 52*) and 146/7dec (Luxon 40) drew with WCS 147ao (Metherell 3/30 and Breitmeyer 3/21) and 213/8 (McClean 4/43) This was a good game played in a positive manner by both teams. College had the upper hand throughout but were unable to push their advantage home, despite some clean hitting by Thomas McClean and Ben Breitmeyer and some calm defensive bowling by Thomas McClean in the fourth innings. As it was, we ran out of time, with College needing two wickets and WCS needing another 22 runs. Term 1 also saw four 20/20 matches against CBHS 2nd XI, Shirley Boys’ High School and StAC. College won through to the final against CBHS 1st XI, where we lost, but we played a good style of T20 cricket throughout the tournament. George Anderson was the leading run scorer with 138 runs. The term’s cricket was brought to a halt with the Covid-19 lockdown, so the final two day match and annual pre-season match against Onslow College were both cancelled.

vs St Andrew’s College 1st XI StAC 171ao (Averill 3/34) and 234/5dec (Averill 3/45) drew with College 166ao (Manson 41) and 180/7 (Idiens 54, McClean 50) College were well on top in the first section of the match and looked like having a strong lead on the first innings, only to lose five quick wickets for 30 runs in the middle of our innings. Sam Averill bowled well in both innings, but the target StAC set was just a little too much, despite fighting half centuries for Sam Idiens and Tom McClean.

vs Christchurch Boys’ High School 2nd XI CBHS 236ao (Lund 3/42) and

260/7dec (Huntley 2/22) drew with College 287/7dec (Idiens 81, Manson 85, Rookes 71) and 43/3 CBHS 2nd XI proved to be stronger than anticipated, but our batting looked to be strong enough to get a win. We controlled their innings without getting the wickets we hoped for, but then easily went past their total with excellent knocks from Sam Idiens at the top of the order and Caleb Manson and Monty Rookes in the middle. We were not on the money with our bowling in the second innings and, with rain coming in, we were always unlikely to push for the win. vs Otago Boys’ High School OBHS 391/4dec beat College 155ao (Idiens 41) and 203ao (Rookes 81) by an innings and 33 runs With Otago coming to Christchurch we were hopeful of a good match, but OBHS proved far too strong, with four of the top five batsmen getting past 50 (two got 100s) and our batting was not good enough. There was the positive of another half century for Monty Rookes.
