Kingswood College hosted Pearson First team in Kingswood’s final cricket match of the season on Saturday 2 March. Kingswood won the toss opted to bowl first and soon had Pearson under pressure at 24/3.
Pearson played well from there and Kingswood missed a few chances that would have allowed them to possibly wrap up the innings sooner then they eventually did. Pearson batted for 72 overs before they were bowled out for 189 runs. Josh von Holdt (4/43) was outstanding again with the ball for Kingswood; he was well supported by Michael Fourie (3/19).
In reply, Kingswood had 40 overs left to bat in the day. Kingswood knew that a good start was vital if there would be any attempt at trying to chase down the total.
However, the Kingswood top order was blown away by some good bowling from Pearson. Adrian Wright played a very good innings of 52 not out as he held the Kingswood innings together. He found good support from Caleb Daniels (3 not out off 34 balls).
Kingswood ended on a 115/7 at the close which resulted in the match ending in a draw.
