St Peter’s brought up their first win of the tournament with a convincing 66 run victory over the favoured Hutt Valley High School.
It came largely on the back of a brilliant 118 from Tim Seifert. The captains’ knock led his side to a total of 242 for eight. Hut Valley in pursuit was dismissed for 176 after 43.4 overs.
As in the other games, Jarrod Pike was key for Hutt Valley and once again delivered at the start of the innings. The opener produced 75 on this occasion, but lost partners all too regularly.
A boundary laden 34 from Steven Carter made it respectable for Hutt Valley, but they never really threatened the target.
Jonathan Whitley came up with four key wickets for St Peter’s School, with his ten overs going for 35.
Previously, Seifert had stroked the ball all around the ground to bring up his ton. A few minor cameos contributed around him, but he was evidently the real danger man.
His 100 came off 125 balls and was significant in St Peter’s victory.
