King’s College remain on track for their third title in a row, having beaten St Peter’s School by seven wickets today.
Having chosen to bat, St Peters were then restricted to 139 all out in the first-innings. Kings showed little trouble in reaching the total and brought up the winning runs after 24.3 overs.
Luke Williamson was once again the star in the pursuit and made an unbeaten 81 from 77 balls. His main form of support came from Sam Klippel, who made 33 from 28 with 30 of those runs coming in boundaries.
Inroads were hard to come by for St Peter’s bowlers, as Williamson showed his class.
It came on the back of a good all-round team effort with the ball from King’s College.
Ben Turner was both economical and a wicket-taking threat, with his ten overs going for 23 as well as picking up three dismissals. Also amongst the wickets were Scott Johnston and Kim Kingstone who picked up a couple each.
There was some fight shown form the St Peter’s batsmen, with Brandon Weal remaining unbeaten at the end of the innings on 39. Four of the top five also made starts, but didn’t push on.
It leaves Kings tied at the top with Christchurch Boys, with the two teams scheduled to meet on Monday.
