The Wairarapa College 1st XI have found some late season form, easily winning three matches over the past week.

First up Waicol cruised to 130-run victory in a 30-over game with Feilding High School at Waicol last Thursday.

Opener Zach Anstis [68], Felix Stephens [62], and Samuel Payne [85] hit half centuries in setting the formidable score. Feilding were never in the hunt and were 185-7 at the end of their 30 overs.

Payne continued his good batting form, scoring another half century [81], in a 188-run thrashing of Kapiti College in a Wellington Secondary School Premier Three match at Kapiti on Saturday.

Payne had good support from Oliver Gillespie [54], and Conley Alexander [44] in setting an imposing total of 303 off their 50 overs.

Kapiti progressed to 76-2 before a batting collapse saw them lose their last eight wickets for 39 runs. Medium pacer Anstis was the best of the bowlers with 5-24, while Payne picked up 3-18.

The win has lifted Waicol to fourth equal in the championship, with Wellington College Gold to play this Saturday at Waicol.

Mark Steventon returned to form with 112 against Hastings BHS.

Mark Steventon returned to form with a hard-hit century in Waicol’s 39-run defeat of Hastings Boys High School in a 45-over fixture at Waicol on Tuesday.

The Wairarapa representative punished anything short or too full, hitting 15 fours and two sixes, in his score of 112 off 82 balls, with the home side finishing on 275.

Waicol picked up regular wickets with tight consistent bowling, and restricted the visitors to 239, with Anstis claiming three wickets.

The Waicol girls’ 1st XI also had their first outing of the year, cruising to a five-wicket win over Feilding High School in a T20 match at Waicol.

The visitors batted first scoring 157-4 in their 20 overs, although their score was boosted by some wayward bowling from Waicol, who conceded 75 extras, including 35 wides and 38 no balls.

Wairarapa Koru Jessica Roseingrave was the best of the bowlers with 2-13.

Charlize Carson-Butler top scored with 34 as Waicol brought up the winning runs in the 17th over.

Jake Jonas again highlighted his all-round capabilities taking a five-wicket bag and scoring an outstanding half century for Rathkeale in an outright loss to Lindisfarne in a topsy-turvy two-day match played at Rathkeale on Sunday and Monday.

Wicketkeeper Andrew Taylor led the way in Rathkeale’s first innings, with 64 in their total of 157. In reply Lindisfarne fell to 6-3, a position they never recovered from to be all out for 85, with Jonas brilliant in taking 5-11 off 14.3 overs.

Jonas was immediately back in the action in Rathkeale’s second innings of 199, scoring a patient 92, from 173 balls, including ten fours and one six.

That left Lindisfarne a target of 272, which they chased down in the 79th over, with Sam Cassidy [79], and Sam Bartram [89no] combining in a match winning 115-run fourth wicket partnership.
