The unbeaten Palmerston North Boys' High School 1st XI were playing off for the Super 8 schools title in Palmerston North today.

They were up against the other unbeaten side, Hamilton Boys' High School, in the final at Manawaroa Park.

But Palmerston North Boys' High got away with a tight win yesterday against the other side which had two wins, Hastings Boys' High School.

Batting first, Boys' High were dismissed for 169 in the 49th over, much of that due to 48 from the bat of Luke McConaghty.

The Boys' High attack did just enough to see off Hastings who were dismissed seven runs short of the target. Corey Perrett took 4 for 26 and Isaac Harris 3 for 47 to see Hastings all out for 163 in the 48th over.

Running the cricket programme at Hastings is former Manawatu, Central Districts and New Zealand fast bowler Derek Stirling who is also the Hawke's Bay Cricket Association board's chairman.

The PNBHS 2nd XI, playing in place of Rotorua BHS, lost by 83 runs to Gisborne BHS.

In the other matches, Napier BHS beat Tauranga Boys' College by one wicket and Hamilton BHS beat New Plymouth BHS by three wickets.

Today, Hastings BHS and Gisborne BHS were playing off for third and fourth, Napier BHS and New Plymouth BHS were playing for fifth and sixth and Tauranga Boys' College and the Palmerston North 2nd XI for seventh and eighth.
