AERIAL ATTACK: Timaru Boys' High School batsman Matt McKenzie rides his luck against Waitaki on his way to a match-winning 51.

Timaru Boys' High School took out their annual junior exchange 3-1 against Waitaki Boys' High School in Oamaru.

The Year 9 TBHS cricket team paced its innings well, scoring 167 for five off 30 overs with Bailey Dryden scoring 74 not out as he rode his luck.

Waitaki never got going in reply, scoring only 87 for nine with James Copland taking two wickets. The Year 10 cricket team also triumphed after scoring 151 for five with Matt McKenzie scoring 51 and Alistair Harvey 34.

Again TBHS paced their innings well with several players getting into double figures. Waitaki struggled in reply, scoring 87 for 5 off their 30 overs.

Mark Otley impressed with two for eight off six overs and at times was unplayable with the speed of his deliveries. However, TBHS will need to work on their fielding when they face stronger sides.

The tennis team rounded off the exchange with a comprehensive 6-0 win.


Jack Deeley, Tom Johnston, Hugh Rollinson and Josh Reddicliffe completely outplayed their opponents in both singles and doubles.

TBHS' only defeat came in touch rugby, going down 11-4 as the young team struggled in the first half.

Down 11-1 the team showed great character after the break to score the only second-half points with Harrison Marr top scoring with two tries.
