Canty sides dominant

Tom Borcoskie whacked 115 off 60 balls to help Canterbury Country White end the South Island primary school tournament in style in Alexandra yesterday.

Christchurch Black posted 201 for eight from its 40 overs.

But Borcoskie swatted 20 fours and three sixes to lead his side to a 10-wicket win with more than 14 overs to spare.

He eventually retired to allow another player to have a bat.

Canterbury Country Red also had a win. It posted 221 for eight and Harrison Rooney took five for 38 to help dismiss Christchurch Red for 198 to secure a 23-run win.

While no winner is being announced this year, Canterbury teams dominated the tournament.

South Canterbury’s Joshua King had a day to remember at the bowling crease. He took five for 10 to help roll North Otago for 32.

Mid Canterbury’s Jack Hislop scored 62 from 52 and took three for 15 to help his side edge Southland Country by 20 runs.

Toby Duncan scored and unbeaten 112 from 71 balls for Otago Country Kopuwai to set up a 114-run win against Dunedin Blue.

Dunedin White beat Invercargill Metro by six wickets to restore some pride, and

Otago Country Tititea beat Marlborough by 69 runs thanks to half centuries by Ethan McSkimming and Angus McDiarmid.
