1st XI and 2nd XI through to Cricket Schools’ Cup Final!

An historic Schools Cup final will take place at Osborne Park on Friday at 10.00am when RBAI 1st XI meet RBAI 2nd XI after the senior side defeated Wallace High by 120 runs in yesterday’s second semi-final at Osborne.

Thomas Johnston scored a century in RBAI’s impressive 247 for five in 40 overs and the Lisburn school were bowled out in the 29th over.

James Rose took four of the wickets but the two big ones were taken by Robert Craigan, who bowled Michael Waite for 12 — 157 fewer than he made in the quarter-final against Friends School — and then had Wallace captain Cameron Doak caught behind for the same score to reduce the visitors to 37 for three.

Johnston survived a straightforward chance on 49 and a more difficult one on 60, but, despite coming in at first wicket down, he brought up his century in the 36th over and, when the overs ran out, he was 127 not out and had hit 11 fours and two sixes.

The 2nd XI, who have defeated Ballyclare High, Belfast Royal Academy and then caused the shock of the season by beating Campbell College in the semi-final, will look forward to the mightiest of challenges of Friday!
