It turned out to be a tight struggle for the first innings before Howick chased down Avondale’s total of 118, scoring 119/7.

Wickets were spread around the Howick bowlers with Prabhjot Singh taking 3/22, Harmet 2/20, Connah Thompson 2/33 and Ben McKendrick 2/23.

Wicket keeper Tom Paranthoiene took three good catches.

After reaching 79 before losing its second wicket with Sam Hosking scoring 32 and Harmet Singh 23 the Howick lads made hard work of reaching the required 119 by losing 5 more wickets on the way.

Still a great win in a tight match leaving Howick College second in the table with two wins and a draw.
