Game 2: QEGS 87-7 v URSTON GRAMMAR 86-2 (Hal Collinge from QEGS carried his bat as wickets tumbled but he saw his team home unbeaten on 25 with 3 balls to spare).
Game 3: QEGS 124-1 v NORDEN HIGH 71-4 (Joe Halstead, Harry Newman and Harry Bedford all retiring on 25 for QEGS as the Norden bowling was put to the sword, only Richard Fox for Norden High came to grips with the accuracy of the QEGS attack).
