Cricket at the Middle School (Issue 1 2017)
Written on the 2 March 2017
Last weekend, the 8A cricketers played Prince Alfred College (PAC) on the Brighton Road Oval at Sacred Heart Senior. Our boys bowled first and PAC made 5 for 67. SHC Wickets: Tim Stewart 1, Lachlan Hayball 1 Edward McCabe 1. def by SHC 5 for 110, Harvey Otto 23, Matt Barnes 16 and Jett Raphael 15*.
On Saturday (25 February), the 6/7B lads faced some strong opposition against the St Peter's 6A team. Despite a loss, we were really proud of how well our boys played, with everyone trying their best and having a go. A number of our team members haven't played before this season but that didn't stop them having a go.St Peter's 4/118
Lachlan and Harrison did a great job of sharing the keeping with only 8 byes let through in total.
Hamish Pepper 13 (Not Out)
Declan Iussa 9
Jake Pavia-Amato 4 (Not Out)
Baiden Mellors 5.
Despite the strong St Peters bowling unit with very few balls off line and no weak bowlers, the fact that all members of our team faced at least 6 balls was a bit of an achievement.
