TO PLAY CRICKET IS EASY. TO UNDERSTAND THE GAME TAKES TIME.



MARTIN CLIFTON-DAVID SCHOLZ CHALLENGE SHIELD 2014

YEAR 8-9 

 THURSDAY 16th OCTOBER



 
Connor Lock(Captain), Jake Dorshorst, Jake Moulder, Nick Robertson, Billy Jenkins,
Trent Gale, Ryan Parry, Josh Spall, Lachlan Corr, Andrew Cowie-Taylor.


The Year 8/9 team travelled to Reynella East College for the first round match of the Martin Clifton-David Scholz Challenge Shield. Reynella won the toss and decided to bat first. It was soon apparent that it would be a hard day in the field for the Wirreanda boys. The first wicket fell at 40 when Ryan Parry broke through with a straight delivery for a LBW, and another fell at 57 when Connor Lock dismissed the opposing captain. However the runs kept flowing for Reynella and it was not until the score reached 167 that the third wicket fell. Thereafter a number of wickets fell quickly with Jake Dorshorst being the most successful bowler taking three wickets, while later in the innings he was involved in two run outs with Josh Spall. Reynella finally finished on 8/235.
Requiring just over six runs an over was too much of a task for the Wirreanda batsmen with only Josh Spall putting up any resistance with a score of 35. The team were all out for 84.
The boys are to be commended on their good sportsmanship and the positive spirit in which they played the game. Thank you to Jake Cuming who was the scorer and helped out during the day.

The Year 9-10 team travelled to Reynella East College for the second Martin Clifton-David Scholz game on Tuesday 21st October. As the weather conditions were hot, the game was reduced to 30 overs for each team. Casey Chester, who was making his debut as captain, won the toss and decided to field first. Connor Lock took an early wicket, but Reynella East recovered until Bodie Sowter took difficult and spectacular catch off his own bowling that brought on a mini collapse. After Wirreanda had reduced Reynella East to 7/112 there was a good fight back that took the score to 9/166 at the end of the innings. The wickets were shared amongst the bowlers with Connor Lock, Zach Young, Bodie Sowter and Thomas Thomson taking two each, while Jake Cuming finished with 1/24.
The Wirreanda innings started off badly with both openers Brody Thomson and Zach Young out early. However Bodie Sowter was able to overcome the initial tight bowling of the opposition and finish with his highest Wirreanda score of 41. One of the highlights of his innings was that he clubbed a six over point that brought a huge cheer from the rest of the team. Jake Cuming contributed a really good 12 before he misjudged a single and was tragically run out. Casey Chester swung lustily for a quick-fire 14 that included two fours and a big six over mid-wicket. The team were all out for 84.
A big thank you must go to Josh Golding who umpired the game.
