The second match of the Brown-Williams Challenge Trophy was played on Wednesday 20th November at Wirreanda High School.
Ben Williamson from Heathfield High won the toss and decided to bat first. Heathfield lost an early wicket before a small recovery took the score to 7/102 with the Wirreanda bowlers having the slight advantage. Zach Young bowled beautifully and did most of the damage in taking 3/33 off his 6 overs. However a solid eighth wicket partnership of 54 helped the score to eventually reach 8/169 after the allocated 32 overs. Shaun Johns finished with 2/28 and Bailey Sowter 2/30.

Liam Hennessy and Shaun Johns opened the batting and took the score to 30. A mini collapse occurred, mainly due to the excellent bowling of Ben Williamson who took 5/5, and Wirreanda reached 9/82. Jack Robertson, who was playing in his first competitive game, went out to bat and had the unique distinction of scoring a run off the very first ball that he faced. Both Tyson Ames and Jack remained at the crease for five overs and put on the second highest partnership of the Wirreanda innings. Tyson finished with 22 not out, while Jack was 5 not out off 13 balls. The game ended with Wirreanda scoring 9/110 after 32 overs. 
 

The game was played in a very good spirit by both teams with Liam Hennessy captaining the side in a promising manner. Josh Putland, former Wirreanda student, did a very good job of umpiring the match.
