Bailey Sowter 16
Rehn Wishart 12
The Heights made a good score of 4/110 off their 10 overs with Wirreanda replying with 6/61. Bailey Sowter(16) and Rehn Wishart(12) gave Wirreanda a good start, but the other batters could not support their early solid foundation.
THIRD GAME Adelaide High 5/120 defeated Wirreanda High 4/41.
Rehn Wishart 17 not out.
Nick Cummins 2/8
The third game against Adelaide High proved to be the most challenging. Adelaide scored at 12 runs an over to finish at 5/120. Nick Cummins bowled very well and finished with 2/8 from his over. In reply, Wirreanda scored 4/41 with Rehn Wishart again making a solid start and finished with 17 not out.
Although the team played without a win in this tournament, they gave their best effort for the school and played the game in a good spirit.
