On Tuesday 17th November 2015, Heathfield High came to Wirreanda Secondary School for the fourth match of the Jake Brown-Sean Williams Challenge Trophy.
Wirreanda lost the toss and were invited to bat. Zack Robertson and Mohit Khanna opened the batting and after seeing off the new ball Mohit was caught behind for 4. Zack played one of his more defensive innings scoring 7 off 50 balls. When Connor Lock came to the crease he started off cautiously, but when he was joined by Josh Spall the run rate improved with Connor finishing on 22 and Josh top scoring with 39 from 35 balls. Thereafter the batting collapsed with no one else reaching double figures and Wirreanda finishing on 9/105 after 30 overs.
The Wirreanda bowlers were on top at the start of the Heathfield innings. Nick Robertson took the first wicket with the score on 10, and Connor Lock then chipped in with two more wickets from five balls leaving Heathfield on 3/23. Jake Moulder took a brilliant catch at first slip to give the team a lot of confidence. However a dropped catch soon after gave Heathfield the impetus to regain control of the game and they never looked like they were in any further danger. They eventually finished on 5/152 from 19 overs. Two further highlights were that Brandon Deroussent playing in his first game took two catches and Trent Gale took two wickets from his only over.
Despite the disappointing result, there were many passages of excellent play throughout the day.
