The Year 8-9 team hosted Woodcroft College at Wirreanda Secondary School on Friday 27th October. It was a perfect day for cricket with the sun shining and a slight breeze.
Tylor Cuming, in his first attempt at leading the team, won the toss and sent Woodcroft into bat. At the 10 over drinks break, Wirreanda had bowled well to restrict Woodcroft to a reasonable total of 2/46. However after some solid hitting in the last part of their innings, Woodcroft finished on 5/113. The best bowling came from Josh de Roode who finished with 2/13 and Dawson Horrell who bowled one over for figures of 1/1. He then did an excellent job of wicket keeping in the second half of the Woodcroft innings. Three good catches were taken by Llewelyn Wisman, Tyson Craigie and Tylor Cuming.
Wirreanda lost their opening batsmen in the first two overs, but Jayden Hoffmann and Lachlan Prior put on a solid partnership with Jayden finishing on 15 and Lachlan 21. There were two nice cameos at the end of the innings by Josh de Roode and Tylor Cuming hitting out for some useful runs. Wirreanda finished short of Woodcroft's total with a score of 8/85.
The game was played in an excellent spirit with both teams putting in a high level performance.
Well done to everyone involved and also to Devin Edwards who did a great job of umpiring.
