Grade 8 Cricket Match Report – St Patricks Green Vs Launceston Church Grammar School (report supplied by LCGS)
Saturday 8th, November 2014
Chasing quite a solid total, Grammar went out with good spirits having both openers Lachlan Newland (27 n.o) and Sam Banfield (6 n.o) retire. With two fresh batsman at the crease, the St Pats’ bowlers put the pressure on early with Affan Shahzad unfortunately getting out for a golden duck. This however didn’t let Grammar’s determination to win go down with both Jack Crawford (14 n.o) and Matthew Hill (8 n.o) retiring as well, adding vital runs onto the scoreboard.
Throughout the game St Pats’ were looking strong with the ball, however some great batting from Grammar’s middle and bottom order saw them reach the run target in the first ball of the last over. Both teams played well throughout the game and should be congratulated on their efforts.
This week St Pats Green play Scotch Oakburn whilst Grammar play St Pats Gold at Faulkner Park. Hope all go well.
