Second XI Cricket

The Scots All Saints College Second XI travelled to Redfield last weekend for Round 8 of the ISA competition. Unfortunately, determining the winner of the match was virtually a ‘lottery’ due to the condition of the field. The kikuyu outfield was so long that many ‘proper’ cricket shots were totally negated. Any ball hit along the ground stopped after a few metres which was very disappointing.
In fact, more sixes (7) were hit on the day than fours (6)! Batting first, we managed to scratch up 90 from 44 overs. Josh Stanmore led the way with a solid 27, with Rob Jeffries and Ralph Nicholls also compiling solid innings’. In reply, Redfield required 49 overs to reach our total, losing 8 wickets in the process. The scoring rate emphasised how slow the outfield was.  Sam Rendall was miserly conceding just 3 runs off his 10 overs and Ralph Nicholls took 2 for 6 off 7. The bowlers performed quite well, although we still need to attack the stumps more consistently and forget the television nonsense about ‘hitting the top of off’ and ‘bowling a fourth stump line’ – simply keep the ball up and at the stumps! Our cause wasn’t helped by several dropped catches and on the batting side several of our top order were bowled – something that should never happen on a synthetic pitch. Next week we will be looking for a return to form against St Spyridon in our penultimate regular season fixture at Watson Oval.

Tennis

Last Saturday 9 February, the 2 Scots All Saints tennis teams faced off against each other in round 8 of the ISA competition. The Blue team won the senior division 6 sets to 0 with Chris McEwen and Harrison Cooke winning  7-1 against Matthew Wong and Ricky Chen. Sam Nugent and Brian Liang narrowly edged out Peter Wang and Scott Mawhood 5-3. The intermediate Blue team of Anson Biggs, Seton Bremner, Callum Duncan-Keen and Jake Mawhood played competitive matches against the Red team of Harley Goodman, Will Webb, Ben Bingley and Hugo Green. All were close encounters, with Will and Seton drawing their singles 4-4 but in the end it was convincing 36 games to 12 victory for the Blue team. The junior division was the tightest competition of the morning, with the Red team causing a major upset to narrowly edge out the Blue team by 2 games.  Jorja Hazell was dominant, winning her doubles with Liam Francis 7-1, and her singles match 8-0. Jo Morrison achieved a 6-2 win against Liam in their singles. In the doubles, Sarah Edwards and Sarah Mills from the Red team defeated Megan Cooke and Harrison Smith 6-2. Sarah Mills won her singles 8-0 while Sarah Edwards and Megan Cooke played a great match, resulting in a 4-4 draw.
