The cricket season is coming to an end with most teams having only four games and three training sessions to go. Please remember to let your coach know if you aren’t able to make a game.

Scots All Saints College 7 White vs RUCC Tim Paine
Lucas was Captain this week and we batted first, sending Kobe and Charlotte out to open the innings. They both batted well, adding plenty of runs to our tally. Lucas and Otto followed, showing increasing commitment and then Isaac and Sadie finished our batting strongly. After the break we were out on the field where Scots All Saints White played well as a team – chasing, passing and taking a few wickets. Our bowling line and length is improving every week. Isaac and Sadie both contributed to the wicket taking this week and our players were kept busy in the field with only four players spread around to chase the ball. Isaac received player of the match for his great batting and enthusiastic fielding. Thank you to the Smart family who provided fruit at the break. Don’t forget your hat, joggers and water bottle for our training sessions on the Junior School Oval each Wednesday afternoon. This Saturday 2 March we play St Pat’s Blue at The Scots Master Blaster Oval at 9:15 am. Please arrive early so we can start on time.

Scots All Saints College 7 Blue vs City Colts
Unfortunately, we had only 4 players this week but City Colts very generously allowed us to bat first and then lent us some of their players to fill in the gaps when we were fielding. I was so proud of our boys; they were excellent when batting, calling to their partner and hitting the ball very strongly to find the boundary on many occasions. Hayden and Alexander greatly enjoyed their time batting, loudly congratulating each other as they added to our run total. It was wonderful to watch the high fives and hear the team comradery at half time. Our bowling has improved immensely and many wickets were taken as the ball was delivered quickly and very accurately. Dylan and Rory are proving to be fine bowlers and will be a welcome addition to our Under 9 Team next season. Our player of the week was Dylan Monico. Next Saturday, Round 13, Scots All Saints College Blue play RUCC Tim Paine at Brooke Moore Park. Please be at the grounds by 9:00 am as games start at 9:15 am sharp.

Scots All Saints College 9s vs City Colts
Harrison was our Captain this week against City Colts on the Junior School Oval. The Colts chose to field first and our first batting pair, Alex and Louis, got us off to a great start! Next in were Jenson and Charlie who added nicely to our total, finding the boundary on many occasions. Georgie and Carter were our next partnership and kept our run-rate ticking over as did our final batter, Harrison. Wickets went to Alex, Jenson, Charlie and Harrison and all bowlers improved in accuracy. Thank you to Mr Hornery for umpiring and to Mr Leet for scoring. Our Player of the Match was Charlie Roohan for his great batting and consistency in bowling.

Scots All Saints College 10 White vs Lithgow
Scots All Saints White took on Lithgow at Stiles on Saturday. Lithgow were down a few players so a big thank you to Callum and William who helped them out so we could play 7 a side. Lithgow batted first making 3 for 117. Callum top scored for them with 24 and William made a handy 5. Jack was on song with the ball, taking 2 for 9 off his four overs. Jacob continued to improve and bowled accurately taking O for 11 off his three overs. Claire and Lucy also bowled with ever improving accuracy. In reply Scots All Saints White got their innings off to a great start with Timothy (25) and Toby (20) finding the boundary on several occasions while Lacey chipped in with a valuable 12 lower down the order. Wickets fell but Scots All Saints still managed to reach 8 for 120 at the end of their allotted time. Special mention must go to Callum who took 4 for 12 with his spin bowling. A great game by all!

Scots All Saints College 10 Blue vs RUCC
Scots All Saints Blue travelled to Raglan Public School to battle it out with Rugby Union Cricket Club on what turned out to be a beautiful Saturday morning. With just seven players and a vastly improved RUCC team facing us, our lads had to be on their toes throughout the entire match! Captain Leo won the toss and elected to bat first. Our openers got off to a cautious start with the RUCC bowlers making runs tough to come by however Leo, Andy and Danny grafted away and scored some great runs to swing the momentum our way. Bryce, Grayson and Oscar continued the run scoring with some boundary hitting taking the team to a very competitive total. Neel shone with some very good running between the wickets. The emphasis on fielding and accurate bowling at training during the week paid off as the lads put it into practice against RUCC. Neel was deadly accurate with his bowling and picked up a timely wicket. Grayson and Oscar each took difficult caught and bowled opportunities with the slap into Oscar’s hands reverberating around Raglan! They both ended the match with two wickets each. The lads fought well until the final ball and came away with another great victory. Yet again, great bowling and enthusiasm from Andy and Neel and a strong overall performance from Danny and Grayson emphasised the great mix of young gents this cricket team is building. Man of the match honours went to Grayson for his overall performance and top scoring with the bat with 22 runs. We are looking forward to a tough match up this Saturday against top of the table St Pat’s.

Last Saturday saw the Scots All Saints College touch football girls travel again to Kinross, this time to test their mettle against Barker College and the host school. In the opening round the Junior As met Kinross Wolaroi School Junior As in a tight and well matched encounter. Tries to Victoria Webb and Sophie Porter put SASC in the game but ultimately the girls were overcome 5-2. Our Senior Bs faced off against Barker College Senior Ds and were victorious 3-1 in a dominant performance with tries to Skye Frew (1) and Harriet Lowe (2). Our Junior Bs tackled the Kinross Junior Bs next and another stellar performance led to a comprehensive 4-1 win. Tries were shared between Harriet Lowe (2), Annabel Rennie (1) and Hannah Gill (1). The Senior As had the tough task of fronting up to a powerful Barker Senior A team. They managed a try to Rosie Webb but Barker was just too classy, winning 6-1.
The Scots All Saints College Senior Bs continued to be positive in their match against Barker Cs running in four tries (Natalie Mawhood 1, Harriet Lowe 2, Megan Davis 1) but Barker proved too strong scoring eight of their own. Eager to restore their pride, the Scots All Saints College Seniors As approached the Barker Bs with renewed determination. Their conviction paid dividends and they romped home with an 11-5 victory. Tries went to Lucy Roe (1), Gabby Boshier (1), Victoria Webb (1), Rosie Webb (2), Robyn Fernando-Gillon (1), Felicity Webb (1) and Sophie Hillsdon (4). The girls now await the final results to see who will travel to Penrith for finals this weekend.
