Saturday 26 October SASC Blue versus St Stanislaus College Blue. Ben Bingley was ‘Player of the match’. The Senior squad had a win. Ben and Bill McDonnell had a strong win in their doubles match. Intermediates had a loss but Megan Cooke put in a strong performance to win her singles match. Juniors also had a loss. Although, the doubles combination of Bohdi Hellyer and Sarah Edwards were able to win their match decisively before the rain set in bringing play to a halt. Each division also had a rain affected match but these would not have altered the final result. Better luck next weekend when we play St Stanislaus College at their home courts.

SASC 1st V/SASC Zero
The days are getting longer, hayfever is taking over from colds as a cause for runny noses and Basketball has returned for Scots All Saints College. The first game of our senior season was a Derby between the Girls Firsts and an all-new line up called Zero coached by the very experienced Mr Bailey. The sense of excitement at the start of the game was palpable as both teams lined up for jump ball. After a few moments of helter skelter as both teams settled their nerves it was the cooler heads that prevailed. Phoebe scored a couple of inside baskets for the Firsts, catching the Zeroes out of place defensively. Not to be intimidated, the Zeroes hit back in impressive style with a three pointer from Meg at the top of the key. Defences started to get into the right positions and good scoring opportunities dried up. It was left to Callie to sink a couple of outside shots to open up a lead for the Firsts heading towards half time. In the second half, the experienced players of the Firsts were able to bring the rest of the team into the action and the margin started to increase. The fitness of both teams was impressive and with plenty of players to rotate from both teams, the pace of the game never dropped off. Meg was her usual dynamic self in defence, grabbing a number of steals and moving the ball down the court. Callie maintain her accuracy from outside as the Zeroes struggled to find good scoring opportunities. Many players were still adjusting from the netball season and the closeness of the defence caused problems for both sides. Block of the day went to Jenna. The Zeroes scored a few more baskets in the fourth quarter on the back of some good passing and positional play. There was a lot to like about the energy and enthusiasm of both teams and a few take aways for training next week. First on the list will be finishing layups and then getting organised in defence. The final score was 45-13 with promises of closer margins in the future. Best player for Zeroes was Megan Redpath and for the Firsts was Callie Molkentin.
In what is largely the same team from last year, the SASC Mules have moved up a division to play in the 9/10 boys division this year. The first game of the season is always tough to get into the swing of things but the boys did a pretty good job of organising their defence and passing in offence. Speed in transition hurt us a lot and our opponents were able to score a number of easy baskets on transition. With strong rebounding by Christian and Toby we were able to limit the number of second shots and keep the score in check. Mitch and Tom were also doing a handy job of clogging up the key to limit easy shots. Akaal worked hard at both ends of the court, hassling in defence and working to find an open shot in offence. Sam was a steadying influence and in what was our play of the night threw a slick pass straight back to Brody who scored a lay-up in traffic. Brody was also dynamite in defence and managed to grab a few intercepts of his own. A commendable effort from the team as they worked all night to get close to the basket and continued to pass the ball around selflessly. Forming a stronger zone defence and working as a cohesive unit to deny easy shots is a key to improving our performance.

End game score: L: 69-10
Player of game- Isabella Taylor
The girls did really well for their first game of the competition. With only five players the girls had to put their best foot forward against one of the toughest teams in the comp. players Isabella and Bella proved their aggression bringing the ball up the court confidently, as well as their defensive skills up against the opposition right under the key. Denying many opportunities at a basket. Zoe and Hannah had many shots on goal and Hannah gained confidence throughout the game in taking the ball right under the hoop for some baskets. Bridget displayed excellent positioning throughout the game and set up many key attacks at basket. Despite the score the girls played really well under the conditions and played incredibly well as a team.

Player of game: Amy Thorne
End score: W: 22-19
With a late start the girls were behind 19 points before the game started with minimal time to repair the damage. They rose to the occasion with Amy and jesse fearlessly defending and taking the ball right under the hoop. Basketball newbie Sammy also had a contribution to the scoreboard as did Jess. Nyah read the play exceptionally and was able to shut down the oppositions attack early for Eliza to get several shots in the key. The girls came up 22-19 and show great enthusiasm and promise for future rounds!

The Scots All Saints Emeralds played against the Cool Truckers in their first basketball game of the season. Although the opposition came away with the win, our players demonstrated fantastic potential. They played well as a team and we identified some things we need to work on at training to develop our skills. Well done Emeralds.
Year 3 Diamonds
On Wednesday the 21st the Year 3 Diamonds Basketball team played a very exciting game. It was great to see how much the team had improved with a training session to practice. We held the other team off well and the second half belonged to SASC. Polly threw two successful baskets and diamonds their first points on the board. The final score was 8/2 the other teams way. I am impressed with the teams enthusiasm to learn and not give up when the going gets tough. With more practice, teamwork and knowledge of the game, the only way is up for the Diamonds.

The 15s cricket team played against Stannies Maroon at Morse Park 2 on Saturday morning. The overnight rain had little impact on the covered turf wicket and play commenced on time. Stannies won the toss and elected to bowl. Batting was extremely difficult as the ball was hooping both ways, the bounce was invariable and the pitch was spitting the ball both into and away from the batsmen. Our boys did very well in defence and built confidence as they got their eye it. Louis (8), Zane (12) and Noah (27 no) coped best with the rain delayed innings and helped the team to a score of 4 for 70 from 19 overs. In reply Stannies also found the new ball a challenge. Zane bowled well and took the 2 wickets (2 for 13), James and Lachlan also bowled accurately and efficiently. The more mature Stannies team were 2 for 32 from 9 overs before the rain again interrupted play and eventually caused an end to play. The boys are to be commended on playing bravely and supporting one and other with both the bat, the ball and in the field. We have a great nucleus of a team and plenty of potential for even more improvement.

SASC once again won the toss and elected to bat. The pitch was wet and outfield slow but the bowling would be difficult for Stannies with a wet ball and slippery conditions. Charlie Rendall started well but overhit one of his shots to mid-off to be caught early. Jack Graf batted well as did Patrick Anderson though they struggled to score with a slow outfield. Ben Lloyd showed promise with his batting as did Campbell Denyer who hit a few big fours. Alex Morrisey played across the line to be out cheaply and Paterson Abel managed to bat to some pace before losing his wicket. Tim Anderson, Jack Graf and Seth Wilson took to the late bowling with some big hits to get SASC to 9/106 at the end of their 25 overs. It was a small total but in these conditions, likely enough, as Tim Anderson and Ben Lloyd bowled well with Tim gaining an early wicket. Patrick Anderson took over from Ben’s end and bowled brilliantly to get two more wickets but by then the rain had ceased to be a sprinkle and set in with a proper downpour. It was decided to abandon the match at that point with Stannies on 3/53 after 10 overs. We will wait for the BDCJA to determine if there is a result from this match.
The U11s match on Saturday was washed out after about 45 minutes of play. However Nicholas Goddard took a wicket (bowled) and Johnathan Price took two wickets one after the other – catching the batsman out on the last ball of the over and bowling the next batsman on the first ball of the next over. Jonathan was player of the match.
The SASC Under 10s took on Lithgow at Learmonth on a wet Saturday morning. Intermittent showers plagued the Lithgow innings but we persevered given the distance our opposition had travelled. Iggy Knight was the pick of the SASC bowlers picking up 3-7 off his two overs whilst Charlie and Ben also bowled well keeping wides to a minimum. SASC restricted Lithgow to 73 from their 20 overs. In reply, there was a lot on offer for the SASC batters to hit with balls skidding or being well wide of the wicket. Jenson and Mason both made 5 each and Kobe scored his first runs of the season. Alex and Jenson did a solid job behind the stumps. The boys are developing their judge of a run as they cope with the added weight of their new equipment but they’re getting the hang of it quickly. They’re also learning the importance of bowling accurately and not giving away easy runs in the form of wides. In the end we well just shy of Lithgow’s 73 but we’ll be better and stronger for our next game as a result. Well done boys! Thank you to all our parents for sitting through the rain and wind to support your child.

This week our team went up against St Pats. Today our captain for the game was Bill. He won the bat flip and decided to have a bowl. Bowling first the kids were extremely tight with the line and length and did not give much away at the start. There was an exciting moment when Isaac manages to get himself on a hattrick. The energy was high, and when their second pair was out batting, we look strong taking some wickets. Unfortunately, we had some fielding errors that begin the leak runs towards the end of the innings. Now it was time for us to bat. The kids running between the wicket this week was the highlight with all contributing with excellent, confident calls that help us reach our total. Although with their effort we could not get the large total St Pats had acquired, and this meant we had lost the game. I look forward to seeing how the kids improve next Friday again.
Under 7s Junior Blasters
The U7s Junior Blasters team had a fantastic first fame of their season, getting a good win against St Pats. The boys had a terrific start to the season and are improving overall really well as a team. All six of the boys played a fantastic game taking several wickets and working well with the bat, bringing home a fantastic win.
