Match Report
Scotch College 2nd XI vs  Wesley College
On: Saturday, 19 Oct 2019
Venue: at Home

The second eleven scored a resounding victory over Wesley.

After losing the toss our bowlers dismantled the opposition to have them all out for 52. Captain Hugh Plowman handled the bowlers and fielders expertly.

Our ground fielding was excellent with the opposition only scoring 5 singles for the innings.

The pace bowlers all contributed. Opening bowler Max Bailey set the tone with an accurate opening spell, as well as taking 2 wickets. Jack Beazley also finished with 2 wickets.

The highlight was a 4 wicket maiden over by Xander Aakerman , including a hat trick. He finished with the incredible figures of 6 for 2.

I was very pleased with our openers- Richard Walton and Ben Chapman - who professionally took us past the Wesley total without loss.

We continued to bat on for another 13 overs and Ned Gaffey smashed a rapid 50.

An excellent start by the team, but tougher games to come.
