Match Report
Scotch College 1st XI vs  Hale School, Perth
On: Saturday, 09 Feb 2019
Venue: at Home

Scotch took on Hale this past weekend in what proved to be a very good game of cricket. The match was in the balance for much of the game.Scotch lost the toss and were put into bat by the opposition.Hale bowled tightly and before Scotch knew it they were in a bit of trouble with 3 down for not many runs.Gale and Parker helped restore some of Scotchs' blushes with Gale playing well for his 71 and Parker his 66.Scotch managed a respectable 197.

Hales response was somewhat jittery and Scotch before long had them up against the ropes at 4 for 40.However, a good partnership enabled Hale to steady the ship and get to 5 for 100.Another fantastic partnership from Taylor and Sculthorpe ensured that Hale got home just after tea.Scotch felt that another wicket at any time could have really thrown a cat amongst the pigeons.However that breakthrough did not come and Hale secured a good 5 wicket win.
