Match Report
Scotch College Year 8A vs  Wesley College
On: Friday, 15 Mar 2019
Venue: Away

On a softish pitch which kept low and made scoring in front of the wicket difficult Scotch bowlers were on top early and with Wesley at 9/45 an easy victory looked likely. However the last pair for the opposition mixed solid defence with some brave shots and restored some respectability to the score. All bowlers maintained a good line and length but the main wickets takers were Hugh Chapman (3), Nick Langsford (2) and Felix Japp (2). In reply the higher order batsmen found the going tough against their main bowlers and Scotch was in trouble at 5/25. However, Nick Langsford (32 not out) and Hayden Henschel (17), who possess the natural power to penetrate the ring field on a dead pitch, played sensibly to take Scotch home comfortably in the end. It was pleasing to see determination by all players, whether batting, bowling or fielding.
