Match Report
Scotch College Year 9A vs  Hale School, Perth
On: Friday, 14 Feb 2020
Venue: Away

Scotch bowled first and did a wonderful job. Hayden Henschel and Joshua Griffin opened the bowling and maintained a solid line and length. Joshua was rewarded with a wicket and first change bowlers Felix Japp and Nick Langsford continued the pressure and were both rewarded with a wicket. Charles McCarthy then entered the attack after drinks and in a wonderful four over spell he took 5 for 5 to place Hale under a huge amount of pressure. Some lofty hitting in the final overs saw Hale reach 100 at the end of their 30 overs.

Nick Langsford and Ross Whittome looked comfortable in the opening overs however from the fifth over a steady loss of wickets continually placed the Scotch side under pressure. In a very disappointing final result, Scotch only managed 60 runs. Hale bowled a tight line however the Scotch players struggled to rotate the strike or take advantage of the loose balls. This is something that we will have to work on at training before our next game in a couple of weeks.
