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

This week’s game against Hale School proved to be a more difficult encounter for two main reasons. Firstly, the very warm weather seems to affect the enthusiasm of the playing group and secondly, we found wickets hard to come by, managing to take 3/122 from the allotted 20 overs. Hale’s first 3 batsmen each retired meaning we were only able to take wickets when the score was 73, 101 and 117. Fin Wright proved to be our premier fielder behind the stumped taking 2 nice catches. Joshua Cahill, Oscar Petersen and Alex Pigneguy were the pick of our bowlers this week with nice displays of line and length bowling. Our turn batting didn’t start too well as we lost 2 wickets in the first over. However, Angus Motherwell, tried hard to save the day with a solid innings before retiring and then coming back out near the end of innings to finish with 27. Finn Wright batted very well for 27 as well. However, we fell short reaching 8/96 in reply.
