Boys’ Regional Kanga Cricket Finals
On Monday 16th November some Level 4 boys went to play in the regional finals of the School Cup. It was hosted at the Langwarrin Cricket Club.
All the boys did a really great effort in which we won one and lost two so that meant we didn’t get to the next round. We played three primary schools. The scores were for our first game was 135 – 133. We sadly lost by 2 runs! Our second game was 211 – 77 we lost but played well. And our very last game of the was 79 – 86 which we won! Everyone had an amazing game we all played so great!
Some of the highlights of the day were Logan and Sai’s great running between wickets, Tom and Alfie’s great batting pair and coordination, Oscar’s brilliant bowling, Andres’s encouragement, Jono and Ollie’s awesome bowling and keeping, Jaymie and Jack’s great communication when they were batting and finally all the boys fantastic team work.
I would also like to thank Mr Smethurst and the parents that helped for making all this possible and buying us a frozen drink on the way back to school.
