ACC Sporting Results — Term 1 Week 3

FIRST XI CRICKET

DLS 6134 from 35 overs Defeated Whitefriars 114 from 33 overs
Best Players: Sam Anderson 49, Miles Fabris 36, Louis Holmes 421

Sent in to bat by Whitefriars, we were under pressure to be 2 for 21 after only 7 overs. We were rescued by a courageous partnership between Sam Anderson(49) and Miles Fabris (36); a partnership of 71 runs off 23 overs.

Another partnership (real quickfire) of 30 runs by Sam and James Howard (15) off 3 overs, gave us our winning total of 134.

Whitefriars were “cruising” to be 2 for 79 after 20 overs, and well in control of the match.

However, a “never say die” attitude by our bowlers, Louis Holmes (4/21) and Justin Hall (3/20), supported with catches by Will Agar, Charlie Haley, Miles Fabris, Lachlan Hay and Tom Keys, saw Whitefriars lose their next 8 wickets for 35 runs, — to be bundled out for 114.

Will Agar’s catch in the slips was a real gem; the type of catch which inspires a team to greater heights.

Sam Anderson was awarded the Baggy Blue. He was in the field for almost the entire match, coming in to bat at over 5, patiently facing 30 balls before scoring his first run; then taming the Whitefriars bowlers, before losing his wicket in the penultimate over, — going for quick runs. He also chipped in with a 6 over bowling spell to take 120.
