ACC Cricket
Year 9 Cricket
The Year 9 cricket boys faced St. Bede’s at St. Bede’s (Mentone). They knew it was the last game of the season, and it was heartening to see everyone putting in their best effort. Salesian batted first, scoring 7/86 off 20 overs. St. Bede’s needed to chase down 86 runs in 20 overs and accomplished it in just 12 overs. The final scores were Salesian 7/86 off 20 overs, and St. Bede’s 1/87 off 12 overs. Well done, boys, on a great season, and we hope to see continued enthusiasm for cricket at the College.

Year 10 Cricket
The Year 10 cricket boys took on Whitefriars at Whitefriars cricket oval, knowing that a win was necessary to secure a home final for the following week. Playing Whitefriars at their home ground is always challenging due to the long bus trip, and Whitefriars students’ strong support. The boys performed well in their first innings, with Salesian scoring 6/143 off 20 overs. Whitefriars had to chase 144 runs in 20 overs and was restricted to 6/111 by Salesian’s solid fielding. Congratulations, boys and best of luck for next week.
