Calrossy through to Cricket final
A wet pitch meant a delayed start to the semi final of the Interschool's Douglas Shield Cricket today in Tamworth.
Play got underway just after 11am, with the game restricted to 40 overs a side. St Phillips Christian College from Cessnock won the toss and sent the Calrossy First X1 into bat. Openers Jack Hamilton and Matt Holmes settled the home sides nerves withstanding the fast paced openers before they eventually drew the wicket with Matt Holmes out in a close LBW call.
Jack, Will Aitken and Sam Holmes went onto build the base of a great score. Jack stumped just shy of the half century at 47 and Will and Sam notched up 20 and 28 respectively.
Jock Smith and Doug Brissett brought home the innings, not out on 15 each, with some huge hitting over the boundary for Doug.
Calrossy went into the break 8/161.
In reply, St Phillips lost a few quick wickets before they dug in against the young Calrossy team. But the homeside brought it home in a close finish. Ryan Stewart with 4/17 off 8 overs; Tom Holmes 2/16 off five; Matt Holmes 3/10 off 3.3 overs.
Calrossy winners... with 19 runs to go and 6.3 overs to spare.
Congratulations to this young representative side which are now facing a long, but much appreciated, road trip west for the final this Friday, with their opponents yet to be decided.
It is the first time in 10 years Calrossy has made this final... and it was great to see some old boys on the side line in support! For those in the Calrossy community please check out our photo gallery on The Hub.
