Year 7/8 Cricket team Vs Caloundra City Private

  • June 5, 2013
Eleven players from Year 7 and 8 demonstrated great sportsmanship as they had a solid win against Caloundra City Private held at GCCC last week. GCCC lost the toss and were sent into the field where all players were enthusiastic to get their hands on the ball. Each player had a bowl (except for ace wicket keeper Shane Charlesworth) with good success, restricting CCP to 6-82 after 20 overs. The two standout performers with the red ball were Jack Brander and Callum Marshall.

GCCC got off to a very solid and fast start to their run chase thanks to the outstanding efforts of Matthew Koschel and Shane Charlesworth. Both players retired after making 25 runs each. As CCP were down a player in the field, GCCC lent a hand and volunteered to fill in. It was quite funny to see the reaction of Callum Marshall after he was caught by his own teammate Joshua Stead with what was a classic catch diving low. It was also wonderful to witness the CCP players run up to Josh and give him a few high fives – great cricket all round! GCCC easily ran down the runs, finishing their 20 overs with 3 – 102. All players are keen to improve their skills and play another game very soon.
