Year 7/8 Interschool Cricket

On the 6th of March, the three Year 7 and 8 Cricket Teams travelled to Epping to play interschool Cricket. We played four games for the day.

At the start of the day in the first match Wallan C played against Wallan B. We had a good game and there was very friendly sportsmanship between each team.
Parneet Kaur and I made 21 runs. Parneet led our team, assisting and demonstrating for students skills and rules throughout the day.
Kaiden Broomfield was keeper and also bowled two people out as a very good bowler, who was giving positive feedback to everyone.
Riley Cook from Wallan B gave our Wallan C team some very good advice, as he batted well throughout the day and took several wickets.
Dana Bartolo also took a good catch in the field.

In the second game Wallan C played against Wallan A. Wallan C got a few runs but were beaten that round and we all had a good laugh about it.
Then our Wallan C team played Whittlesea.

Wallan C batted first and Joey Libreri hit a 6, while in the field Tayla Cusack caught a ball and got a Whittlesea batter out.
Wallan C then versed another school in the last round and by then we were exhausted and puffed out but Chloe Datson took a good catch and we all ran in to give her high 5.

It was then our turn to bat.

Parneet Kaur and I were first to bat. I hit a 6 and Parneet hit a 4.
Kaiden Broomfield hit a 6 and Taylor Cusack hit a 4.
We tried hard but lost the game.
The Wallan A team was mostly made up of Year 8's, however in the first game Mason Bowden of Year 7 was keeper and then bowled the last over, to record a 2 wicket maiden.
Another Year 7 in the Wallan A team, Jacob Langbourne, showed some great keeping in the next match taking a great diving catch and another dive to save a certain boundary.
In the Wallan B team Eddie Tuia took a HAT-TRICK against Whittlesea, with what was describe by Eddie as a catch that 'saved the other batman's life.'
Riley and Jackson Thomas showed great leadership throughout the day, bringing the team into huddles before and during the game using lots of positive talk. Jackson added to this by hitting 2 sixes in a row in one of the games.
All students represented the school well and enjoyed themselves.
