Congratulations to the Boys 1st XI Cricket team who had a victory against Hillcrest High in their T20 Super Smash Semi-Final game today. Bowling first we restricted Hillcrest to 95/7. Pick of the bowlers was Fergus Lellman with 2 for 6 off his 4 overs. The team applied great pressure in field with their tight bowling and good fielding and achieved 3 Run Outs.
In reply Aquinas made the total in the 16th over with only 3 wickets down. Fergus Lellman and Finn Dempsey made a good start putting on 32 for the 1st wicket before both falling for 16 and 14 respectively. Carson Wills and George Catto then put on 45 for the 3rd wicket before Carson was run out for 20. George Catto and Louis Robinson finished off the solid batting with 25 not out (George) and 8 not out respectively.
The result means that the 1st XI are through to the final of the T20 Northern Districts College Super Smash.
The winner of this will progress to the NZ Finals tournament in term 4 as the representative from Northern Districts. The tournament will be between all the Major Association winners (e.g.Auckland, CD, Wellington, Canterbury and Otago).
