Congratulations to our SSSA Open Girls Cricket team who won the State Championship today.
Earlier in the day, the team took on Scotch College in the semi-final, where Captain Keely Stone led the way with an exceptional 112 not out. Continuing her fine form with the bat in the competition totalling 273 runs without getting out. A wonderful leader who has had an amazing season of cricket.
Our bowlers did an exceptional job by keeping Scotch to 9/93 at the end of the 20 overs, falling short of the 153 needed.
In the Grand Final, Woodcroft College and Trinity College wrote another chapter in their esteemed cricket rivalry.
We batted first and got off to a slow start losing some early wickets. A positive partnership between Keely Stone and Ella Gill added some valuable runs on the board. We batted out our 20 overs for 84.
Starting their innings strongly, Trinity looked comfortable at the crease as they hunted our 84.
With the game on a knife’s edge at 4/62, young guns Savanah Rayner, Ella Gill and Georgie Wooller stepped up and proved to be heroes. Georgie bowled economically and finished with 2/3 from her 4 overs, while Savanah went through Trinity’s batters and finished with 4/7. Bowling out Trinity’s last batters in the penultimate over, to give Woodcroft the win by 9 runs.
An amazing team effort from the girls who were able to come together and put a real team performance together in the final.
