State Final – KO Cricket

Opponent: Blackfriars Priory School

Location: Park 25 (Adelaide)

Faith 4/60 defeated Blackfriars 59

Copper Behn 19 n.o

Colby Noack 17

Will Loffler 6/15

Liam Birchard 2/9

Matt Quinn 1/13

After losing the toss and being thrown the ball the team set about restricting the scoring with some tight bowling. Some calm decision making in the field saw Riley McInerney make an early run out, with Nic Burton taking an excellent slips catch soon afterwards. From that moment onwards wickets fell at a steady rate. All bowlers played their part and were led by a fired up Will Loffler, who claimed 6 wickets for just 17 runs. Liam Birchard was also impressive with 2/9. The run chase got off to a shaky start, with both openers dismissed early, leaving the score at 2/4. Colby Noack and Cooper Behn then formed an excellent partnership to guide the team home, with Colby dismissed on 17 just shy of the winning runs and Cooper remaining unbeated on 19. A fantastic team effort by all involved. The team had a very strong batting and bowling line-up and it is a credit to all the students involved in the way that they patiently took on their role within the team (either batting, bowling or fielding) with all players making a contribution at some point across all 4 games. Thanks to all parents w
