Cricket exchange at Lindisfarne College

St Paul's Collegiate School —

The first XI and colts cricket teams travelled to Lindisfarne on 16 February.

The first XI cricket team played a three-day match against their Lindisfarne counterparts. On day one they won the toss and elected to bat first, starting off well with a lot of contributions coming from the top order. Cooper Robinson top-scored with 72, followed by Kuwyn Price with a handy 46. St Paul's pushed their total to 241/6, looking to declare in the morning session on day two.

The Colts cricketers played two one-day matches against Lindisfarne, with the first game St Paul's won the toss and chose to bowl first. We started well with Tom Yetsenga (1/20) and Will Voigt-Price (2/20). However, it was Kalen Lake that really showed form taking 4 wickets for 13 runs.

In reply, we started strong with Michael Robinson (29) and Lachie Parker (27). Will Bodle (25) and Max Makeham (28) performed well. St Paul's ended up winning the match, but lost a few wickets with only a few runs to pick up. Considering a long day of travel before play, it was a good win for the team. Final score was: Lindisfarne College 123/9 from 40 overs and St Paul's 127/5 from 26 overs.
