ROCHESTER Pri­mary School’s boys cricket team have qual­i­fied for the re­gional fi­nals af­ter win­ning last week’s district tour­na­ment.

Grade five and six stu­dents from around the district trav­elled to the Rochester Recre­ation Re­serve last week to com­pete.

Rochester took four cricket teams over for the day — two boys’ teams and two girls’ teams.

The girls’ team (Rochester One) had an ex­cel­lent start win­ning its first two games but wasn’t so lucky in the last game against last year’s win­ner Ton­gala.

The girls made it to the fi­nal but came up against Ton­gala again and had an un­for­tu­nate loss.

Giselle Craw­ford and Kait­lyn Joyce showed they might be crick­et­ing stars of the fu­ture with stand­out per­for­mances.

The other girls’ team (Rochester Two) had a great day even though it only won one game and lost two.

Over­all the girls had a great time es­pe­cially when it came to the dance off.

The other boys’ team (Rochester Two) also had a good day and they won two games and lost two games.

The boys’ team (Rochester One) had an awe­some day and came home with the win.

It won two games but lost one, but in the fi­nal came up against Ton­gala — the team it lost to in the first game.

With some hard hit­ting from Josh Mur­ray and Har­ri­son Foster, great bowl­ing from De­clan Pearse and Nate Ras­mussen and an even con­tri­bu­tion from Blake Roul­ston, Mack Matthews, Reed Hock­ing and Kody Lees, the boys ended up win­ning the fi­nal by 29 runs.

The team has now qual­i­fied for the re­gional fi­nals in Shepparton, which is a bril­liant ef­fort.

Over­all ev­ery­one had an awe­some day.

Rochester Pri­mary school was lucky enough to have five ter­rific coaches from the Rco­hester Sec­ondary Col­lege — Bro­den, Kyle, Fraser, Brad and Sarah coached the teams through­out the day and did a sen­sa­tional job.
