Friendly com­pe­ti­tion between two lo­cal schools

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

STU­DENTS at the tiny ru­ral school of Cordalba were in high spir­its when they hosted a friendly game of cricket between St Joseph’s Catholic and Cordalba pri­mary schools for sports day last Fri­day morn­ing.

The sup­port­ive stu­dents cheered from the side­lines, wait­ing not so pa­tiently for their turn at the stumps.

It was a great game by all play­ers, with the crick­eters fo­cussing on a win.

It was a tough de­ci­sion for the um­pir­ing staff to award the play­ers’ hard work.

Jesse Har­ney, from St Joseph’s, and Isa­iah McLaren-Gates, from Cordalba, were both awarded best and fairest. Both play­ers worked well with their teams and led the charge for a great game.

The home ground ad­van­tage did not help the team of Cordalba, who went down to St Joseph’s.

With a run to­tal of 185, St Joseph’s beat Cordalba by 43 runs.

Cordalba’s run to­tal im­pressed the um­pires, with a smash­ing 142 runs.

A re­match between the two fight­ing teams is set for Au­gust 26.

In other games, the schools mixed net­ball teams took to the new out­door and un­der­cover net­ball court in a friendly match between the two schools.

All the play­ers took to the court with plenty of courage and self con­fi­dence and were en­cour­aged by the cheers from the side­line cheer squad.

The tiny play­ers all per­formed well in the friendly game of net­ball and all play­ers are look­ing for­ward to a re­match later this month.
