Cricket notes

9/06/2016
Our School XI had an opportunity for another cricket match on the afternoon of June 3, when we hosted a match against Dalby State High.
Dalby batted first setting a reasonable target of 146 in 17 overs  to ultimately win the game. One of Dalby’s openers had a good day with the bat and was still at the crease at the end of the innings.

 

Our most effective bowlers on this occasion were Kurt Priebbenow who took 1 wicket for 15 runs, and Kieran O’Brien who took 2 wickets for 10 runs.
Kurt’s effort saw the off stump propelled off the pitch (pictured). Kieran was also quite impressive in his first match playing for the Oakey XI.
Most runs scored for Oakey were made by Kurt Priebbenow with 17 runs, and Hector Hilberto who made 16 runs.
The boys were rather unlucky in the field on this occasion, allowing several catching opportunities to slip through their fingers. However, all players enjoyed the break from normal school routine on the day, even though the game didn’t go their way on this occasion.
