Outstanding result at the War Memorial Oval today with our cricketers claiming the title for the first time in 8 years. It was a thrilling finish this morning with skipper Dominic Hughes-Churchett stepping up when it mattered to claim the last 2 wickets in consecutive balls to give us a valuable first innings lead. Dom’s 5/16 helped dismiss Scotch for 103 in reply to our 115 in a very tense morning session.
We then batted beautifully in the afternoon racking up 5/209 with half centuries to Caleb Oakes (73) and Caedence Kuepper (51). Congratulations to coach Mark Divin and all the boys, a fantastic result!
In more great news for Hutchins cricket, the 2nds also won the state flag up north today. Our boys made 8/129 and restricted Grammar to 9/92 off their 45 overs to claim our second consecutive 2nd XI premiership!
