DHS staff put one over the boys on the cricket field

2013-11-19 00:00

THE DHS staff maintained their supremacy on the cricket field when they beat the matrics by six runs in the fourth annual match.

Cricket was the overall winner on the day, the purpose of the game to build a relationship outside the classroom and just have a really great time.

It also allows the boys to catch a glimpse of the true talent of some of the teachers and coaches, proving their worth as astute batsmen and bowlers.

Originally, the fixture saw the staff play the DHS U14A side, then the U15A side followed by the U16A side. Then it was decided to take on the matrics as a farewell fixture and to thank them for their contribution while at the school.

Batting first, the staff compiled a respectable 190 with Barry Coskey contributing an undefeated 32 and Craig Wilkinson unbeaten on 30.

In reply, the boys came close to breaking the mould, finishing on 186. Best with the bat for the boys was Taylor Kelly-Stack (37*) and Ryan Killian (30*).
