Solid start to campaign

The Maclean High School open boys’ cricket team had a comfortable win against Alstonville High in the Alan Davidson Shield.

Alstonville High won the toss and elected to bat. A great bowling performance saw consistent wickets fall as Alstonville stumbled to a humble total of 112 runs.

Will McGrath-Moran was the pick of the bowlers bagging 5 for 7 and Alby Popko offered great support with figures of 2 for 9.

Maclean High looked in total control throughout the run chase, reaching Alstonville High’s total after just 22 overs and with 7 wickets in hand. Sean McFarlane (36) and Colby Vallette (29) did most of the damage leaving little runs for the rest of their team to chase.

The team would like to send a special thank you to Tracey Johnson for her amazing effort in organising and donating the playing shirts.
