ISA Representative Cricket Match Report
ISA v ASC (Associated Southern Colleges)
Sunday February 28, 2021
The beautiful setting of Bradman Oval in Bowral played host to this match. After a close loss to Combined Associated Schools (CAS) the previous Sunday, the ISA team was determined to improve.
Having lost the toss, ISA were in the field first. Against some aggressive batting from the opposition, opening bowlers, Liam Chang (2-20) and Angus Parsons (2-15), bowled with pace and control to take four wickets with the score on just 27 after their spell. Finn Gray (3-25) continued this fine work with seven consecutive overs that prevented the Canberra boys’ middle order from a decent recovery. Spinners Ethan Muller (2-19) and Liam Kinna (1-9) finished the job for the ISA team who dismissed the opposition for 105 in the 32nd over. Wicket keeper, Alex del Popolo, took three catches and completed two stumpings in a very impressive display with the gloves.
With 40 minutes to bat before lunch, Joe Colgan (29) played aggressively and hit two sixes, while Tom Siede (14) was very steady as the other opener. Matt Hurst (24) hit the ball cleanly in partnership with Hayden McDonald (16 not out) as the total was reached five wickets down in just the 28th over.
Thanks to the parents and families of the boys for their support and to the Bradman Trust for being tremendous hosts. The ISA team and staff were very appreciative of the Canberra team (ASC) organising the live stream and scoring for those who were not at the ground.
