Cricket: Round 6 wrap v Brisbane State High School
Dear Cricket Community,
Our much anticipated round 6 clash with Brisbane State High School returned 12 wins and 5 losses which included some mixed performances. Our Year 10 and Year 11 sides were undefeated against BSHS, while our younger grades were outplayed by State High’s extremely strong and undefeated 7A, 7B and 8A sides. Unfortunately after a clinical day out against NC 7 days prior, the 1st XI lost by 5 wickets in what was a disappointing performance.
There were some outstanding individual returns across the board in round 6. Congratulations to Oliver Lamble (8D) for his Player of the round performance against State High.
Individual achievements (50s and 4 wickets or more) include the following:
Lachlan Smith (2nd XI) – 75 runs off 96 balls
Luke Litzow (11A) – 52 runs off 40 balls
Archie Steele (11A) – 67 not out off 53 balls
Liam Matherson (11C) – 56 not out off 37 balls
Nick Cave (11C) – 53 not out off 29 balls
Harrison Hepner (10B) – 4 for 6 off 3 overs
Rex Tooley (9A) – 60 not out off 85 balls
Charlie Ploetz (9B) – 58 off 71 balls
Charles Rogers (8B) – 55 off 71 balls
Sam McGrath (8B) – 4 for 9 off 6 overs
Reuben Hoare (8C) – 54 not out off 27 balls
Harry Johnston (8C) – 54 off 27 balls
Oliver Lamble (8D) – 52 not out off 33 balls and 3 for 4 off 3 overs – Player of the round
Harry Newnham (8D) – 52 not out off 21 balls

The challenge for our batsmen is on – in 2018 we had 4 boys score 200 or more runs – with 3 rounds remaining we already have 3 boys who have reached that milestone (Oates – 261, Ploetz – 248, Ryan – 201). Can anyone else crack 200 runs for the season?
For the bowlers, Sam McGrath (8B) is leading the way with 12 wickets. There are a handful of bowlers breathing down his neck (Murray – 9, Brameld, Samarawickrama, Callachor, W Kruger, Potter, McLeish, McRae – 8). Can anyone catch Sam?
Currently, we have won 61% of GPS matches this year which is an improvement on our 2018 results (50%).
With 3 rounds remaining, I challenge our TGS sides to lift another level in a bid to finish the season strongly.
I wish all boys and coaches the best of luck against Brisbane Boys’ College this Saturday.
Yours in Cricket,
