Match #1 of the 2016 knock-out cricket season for StPatsTech was against Thomas More College today with very hot conditions prevailing.
StPatsTech were in the field first and we were able to get a break through in the second over with William Earle dismissing one of their openers for a duck. Thomas More then took the initiative with two partnerships taking their score to 3 for 99. They were finally dismissed for 157 from 35 overs. Anthony Langhorn and Jack Hamilton were the best of the Fighting Irish bowlers with 2 wickets each
Unfortunately our batting performance was poor and we were only able to manage 75 runs. William Earle provided some resistance with a very well compiled 41 and was the shining light in a very disappointing batting display by the rest of the team.
Thomas More proved to be the better team on the day.
Thomas More 157 def. StPatsTech 75
