Some great cricket news for our school community...the Combined Twizel/Temuka Colts squad has qualified for the finals!!

Our combined squad was made up of 5 Twizel Cricket club members:

  • 3 TAS students: 
    • James McDonald
    • Jack McLellan
    • Luca Stewart (ex TAS)
  • 2 Mackenzie college students and 5 Temuka cricket club members have played an exceptional game against Celtic. 

Celtic were top of the table and in the knockout round it meant the 4th seed (Twizel/Temuka) played the 1st seed (Celtic). We bowled first and with some exceptional bowling we got them all out for 32 runs. Lachlan Fisher of Temuka got 4 wickets for just 4 runs off 4 overs. James took a great catch behind the wickets and they never looked confident with Jack’s pace only allowing them 7 runs off 4 overs. 

Then we went in to bat. They also had an exceptional bowling attack on a very tricky pitch.  We reached their total in 16 overs with only 4 down. Meaning that the Twizel Temuka Colts now make the finals against a very strong Waimate crew on the 18th of December. Can the underdogs win???
