Cricket Update

Our combined cricket team achieved very well on Monday.  First we played Huntly private school from Wanganui.  They batted first and made 85 in their 20 overs in reply the combined team chased down the runs with 1 over to spare and 5 wickets in hand.  This meant we next had to play Hereworth private school from the Hawkes Bay.  This was always going to be a very challenging game as in their previous game against Palmerston North Intermediate, they had made 153 for 1 and bowled them out for 60.  We batted first and were bowled out on the last ball for 74.  In reply Hereworth scored the runs in the 16th over for 3 wickets down.  This is a great effort for the children and means that the Auroa Combined team are the runners up for the Central Districts Active Post Cup.  Congratulations to all children who played on the day.
