The Crusaders ventured to Melbourne High School for their second school game for 2018/19. A brilliantly prepared field and luncheon was provided by MHS. Batting first the Crusaders started their innings rapidly, with Lachie Bangs dispatching the bowling in a well made 33 ret. The fall of two quick wickets enabled the Crusaders to progress along to 2/127 at drinks. Mcilveen(27ret) ,Clark(21ret), Hancock (20ret) and Faria (25ret) enabled the Crusaders to get to 187 before declaring in the 32nd Over. In response MHS put up a brilliant chase, getting within 9 runs at the end of their innings. 2/17 to Ethan Hobson and 4/44 to Katarey were the pick of the Crusaders bowlers. A massive thank you to all the boys that gave up their Wednesday to play and to Melbourne High for putting on a brilliant day. Good luck to MHS in preparation for their Five Highs Tournament in Adelaide this December.
