Some of the Julius boys came up against a very tough Flower’s house
side in their first round of house cricket. We only had 3 cricket
players in the team but the big boarders all played cricket, so we
knew it would be a grind. However, the lads stepped up to the
challenge and Julius set an impressive total of 157 runs in their 15
overs when Flower’s put them into bat. In this innings, George Coull
scored a stunning 112 not out, with good support from Simon Brown, who
made 24 and Josh Wheelans who made 18. Julius followed this up with a
stellar effort in the field, taking some beautiful catches and Josh
Wheelans taking 3 wickets in 1 over. Unfortunately Flower’s house
batting attack proved too strong and the boarders chased down the runs
in the last over. Awesome effort from everyone involved though, coming
this close to beating Flower’s is no mean feat. We’ll take out the
whole competition next year instead.
