BH claims cricket

Broken Hill has regained the prestigious Geoff Goulding Memorial Shield in a thrilling climax to the cricket carnival held as part of the BH-Bankstown Sister City Exchange.
BH managed to reclaim the trophy during the penultimate clash of the four-day carnival when the local Year 8 team held on for a 23-run victory against the visitors.
Lachlan Harvey was the hero of the win, compiling an unbeaten half-century for the second time in three games and when BH took to the field he claimed 2/13 with the ball.
With solid support from James Hale and the all-round talents of Kobe Mutch, the Year 8 BH side secured their series, which helped the local contingent claim a 3-2 overall result.
Had Bankstown been able to chase down the total they would have squared the Year 8 series at one win apiece (their match yesterday was washed out) which would have resulted in the overall tally being square at two-all.
The result would have then been determined on total games won, with BH leading nine games to five.
In other matches yesterday BH completed a clean sweep of the Year 7 category with Michael Maalste and McKenzie Attard both registering unbeaten 50s in their 166-run thrashing.
In contrast, Bankstown continued their domination of the Years 10/11 section with a 76-run victory taking them to a 3-0 series whitewash.
Yesterday’s scores from day four:
Year 7: Broken Hill 7/229 (Michael Maalste 53 retired, Mackenzie Attard 50 ret, Rourke Turner 39, Isaac Cumming 21, Jarred Nicholls 20 not out; Blake Worsfold 2/36, Rhys Mutch 2/20) defeated Bankstown 63 (Dev Baweja 18, Kieran Armson-Graham 13; Jarred Nicholls 2/8, Riley White 2/4).
