Super 8's

McKinnon Secondary College’s Year 7 boys qualified for the Super 8 cricket regional competition after winning both of our matches in the Kingston division competition last week. The regional competition was held on Wednesday the 16th of November at Sweeney Reserve, Narre Warren.

We went into the regional competition confident that we were in good form with all of our players contributing to the team’s recent success with both bat and ball and in the field.

Our first match was played against Lilydale and after sending them into bat they scored a defendable 121 runs. McKinnon narrowly won by scoring 124 in our innings.

The next match against University High was a comfortable win for McKinnon. We won our final round robin against Lavalla by a margin of 50 runs.

Our three wins resulted in our team qualifying for the grand final which was played against Koo Wee Rup. We played well with some excellent fielding and defensive bowling and we were the winners by 15 runs.

McKinnon has now qualified for the state finals on Wednesday the 30th of November which we are looking forward to as we get a chance to play on the MCG.
