IGS toil earns reward

IPSWICH Grammar School's first XI collected a double bonus point in their latest convincing cricket win over Churchie at East Brisbane.

Churchie won the toss in the round two match on Saturday and elected to bat in excellent conditions.

Churchie's opening partnership fought through the early IGS attack to be 0/46 after 14 overs.

The IGS attack persisted with the plan and remained patient.

The first breakthrough from Brayden Hilton brought with it two more wickets to have Churchie 3/53 after the first drinks break.

The bowling partnership of Sula Fernando and Lachlan Vellacott, in combination with excellent fielding and catching, saw continual wickets fall.

Churchie was left reeling at 7/80.

IGS finished the Churchie innings quickly all out for 91 in the 41st over.

Excellent bowling performances all round included: Jarrod Darrach 7 overs 0/23, Brodie Nickson 7 overs 1/14, Damien Brandley 6.2 overs 2/8, Brayden Hilton 5 overs 2/16, Sula Fernando 10 overs 3/15, Lachlan Vellacott 6 overs 1/11.

IGS had to bat before lunch and again started positively before unluckily losing Ben Maynard to be 1/39 at lunch.

Noah Van de Werken and Harry Wood remained positive after lunch putting on 42 before the loss of Noah for 34 saw IGS 2/68 after 20 overs.

Sula Fernando joined Harry at the crease and they quickly passed the Churchie total in the 25th over achieving a double bonus point.

Harry finished unbeaten on 28 with Sula on four.

A comprehensive performance sees IGS travel up the range to take on Downlands College in what is their GPS bye round.
