Wood's ton highlight of fine IGS win
IPSWICH Grammar School's 1st XI cricket team has continued in its good vein of form with a strong home ground win over Gregory Terrace.
Dropped catches early in the innings allowed Terrace to get off to a flyer, racing to 1/90 after 14 overs on Saturday.
Tight bowling and an improved effort in the field bought about a decline in the run rate and a steady flow of dismissals.
Gregory Terrace were bowled out for 221 in the 50th over.
After losing three early wickets, Noah van de Werken and captain Harry Wood steadied the ship with a solid partnership before van de Werken was dismissed for 39.
Wood continued to soldier on, looking more comfortable as his innings progressed on what was a very good wicket for batting.
On the back of Wood's composed innings and some handy late hitting from Lachlan Vellacott, Ipswich managed to reach the total of 221 with five wickets remaining.
The highlight was the innings of Wood who, when hitting the winning runs, bought up a well-deserved century.
The victory is the third of the season for the Ipswich Grammar School side.
This week, IGS will look to continue to their good form against Brisbane State School.
Another victory will have them well in contention for the 2016 GPS Cricket First XI Premiership.
Round 6 was successful for Ipswich Grammar School cricket, picking up five victories in A matches alone.
This was a fantastic result against a school the size of Gregory Terrace.
