Rixon Cup Cricket Report

On Wednesday February 4 our Senior Boys traveled to Culcairn to play cricket representing Xavier in the Rixon Cup. The match was against Billabong High and was the last round game before the finals. The day was a huge success with our boys bringing home a win. In our score of 201, batsmen Ben Baker (60), Isaac Hawkins (40), Jack Scammell (18) and Rhys Llewelyn (14) excelled in the 30 over innings to post an imposing total.

Billabong got off to a great start being 1 for 92 off 14 before Ben Lloyd and Liam Williams tightened the scoring up with some inspired bowling. A great fielding display across the board was also instrumental in setting up the win.

As a result of this win, the Rixon Cup side finishes on top of their pool. They will play Murray High School in the semi-final with the hope of defending the Rixon Cup title.
