A Big Week of Cricket! Franklin Rowing Report
SVC 1st XI Lose Saunders-Di Venuto Shield
After eight successive wins the 1st XI lost the coveted trophy last Friday at Hutchins. Poor early fielding and bowling enabled the Hutchins batters to get away to a flying start before good bowling from Jacob Goodsell and James Wilson restricted Hutchins to 9-163.
Our innings started slowly and the loss of wickets at regular intervals made the chase very difficult and ultimately beyond our grasp with SVC eventually being dismissed for 138.
Pick of the batsman were Captain Will Sartori 46, Jacob Blackwell 21 and Jacob Goodsell 20.
SATIS T20 Tournament
The 1st XI travelled to Launceston on Sunday evening in preparation for the their defence of the T20 crown won last year. We made a great start on Day 1 winning both games but were eventually undone by eventual premier GYC, a team featuring seven of our premiership players from last season!
Oliver Kelly was Player of the Tournament for SVC with his power hitting dispatching unsuspecting bowlers to all parts of the ground.

Franklin Rowing Regatta
Well done to all of our SVC rowers who competed at the Southern Junior Sculling Regatta at Franklin last Saturday. It was great to see a sea of blue, with 50 SVC junior rowers taking to the water. The rowing program has been growing exponentially over the past two seasons and St Virgil's now has one of the largest and most competitive junior squads in the state. The boys showed they will be a force to reckon with this season achieving a host of promising results. The boys also competed admirably at State Pennant 5 and the Northern Junior Sculling Regatta in weeks prior. Our rowers will now look forward to a three week break over the moratorium before racing continues in January 2021.
