The 37th Annual Marist carnival wound up in style with a presentation and dinner at the Foundry function centre in Bendigo. For Marcellin, the carnival was an outstanding success; Marcellin finishing runners up and having two players picked in the Marist XI – Trent Williams for his batting and Nick Biscontin as the bowler of the carnival. Marcellin was well aided in their cause with the support of families and friends who visited the team at various times during the carnival.

Marcellin runners-up in 37th Marist Carnival

Marcellin and St John’s Woodlawn played out a terrific grand-final at Golden Square in Bendigo on Monday. Unfortunately for Marcellin, St John’s proved too strong, prevailing by 19 runs. Batting first on a flat deck, the hard-hitting St John’s threatened to take the game completely away from Marcellin; at one stage being 3-160 off 34 overs. However, as has been Marcellin’s trademark during the carnival, the bowlers fought back taking 7-30 in the next ten overs, leaving Marcellin a gettable 190. Marcellin’s reply was positive, posting a 55 opening partnership. Some tight bowling and loss of wickets at inopportune times saw St John’s get on top. With the wicket now crumbling and keeping low, Marcellin found it difficult to pick off some cheap runs as the St John’s boys bowled a disciplined line and length. Trent Williams was once again a star making 68 and giving Marcellin a bit of chance in the last ten overs. Andrew Dallimore picked up 3 more wickets in the morning session.
