Old Collegian player Callan Stewart made his carnival debut for the First XI against Sacred Heart Auckland. Unfortunately for Callan and the rest of the team, it was not a great day as Auckland thoroughly outplayed Marcellin for a comfortable 5 wicket win. Marcellin is co-leader with a 2-1 record. Batting first on a good batting deck, Marcellin’s batters struggled to get any momentum and made a below-par 176 in their 50 overs. Andrew Dallimore was once again a prominent player, hitting a breezy 38 from 42 balls (a six had to be retrieved from a neighbouring garden). Callan did not get to bat. In reply, the Auckland top order survived some healthy LBW shouts and an early run out to chase down the total with 4 overs to spare. Call got to bowl one over! Saturday is the rest day with a big game against the local team on the Queen Elizabeth Oval on Sunday.
