Cal Stewart makes low-key debut as Marcellin goes down to Auckland

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.
