Tuesday afternoon, 8 February 2022 was certainly one to remember for St Charles College cricket as the first XI, second XI and U16A teams all recorded T20 wins from the three T20 matches against visitors Hilton College.
The fixtures were arranged to at least get in some cricket between the schools after the past Saturday’s rain prevented a single ball being bowled in those scheduled fixtures.
These totals etc. are according to the Hilton stats.
In the first XI T20 match on the Saints Oval yesterday, St Charles firsts scored 125 for 6 wickets in their 20 overs, to which Hilton replied with 123 for 9, which left St Charles the winners by 2 runs. Can’t-sit-still moments at the end.

In the previous four completed matches between the two schools’ first XIs the Hilton teams of the era had won three and lost one.
In the second XI T20 match on Colts field, St Charles seconds compiled 114 in their 20 overs, to which Hilton replied with 80, giving St Charles the win by 34 runs.
In the previous two completed matches at second XI level, Hilton had won both, by 69 runs and 6 wickets respectively, so a feather in the cap of Saints seconds.
In the U16A match, Hilton made 107 for 7 in their 20 overs, and St Charles responded successfully to reach 108 for 4 and thereby a 6-wicket victory.
Access to previous results at U16A level were not available at the time of writing.
