eton win by 70 runs

Eton 218 (Sangha 58) Prince Alfred College 148 (Hobson 3-24)
On a flat pitch on the route of the former Adelaide Grand Prix Circuit, and against a school boasting the Chappell brothers and Greg Blewitt as old boys, Eton batted first in warm sunshine.  Sangha was the rock of the innings with a patient and secure 58 while Barber and Fitzroy (with his first six of the campaign a monster over long off) made rapid runs towards the end.  Tight bowling put the pressure on the opposition and wickets fell steadily as first Barber, then Sangha, then Hopton, then Hobson bowled tight lines before Clowes polished off the tail.  Vanderspar claimed three catches and a stumping in his first outing as wicket keeper.  A strong performance that will need to be repeated tomorrow against Rostrevor College, reputedly amongst the strongest on the Adelaide circuit.
