NSW State PSSA Cricket Carnival - Ballina

14th Mar 2023

Year 6 Guyra Central School student, Billy Ryan, competed at the State PSSA Cricket Carnival last week in Ballina.
Billy had a couple of great results and experiences for the week.
Day 1; against the top seeded team Sydney North, Billy opened the batting and held onto his wicket for 23 overs for 10 runs. The team batted out the 50 overs which is a great achievement against Sydney North. Result: North West scored 10/80, Sydney North 4/81.
Day 2; against North Coast, Billy took two catches. This was NW’s closest game of the carnival. Result: North West 10/112, North Coast 10/118
Day 3; against Sydney South West, Billy faced two very fast and swinging opening bowlers (bowled out for 0). Result: North West 10/61, Syd Sth West 8/138
Day 4; against Riverina, Billy scored 6 not out. North West 10/66, Riverina 4/67
Whilst North West did not get any wins for the week, the boys had many great learning experiences and had a fantastic time together as a team.
