Jack Goodsell (63) and Bailey Brien (68) hit a season opening wicket record for any club, 134, to lay the foundation for the school’s big score of 315.

Chevalier’s middle and tail order capitulated under the weight of a strong Stannies bowling attack, falling from 4-110 to all out just 13 runs later.

Ben Mitchell and Lachlan Yates each hit 46.

In reply Chevalier were rolled for just 123 runs.

Mitchell, still fresh off his innings of 169 a week earlier, backed up with a big performance with the ball.

He took 4-31 from his 10 overs while Brien (2-9) and Martin Rudgely (2-17) were the other multiple wicket takers.

Stannies travel to face St Pius X in Saturday’s penultimate round before playing Oakhill College.
