Steve Hogan, a 16-year-old prodigy from St. Patrick’s Shorncliffe, has showcased his tremendous batting ability yet again for the Sandgate-Redcliffe Gators cricket club.
The 2022/23 Dixon Medalist made waves when he scored an astonishing 178 runs in the second innings against Valley. Batting at Trevor Hohns Field against rising stars and youth representatives alike, Hogan shrugged off the Gators’ first innings collapse to lead his team’s reply. While the Gators ultimately lost to Valley, Hogan’s performance was the talk of the local cricket community.
Another blistering century in Taverner’s for Steve Hogan
The talented all-rounder followed up his 178 with another brilliant 145 in the Under-17 Taverner’s Cricket Competition. Facing athletes in his age group, the Year 10 pupil continued to shine against the Darling Downs, hitting 10 fours and 5 sixes in his innings. Hogan’s consistent batting has cemented his reputation as one of the state’s most promising young players.
After coming to the crease with the Gators trailing, Hogan spearheaded the reply to leave his team in a commanding position at 6-254. He also contributed with the ball, taking two wickets to help the Gators’ bowling attack defend their total.
With multiple centuries already under his belt this season, all eyes will be on Steve Hogan as he looks to continue his blistering run of form. His immense talent and consistency make him a player to watch now and in the future.
