Twin tons and a Squirrel stand set up the round
The first day of our match against Johnson Park saw us win the toss and bat and again we were in trouble very early on with the score at 5/88 wiht only Steve Moore having made any significant dent on the scoreboard with 32. Jake Evans then came to the crease and in signs that he is heading into great form batted throughout the day to make an outstanding 80. Jake was supported by Nick Whitty who is also in great form with a 37 and a lustily hit from Strahany of 27 at the end. The boys have notched up a score of 220 and will be working hard to convert that into a winning score this coming Saturday.
The second XI won the toss and batted first. An opening stand of 123 was dominated by James Dobbie-Hayward who made 63. Brendan Heath then took over and simply dominated the match until he was out for a truly brilliant 163. The Huss also used the time at the crease to work back into form with a very well compiled 56. The boys ended up all out for 340.
The thirds travelled to Cathies Lane (also known as the potato chip ground because of its undulation) and batted first and are 4/156 halfway through their dig with Mt Gate 8/81 in theirs so the boys will be looking for a quick victory next Saturday
The 4ths played at home against 2nd placed The Basin and bowled first. The innings was set up with an amazing spell of bowling from Jay Williams who took 5/10 off his 7 overs. The Basin ended up 7/128 in their first phase. In reply we are 2/112 with Nick Smith and Mal McKern at the crease after Tom Somervaille got us off to a very good start with 36.
The U/13 Black team faced off against St Johns Tecoma on Friday night in a one day match and bowled first and got St Johns Tecoma 8/56. Tak Kensley had a ripping match taking 3/8. In reply we made 2/92 and had 4 boys retire with 3 of them for the first ever time. Congratulations to Zac, Daniel, Mitchell and Taj for a great batting effort. This was the teams first win of the season so well done and keep working guys.
The U/13 Yellow team had a bye
The U/17 travelled to Eildon Park and bowled first. The bowling was very good and the fielding was even better restricing EOP to 5/43 off their 23 overs. Lachie Hughes blitzed in slips with 2 great catches and P2 pulled off two run outs. In reply we are 4/149 off our 25 overs which was highlighted by an outstanding knock by Liam Hunt who retired on 100 off 20 overs.
Liam Hunt coming off after reaching his ton. The Ringwood top is very noticeable as Liam starts his journey into Premier Cricket this coming week. We wish him all the best.
