The Weekend Wrap
Sorry for the late Post! Not the greatest of weekends results wise with only our 1st grade boys claiming the points however an awesome weekend off field with a fantastic turnout at the bring and share night saturday. What a spread! curries, kfc , sausage rolls, quiches, enchiladas, pies, cob loafs, potato bakes and heaps more, i think it was fair to say no one left feeling hungry. Thanks to everyone who brought something along.
1st Grade V MaristA bard fought win set up by a brilliant all round bowling effort from the lads. Winning the toss and bowling first our openers kept things tight and kept Marist's run rate at bay. Cruize "the burgler" Ciallella and Big Joey Barningham finished off with a tight spell of bowling. The last 5 overs only going for 16 runs. One of the highlights would have to be Josh "was that one stump" Topliss with a brilliant runout, pure skill and finesse from the big fella. Chasing 163 for victory Jayden "future" Goodwin steadied the ship with a hard fought 64, leaving big bad barningham to finish off things with a quick fire 36 from 38 balls including another 6 to the tally. Riley Miguel also joined in the party with 23 runs including his first 6 of the year. All in all the boys chasing the total with 3 overs to spare. Big game against Eaton this week at the Rec.Jayden Goodwin 64 Cruize Ciallella 4/29 off 10Joe Barningham 36 Joe Barningham 1/28 off 9Riley Miguel 23 Josh Topliss 1/15 off 6
2nd Grade V CollieA pretty Ricky Disappointing effort from the lads on Saturday. Not even the return of the spiritual leader Dyl Bairstow could get the boys up as he boys only managed 104 with the bat. A guttsy effort from Lee "yeppppp" Sorfleet with 45 runs was the only highlight as the next top score was extras with 13. The only good thing to come out of it was at least it was over and done nice and quick to get down and watch the end of the 1st grade game, collie too good and chasing down the runs 3 down in the 21st over. Hopefully the lads will bounce back this week!Lee Sorfleet 45 Danny Ennor 2/24 off 4Danny Ennor 11 Cam Hannagan 1/25 off 6Rory Binnie 10
3rd Grade v CollieUnfortunately all good things must come to an end. After a promising start to the year the 3rd grade boys suffered their first loss up the hill in Collie. The day didnt start well with George Bailey taken to hospital before a ball was bowled, injuring his finger in the junior game. The boys batted first on a good looking track but made the criminal mistake of not batting out there overs, leaving 12 overs in the shed and getting to 163. With more runs than a Indian restaurants toilet to start the season this weekend was no different for Pencils who notched up 39. Cain Kelly chipped in with 25 and the old fox Junior brennan with 17 of his own. The bowling started a bit wayward with the lads going at 6 an over until drinks. Complete different story after the break with great tenacity, grit and fight just going down after getting the coalminers 8 down. A special mention to Aidan Daggett who bowled some heat and dug deep to try get the boys back in the game and also a 3rd grade debutant jaymon Mcquade who bowled 4 overs for 10 runs. Good effort ladsBrayden Hannagan 39 Aiden Daggett 3/16 off 9Cain Kelly 25 Nathan Brennan 2/24 off 9Darren Austin 2/28 off 7
4th Grade V Rising Star WarriorsThe fourth grade bullies have been humbled by the rising stars on Saturday! Anyone could of thought that this team may be the team to go through the year undefeated but that wont be the case as they suffered there first loss of the season. Batting first Big Merv battled hard for his 37 , loosing a few partners early before putting on a 45 run partnership with Ian "how do we sleep while the beds are burning" Prosser who also finished up on 37, including a modest 2 sixes. Newta worked hard to get the boys upto a respectable total with 36 runs of his own along with some handy lower order runs from Simmsy and Seb Galati getting the lads to 175. The boys toiled hard in the field but a few handy partnerships got the rising stars over the line with an over to spare. Wickets were shared but new kid on the block Riedy claiming another 2 to keep etching up his seasons tally. Our thoughts go out to Stephan and his family after suffering a horrific finger injury, not that he told anyone though, hopefully he will be able to play this weekend! Dan Basset Scarfe 37 Stephan Reid 2/46 off 8Ian Prosser 37Ross Newton 36
5th Grade V MaristThings started positively for the 5th grade boys in the field, holding Marist to 4/45 at one point until a 91 run partnership through the middle got Marist up to 184. Our own chase got off to a bit of a rocky start loosing early wickets until Wayne Warrick and Micky FLynn came together to steady the ship in what looked like could be a match saving partnership. Unfortuantley Flynny departed on 36 and Wazza not long after him on 64 with the lads still a fair way off the target. In the end the lads fell 32 runs short but will look to bounce back this week.Wayne Warrick 64 Michael Flynn 3/37 off 5Michael Flynn 36 Simon Eastman 2/48 off 8Bryn Bursill 2/6 off 6
Womans V LeschenaultA great first game for our colts girls. With most of the girls only training once before the first game and majority not even at all it was a great effort! Batting first we were aided by some wayward leschenault bowling to see us get up to 106 off our 30 overs. Leoni Lynch with a very good 9 runs, Georgia gibbs chipping in with 6 and Aiyana Fransen a handy 5no. The girls looking like they would win comfortably having Leschenault 7/45 at one stage but some power hitting saw Leschenault reach the target easily in the end! All in all a great effort and we can only get better from hear!
Looking forward to seeing everyone back on the track this week and we do it all again this weekend
