Wins to our 1s, 2s, 3s White, 3s Maroon, 4s Black & U13s yesterday to go with the earlier wins to the Gems & Junior Gems this week.
1st Grade took on University at North Dalton Park. At 4/29 we were a little concerned! Then a 97 run partnership between Nathan Loveday (55) & Corey Fogarty (90), then a 83 run partnership between Fogarty & Toby Dodds (44) got us back on track & finished on top with 8/235.
We were well on top early with the ball, although unable to grab a wicket until 18th over. Duncan Maddinson (3/36) grabbed another couple of quick ones…but Uni were still well in the game. Jason Welsh 5/34 helped swing the game in our favour. Whilst Welsh took the spoils, Will Whitehouse & Tyler Johns (1/12 off 8 overs) set the tone early on. Uni were all out for 205.
2nd Grade had a good day out too making 5/254 against University. Matt Crouch (60), Scott Smith (63) & Lachlan Murphy (86 n.o.), with a couple of 90 run partnerships setting the foundation. Sam Mutch took 4/40 on his way past 300 wickets for the Club, and the other bowlers chipped in as we bowled out Uni for 130.
3rd Grade White made quick work of Port Kembla. Dawood Hassan (3/3) & Abdul Haseeb Afridi (4/12) cut through the Port Kembla batting order to have them all out for 57. Shazaib Noor (41 n.o.) took us to the winning total 2/61 in 16 overs to claim the 2 bonus points as well.
3rd Grade Maroons had an even more impressive win over the Uni Greys. Thrivedi Visametty (59) & Kailash Bharadhwaj Sridhar (55) allowed us to set 9/195 for Uni to chase. Mahammad Wahaj Sheikh took 7/7, and Will Badger 3/6…we bowled Uni all out for 32.
4th Grade Blacks are continuing their winning ways. We put on 6/354 against Port Kembla. Michael Bryant (40), Ulises Jaque (37), Drew Bryant (51), Lachlan Crawley (59), Kyle Dutton (64 n.o.) & Stephen Brown (on debut) made 44. David Smolenaars & Bryce Woods each took 3/12 as we bowled out Port Kembla for 89.
4th Grade Whites were well in their game against Corrimal Red. Despite being bowled out for 92, we had Corrimal 5/55…but lost 7/97.
