On a day that we remember our Life Member Clive Kingsford, and everything that he did for our Club, we also celebrated 6 wins in our Senior Grades, and a Junior Club that is building. From the Blasters to the U17s, we have a wonderful club and are happy to see so many kids playing our game at Wollongong.
For our Seniors, all teams won. And there were some wonderful performances. With 1s, 2s & 4s Blacks having dominant wins, 3s Whites putting on a 69 run 8th wicket partnership (between Chrowy & George) to rescue us from 7/96, Vinod Daruvuri taking 6/23 for 3s Maroon, and Jordan Santomaggio (34) & Nilesh Chauhan (62 n.o.) putting on 104 for their 6th wicket partnership for 4s White. Syed Bukhari took 3/15.
Matt Grealy took 4/6 in 1s. Toby Dodds followed up last weeks score with 36 n.o.. Blake Owen took 5/30, and scored 52 n.o. in 2s. Michael Bryant made 70 n.o. for 4s Black, and there were 3 wickets each to Kyle Dutton & Bryce Woods.
1st Grade bowled Port Kembla out for 103. Then we chased the win down, 3/104 in the 15th over for the double bonus point win.
2s bowled Port out for 124, and we chased that down 2/124 in the 25th over...also a double bonus point win. Matt Crouch got us off to a good start making 46 before retiring.
3s White made 181 against Balgownie. Paul Chrostowski (35) and Yasir Mehmood (45) getting us up to a defendable 181. We bowled Bally out for 160.
3s Maroon are back in the winners circle. We batted against Port Kembla and put on 9/234. Ashwin Sethumadhavan (54), Laxmi Guduru (43), Athul Narayanan (38) & Darren Holbrow (38) all big contributors. Then Vinod took 6/23! Playing for the Port Kembla side was our Wollongong Gems player Kobi Lynch-Munro, and she took 3/40....we will see her back on the field this coming Friday for the Gems when they play the Razor Rosettes at Albion Park.
4s Black 3/110 chased down the 109 set by Keira Black.
4s White made 6/163 and defended that against Keira Gold - all out 121.
