So all Grades got some sort of a game in today…even if only three of them ended in a result…its still good to be back out on the park!
1st Grade played Wests. We had Wests 5/112 when the rain set in, and play was abandoned. Andrew McCrae & Toby Dodds grabbed a couple of wickets each.
2nd Grade’s game against Wests was interrupted by rain on a few occasions. But some big effort with covers meant we were able to get on and get a win. Wests made 6/90 off 27 overs. Sam Mutch & Jason Welsh took 2 wickets each. And in a rain reduced match we were set 61 runs off 22 overs to get the win…which we did in the 18th over at 5/61.
3rd Grade Black took on Helensburgh, and were set 161 to win…which we chased down easily 2/165 off 18 overs. Travis Dutton made 78 of them before retiring to ensure Barry Rose got a bat in his final game for the Lighthouse Keepers. Baz is off to live in Orange…all the best to you and the family.
3rd Grade White had Uni Green at 5/111 when rain stopped play. Aziz Khan & Senuka Karunanayaka took two wickets each.
3rd Grade Maroon had Keira Red 4/129 when rain stopped play.
4th Grade Maroon put on 9/192 against Uni Blue before rain stopped their game too. Ahmer Nasir made 63.
4th Grade Blue 6/172 defeated Keira Black.
4th Grade White may have been a little lucky, being bowled out for 59. Will Douglas picked up a couple of early wickets, and Wests were 2/16 when the rain set in….but who got saved, we will never know!!
In our Womens T20 games on Friday Night, our Wollongong Rubies team bowled first. The ND Butcherettes made 2/85 before the game was abandoned. And in the other game, the Bally Maggies 3/98 defeated our Wollongong Diamonds 6/68.
In the Juniors, our U15As were set a big score of 8/168 by Wests to chase. We were bowled out for 62. Not sure about the U13Bs and U11s, but we almost doubled our Master Blaster & Junior Blaster participants this week…going well, and thanks to everyone that is helping out.
A very good turnout to our Season Launch there are a few photos of everyone enjoying themselves. Many Thanks to Vinod Daruvuri, Kote & the boys that were busy in the kitchen cooking up some Indian for us to enjoy too.
