The North Huon Warriors waited nervously through Friday to see what the weather was going to serve up for Round 4 of the HCCA Under 15 competition, but the skies remained clear over Cygnet Memorial.

Warriors captain Anthony Harrison won the toss, sending the Roadies into bat in sunny conditions, with a swirly breeze blowing the southern end.

Harrison and Broughton Chapman took up the new pill, with Harrison (1/12 off four) having an immediate impact, knocking out the middle stump of opener Campbell Clifford on the fifth ball of the innings for a duck, leaving the Roadies at 1/0.

Tommy Clark made amends for the poor start though, quickly finding the boundary and he and Patrick Compton pushed the score along to 1/24, before Clark retired on 18 not out.

Travis Walter also made a handy 15 retired, but, from there, the Warriors were able to grab an extra couple of wickets through Jaxon Thorpe (2/3 off two), clean bowing Jack Walter for nine and Amalia Clifford for a duck.

The Roadies completed their 20 overs with 76 runs to defend.

In reply it was Ollie Thomson and Broughton Chapman to open with the stick for the Warriors, Thomson and Extras racking up a quickfire 11 runs before Chapman even faced a ball. Chapman would have been wishing he could have waited another ball or two, when Lewis Direen got one past him to see him gone for a golden duck.

Thorpe (15) came out and quickly got the score along to 44, losing Thomson (5) along the way, Harrison (19) coming out to take up where Thorpe left off, teaming up with Ollie Coulson (nine retired) to get the score to within five of the winning total, Ty Fahey claiming his middle stump to see the Warriors at 5/73.

Lochie Cordwell (five retired) and Coulson saw the Warriors safely home, with the Roadies kindly bowling out the 20 overs to give the Warriors lower order a chance to bat.

Harry Thomson again provided some entertainment for spectators, grabbing 15 runs (retired) from 11 balls, including three boundaries, as he swung for the hills with his signature style.
