Round 10 Wrap Up

Round 10 Wrap Up

A Grade travelled out to Kettering on Saturday buoyed by last weeks victory.

With the home side electing to bat first, an early wicket to Kieren Wright was tempered by a 90 run partnership following.

Bevan Roberts made the breakthrough with the score on 102, and from there, the wickets started to come steadily. Roberts finished with 2, as did Braeden Page and Wright. The pick though was Aiden Geeves who claimed his best A Grade figures to date with 4-23, and continues to improve each game.

With a total of 171 to chase, the inform Sam Roberts and Brad Pitt strode to the wicket, and runs quickly flowed. The two were rarely troubled until Roberts was caught for 49 with the score on 155, but Pitt was able to see the total passed for the loss of only 1 wicket, registering his ton on the way with 104* and secure the second win of the year for the Warriors.

Next week will see them host the Southern Tigers on Sunday at Ranelagh, in conjunction with the club’s Past Players Day, with a 10:30 commencement.

This club event has grown from year to year, and kicks off at 12 noon – the club would love to see any associated with Glen Huon, Ranelagh Grove, or North Huon come along to enjoy the day and share some tales.

B Grade hosted the Blackmans Bay 2 side at Ranelagh, and were asked to bowl first in inclement conditions

Consistent rain showers proved troublesome for the home side, and made bowling difficult, but Paul Jacques again proved perfect for the conditions taking 4-15. Back up with a couple of run outs, and two wickets to Marcus Raine, Blackmans Bay were 8-72 before play was called off. Full credit to both sides for trying to get a completed game happening, but the weather proved to be the real winner.

C1 travelled to Kingston on Sunday, and a couple of late changed saw Dean Harriss take to the field in his 300th club game.

Batting first, North Huon were only able to manage 103, however Will Quarrier again showed promise, and Mick Anning provided some late runs.

Tim Thorpe took 2 wickets, and Jonny Thorpe, Mick Thorpe and Will Quarrier one each, but the total proved too small to defend, North Huon going down by 5 wickets.

C2 Grade travelled to Woodbridge, and struggled to get wickets against a more experienced outfit.

Chasing a big total of 2-317 was always going to be difficult, but to their credit the young Warriors stuck it out, and batted through the 50 overs.

Peter Pitt was Abel to provide the side something to bat around, and Sam Kyle played his best innings to date, scoring 24, whilst George Parremore and Troy Geeves also scored in the twenties.

The Under 15s hosted Kettering on Friday night, but were only able to get 6 overs play in before the Raine set in and caused the game to be abandoned.
