Round 11 Wrap Up

Round 11 Wrap Up

Round 11 saw A and B Grade with this week off, but saw Josh Stevenson, Brad Pitt, Bevan Roberts, Kyle Paul and Braeden Page all represent the HCCA in the rep games.

The Under 15s kicked things off on Friday night, recording a win away from home at Slab Road.

Sent in first, the young Warriors piles on 9-149, led by Codie Rwnsley and Will Quarrier.

Both retired on 40, and then retuned to continue on after the rest of the side had been dismissed. They put on an extra 35 runs together after joining with the total on 114, Codie finishing on 63 not out, and Will 56 not out.

In reply, early wickets to Dylan Geeves and Will set the tone, and then Jonny Thorpe tore through the middle order, taking 4-4 from 3 overs.

All bowlers bowled well to dismiss Slab for 49 and record a 100 run win.

C1 Grade were at home on Sunday against the Southern Tigers.

Winning the toss and batting first, the side was hopeful of posting a big total, but it wasn’t to be, with only Taylor Campisi (25) spending any length of time in the middle. He got to see a number of batsmen fall to the great spell from Tom Higgins, and heard some equally good batting advice.

Thomas Lovell tipped in with 16 vital runs at the end of the innings to push the total up to 102, and give the bowlers something to defend.

Scott ‘496’ Coad started the ball rolling, but the Tigers were cruising at 1-60.

A wicket to Raine and a another quick one to Codie Rawnsley quietened down the batting side, and Blake Lovell chipped in for a couple of vitals poles.

Coad and Tim Thorpe were brought back, and with Mitch Sullivan taking his third catch for the innings off Coad, the Tigers had lost 9-25 to be all out for 85, and record a great small total win for the Warriors.

C2 Grade travelled to Snug, and Mick Thorpe continued his good season with 53. He lacked support though, the side registering only 121.

In reply, Snug were never trouble, passing the total 4 down.

This Saturday sees B Grade return to action, while Sunday sees 3 sides playing, with C2 at Glen Huon, C1 at Lightwood Park, and A Grade at home at Ranelagh for the Past Players Day.

This is shaping as a big day for the club, with a lot of interest already.

If you are a Past Player or Offical from either the North Huon, Glen Huon, or Ranelagh Grove Cricket Clubs, we would love to see you along, and meet up with some familiar faces.

The game starts at 11am, with proceeding commencing form 12noon.
