With the Under 13s having a bye, the Under 15s were left to fly the junior Warrior flag this week, and recorded a comprehensive victory over Kettering.

North Huon posted 8-142 from their allotted 30 overs, With Jayden Richards (26) and Will Quarrier (21) leading the charge. Jaxon Thorpe and Baden Armstrong also had healthy contributions to help the total.

In defending, all bowlers again bowled tightly, with Connor Strong returning the best figures with 2-8, while Will Quarrier and Jayden Richards both took 2 wickets as well.

A Grade hosted Summerleas, and the blossoming opening partnership of Brad Pitt and Sam Roberts set up the win after the Eagle posted 198.

A 89 run stand set the tone, before Pitt went for 52, and Roberts scored 49.

Josh Stevenson scored 28, and the murder of Crowe’s scored 26* and 25* to see the total passed for the loss of 4 wickets.

Earlier, Kieren Wright and Aiden Geeves continued their bowling form, taking 5 wickets between them.

B Grade hosted a return bout with Judbury, after being easily beaten by them last game.

Batting first, Jackson Pastoor (54) and Joe Roberts (39) weathered a barrage of bowling, and had a couple of badges to show for it, as they put on 101 for the first wicket after being asked to bat.

Marcus Raine and Scott Stevenson were able to knock a few around in the last 15 overs to see North Huon push their total up to 6-260 from their 50 overs.

Phil Bell grabbed a couple of early wickets, and some good tight bowling through the middle overs saw the pressure build on the visiting side, until Luke Stocks started to make breakthroughs. Stocks and Bell both capture 3 wickets as did Raine to see Judbury bowled out for 163 and record a great win for North Huon.

C1 bowled first against Snug at Ranelagh, and found themselves chasing 171 after this visiting side had batted. Gemma Gregson was the main wicket taker with a 5fa. This proved too much for the C1’s, being bowled out for around 100 – no further details at this time.

C2 had no answer for the Southern Tigers batting, and found themselves chasing 326. Blake Lovell and Brad Crowe both got 20s to get the side off to a start, before the wickets started to tumble, and were soon 9-116. Dylan Geeves then combined with brother Jackson to put on 81 for the last wicket, with Dylan doing the damage with his highest score of 65 not out in a great performance.
