The Under 13s were due to start proceedings for the week, but the weather didn’t agree, and the game was postponed to the upcoming Monday, Feb 19, so 2 reports next week!
The Under 15s hosted Slab Road, and went down easily.
North Huon batted first, and were bowled out for 102, with Jonny Thorpe playing his best innings of the year scoring 23. Will Quarrier chipped in with 14, but the rest dropped away, and the total was short of what they were hoping for.
In reply, Slab Road cruised to the total for the loss of only 2 wickets which fell to Jonny Thorpe and Anthony Harrison.
A Grade hosted Woodbridge, and after a couple of early wickets, Josh Stevenson steadied the ship and then kicked on to post 76 and give the side an innings to bat around, Adam Crowe the 26 and Andrews Crowe with 31 helped through the middle overs, and Jacob Stanway chipped in with 21 from 13 at the end to see a reasonable total posted of 8-244 on the large Ranelagh ground.
Stevenson and Stanway put paid to any sign of resistance with 2 quick wickets each to leave Woodbridge reeling at 4-17, and they never recovered from there.
Shane Fletcher took another 2 and Aiden Geeves continued his good form bowling straight to take 3-11 and see the Wombats bowled out for 101.
B Grade had a tough trip to Kettering to take on Blackmans Bay.
After winning the toss, Jackson Pastoor played well at the top of the innings to score 69, while Phil Bell and Marcus Raine both scored 40s.
However, the total of 8-218 felt a little short on the lightning Kettering gourd, and this proved so as Blackmans Bay cruised to the total in 35 overs, with the depleted B Grade attack having no answers to the Sharks batsmen.
C1 Grade recorded an important win on Sunday against the Southern Tigers, with Dean Harriss holding down the innings to carry his bat for 135 not out in the innings total of 9-223. Will Quarrier and Tim Thorpe both helped out with 21.
David Bourne was the pick of the bowlers again with 2-11, but all bowlers contributed well, restricting the Tigers to 9-129 from their 50 overs and record a vital win.
C2 Grade travelled to Snug, and while they didn’t come away from with the points put in their best performance of the year.
Snug batted first, and Dylan Geeves led the way with the ball taking 3-37, and was supported by Dan Partridge with 2-37, and Henry McGuire with 2-11.
In reply, the young C2 side batted out 45 overs to post 182. Dylan Geeves again batted well with 30, whilst Blake Lovell top scored with 53 in a great knock. A really good performance from this group of players this week.
