A great result from the Under 15s tonight, notching up their first win in a long time against Kettering.
Batting first the Junior Wazzas put on 8-100. Codie Rawnsley continued his good run of form with 41 retired, and got good support from Jonny Thorpe (20) and Henry McGuire (14).
Tight bowling from all the bowlers saw runs hard to come by for Kettering, but it took until the 15th over for Codie Rawnsley to take the first wicket.
2 quick run outs then followed to Jonny Thorpe, and the Codie was able to follow up with 2 wickets in 2 balls to have North Huon really on the front foot.
A further run out from Blake Lovell, and the disciplined bowling, saw Kettering restricted to 6-82 and North Huon claim their first win for the year.
A Grade travelled to Huonville, and despite a thrilling contest could not quite come away with the win.
Batting first, North Huon batted around Phil Bell’s 61, but couldn’t give him the support he needed, and could only muster 121 together.
Despite a couple of early losses, Huonville didn’t look in trouble until Marcus Jackson was brought into the attack. He cut a swathe through the lineup, including 2 wickets in one over, but Huonville were able to hold on for the last 7 runs and get over the line 9 down.
B Grade hosted Huonville at Glen Huon, with spin being the dish of the day with Zac Duggan, Dean Harriss and Luke Stocks taking 8 wickets between them to dismiss Huonville for 193, after their openers had put on 125 without loss.
In reply, North Huon lost Connor Robson and Brad Crowe early, but Harriss and Marcus Raine combined for an unbeaten 135 run stand to see the total passed in 35 overs.
C1 travelled to Kingston, and couldn’t come away with the marbles. Defending a total of 176, Kingston were able to pass this 4 down.
C2 Grade hosted Blackmans Bay on Sunday, and again we fell short. With some new faces in the line up, Will Quarrier was the top scorer with 26, while Mick Thorpe scored 23.
Nick Crellin, in his first game for the club, was the leading wicket taker with 3.
The T20 Div 1 hosted Slab Road after the C2 game, and batting first, lost early wickets to be 5-20. Shane Fletcher attempted to rebuild the innings, but his 31 was a lone hand, North Huon batting out the overs to b 9-108.
Super tight bowling was going to be needed, but the total proved to be too small to defend. Despite wickets to Stevenson, Raine, and Crowe, Slab cruised through with 3.2 overs in hand.
