Round 5 Wrap Up

The Under 15s followed up last weeks breakthrough win with another win this week, this time over Slab Road on Friday night.

Batting first, North Huon piled on 5-152 from their 30 overs, Jonny Thorpe top scored with 38, and had valuable contributions from Codie Rawnsley (36), Will Quarrier (24*) and Dylan Geeves (18*).

All the bowlers bowled really well, and gave away nothing. Thomas Lovell and Jonny Thorpe both took 2 wickets, but it was a well rounded team performance to hold Slab Road to 8-95 from their 30 overs.

A Grade hosted Slab Road at Glen Huon for the second time in 6 days, and this time the visitors were asked to bat first. After 50 overs, they closed their innings closed at 258, Stevenson Bell and Pitt all multiple wicket takers.

In reply, an early wicket saw Josh Woolley and Dean Harriss dig in to see off the opening bowlers. Woolley followed soon after, but the Harriss and Adam Crowe combined for a large 114 run partnership. Harriss went for a well compiled 70 in his A Grade return, whilst Crowe went on to record his maiden A Grade ton with 104.

Despite his dismissal, Brad Pitt (returning from injury) and Phil Bell were able to see the total passed with 2 overs to go, and record a great win for North Huon.

B1 Grade travelled to Cygnet, and batted first making 190. David And Will Collins both batted well to record 30+ scores, and late hitting from Isaac Manson and Troy Page helped push the total up.

In reply, Slab got off to a flyer, and despite wicket falling, North Huon could not contain them, with Slab racing to the total with 6 wickets down.

Dropped chances proved costly for C1 Grade, with Woodbridge posting an imposing 271. Jackson Pastoor led the charge with the ball with 4 wickets, whilst Daniel Page, George Parremore and Lewis Campisi all took 2.

Despite the best efforts of Pastoor (34) and Aiden Geeves (53), North Huon were not able to rein in the total, being bowled out for 213.

C2 Grade travelled to Margate, and bowled an undermanned home side out for 116, James Oates, Codie Rawnsley and Jonny Thorpe all taking 2 wickets.

A batting collapse ensued, with North Huon falling to 7-21, but Tim Thorpe coming in at 9 attempted to liven things up with a quick fire 48*. HE ran out of partners though, North Huon falling short 38 runs.

The North Huon Christmas Party will be held Thursday, Dec 15 from 6pm at Ranleagh. All Milo, and T20 Blast participants are invited to attend, along with Underages and Seniors.
