A massive week for the North Huon Cricket Club this week.
Heading back to Monday, our cat 1 rescinded their second win against the Kingston Crows in their first road trip for the year.
Tuesday saw our under 14 girls take to the field for the first time, putting in a great effort in a first run against Kettering.
Saturday saw A Grade travel as well to Kingston Beach Oval to take on the Crows, and after electing to bat, out together a well constructed 9-281 from their 50 overs.
Lachie Fraser hit form with a sublime 75 to be the mainstay if the innings, and had support from Brad Pitt and Kyle Paul.
A wicket first ball to Josh Stevenson set the time for the Crows innings, and a disciplined bowling performance saw the home side restricted to 169 – the wickets were shared around, but Jacob Stanway picked up 3 to return the best figures.
B Grade hosted Bruny Island in a tight encounter at Ranelagh.
Batting first the Warriors could only compile 114, 51 of those coming from the bat of Jackson Pastoor as he held the innings together.
Marcus Raine and Shane Fletcher kept North Huon in the hunt with the ball, but not enough runs on the board was always going to be a struggle, Bruny eventually scraping home by 2 wickets.
C1 hosted Southern Tigers with a family flavor for the day, three father son combos in the make up of the side.
Batting first, North Huon got to 152 before being dismissed – Taylor Campisi top scoring with 28 and Troy Page with 26.
The highlight though was a 50 run stand between 10 year old Lucas Sullivan and occasional player Dean Bester for the last wicket, taking the score from 9-102 to 152, both finishing on 17.
These runs proved vital, with Dylan Geeves bowling some superb swing bowling, and along with Troy Page and Campisi saw the Tigers dismisses for 67, Geeves taking 4
