05 Feb Day 1 of Round 13
It was another great day for the A grade team down at Stevens Reserve, securing first innings points in their clash with Mount Lawley and then starting on their chase for an outright win.
Having bowled Mount Lawley out for just 57, thanks to Chris Chellew’s “Magnificent Seven”, they then set about chasing down the modest target.
Reaching the required 57 just 2 down, Chris Wood (58*) and Tom Abell (81*) then set about building a lead before declaring on 160.
Mount Lawley ended on 2/45 with the wickets shared between Jamie Heath and Ben Moore.
BIG DAY OUT FOR THE TWOS
The Twos celebrated Ryan Shuttleworth’s 10,000 run milestone in style amassing 364 runs for the loss of 8 wickets. The highest score across all grades this weekend.
Runs were spread around the team with the openers Ryan and Jordan Buller setting the scene for the day with an opening partnership of 117.
After losing Ryan for 54, Jordan Buller went on to make 71, and then Dan Kennedy and Chris Davenport had a solid 97 run partnership that ended just before Tea with Dan out for 47. Chris went onto to score 83, with the help of Fenner 13, & Joel Crosswell 43.
Young Liam Dallimore also showed he could bat with a fine 26 leaving Alec Green (12*) and Elijah Turriff-Smith (6*) to score some quick runs in the last overs.
Third Grade: Things didnt go so well with the Three’s only managing 118.
Bayley Holman top scored with 25. In reply Mount Lawley are 96/2.
Fourth Grade find themselves in a similar position after being bowled out for 113. After being at 9-86, Kyle Lumsden helped the tail wag with 24*.
In reply Mount Lawley are 0-43, so will be hoping for some great bowling performances next week.
With rain models predicting light rain on Tuesday, then more on Thursday, building Friday, easing Saturday and possibly continuing into Sunday, next weekend could produce some interesting results
