Well Done boys
The under 10's played away this week against Warrandyte with Cooper
Colledge as captain this week. After losing the toss we were sent into
bat. The boys batted extremely well, with obvious improvements already
showing through. Rhyan Foster made 24, hitting 5 boundaries, Jake McKenzie scored an impressive 20 and Liam Kear a constructive 18 including a huge
6 which easily cleared the boundary and made it's way out onto the roadway. The boys finished with 120 runs. Jake McKenzie impressed with bat
and ball taking 2 for 19. He was supported by Ryan Atkinson who took 2 for
12, including a nice caught and bowled. The boys learnt the lesson of over
throws in this game, with the opposition finishing on 156. Well done boys
great effort!!!

Round 2.
Round 2 vs Warrandyte
Our first 2 day game for year was an exciting prospect … we always knew that
Warrandyte would be a strong side and after a quick warm-up they won the
toss and elected to bat first. The boys had all been bowling well during the
week at training and I was sure we would continue to do so. For those who
aren’t aware, the boys were all given some ‘Team Rules’ at the start of the
season to give them targets to aim at during each game, one of those was to
ensure we got 1 Run Out per game when we were fielding … so when Isaac
swooped in on a ball and some unsure calling from the batsmen our first
wicket of the innings was a Run Out – Warrandyte 1/20. A great way to start.
Soon after we had our second wicket – 2/23 and things were looking even
better! Unfortunately from there they dug in, had 2 batsmen retire, and by
the end of their 23 overs they were 3/108.
We then went in to bat for our 23 overs, opening the batting was Bailey &
Ben Cox who both rose to the challenge. Keeping out the good balls (another
one of our rules – Defend the good balls), but we didn’t put too much pressure on their bad balls and so scoring was quite slow. Bailey was out caught
for a very hard fought 5 runs which bought Ben Parker to the crease … again
scoring was slow and the light was fading fast. Ben then reached his 40 balls,
batting very well and retired on 5. Our last few overs were seen out by Ben
Parker & Ethan when bad light stopped play, we were 1/20 after 18 overs. I
was very pleased with the effort, runs and scoring shots will come from confidence and experience in the middle, the way the boys put their heads down
and worked hard was great to see.
The next week saw us continue batting for our remaining 5 overs and then
we started our remaining 23 overs. Scoring this week was a lot easier, we
still missed out on some singles but again that will come from experience.
Jordan (14), Nicky (19rt), Peerson (12rt) and Tom (11no) all batted very well
and we put on another 86 runs to finish 5/106. Great work by all who batted
… special mention to Isaac who came in with 3 balls remaining of our innings
and turned the strike over to Tom for the last 2 balls.
With only pride to play for, the boys came out and bowled & fielded very
well. To have only bowled 23 No Balls/Wides for 43 overs was a great effort.
Warrandyte ended up 5/197 after an additional 20 overs. The pick of the
bowlers were Addy 1/5 off 3.0, Isaac 1/15 off 4.0, Peerson 1/16 off 4.0, Bailey
1/15 off 3.0 and Tom who kept again first week and then bowled 2 great but
unlucky overs 0/3.
Bring on next week … I can feel a win just around the corner!

Under 12/3’s: Coach: Bryan Boxshall. Team Manager: Matt Weeks.
Round 2. For Round 2 we were at home playing against North Ringwood. We
won the toss and chose to bat first. After our 23 overs we finished on
4/45. North Ringwood batted for their 23 overs and made 3/84. We came
back on Friday to finish off the match with North Ringwood continuing to
finish off their 46 overs. At the end of them they finished up with 6/140.
There were a few standouts with the ball, Alex Taranto took 2 wickets in a
row in his 3rd over (missed out on his hat-trick) to finish with 3/24 off 4
overs. Thomas Glide bowled very well again to finish with 1/5 off 5 overs including 2 maidens. Jarred Stone finished with 0/3 off 4 overs with 2 maidens.
Adam Boxshall finished with 1/11 off 6 overs with 2 maidens. We went into
finish off our 46 overs and managed to end up with 8/126. To give North
Ringwood a 39 run lead at the end of the first day and too fall short by 14
runs at the end of the match was a credit to the team. They batted exceptionally well. The standout with the bat was Harry Harvey who finished with
30 not out. Jackson Nunziante finished with 13, Adam Boxshall with 11 and
Thomas Glide with 10 (Retired.) A great effort once again. Keep up the great

Round 2.. The under 12/5s played warrandyte in round 2. Wonga won the
toss and Zach Russell who was captain for the day elected to bat.
We got off to a slow start losing the first seven wickets for 24 runs. Lachlan
mcbain batted well and retired while Cameron Atkinson was also not out at
the end of the first day we were 8/67.
Warrandyte batted and were in a commanding position after the first day on
The second day was a lot better for the boys, they dismissed warrandyte in
15 overs with Dylan, Tyson and Zach all taking two wickets and Cam Atkinson
taking two great catches leaving warrandyte all out for 122.
We needed to make 55 runs in our final innings with only two wickets in
hand. This bought Cameron Atkinson and Lachlan Mcbain to the crease, they
batted extremely well to put on a 97 run last wicket stand and win the game.
Cam made 61 not out and Lachlan finished on 31 not out.

Round 2.
14-1 Croydon Ranges Vs Wonga Park, at Silcock Reserve.
Week 1. Wonga Park was put into bat by Croydon Ranges and we were able
to steadily keep the runs ticking over. At the end of 50 overs we had set a
great score of 2 for 235 with 3 not outs being Jack LeBrun 53 not out, Hayden
Hoare 50 not out and Addison Forbes 55 not out. The highlight of the innings
was a well timed 6 over square leg by Addison. Dan Schlueter chipped in with
a well made 23 not out.
Week 2. The bowling was spot on from the first over and the wickets started
tumbling early, despite the opposition team manager reminding all Croydon
Ranges batsmen to “hold you wicket and don’t go out”. Croydon Ranges
were quickly bowled all out for 49 off 19 overs. All our bowlers performed
well and the figures were Addison 2 wickets for 8, Dan 1 wicket for 8, Eden 3
wickets for 17, Zac 3 wickets for 16 and Bailen’s economical bowling of 4
straight maidens.
With the first innings done, Wonga Park put Croydon Ranges back into bat
after morning tea to play for an outright win. With a new mix of bowlers,
Croydon Ranges hit out more in the second innings but still wickets continued to fall and finished all out for 136. Wicket takers for the second innings
were Blake 2 wickets for 22, Jack 2 wickets for 36, Hayden 2 wickets for 25,
Xavier 1 wicket for 12, Bailey 1 wicket for 11, Dan 1 wicket for 5 and Addison
1 wicket for 1. Eden toughed it out behind the stumps as keeper and took 2
catches and 1 stumping. A highlight was a magnificent diving catch running
backwards by Dan Keane. Well done everyone.

Round 2.
We won the toss again and batted first. We were up against a
very good bowling attack from Mooroolbark which proved to
be quite difficult and by the 5th over we were 4/6. Then Lachlan Poli came in for his first game and batted very well to stay
in for 9 overs in a 16 run partnership with Jordan Osborn before Lachy fell, then Jordan was ran out not long after. Matthew Phillips & Ethan Stone came together and batted out the
remainder of our 25 overs finishing on 6/33.
We started bowling and the boys bowled very well without
giving away any easy runs or wides.
Matty Phillips got an early wicket in his first over. Lachy Poli
took a catch off Zac Duo. Pearson Lynch then picked up 2
wickets in his first over with Jett taking 2 catches. Thom
Deany & Jake Guerin both picked up 1 wicket each to leave
them on 7/44 after their 25 overs.
Coming back the 2nd week we needed an early wicket to stay
on top but unfortunately it didn't come and Mooroolbark then
went on to make a 90 run partnership finishing on 9/146.
Needing 113 with only 4 wickets in hand was going to be
tough and ultimately it was after being all out for 52.
The boys bowled really well in the first week and just need to
be able to do that for 2 weeks in a row to have some really
good results.

Round 2. Wonga Park vs Scoresby
Venue: Scoresby Reserve
Great weather for cricket & again we lost the toss, and this time bowling
first. The dew on the ground meant the ball became a bit slippery and their
openers got off to a good start scoring at about 4 an over for the first 10
overs, before we slowed their scoring later, to have them finish 3/93 with
their opener having retired. Scoresby bowled very tightly, but our openers
got through this period, and we managed to end up at 1/65 at the end of Day
1. This was a similar position to our first game, being behind on runs, but
with extra wickets in hand we were confident heading into Day 2
Overcast conditions on Day 2, together with some overnight rain, meant that
Scoresby had more trouble controlling their bowling line and length, which
combined with our more aggressive batting and running between wickets we
added an extra 100 runs to finish at 6/165, losing 4 wickets (3 run outs) in the
chase for extra runs in the last 5 overs. Liam R (30) formed the backbone of
the innings over both weeks with Dylan (40), with assistance from Tom Glide
(11), Liam D (8) and Harrison (8no). The loss of late wickets, stalled our scoring slightly at the end of the innings.
Our boys again bowled better on week 2, at one stage having taken 8/38 off
the first 12 overs. With 13 Overs, 34 runs & 1 wicket required, Harrison &
Dylan had been kept in reserve to counter the return of their opening batsmen. The boys agreed to have Harrison & Dylan bowl their 4 overs each to try
to win the game. While both Harrison & Dylan bowled extremely well, we
didn’t manage the elusive last wicket, with Scoresby passing us late in the
49th over. The boys who sacrificed their additional personal overs in favour of
Harrison & Dylan, put the “team first” and should be congratulated.

A great team effort again with the game played with great sportsmanship
from both sides. Wickets were shared between Tom Glide (2/9), Liam D
(2/10), Liam R (2/31), Harrison (1/6), Tyler (1/13) & Tom L (1/22). Lachy Keyhoe bowled his best over of the season.
We played a near flawless game this round as a team, with only some minor
lapses of concentration probably being the difference between losing and
winning. If the boys bring this same endeavour each week is all I can ask – if
they do they will achieve success more often than not.
Under 16/1’s: Coach: Deon Voss. Team Manager: Craig Meadows.
Round 2. Round 2 was our first game at home and we were also playing on
the new pitch. Sam Hennessey was captain for this game and won the toss
and decided to bat.
Caylen opened up again with the Spuzz, coming off a duck in the first game,
at the other end. The boys put on an excellent partnership of 754 before
Caylen was out for 31. Cameron came to the wicket and he and Spuzz continued on, putting on another partnership of 75 before Spuzz was out for 70,
his highest ever score.
Ben Irvine batted at 4 and he and Cam put on 39 whilst lifting the run rate a
little before they were both out within 7 runs of each other, Ben made 23
and Cam a very good 62. Two of the Sams, Meadows & Hennessey saw the
day out and we finished at 4/198. A couple of runs short of our target of 200.
Day 2 saw Macca back and he took the new ball with Sam H. After a slow but
solid start it was Macca that got the break through with 2 wickets in an over
to have Mooroolbark 2/19. Sam followed up shortly afterwards and
Mooroolbark was 3/20.
A partnership of 25 was broken by Caylen's spinners and then some big
swinging from their number 65 took the score to 96 and gave them a sniff. It
was Cam that got the break through with Ben Irvine taking the catch and
then Sam King took the next 3 wickets including the big hitter well caught on
the boundary.
With the pressure off we relaxed a little and the last pair put on 22 before
Kieren wrapped up the game with Mooroolbark all out for 128.
