Saturday Morning Cricket
Well done to Xaviar Bell and Ezra Dalley who are the first juniors to make it onto the honours board – let’s hope a few players can join them this weekend with scores over 30 runs or 3 wickets. If you need to keep an eye on cancellations the best place is the CJCA Cancellation page . BWU5 shake hands after the match on Saturday morning
Premier Grade and 2a’s
Labour Weekend’s Saturday and Monday were both cricket days for the Premiers and 2a’s. The Premiers lost the 2 day fixture on Saturday as LPW took the iniative away and built up a quick lead in the morning which put them in winning position. Monday’s 1 day fixture was a loss to Marist Harewood who were able get wickets at the right times to keep ahead of the match, and not even a 61 by Blake Coburn could save the day. 2a’s on the other hand finished with an outright win in the 2 day fixture, and a win in the 1 day match on the Monday. Well done to skipper Steve McKean, let’s hope you have another win over the weekend (and we are not talking about the Wallabies).
A mixed bag of results all round for the afternoon grade seeing the Brawlers going down, who have a top of the table clash on Saturday at Burnside #3. President’s grade player Ben Allan scored 94 – the highest of a club member for the season to date – before his only mistake, a faint snick to the keeper sent him on his after an impressive partnership with Geoff Boorer 71. Not a bad knock after a 4 year absence from the crease. Geoff Boorer the juggler, next in.
Honours Board and Al Brown MVP
Landon Neale keeps his place a at the top of the Al Brown leaderboard dominated by Brawler’s and Diamond Traders, a surprise may await them in the next issue as the 2a’s will finally have there CricHQ scores loaded up we shall have to wait and see.
A link to the MVP points is on the Al Brown section of the website, while the Honours Board has been updated to reflect the weekends play of play and congratulations to all those who have made it onto the board.
