Ju­nior cricket in the re­gion kicked off last week­end with a game in Broome­hill.

With teams from Katan­ning, Broome­hill, Tam­bellup, Woodanilling and Ko­jonup, the Katan­ning boys won the toss and elected to bat.

Toby Quar­ter­maine top­scored for Katan­ning with 10 and Ro­han Bignell and Bran­don Leyte, of Broome­hill, both tak­ing a wicket early each.

Katan­ning made a to­tal of 96 from 25 overs, how­ever Broome­hill fought hard to come back, fin­ish­ing only one run be­hind on 95.

Katan­ning Ju­nior Cricket team co-or­di­na­tor Ben­jamin Quar­ter­maine said there were cer­tainly some play­ers to watch out for in the fu­ture.

“While it’s not a proper game of cricket with all kids bowling two overs each and bat­ters bat­ting for four overs a pair (due to num­bers), the skill level and com­pet­i­tive­ness still re­mains and there is some fan­tas­tic cricket played,” he said.

In se­nior cricket, Katan­ning Wan­der­ers de­feated Franklin by seven wick­ets.

The se­nior play­ers were also selected to play in a com­bined side that would play in the Lind­say Scott shield, which is an as­so­ci­a­tion com­pe­ti­tion played against sides from Nar­ro­gin, Lake Grace, Bod­ding­ton, Pin­gelly, Wil­liams and Wa­gin to be held in Katan­ning start­ing on Novem­ber 5.
