Young guns impress
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.
