U-12s opener for sea­son

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

THE Mud­dies Un­der-12s kicked off the sea­son against Ma­reeba at Port Dou­glas. Ma­reeba won the toss and sent Mud­dies into bat.

Vin­cent and Nick opened the bat­ting, a part­ner­ship that was short lived when Nick was bowled in the first over for 1.

New player Liam showed great prom­ise with the bat, see­ing off Ma­reeba’s bet­ter bowlers be­fore choos­ing an in­cor­rect shot to a ball on the stumps.

Con­ner joined his opener in a 22 run stand be­fore be­ing caught.

Ever con­fi­dent Xan­der found the bound­ary and helped push the run rate up un­til a poor LBW de­ci­sion went against him. Ash­ton de­cided he didn’t want to bother his mum who was the scorer, be­ing bowled first ball.

Bat­ting at No. 9 another first gamer Bai­ley (5) grew with con­fi­dence with ev­ery ball he faced, smash­ing a bound­ary and only be­ing dis­missed four balls be­fore re­tire­ment. Vin­cent and Con­ner opened with nice tight bowl­ing, only al­low­ing one run off the first two overs. First change bowler Bai­ley (0/14) con­tin­ued the trend and when Lochie took the team’s sec­ond wicket with his first ball the boys were full of con­fi­dence. En­ter Ma­reeba’s No.5 bat Lane Han­nish who pro­ceeded to smack ev­ery­thing to the bound­ary, hit­ting 46 off 27 balls. Able (2/11) made the most of bowl­ing to the bats­man at the other end, go­ing for a hat trick off his third ball.

Luke (1/7) bowled a great length ball for his wicket while Liam made an awe­some come­back in his sec­ond over to bowl a maiden af­ter wear­ing the brunt of Lane’s bat­ting in his first. But it was too late - Ma­reeba amount­ing 8/146.
