while opener Nathan Heron got 21 (two fours).

With the ball, it was Mitchell Rice do­ing the dam­age tak­ing 4-25 from his 10 overs. Jake Steven­son with 2-16 (4.3) and Liam Kalbfell also with 2-16 (5) did very well, while Brad Kemm­ler was equally as good, tak­ing one wicket for just 14 runs from his 10 overs.

It’s now two from two for New Nor­folk III.

Molesworth II went down to Ho­bart by four wick­ets at Ris­don Vale in the other Sev­enth Grade match.

Bat­ting first, Molesworth­was all out for 58 off 34.5 overs. In re­ply, the home side had a stut­ter, los­ing wick­ets along the way, but got the job done, fin­ish­ing 6-60 off 19.3.

Molesworth Keeper Josh Ni­chols top scored with 19 (two fours) and Blayne King made 14 (two fours).

With the ball, all the bowlers tried hard. Cap­tain Jack Evans bowled very well tak­ing 2-16 from seven overs, as did Blayne King 1-2 (2), Jake Sor­ren­son 1-6 (3) and Colby Evans 1-16 (3). With plenty of young play­ers, Molesworth II are do­ing a great job and a win is just around the cor­ner.

Eighth Grade

AF­TER a big loss last week, Both­well II turned the ta­bles with a thrilling one-run win over the MacKil­lop Beltas at North War­rane Oval on Sun­day.

Af­ter win­ing the toss and bat­ting, the Bucks made just 82 from 30.1 overs. In a down-tothe-wire match, they dis­missed the home team for 81 from 37 overs.

It needed some spe­cial bowl­ing from the Bucks and they got it in Stu­art Eyles who put on a fine per­for­mance, tak­ing four wick­ets for just eight runs from six overs to clean up the op­po­si­tion.

Brodie White got 2-17 (8), Mark Pearce 2-19 (10) and Rhys Franklin 1-17 (10) also did very well. Mathew Glover with 1-18 (3) was the other wicket taker.

With the bat for the Bucks, Michael White top scored with 23 and Blake Eyles made 15.
