Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Classies Classies -

The un­der 16 boys took on City Colts White at Vic Park Satur­day morn­ing with Colts win­ning the toss and elect­ing to field.

Sam Wil­lett and first-year player Zac Banch opened the bat­ting, get­ting the team off to a good start.

The hard-hit­ting vice-cap­tain in Wil­lett quickly raced to 13 be­fore be­ing dis­missed bring­ing Max Hem­phill to the crease.

Lit­tle Banchy and Maxy tore the colts bowl­ing line up apart putting on 60 runs be­fore Banch was dis­missed for 29 - a great ef­fort from Zac .

Shortly af­ter Max was re­tired on 30 with a great knock.

Cap­tain Will Sharp and An­gus Hes­lin came to the crease but Will was dis­missed leg be­fore for 6.

Reece Nor­man made his way out and he and Gus got the fi­nal score to 4/105 off 21 overs.

Cap­tain Sharp and the lanky Gus Hes­lin opened the bowl­ing and it wasn’t long un­til Gus had his first wicket for the sea­son with lit­tle Banchy tak­ing a screamer with a full dive to his right at cover.

Gus took an­other 3 balls later with a cool and calm one-handed caught and bowled; great fig­ures for Gus with 2/0 off his 3 overs.

Half­way through the Colts in­nings Sharp called on his spin­ners in Hem­phill and the very talk­a­tive Tom Kennedy.

With Hem­phill tak­ing 1/8 off his 3 overs and the best leg spin­ner in the Kennedy fam­ily in Tom tak­ing 2/6 off his 3 overs.

Josh Ed­nie chimed in with a wicket for him­self as well with Hem­phill tak­ing a nice catch at slip. The Colts fin­ished 7/50 off their 21 overs. Great start by the boys in what looks like a good sea­son ahead.
