The Un­der 14 Bulls opened up their sea­son by trav­el­ling to Be­nalla tak­ing on the Bushrangers.

With plenty of ner­vous en­ergy in the air it was im­por­tant that the Bulls got off to a solid start.

The top three bats­men in Austin Wil­lett, Ty- ler Nor­man and Sam Wood laid the foun­da­tions for the mid­dle or­der to cash in.

Austin re­ceived the ball of the in­nings to be bowled for 5.

The mid­dle or­der took their op­por­tu­nity with Co-cap­tains Jyda House (12) and Caleb Mitchell (17) putting on a run a ball part­ner­ship to place enor­mous pres­sure on the op­po­si­tion field­ers.

This was backed up by Desi O’Kane who top scored with a pow­er­ful 29 in­clud­ing 5 bound­aries.

A last over cameo from Jeremy Bramich, smash­ing 2 bound­aries, en­sured the Bulls set the im­pos­ing to­tal of 108 from 21overs.

Caleb and Desi opened the bowl­ing knock­ing over both the open­ers with just a leg bye on the board.

Jyda House backed up an open­ing maiden claim­ing a wicket in his se­cond over with a good catch from Tyler.

Tyler was soon in the ac­tion again tak­ing an­other catch of the bowl­ing of Os­car El­liott.

Two balls later Os­car crashed through the de­fence of the bats­man to rip the heart out of the Bushies mid­dle or­der.

The Bushies col­lapse con­tin­ued with Tan­ner Irvine, Sam and Tyler all bowl­ing their op­po­nents.

Dil­lon Kirchen re­turned to round out the in­nings tak­ing a wicket caught by Wil­lett who did a fan­tas­tic job be­hind the stumps.

An ex­cel­lent all round per­for­mance high­lighted by the teams ground field­ing es­pe­cially Luke Phillips who did a power of work.

Awards with thanks to Crusty Loaf Bak­ery - Desi O’Kane and Yar­ra­wonga Fish and Chips - Jeremy Bramich.
