Convincing win for the Under 12 Rams
On a cold Saturday morning the Under 12 Rams came up against Benalla Bushrangers Red.
After losing the toss the Rams where sent in to bat.
Geoffrey Montgomery and Jackson Purtell opened and got off to a good start before Geoffrey Montgomery was bowled.
Two balls later the Benalla opening bowler also bowled Jackson Purtell and things looked a little shaky.
This brought Lachlan Phillips and Jack Costigan to the crease and they didn’t let the boys down dispatching the bowlers to all parts of the ground.
Phillips was damaging smashing eight fours in his 40.
Costigan carved out a well-made 28no.
Xavier Mitchell and Cam Ford both retired making 15 and 4 respectively and bringing the total to 118.
The boys came out confident after their flawless batting display and in the first over Geoffrey Montgomery produced an outstanding piece of fielding to run out the Benalla opener with a direct hit.
All the boys bowled with discipline with only five wides being bowled, compared to 23 the last round.
Xavier Mitchell and Lachlan Phillips both took one wicket with the Benalla boys batting very well.
In the end the Rams boys proved too good winning 118 to 53.
