Ram­pag­ing Bulls con­tinue win­ning ways

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Sport -

The Un­der 14 Bulls have con­tin­ued their rol­lick­ing start to the sea­son with a mas­sive win over City Colts Blue.

The Colts were set the im­pos­ing but not im­pos­si­ble task of chas­ing 179 af­ter a blis­ter­ing bat­ting dis­play by the Bulls the pre­vi­ous week.

Un­der the guid­ance of stand-in coach Rod Wil­lett, the Bulls knew that early wick­ets would be the key to the vic­tory.

The open­ing part­ner­ship was bro­ken in the sec­ond over when a mix-up al­lowed Jyda House to pounce on a loose ball to run out the Colts opener.

His co-cap­tain Caleb Mitchell cracked through the de­fences of the num­ber three to have the Colts in trou­ble at 2/11.

Af­ter a steady­ing part­ner­ship it took a great catch from Dil­lon Kirchen off the bowl­ing of Luke Phillips for the next wicket to fall. This was the start of a mon­u­men­tal col­lapse.

Left arm Pocket rocket Harry Barker forced a poor stroke from the Colts bats­man with the ball snapped up by Desi O’Kane.

The Colts cracked un­der the over­whelm­ing pres­sure built up by the Bulls.

Wick­ets to Sam Wood and an­other bril­liant run out from Jyda House had the Colts 6/40. Dil­lon Kirchen came in to wrap up the tail tak­ing a ca­reer best 3/7 with the Colts bowled out for 59.

The Bulls sent the Colts back in with 18 over still re­main­ing for the day.

It didn’t take long be­fore the Colts were in all sorts of trou­ble.

Two wick­ets to Austin Wil­lett and one each to Tan­ner Irvine, Os­car El­liott, Barker and O’Kane had the Colts 6/21.

The Colts then bat­ted out the day to hold off a rare out­right vic­tory to the Bulls.
