Colts beat Souths under lights
RSL Colts have won plenty of night cricket and Mega Hit titles over the years and on Friday night they unveiled a host of next generation names in red and white.
Colts opener Charlie Kempston smashed an unbeaten 101, reminiscent of his dad Michael in his hey day! His innings ensured a seven-wicket win in just 16 overs after Souths had set a target of 151.
The Mega Hit competition continues throughout the season with spectators and players keenly anticipating the opening of the new clubhouse adjacent to the grandstand.
Mitch Bower blasted three fours and two sixes in his 31.
The helmet hides the face of Jimmy Kuntze who played steadily for 24 in Souths’ total of 7/154
Experienced all-rounder Mat Finlay blasted 33 from just 17 deliveries!
Umpire Phil Leonard raises his arms to the exasperation of bowler Alex Orth!
Riley Keen grabbed 2/21 to including the key scalp of Souths former Country opener, Mitch Bower, for 31. Experienced Colts duo Chris Morton (keeping) and Wes Giddings are ready to pounce on an edge. Umpire Phil Leonard is keeping a close eye on the paceman.
