Solid Shoal­wa­ter blunt Hor­nets sting in dis­ci­plined win

Southern Telegraph - - Sport - Rock­ing­ham Mayor Barry Sam­mels is pre­sented with the plaque from un­der-14s cap­tain John San­ders and vice-cap­tain Mitch Field.

A big week for ju­niors at the Hill­man Cricket Club started last Wed­nes­day with a visit from Rock­ing­ham Mayor Barry Sam­mels.

The Hill­man ju­niors pre­sented Cr Sam­mels with a plaque thank­ing the City of Rock­ing­ham for its on­go­ing sup­port in­clud­ing re­cent up­grades and oval main­te­nance.

Satur­day’s un­der-14s top of the ta­ble clash be­tween the Hor­nets and Shoal­wa­ter took place at Shoal­wa­ter Oval, the home of the Hor­nets who won the toss and put Shoal­wa­ter into bat.

Both sides were look­ing ner­vous, how­ever Shoal­wa­ter shook off the nerves faster than their op­po­nents.

Solid bat­ting per­for­mances from Nathan Goodrick, with 33, Nathan Nolan, (26 not out), and Pa­tric

Pic­ture: Neil Cough­lin Ram­sey (17), set up Shoal­wa­ter’s over­all score of all out for 132 off their 33 overs.

Best bowler for Hor­nets was Ben Has­son with 2-17.

Hor­nets went into bat but strug­gled from the out­set with only three bats­men get­ting starts; skip­per John San­ders (27), Mitch Field (12) and Ben Has­son (10). The Hor­nets were all out for 69. Shoal­wa­ter’s Izack Unuwia had the im­pres­sive fig­ures of 3-0 off four overs with Pa­trick Ram­sey chip­ping in with 2-17.

Two Hor­nets ju­niors also rep­re­sented the Rock­ing­ham Man­durah Dis­trict Cricket Club in the un­der-13s and un­der-14s sides.

In RMDCC’s un­der-14s game against Wil­let­ton, Ben Has­son took 5-11 to se­cure a win for RMDCC while John San­ders, for un­der 13s, made 91 runs as well as tak­ing 2-13, again se­cur­ing a win for Rock­ing­ham Man­durah.

This week the Hor­nets un­der-14s are at home against Se­cret Har­bour Dock­ers Ju­nior Cricket Club White.
