The Yar­ra­wonga Mul­wala Lak­ers Un­der 16’s con­tin­ued their un­beaten start to the sea­son with a solid 3 wicket vic­tory of De­latite on a glo­ri­ous Sun­day af­ter­noon at Stan Har­g­reaves Oval.

Dy­namic All-Rounder Jyda House was the star of the game with 3 wick­ets bet­tered only by a classy in­di­vid­ual field­ing per­for­mance to break an im­por­tant part­ner­ship set­ting the plat­form for vic­tory. House bowled tight line and length through­out his spell and was ably sup­ported by open­ing bowlers Rory Bartlett and Josh McCabe who had the De­latite bats­men in early trou­ble at 4 for 21.

It a was a solid 42 overs in the field for the Lak­ers but each player had strong en­ergy in the field and en­cour­aged the bowlers.

Austin Wil­let con­tin­ues to bowl his off spin to per­fec­tion whilst come­back kid Will Con­nell bowled a tight line and length.

Set the task of chas­ing down 144 the bats­men went about their busi­ness with lit­tle fuss, Zac Fraser and Jobe Kennedy scored freely early be­fore young left han­der Zac Banch took the game away from the bowlers with fault­less 53 not out (63 balls).

Banch hit 6 bound­aries across all parts of the ground, his run­ning be­tween the wick­ets and in­tent to score was a real fea­ture of his game.

Jobe Kennedy open­ing the bat­ting for the first time all sea­son played su­perbly for his 45 run, he kept out the good ball and pun­ished any­thing that was short out­side the off stump.

Cap­tain Os­car Wil­lis bat­ted well for his 19 runs to en­sure the team passed the to­tal safely, Hud­son Gil­lies also demon­strated his power with some strong shots on the leg side.

Spe­cial thanks to the par­ents for their af­ter­noon tea spread (best in the com­pe­ti­tion) and also to Brett Wilis who cooked up a great BBQ lunch for the play­ers and fam­i­lies to en­joy.

Also men­tion to the club cu­ra­tors who put in the ex­tra work to en­able the young crick­eters to play in such good con­di­tions.

Scores – Yar­ra­wonga 7 for 162 (Banch 53*, Kennedy 45, Wil­lis 19) de­feated De­latite 8 for 144 (House 3 for 23, McCabe 1 for 16, Ed­nie 1 for 11, Bartlett 1 for 25)

Award Win­ners: ONE ZACH award – Zac Banch. Yar­ra­wonga Mul­wala Gold Club Re­sort – Jyda House
