The Un­der 14 Lak­ers mis­sion of chas­ing down the tar­get of 152 set by the Greta/Be­nalla com­bi­na­tion started very well with both open­ers play­ing their roles su­perbly.

Tom Lovel and Caleb Tanner bat­ted with great de­ter­mi­na­tion and grit as they faced qual­ity bowl­ing from the op­po­si­tion. They man­aged to see off the open­ing bowlers in their 31 run part­ner­ship be­fore Lovel was bowled for five.

Beau Birks who despatched his first ball to the bound­ary joined Tanner and the pair kept the score tick­ing along nicely un­til Tanner was caught for a well made 19.

Jack Costi­gan came to the crease and was un­luck­ily dis­missed by a sharp catch. It was then Harry Barker’s turn to bat and he was pro­gress­ing nicely con­tribut­ing 11 be­fore be­ing dis­missed try­ing to in­crease the run rate.

With the re­quired tar­get get­ting close to five an over Dil­lon Kirchen made a quick fire 10, in­clud­ing 2 bound­aries and with Birks still at the crease any­thing was pos­si­ble un­til he was dis­missed with the score on 99.

Jesse McDon­ald (4no) was also look­ing com­fort­able be­fore the Greta/Be­nalla out­fit rein­tro­duced their open­ing bowlers to knock over the re­main­ing bats­man for 107 runs.

A spe­cial thank you to both Jodie Lovel and Zach Moore for their help on the day.
