On Friday night the Under 12s travelled to Rutherglen to play against Rutherglen Blue.
After losing the toss and being sent out to field in freezing conditions, Xavier Mitchell took the new ball and soon found his rhythm bowling a maiden to start, he finished with 2/0 off his three overs.
Nate Kreeck and Axel Saunders bowled well through the middle part of the innings picking up 3 wickets between them to limit the scoring.
Declan Wood and Van Kreeck continued this into the end of Rutherglen’s innings collecting a wicket each which put the brakes on the Rutherglen batsman who finished 7/61.
It was then Yarrawonga Mulwala’s turn to bat with Nate Kreeck and Xavier Mitchell opening and getting off to a good start before losing Nate Kreeck when the score was 17.
Not long after Xavier Mitchell was run out with the score 2/17.
Levi Saunders and Will Murphy then came in and steadied the ship with Will Murphy retiring.
With the score 4/31 after Axel Saunders was bowled Declan Wood and Lachlan Johnson came together and pushed the score to 42 before Declan Wood was bowled.
Van Kreeck was next in and scored quickly, and along with Lachlan Johnson pushed the score past the required 61 to record their first win this season.
Lachlan Johnson was finally out which bought Zach Wheeler to the crease in his first game who showed he has some skill to offer and along with Van Kreeck they saw out the end of the overs with Van Kreeck 23 not out and Zach Wheeler 5 not out with the score finishing 6/90.
It was a great team effort by the boys and a special mention to Levi Saunders and Will Murphy who both did a fantastic job wicket keeping.
