Congratulations to our latest Senior champions, our VTCA North West B2 team, beating Williamstown CYMS with a terrific batting, bowling and fielding effort. Great work Cala, Rory, Alf, Westy, Brayden, Blakey, Russell, Jayden, Bushy, Jimmy, Madu and Wally.
After a shaky start losing early wickets, Rory (40), Cala (46) and a late innings cameo form Jayden (18) got us back on track to post 176 in the first innings. Jayden then ripped through the opposition taking 7/31/24, assisted by Madu 1/10/10, Jimmy 2/11/8 and some great catches in the field, leaving CYMS bowled out for 97. Our second innings started similar to our first but Alf (33), Madu (25), Rory (18) and Cala (18) pushed us to 109, 188 runs in front. Because of the rain delays CYMS hasd limited overs to make the runs so came out swinging, but our bowlers and fielders were up to the task again bowling CYMS out for 41 in 19 overs. Wickets taken by Wally 4/14/7, Jayden 3/19/6.2 and Madu 2/3/3.
Reading the paragraph above it is easy to guess the winner of the best afield medallion: Jayden Tapner taking 10 wickets and looking pretty handy with the bat for a number 11.
And don’t forget our Senior Presentation Night: 6pm Saturday 14 April 2018 at the Duke of Edinburgh we’re celebrating a great year for all our Senior players, team and supporters.
