JUNIOR CRICKET

JUNIOR cricketers took to the field again on Friday afternoon with the under-13s playing an eight a side game where the Hawks battled the Taipans.

Hawks batted first and made four for 86 from their allotted time at the crease.

Blake Hardy-Young top scored with 29 retired and Howard McDonald made 13. Matthew Hansen, Joe Wilson and Darcy Larkin all took a wicket and one run out was affected.

The Taipans started well but Hawks fought back with some quick wickets to limit the Taipans to five for 67.

Rhys Fuhrmann had 21 and Darcy Larkin scored eight before retiring while Warrick Watts took two wickets and Matthew Shoebridge, Jason Prince and Jayden Lane all had one each.

Nine under-10s battled for individual supremacy in the other game with each player facing 20 deliveries and bowling three overs.

117 runs in total were scored by the nine players with Toby Craig on 23, Eran Kirkpatrick on 17, Zac Maynard and Jackson Crossley on 15, Jack Dwyer on 16, Theo Brown on 6, Cameron Shearer on 2, Talin Mackay on 9 and Cooper Lane on 14.

Have-A-Goers and Have-A-Gamers had an action packed afternoon of modified games and drills aimed at improving their cricket skills.

Next Friday will be the last week of cricket until Friday, January 25.
