Weekend Wrap vs. Perth (Rd1)

In a soggy first fixture against Perth there was not much good news for the Roos, so let’s just focus on Jared Maunders dynamic 6 wicket haul.

1st Grade

Play abandoned

2nd Grade

Coming up against a strong Perth Team for the first game of the year, the ‘Magoos’ fell short by 80 runs in the chase. Perth set the tone with a 172 run 2nd wicket partnership, which allowed them to push hard late – scoring 148 runs in their last 20 overs. Michael Herbst picked up three wickets in his debut at that level (including a not-at-all controversial caught behind off his 2nd ball) while Gary Dixon wound back the years (as well as the surprise by some teammates) to impress with 7 tidy overs. In the run-chase Perth hit their lengths with a ring-field, forcing errors and taking consistent wickets. Riley Holly top scored with 34.

3rd Grade

Play abandoned

4th Grade

In Liam’s first game as the benevolent dictator (captain) he won the toss and chose to bat. Unfortunately no one could get going with only Lachie Henderson and Nick Santich providing resistance in the middle order. After getting bowled out for 107, Jared ‘Juice’ Maunder led the charge with 6 wickets and a magnificent catch. He was well supported by Saleem ‘the human salad’ Ahmed’s 2 wickets as well as tight bowling from Tyler ‘Hammer and’ Ong. Great effort to take the game down to the wire but unfortunately the total was chased down with 2 wickets in hand.
