The semis will not be until the end of January.

Week 7 - Bluesweep #3

To wrap up the One-day series (1st - 4th grades) we were up against Norths. While their
1st and 2nd grade teams were at the wrong end of the table, their 3rd and 4th grade teams
were doing well and sat in 1st place.

1st grade - Norths won the toss and batted first and compiled a competitive 9/187 (TVL 3/40
and Marky 3/24). Our chase got off to a steady start but from 0/61 we slumped to 6/122 but
an unbeaten partnership between Leigh (85 no) and Brad (40 no) got us home with plenty of
overs to spare.

2nd grade - Being inserted after Norths won the toss, we lost early wickets to be 4/30. Bushy
and Brad steadied the ship and we moved to 6/93 when Brad was dismissed. The a partnerhip
of 80 between Tristan and Cam got us to 7/173. The tail wagged a bit and we finished with 213.

Norths in response lost a couple of early wickets then steadied to take the score to 2/73. From
there on, everytime Norths looked like putting a partnership together, we managed to break it
and in the end we bowled them out for 165 with Stach taking 3/22.

3rd grade - Norths won the toss and had no hesitation in inviting us to bat first on a pretty
underdone KT pitch. We struggled on the pitch that was two paced and at 8/99 it was not looking
good. However Dom had other ideas and began to take the Norths attack apart. Thanks to a
fighting 61, we manage to post a competitive score of 168. Norths got off to a steady start but
we then bagged 3 wicket to have then 3/35. The put together some minor partnerships, but we
hung in there and were picking wickets up regularly. Things were looking good with them 9/123
but a defient last wicket stand nearly got them home, but our bowlers bowled very good line well
backed up by our fielders. Needing 20 runs off the final over, they could only manage a handful
and they finished 9/155 (Felix 3/41).

4th grade - The coin came down our way and we duly batted compiling 6/177 (R Ditton 51,
Fahzey 37 & Jono 35). Our bowlers did a great job and their line was impecible and gave nothing
away. Northies at time seemed unable to hit the ball off the square and we held them to 7/130
(Khye 2/20 & Jenno 2/32).

5th grade - Brunks won the toss and chose to bat first. It was not a great effort, apart from
Yippa (48) our of 138, but it was a difficult pitch to bat on. ANU chase did not start all that great
and at one stage were 4/32 then 7/64. Their last 4 batsmen put a bit of respectibility in their score,
but we bowled them out for 110. Jake (3/15) and Jimmy (3/16) did most of the damage. Reports
indicate that the match was not played in the right spirit and there were a couple of ugly incidents.

Week 5 - Another Bluesweep and Memorable Moments

Taking on Eastlake in 1st to 4th grades with 5th grade up against North Blue, all 5 grades records
good wins and plenty of bonus points as well.

1st grade - After bowling Eastlake out for 116 (Vele 4/21 & Jack 3/28) there were a few nervous
moments in chasing Eastlake's modest total. We lost 5-46 and then were 6-76 before Marky and
Jimmy D got us home for a bonus point win.

2nd grade - Piled on the runs at Kingston to record another double bonus point win. Batting first we
scored 303, with Jack top scoring with 87 (2nd 80 in a row) with able support from the Moore brothers
(Brad 61, Phil 48). In reply we bowled Eastlake out for 117 with Oli taking 5-18.

3rd grade -Winning the toss Eastlake had no hesitation in batting first and finished with 7-167. Wickets
were shared with Harry 3-38 and Cam 2-26 the pick of the bowlers. In reply while the run rate was on
the mark, wickets fell regulary and we were struggling a bit at 6-63, but with Sol guiding the tail, we
passed their score in the 38th over. Batting honours to Rory O with 41 and Sol 41.

4th grade - Chook won the toss and had no hesitation in batting. Despite an early wickets, the runs
flowed freely and we compiled 4/227 with Chook 74no, Jono 56 and Abdul 48 no. In reply the bowlers
did their job and we bowled Eastlake out for 116 with Micah taking 4-22 with Khye, Will and Rory
taking 2 each. We just missed out on a double bonus point win by 3 runs.

5th grade - Brunks won the toss he duly invited Norths to have a bat. At the end of their ininning
they had score 8-118 with Cluggo taking 4-20 with Jimmy 2-6. Our chase did not start well, losing
3 early wickets but contributions from Brunks 32, Thornie 23 and Steve 22 were enough to get us
home inside 26 overs. Final score 7-119
