2nd XI Match Report
SPC Blue 3/132 defeated SPC White 10/121
SPC Blue make it three in a row and have set the Second XI BAS Cricket competition on fire. Electing to bowl first SPC Blue openers Ben Hutt and Tom Godson were both able to capture three wickets a piece in well controlled bowling spells. Hutt took 3/8 off 4 overs whilst Godson took 3/24 off his 4 overs. Mitch Tuddenham chimed in with two wickets after bowling well all season he was now able to reap the rewards collecting 2/24 off 4 overs. Josh Findlay also bowled very tightly to remove 2/4 off 1 over. Despite completely removing the SPC White side a score of 121 was always going to be a difficult run chase on the magnificent Hill Oval wicket. Richy Dell again opened strongly scoring 43 but it was chief wicket taker Ben Hutt who was able to score a well-deserved 52 N/O and Tom Godson 10 N/O to see SPC Blue remain undefeated going into the Christmas break in the Second XI BAS Cricket competition.
From the SPC White side of it:
Dylan Davies stood out with the bat, using a range of both orthodox and unorthodox shots to smash 38 runs. He was assisted through the middle order by Riley Hucker (16) and Jeremy Learmonth (14) and then at the end with John Brodie picking up 10. With the ball the standouts were Riley Hucker (1/16 off 3) and Dylan Davies (1/4 off 1). Missed opportunities in the field, mixed with some wayward bowling ultimately proving costly.
2nd XI White vs Green Match Report
These two titans of SPC cricket had the honour of playing on the Main oval this week. The Green team won the toss and elected to bowl. After twenty overs of hard toil, they may have regretted this decision. The White team openers- both carried their bats through the innings, compiling- runs- with aplomb.- Pat Keogh notched up his 50- early in the- final over,- before Liam Fisher swung lustily to bring up his 100- on the final ball of the innings. Quite a climax! The Green team worked hard to compile a- creditable 110 before succumbing to the White bowlers in the 19th over. Liam Fisher nearly stole the limelight again: after two consecutive wickets, his hat trick ball did everything except hit the wickets!
A good game of cricket all around, with some great efforts by some inexperienced Green players. A good conclusion to the first part of the season.
