Round 3 Results | 2019/20
THIS WEEK’S RESULTS:
A GRADE: Round 3 vs Plympton Away Week 1
Losing the toss we were sent into field on a shocking surface as Plympton had just completed works on their oval.
Handke bowled his best in the A grade and finished with 2/28 from 13 overs.
Kingsley and Fabian bowled very very but took some stick later on in the innings when the number 8 peeled off 52 quick runs with some very clean hitting – K Smith 2/49 from 13 overs and F Saunders 2/51 from 13 overs.
Kanck fell victim to the uneven surface and tried both ends and finished 7 overs 0/21.
Both chump spinners, Work 2/10 and Ferris 2/31, finished the innings and Plympton were all out for 193 leaving 14 overs to bat the day out.
Haussen with 4 x catches.
After facing 14 overs to finish the day Ramblers are 1/22 with Rosman in the sheds for 19 runs.
B GRADE: We decided to bowl on a slow Hawthornedene outfield. Southern’s top-order looked solid but we were able to dismiss one of their openers via a Laurence Borda direct hit run-out, which was quickly followed by another couple of wickets. We had them on the ropes at 4/53 but to their credit they dug in and got to 4/138, before we were able to go through them, all out 144. Best with the ball were Zac Venning 5 overs 3/23, Alex Buersch 11 overs 2/18, Charlie Whitfeld 9 overs 2/28. Special mention to Zac Venning for another direct hit run-out, and to Liam Benson (11 years old) for sub-fielding for Will Baird who hurt his back bowling 1-over. The game is there for us to win this week.
C GRADE: The C grade were up against Adelaide Lutheran at Weymouth. After winning the toss for the 3rd straight game we decided to send the Adelaide Lutheran in for a bat. Tight and accurate bowling from the opening bowlers from ball one particularly Jeremy Rochow saw us take control of the game early having the opposition at 4 for 16 in the 7th over. Jez bowled 7 overs and took 3 for 7, outstanding performance and reward for hard work. On came JT who was rewarded for bowling full to continue our demolition of the opposition taking a lazy 5 for 15 off 5.1 overs. Jarrad Simister and Alex Strauss also took a wicket each and bowled well. All out for 61. We had 33 overs to bat and passed their total 2 down in the19th over. We finished at 4 for 117 at the end of the day and will be looking for an outright next week. Best with the bat Andrew O’keefe 36no, Strunky 28, Gaza Handke 22.
D GRADE: A special day for our skipper playing his 450th game was kicked off by Wayne Jones giving a talk about Steve to the team.
Steve promptly lost the toss and was sent in to bat against an experienced Warradale outfit.
Openers Travis Croft and Jarred Blenkinsop strode to the wick on the back of their 80 plus partnership from last week. The bowling was tight and tough and the lawn long and thick, it was certainly challenging.
Both lads did very well yet gave some chances trying to force the pace a little. Both would survive to the 20 over mark. The score was 27. A discussion about placement and running and the boys came out firing. Jarred was eventually out for 41 in the 39th over 1/98. Gringo Brodie came out to support Travis and made a good 28 before he was run out with just 4 overs to go.
Travis’s fine innings unfortunately came to an end with 4 balls of the inning to go backing up for 94. This lad has tonnes of promise and a great temperament and will be a top order batsmen in the A grade in the near future. Travis was exhausted after a fine knock.
Young Louis Riley made 5 at the end and also looks comfortable at the crease as an under 16. The Ramblers have some great talent coming through the ranks.
Final score 3/187
Thanks to Peter Blenkinsop for scoring and Daz Riley for assisting with some umpiring. Thanks also to Julie Croft for making a delicious afternoon tea.
E GRADE: Winning the toss we decided to bowl first as South Rd only had eight players for the day. We were hoping to bowl them out early and have a bat. However one batsman made some runs (90) and caused the innings to drag out. We took seven wickets in the 57th over ending their innings and the day’s play. Final score at 7/147.
We bowled well and kept pressure on the batsman by bowling full and at the wicket. Wicket takers were Joel Bates (3/26 off 7overs), Ashley Bates (2/5 off 7.4overs), Ben Kean (1/13 off 9overs) and Alex Manning (1/17 off 5overs). Zac Howell did well (0/7 off 5overs). Jesse Hughes, Jordan Rowley and Brian Bates all bowled economically but without
success. Poor Chilly got smacked about in his 3overs for 26runs. Ramblers fielded well all day with Jordan and Ricko taking two catches each. Pleasing effort as we stayed focused, waiting for that sharp catch.
Patient batting this Saturday should see us over the line for our second win. Go ramblers, Chilly.
UNDER 16’s: A fine start to the morning but a wet field greeted us for our first Home game at Hawthorndene oval against Mitchell Park. Mitchell Park won the toss and decided to bat. We started with a wicket to Aaron in the opening over to a sharp catch from the sub. Our lads bowled and fielded well and the wickets started to tumble and we soon had them reeling at 6/39 in the 12th over thanks to catches to Aaron with 2 Ryan 1 another to a sub and a direct hit runout by Joel. The first session ended at 6/55 and in the second session we managed to have them at 9/84 with a rain delay in there as well. After that is was all hard work as the wet ball, slippery runup and wet outfield all took their toll and try as we might we just couldn’t nail that last wicket with Mitchell Park 9/145 after 50 overs.
A great effort by the lads to restrict MP to a score we can play to next week. Bowlers today, Jadyn was excellent with 3/16, Aaron 2/18, Ryan 1/8, Ashley 1/17, Luis 1/37 and everyone else bowling tight, Joel 0/3, Ben W 0/8, Josh 0/9 and Ben K 0/12 from 7 very sharp overs. It was a great team effort and fantastic to see the lads support for each other during a long morning in the field. Cheers and see you at the cricket. Daz
UNDER 14’s: What a chilly (FREEZING!) day greeted the two teams! Coromandel Valley Cricket Club’s Green team won the toss and elected to bat. The Ramblers’ voices were up in the field and the wickets managed to fall at fairly regualr intervals. After 36 overs (with 4 overs lost due to a rain interruption), they finished with 7/148. If catches win matches, then our team may be in with a chance! Josh M.’s safe hands caught 3, and Michael and James caught one each. Some sharp fielding by Thomas ensured a run out, and Gabe rattled the stumps as he clean bowled someone! In fact Gabe finished with 6 overs, 1 maiden, 3 wickets for 12 runs. No balls were a bit of a factor in the extras tally, but the bowling is definately tightening up. Live scoring worked well, and all 3 scorers tallied exactly at the end!! Hope the weather is a little warmer next Sunday!
UNDER 12’s: This week the U12s played Flagstaff Hill Blue at Weymouth Oval. The captain (Callum Hunter) lost the toss and the opposition decided to bowl first.
Everyone batted really well spending plenty of time in the middle with some great partnerships and cracking shots being played. Highest scorers this week Charlie Fisher 29, Euan Beavan 25no, Henry Dunk 22no and James Murphy 19no. We were able to make 3-211 off 30 Overs.
The Boys were super confident heading out into the field after posting such a big total. The bowling was super impressive with a good spread off wicket takers again. The boys bowled a tight line and length with stumps being knock over continuously. We were able to bowl Flagstaff out for 48 runs off 18.5 overs with the standout bowler Callum Hunter 3/7 off 2.5 overs.
A really impressive team effort with both bat and ball this week, even the rain didn’t stop play! Winning 3/211 to 48
UNDER 10’s: The captain (Mitch) won the toss for the Ramblers and sent Morphetville Park Red in to bat.
First time wicketkeepers Eamonn and Vevan did a great job and James had a fantastic day with a catch and bowl, a wicket and a run out.
Archie was top of the bowlers with 3 wickets (3/11). Dylan took a good catch and Bonnie bowled beautifully and was rewarded with a wicket and a maiden over.
Our batters had a tough time scoring runs against a good fielding side.
Bonnie and James worked well together running between the wickets and Bonnie top scored with 6 runs.
It was good to see the players feeling more comfortable with the bat, especially Archie and Jasper who protected their wickets well.
Both sides lost 7 wickets but Morphetville was able to run more between the wickets and won the day with 7/110 against 7/70.
