Round 4 Week 2 Results | 2019/20
THIS WEEKS SCORES:
A GRADE: Round 4 vs ICC Sharks at home
After having ICC 1/23 overnight, tight bowling from Jacob and Kingsley built pressure and led to consistent wickets throughout the day. An even contribution from our bowlers and tight fielding this week helped us bowl ICC out for 113. An important win against the reigning premiers and we look forward to play Keswick on turf next week.
With the ball:
Handke 2/23 from 13
Smith 1/11 from 9
Saunders 2/21 from 11
Kanck 2/22 from 7
Venning 1/7 from 7
Ferris 2/10 from 6
B GRADE: B Grade Round 4
Chasing 170 we were confident that we could chase it down. Unfortunately the wickets fell regularly with our highest partnership being only 12 runs. Laurence Borda looked good, top scoring with 19 from 31 balls before he was stumped. Whilst the team showed good fight with the bat we weren’t able to tick the runs over dismissed for 83 runs from 43 overs. Lots of work to do to be a competitive side this season.
C GRADE: C Grade vs St George week 2.
After setting a respectable total of 223 tight bowling and fielding would see us with a win. The first 20 overs didn’t go to plan with the opposition 0 for 104 with one of the openers playing very attacking cricket. I urged the lads at drinks to keep fighting and that we did. The opener made 126 and was finally dismissed by Jarryd Simister from a diving leg side catch by the keeper when the total was 188. We ended up taking 8 wickets in the session and the St George total was 8 for 195 after 40 overs at tea. The game was in the balance with the opposition requiring 29 to win and us needing 2 wickets. A fantastic 2nd spell from Brayden Woodroofe saw him take 3 of the last 4 wickets all bowled and Jarryd Simister another bowled dismissing St George for 207 in the 44th over being 16 short of our total ! A fantastic hard fought win with contributions from everyone. Best with the bat AOK 47, Handke 27, Simister 22 and JT 20. Best with the ball Woodroofe 3 for 24 off 6.5, Simister 3 for 32 of 10 and Alex Strauss 2 for 50 of 8. Special thanks to Michael Sadler for sub fielding at short notice.
D GRADE: Game today was played in perfect conditions as the Ramblers chased ICC Sharks 215.
Croft went early to a great ball LBW after a solid start to the day batting with his skipper. It would be a wicket we couldn’t afford. Louis Riley one of our young under 16 batted very well for 6 runs facing around 28 balls against some seriously good bowling. Unfortunately Jayden Rea went next ball with another ripper and we were in some trouble. Payne also worked hard and looks an all round talent and Josh Okeefe steadied the ship soaking up balls.
McNicholas batted as well as I have seen him and although making just three runs he faced a lot of balls and has tightened his technique. Vansh Sekhon also formed a partnership with his skipper but was bowled when he looked to be getting comfortable. Tom Donnelly came to the wicket just prior to the last session and made a very tidy 20 including a towering six off the ICC skipper. Sarovic followed but was stumped and the day finished with the team around 50 runs behind. Ramblers all out for 165.
There was plenty to like about the performance particularly with the ball, pegging back an imposing start from the opposition.
Thanks to Daz Riley for umpiring your help is much appreciated and once again thanks to our big crowd of parents.
Practice hard during the week fellows a win is just around the corner. Go Ramblers
E GRADE: E grade Report. Defending 203 runs that were made last week, Plympton Footballers came out with a hard hitting approach wanting to make the runs quickly. That they did passing our total in the 32nd over. Highlights with the ball were Zac Howell again bowling well finishing with 3/41, and Alex Manning 1/25 off 8 overs. Ramblers bowled hard but were over powered by the Footballers who are undefeated thus far.
Under 16’s: Day 2 saw us back at the crease with 49 overs left to chase down Flaggy’s 143 from last week. With both openers not out after 1 over from the previous week we were in a good position to steadily work our way to the target. It didn’t start well with both openers caught early for 2 runs each and we were 2/8 in the 5th over. Josh Payne and Aaron Thompson in at 3 and 4 then started to steady the ship with some excellent batting before Aaron fell on 25 to a sharp catch. With Josh retired from 10 overs, Ben Wender and Luis came to the crease and took us to 3/74 in the first session. Some excellent batting followed in the second session and we put on another 48 runs for no loss. 3/122, needing 22 to win the match with 16 overs and 5 wickets in hand. Similar to a couple of weeks ago we then lost a few wickets cheaply and Flaggy had their tails up when they had us 4/139, 5/140 and 6/143 which included a massive 6 from Joel off the first ball he faced. Luis and Ryan combined to put on the winning runs before Ryan went with the score on 151 then Luis and Jayden took the score to 158 when Luis was caught off a mistimed shot from a slower ball.
Batting today, Ben Kean and Ashley on 2, Josh 16, Aaron 25, Ben Wender 22, Luis 19, Ryan 18, Joel 7 and Jayden 9no. The boys batted exceptionally well in a great team effort and most spent quality time at the crease. Well done lads. 2 wins in a row now in similar circumstances gives them the confidence to be competitive against all opposition this season. Cheers and see you at the cricket, Daz
Under 14’s: What a wonderful morning for cricket at Weymouth Oval! The Under 14 Ramblers were ready to go out and bat and their opposition, Coromandel Valley Red, were ready to bowl. An early wicket set the fielding tongues wagging, but silence gradually descended, as the Ramblers batsmen slowly gained the upper hand in the run chase.Every batsman tried to value their wicket, and the calling for runs was pretty loud and clear. And so to the nitty gritty details! First cab off the rank is Jaccssen whose strike rate of 240.00 may cause some of the seniors to reflect on past glories (or not!). His 4 boundaries and 1 six, plus 2 singles for a total of 24 runs off 10 balls, had his team mates cheering from the sidelines! Well done to Thom with 24 runs (off 26 balls), who retired not out, Gabe with 29 (off 29balls), and Liam with 29 (off 35 balls), who also retired not out. In fact, I feel the whole team deserve a mention, for their batting and support of their team mates. We did have a little assistance in the run chase in the extras area, but to their credit, our opposition did put in a good effort. Coromandel Valley Ramblers 196 (37.4 overs), Coromandel Valley Red 8/152 (40 overs). We have a T20 match on Friday, but then have the next two Sundays off with the bye. All the best to the other Ramblers’ teams next week!
Under 12’s: This week the U12’s played Port Noarlunga Gold at Seaford Primary School. This weeks captain (Euan Beavan) lost the toss and the opposition decided to bat first. The boys were able to restrict the runs off the bat, with some tight bowling and really good fielding. We were able to restrict the opposition to 72 runs off 30 overs. Best of the bowlers this week were Jacob and Callum, both taking 2 wickets. Aarnav and Rohan also did a great job, taking 1 wicket each.
The outfield was really slow and boundaries were hard to come by, but the boys played some really good partnerships. It was great to see, when we did lose wickets, the boys knuckled down and got the innings back on track. We were able to finish the game with 119 runs.
Top scorers with the bat this week were Jacob 25no and Euan 15no*
Under 10’s: It was another great day out for the Ramblers against Coromandel.
The sun was out and we welcomed back Elliot from his injury.
Some stellar performances saw the Ramblers on top until the last 4 overs.
James had a fantastic day with the bat making 17 runs including 3 fours. All the batters had some good solid hits and we saw brave running between the wickets. Archie had the second highest score with 10 runs.
Bonnie bowled a lovely line and was rewarded with 2 wickets. Dylan, Eamonn and Vevan also took a wicket each.
Fielding was top notch with good back ups and Dylan had two great runouts.
Final score Coromandel 8/103 | Ramblers 9/88
