Round 5 Week 1 | Results
THIS WEEKS SCORES:
A GRADE: Round 5 vs Keswick away.
Losing the toss we were sent into the field with a very lifeless foreign pitch (turf) for us to bowl on.
Handke got us off to a perfect start getting one of the opening batsmen with the score 1/8 – from there they went on to establish a good partnership with the next wicket not falling until the score was over 100.
A horrific day in the field for the Ramblers with the team dropping a combined 10 catches as the only thing that saves us from a monster score was a fantastic second spell from Handke finishing the match with 6/48.
Thanks to Jacob, Keswick finished all out for 200 after being 2/152.
Having to face 1 over at the end of the day the Ramblers are 0/1.
Standouts with the ball
Handke – 21 overs, 6 maidens, 6/48
Ferris – 17 overs, 5 maidens, 3/37
N Work – 5 overs, 1/15
This will be a tough challenge for us as we are yet to make score north of 170 this year.
B GRADE: B grade Round 5
We were sent in to bat and after 20 overs were 3/50. The next session AOK and Jarrad B put on a 79 run 4th wicket partnership before AOK was out to a sharp catch in gully for 39 (51). Jarrad B and Matt Treloar then put on a 59 run 5th wicket partnership before Jarrad B was dismissed for 65 from 83 balls, and Matt fell shortly after for 37 from 34 balls. Jarryd Simister and Tyson Clark then combined for a 79 run 7th wicket partnership. Clark batted his role very well, hitting 24 from 32 balls, and Jarryd smashed 51 from 30 balls before being run out. We finished on 7/288- our best batting effort thus far this season.
D GRADE: Playing a senior cricket team like Fitzroy with a grade cricketers was always going to be difficult for the young Ramblers squad .
Early we were up and about with Jarred Blenkinsop bowling a wonderful sustained spell of quality medium pace bowling. Following instruction we pushed Jarred to bowl his fifteen overs unrested. Jarred was on a hat Trick at one point clean bowling both batsmen and he ended with 2/25. OKeefe bowled some good overs as did a improved Sarovic who took a wicket and was again unlucky not to have more. One of Fitzroys A graders took to a couple of our young bowlers but they certainly stuck to their task.
Young Louis Riley was a standout bowling leg spin and taking two wickets with some mature overs and never afraid to keep tossing the ball up. Wender also looks an all rounder in the making with a good spell and taking one wicket.
The fielding was great all day and I was pleased with the way the lads handled themselves. Young Daz I’ve never had a soft tissue injury Riley looked spiritedly in the field until jagging a hamstring.
With nine overs to face and chasing 260 we are none for 18. Openers Croft and Blenkinsop doing a great job for the team once again.
Croft also took the reigns as skipper for much of the game and addressed the lads at the breaks. I am very impressed with the way Travis goes about his business.
Practice hard fellows we have a big task next week.
E GRADE: This week the E Grade travelled up the road to play Keswick’s D Grade side at Blackwood High School. We won the toss and elected to bat. The instructions to the guys was to make sure we bat the day out but unfortunately we lost early wickets and lost Justin Rowley to another calf injury. This left us 3 down and Justin of injured which saw Jordan Rowley and Joel Bates come together. The two young men batted for long time without making too many runs but they did their jobs by occupying the crease. Jordan’s innings came to an end when he was bowled for 18. Joel hung around for a while longer ending up on 11. There was some good shots played by the tail but unfortunately most of us were dismissed softly throughout the day ending our innings on 88.
Going out into the field the instructions were to bowl tightly which saw a sharp catch by Rick Vale in the gully in the first over. The Keswick batsmen were playing their shots but brought down their downfalls by giving us some catching practice with Brian Bates taking 2 catches, 1 to Scott Brodie and Alex Manning having the dangerous Keswick Captain caught and bowled. The wicket takers were Michael Sadler with 2 and 1 each to Ashley Bates, Alex Manning, Jessie Hughes and a wicket to Joel Bates in the last over of the day to leave Keswick 6/47 at the end of the day. With Keswick only having 9 players on the first day hopefully we only need to take a few more wickets to win the game. A big thanks to 8 year old Eamonn Brodie for subfielding for Justin for the last 12 overs. Acting E Grade Captain, Scott Brodie
UNDER 16’s: Round 4 Day 1 v Coromandel Red at Blackwood Hill Oval.
On a beautiful morning for cricket we lost the toss and Coro sent us in to bat. After having successfully chased down scores in the past 2 games, batting first meant we needed to reset and pace our batting, setting a score to bowl to.
Coro’s openers bowled tightly with their 2nd and 3rd change bowlers removing both of our openers early and we were 2/16 in the 7th over. The captain then came to the crease and steadied the innings increasing the run rate with powerful yet controlled batting. With the loss of 1 more wicket we went to drinks at 3/64 from 20 overs. The lads knuckled down, protecting their wickets and with a runout and late wicket in the second session we were reasonably placed at 5/106. The final 15 overs saw some great batting for the loss of only one wicket as we batted out the 50 overs to finish on 6/171. A really good score, put together with patience, which gives our bowlers a great opportunity next week. Best of the batsmen this week were the Captain, Ben Wender with 63 no from 72 balls including a towering 6 off the last ball of the innings, Jayden Rea ( as stand in VC in Aaron’s absence, played beautifully, working singles all round the ground for 28 no from 58 balls and Ryan Drechsler 15 no from 46 balls. It was the best batting I’ve seen from all 3 lads as they valued their wickets and stayed away from rash shots. Well done boys and also to the rest of the side who all contributed to the score.
Cheers and see you at the cricket. Daz.
UNDER 14’s: Had a bye this round.
UNDER 12’s: What a perfect day for cricket. This week the U12’s played at Waymouth Oval against Flagstaff hill Red. This week’s captain (Josh Raymont) lost the toss and the opposition decided to bat first.
We got off to great start with the boys taking early wickets. We were really able to keep the runs down with a good line for bowling and good fielding. The boys decided they would like to bowl in two over spells which seemed to work really well on the weekend. We were able to keep Flagstaff to 5/94 off 30 overs. Best bowling this week goes to Henry Dunk and Aarnav Jain with 2 wickets each and James Murphy 1 wicket.
The boys batted exceptionally well this week. We only lost 1 wicket for the innings. There was some cracking shots played and good running and calling between the wickets. The team as a whole are beginning to bat really well. Top scorers this week for batting was Jackob Parle 29no, James Murphy 28no and Lachlan Martin 20no. We were able to make 1/203 off 27 overs’
UNDER 10’s: The U10s were at Seaford this weekend for our game against Port Noarlunga Pink. Another coin toss win for the Ramblers and the captain (Bonnie) elected to bowl.
The players continued to improve on their bowling and Bonnie, James and Vevan took a wicket each. Special mention to Jasper and Eamonn who are working hard on their bowling. Well done boys, your techniques are looking great.
Mitch and Archie is getting some nice speed on their bowling too. Solid fielding and good wicket keeping (Dylan and Elliot) restricted Noarlunga to 67 runs.
The coaches were impressed to see good running between wickets and grounding of bats. James and Dylan top scored with 13 runs (incl 2 fours) each and everyone protected their wickets well.
