U16 Reds V West Torrens – round 4

 General  Comments Off on U16 Reds V West Torrens – round 4
Nov 202016
 

Four games into the season and to date a total of 22 players have taken the field in the U16 reds. For this game we welcomed back some cricket firepower in Arham Hashmi, James Du Preez, and Christian Leddicoat from the seniors. West Torrens are a really good team that haven’t been able to win to date. We weren’t planning to be their first season scalp.

The team decision was to bowl first and although we lost the toss, West Torrens decision to bat gave us our choice on a classic warm afternoon just made for cricket. First over and James Du Preez struck with a magic first up delivery. From the other end Caleb Hoberg found rhythm and took a wicket thanks to a very sharp catch to Henry Rice at square leg.
All the bowlers did there job. In fact the ten wickets were shared amongst 6 bowlers. Darcy Hunkin continued his good form from the previous game taking 2/10 and taking his season tally to 12 wickets. Will Quigley Smith (2/19) took valuable middle order wickets and Caleb Hoberg finished with impressive figures of 2/4. James Du Preez was intimidating at times and finished with 2/16. 
The talk in the field was impressive and team work equally impressive. Special mention to Liam Nicol who was superb behind the stumps after being given a working over by our pace bowlers. His stumping to Will Quigley Smith was effortless.
West Torrens all out 70.

With a batting line up that went all the way down to 11, there weren’t to many worries from the sidelines chasing 70 to win. A very solid opening partnership between Arham and Peter Unerkov laid the batting foundation before Peter was out on the team score of 34. Christian Leddicoat joined  Arham at the crease and the two power hitters got us to 70 in the 15th over. Looking to push on we faltered losing some quick wickets and were suddenly 4/96. Arham Hashmi fell for 45 when he looked like a 100 was his for the day. We again lost some cheap middle order wickets and were 6/120 when the in form Henry Rice joined James Du Preez at the crease. The pair put on a brilliant 79 for the 7th wicket. Both players combined classic stroke play with the occasional power shot. James eventually fell on 59 off 63 deliveries and showed what a quality cricketer he is. Henry Rice finished on an outstanding 40* off 40 balls. With only 3x boundaries in his innings he has proven how easy it is to build a score  without always having to find the boundary. This was a classy effort. Our aim was for 200, and we made 206! Great effort. A big thank you to everyone on great team spirit and a positive attitude.
Overall Kensington reds remain in the top 4 – well done to everyone on a really good team effort. Enjoy the test match and the week off.

Hi All,

A bit of a messy week with some bizarre programing in the 2nd Grade, particularly for the Browns. After wash outs last week the girls are looking forward to getting out and playing in some nice weather.

!st Grade this week come up against Sturt at the home of cricket, Parkinson Oval. Great for the girls to get out on our main oval. It's a 50 Over game starting at 11:50, which means that players need to be ready to warm up by 11:00. Afternoon tea is needed this week, Sarah will, I'm sure, be sending out a list letting people know what to bring.

Sarah Lowe (C), Bridget Patterson, Katelyn Pope, Jordan Doecke, Shae Daly, Eliza Doddridge, Kelly Armstrong, Sophie Roberts, Sarah Ferris, Rachel Church, Sarah J Jameson

2nd Grade this week are playing double headers again, which i think is a great idea, but this week i'm not so certain it's been sorted out properly. ANYWAY, we do what we do. Game 1 this week starts at 11:00. Please remember to be organised with food and drinks this week as it is spread over a long period of time and there is no afternoon tea. Lauren may want to organise something for the Golds however as both their games are at Col Waite.

With the early start we do have some players who are still unsure about availability, please let me know if we have missed anyone and if you haven't let me know about availability please do so asap.

2nd Grade Golds V Northern Districts Blue at 11:00 at Col Waite, then 3:10 V Northern Orange.

Lauren Semmens (C), Jess Murray, Amy Kaesler, Olivia Mulvany, Ayisha Salah, Rebecca Drew (game 1 ?), Cassidy Perkins, Georgia Iannella, Maeve Edwards (Game 2)

2nd Grade Browns V West Torrens at Henley High at 11:00. Please be there early and ready to warm up. David Jones to manage game 1, but PLEASE can someone offer their help to score / manage / organise this week as i am unavailable. David is also not available for the whole of the 2nd Game. It can't be done by just 1 person.Game 2 is against PORT ADELAIDE at Eric Sutton which means piling into the cars and heading for the Port.(or Rosewater at least)

Emily Jones (C) (Game 1), Rebecca Cummings (VC) (C game 2), Bridee Tonkin, Sophi-Rose Green, Amelie Green, Ursula Gully, Samantha Tammitta, Jill Lamont, Tya Gonsalves

Messy I'm sorry, but it's the best we can do.

Again please let me know asap about availability and if you haven't been playing but feel like a game, players are always welcome.

Cheers,

Kevin, Ditts and Andy

Under 14 Whites vs Port Adelaide

It’s good to finally get a win, even if it is against another undermanned team. Knowing this we set about with a goal of only playing positive cricket with the objective of running hard and hitting hard without risk. This worked well only losing 3 wickets out of a total of 460 with one being a runout.  Numerous 50 plus retirements littered the scorecard but a special mention goes to Frank Packer who hit one of the biggest sixes in Under 14’s you will see.

                Our bowling was disciplined and with only 6 opposition batsmen turning up the second week it was a race against the weather to dismiss Port for 11 and 17 to secure outright points with Ishaan Oak and Seb McVann being standouts (sorry Reds you can’t have them). A commendation goes to all the boys from the Port coach who appreciated the spirit in which it was played and the positive encouragement that was shown to the Port boys by our team.

 

Kensington Under 14 Whites  460 (60 overs )   Felix Packer 75 ret ,   Alex Burgess 66

                                Defeated

U16 Reds V Port Adelaide – Round 3

 General  Comments Off on U16 Reds V Port Adelaide – Round 3
Nov 132016
 

Three games into the season and the Reds welcomed seven new players on Reds debut. The challenge sometimes in games you expect to win is that your work rate isn’t as high and there is an expectation that victory will just happen. That couldn’t be further from the truth in this game.

We talked of the potential for outright victory if we worked hard enough and achieved it in convincing style. Winning the toss Jack Konnis sent Port into bat and Caleb Hoberg got us off to a great start. He took two early wickets bowling great line and length and Port were 2/13. His second wicket saw a screaming catch taken overhead by Luke Pedlar at second slip. This lifted the team and set a really great tone. Every team needs a leader with the bat and also with ball. Darcy Hunkin has assumed the leadership role of the bowling attack and not to be outdone took two quick wickets. Max Floreani was very tight and was rewarded with a wicket and wild thing Sam Burgess when he wasn’t scaring the batsmen chipped in also. The last three wickets fell in 9 deliveries. Darcy got his third finishing with great figures of 3/11 of 9.5 overs. Will Quigley Smith took the last two to finish with 2/8. The team work and talk was impressive and seven of the nine wickets were bowled or LBW highlighting our bowling accuracy.

Chasing 63 runs with 41 overs left in the day we lost an early wicket and were 1/10. Luke Pedlar joined Peter Unerkov at the crease and the pair made batting look easy. When Luke fell to a full toss a mini collapse followed . Losing 4/13 and sitting at a team score of 5/48, suddenly runs were hard to find. Henry Rice joined Sam Burgess at the crease and the pair put on a very impressive  51* for the sixth wicket. As we limped past 63, suddenly the runs opened up and Henry Rice took full advantage. He finished on an impressive 32* off 25 deliveries and was well supported by Sam Burgess 17*(30) who did very well to bat through some trying overs when wickets were falling around him.

The declaration came with 5/99 on the board and that left us with 6 overs for the day. We wanted one wicket, two would be nice. Caleb Hoberg strolled in and first ball a wicket. With ball in hand for the last over of the day Darcy got our second wicket. Port 2/19 at stumps day one. It’s a nice feeling going home day one with the points already in the bag but we still had a job to do day two.
With rain hanging around and a shower just before play, getting the outright wasn’t going to be easy. Darcy took a wicket in the first over of the day. From there it was the Darcy Hunkin show. He finished with 6/14 off 8 magic overs. His match figures were 9/25. He was a finger tip away from having 10 wickets. Great support from Will Quigley Smith who took a great diving catch and got the vital last wicket as rain began to fall again. I was really impressed with our fielding. We caught literally everything that came at us and the game was over before the first drinks break. 
KENSINGTON 5/99 dec DF Port Adelaide 63, 31
Man of the Match : Darcy Hunkin – 3/11, 6/14. Brilliant

Well done to the committee who have organised a defibrillator at the club. Lets hope we never have to use it, but it is there just in case anyone needs it.

Mary Read once again organised this and there will be a First Aid night to demonstrate how to use it in the near future.

In the meantime, I noticed there are instructions to follow.

The committee is a purely volunteer role and very much under rated by most people. The committee has done a brilliant job in helping Kensington to achieve the position it does as number 1 in the Cricket Australia rankings. It is a job that takes many hours per week and lots of energy and enthusiasm from these dedicated people. So when you get a chance please thank them for their much appreciated efforts for the Browns!
