After winning the toss The 16 Reds put East Torrens into bat on a wind swept Roma Mitchell pitch. With Will McGowan on fire down wind ET were 3/16 and our decision seemingly justified. A 94 run partnership hurt us in the middle of the innings and we couldn’t stop Ryan King from reaching 100. In total I believe we had 5 opportunities to get him out and missed. Jack Konnis came on and bowled very tight and consistent and got the big wicket of King and ET suddenly had lost 3/6. A few dropped catches and some other near misses saw ET reach 196 all out. Will McGowan finished with 4/47 and Jack Konnis 3/31. At stumps we were 0/4. Despite some tough moments this was a score that was considered more than achievable. Day two didn’t start overly well. At 2/16 early in the run chase we desperately needed a strong partnership and it looked like we had one. Harry Edmonds looked at ease at the crease playing all around the wicket. At the other end Sam Rahaley looked strong and went on to top score with 34. When Harry fell for 23 things looked shaky. Loosing 3/2 when it mattered most in our middle order destroyed our run chase. A solid 23 from Liam Greber late in the innings gave us some hope and the ever reliable Liam Winskill (16) also worked hard to rescue the innings late but we couldn’t stop the wickets falling. Kensington all out 145 – lost by 51 runs. As mentioned at the end of the game it is important to consider our team mates at training and the emphasis this week will no doubt will be on improving our batting. Big game V Sturt this week. Man of the match Will McGowan 4/47.
