The U16 Reds have secured first innings points on day one of their two day game V Tea Tree Gully. On a beautiful Marryatville oval, The decision was to bowl if we won the toss and the decision went our way. Weather was superb.
A few overs later and TTG were 4/2 and the decision justified. TTG all out 54
Will McGowan took 3/12, Darcy Hunkin 4/10 and Liam Greber 2/5 were simply too good. Darcy Hunkin now has 19 wickets for the season and leads the Reds competition- well deserved.
A spectacular catch to Henry Rice left him struggling to breathe however he was never going to let go of the catch of the season.
Kensington 2/103: ( stumps)
Tom Van der Juegd played his best innings of the season with a magic 69 from 79 deliveries. His innings included 4x sixes & 6x fours and his presence at the crease was intimidating. This was an innings built on the back of a strong training session mid week. Only a throw from the boundary to run him out was going to dismiss him. Great support from Peter Unerkov who played an important team role.
Angas Marshall 7*
Harry Edmonds 16*
Special mention to Sam Lucas, Liam Nichol & Jack Read from the whites who spent most of the day in support of the reds, much appreciated!!
