Gordon U/12 Gold - Round 9

Cricket Stumps"BETWEEN THE WICKETS"

What happens on the field gets reported! 

 

Gordon Gold 9/150 v Mosman Blue all out 62

 

Wickets tumble as Golds run into a determined Mosman

For the first time this season the Gordon batting was made to look vulnerable against a determined Mosman outfit.  After losing the toss and being sent in our start was slow as both Charlie W (7) and Taylor (11 not out) were forced to defend against some tight bowling. Both Rory (4) and Jack (4) were hitting the ball well until dismissed. Jonas (15) was in good touch working the ball into the gaps as was Mitch (10) who hit the ball cleanly on the rather slow outfield.

Still, for the first time this season we kept losing wickets, which placed huge pressure on the lower order. Henry (6) was looking great until an excellent throw found him short of his ground and when Callum (3) was dismissed things looked a little grim. Alex (9)played three lovely off drives before he too was run out, leaving Charlie C (17 not out) and Gen (13) to combine in a strong partnership to rescue our innings. 9/150 off 32 overs, a good score but full marks to Mosman who showed how good fielding and bowling can put pressure on the batsmen.

Mosman's batting was not as strong as their bowling and wickets quickly began to tumble. Callum (2/1) began the rot, and was well supported by Jonas (2/4) A stumping by Charlie Cox and a wicket when he bowled was an excellent reward  for this enthusiastic player' well done! Jack (1/6) was rewarded for his persistence, while Gen snapped up two very good catches to assist Taylor to match figures of 3/7  - concluding great day out for both of our Met North representatives!!! Our overall bowling and fielding was very good and Mosman was all out for 62 in 21 overs.

Highlights:

  • 5 wicket takers means everyone is bowling well
  • Catching was excellent'again!
  • Another run out ' always a bonus
  • 11 drives on the offside ' we are starting to open up our scoring areas- great to see
