U12 Blue - Semi Final vs Lane Cove

High Flying Blues Charge into Final 

Last Saturday, the Gordon Blue cricket team travelled to Bales Park to play Lane Cove in the semi finals.

The match started with Gordon winning the toss, which was a good start, and choosing to bat with openers Matt and Sammy.

Matt faced the first ball of the game looking very confident. He made Lane Cove unhappy by knocking the ball into gaps between the fielders and making them run in the hot sun. Sammy was bowled for 12 and in came Noah who retired at 22. Aston hit a six off his third ball, followed by Rory’s great shot into the air for six. Lachie walked in from the shade and lifted our total score to 144.

Innings 2. We started the bowling with Aston taking a wicket and Noah stumping one of the Lane Cove batsman. Sammy took a good catch and so did Noah as wicket keeper. Lachie bowled one out and then Declan did too. Finley took a catch diving backwards. Noah bowled out another and Matt did some great wicket keeping, sending a Lane Cove batsman back to his kit bag. One more stumping and they were all gone.
Gordon are through to the Grand Final. Let’s go Blues!
