Round 4 results from Sunday, November 16.
SOME great matches were played in the junior cricket at the weekend. In the Under 13s Gretna played out a close one with Clarence Maroon, going down by just six runs. Tyron Bailey did very well with the bat making 62 not out and he also took 2 wickets. Sam Jackson also got two wickets and his brother Riley claimed his first ever wicket.
New Norfolk Under 13s did very well against Lindisfarne. Jordan Gittus did well making 16, while Riley Higgins remained 8 not out. Zayde Hill bowled well taking two wickets while Coby Kemmler claimed one.
In the Under 15s Gretna had a big win over Old Beach Gold with Sam Booth batting very well and making his first ever century. Booth hit 6x4s and 11x6s in his total of 114. Josh Eyles did very well playing his first match and making 60 not out including 7x4s and 2x6s. Blake Mayne was again in good form and got 25. Hannah Mann captured 2-4 to be the best of the bowlers as did Jake Campbell and Jacob Bowerman.
When Sam Booth was on 99 he hit the ball firmly to square leg where his cousin Ian Booth was officiating as umpire. The ball hit Ian right in the ribs leaving a nice bruise. Seeing this, Sam went to Ian's aid, totally forgetting about a possible century until Ian directed him to go take a run. That sure is taking one for the team Ian!
In the New Norfolk Under 15s match, the young Red Caps went down to Kingborough by 93 runs. Nathan Rice did very well making 33 before being unluckily bowled after the ball had come off his gloves. Jye Bearman also batted well making 15. Cody Morgan bowled well capturing three wickets including a great catch and a run-out. Rhys Franklin and Dylan Morgan chimed in with one wicket each.
In the other Under 15s match, Molesworth defeated New Town by 52 runs. No other details were available.
Congratulations to Hannah Mann who has again been selected in the State Under 15 girls team. Hannah flys out to Sydney on Tuesday with the team. Well done Hannah.
