Round 5 – week 1

A Grade
After a hiccup last week; the team came out firing against Keswick at Hawthorndene. A fantastic spell by young left-armer Ben Kanck tore through Keswick with 5/9 off 8 overs with a run-out to boot. J. Ferris chipped in with 2/7 to have the visiting team all out for 58 after just 31 overs.

The Ramblers made quick work of it, putting on 4/110 in 29 overs with A. Lee making a brisk 45; J. Ferris with an even quicker 32 and B. Willson anchoring for 27*. With 12 overs at the opposition; they are now 1/20 in their 2nd dig.

B Grade
Originally an away game also to Keswick, but with Blackwood High being under water, the game was moved to Weymouth after the D’s opposition forfeited. Keswick won the toss; batted & looked solid at 2/86. Calderbank begun to rip through them however, taking 6/26 off 16.4 overs. Singles to Stanley, Handke & Jones + a run-out saw them make 153.

The Ramblers had to survive a tough 4-overs at the end of the day, finishing up 1/8.

C Grade
Playing Western Youth @ Cowandilla Primary, Ramblers won the toss and batted first. Openers, A. Strunk (36) & L. Porter (36), got away to get a good start with D. Keese bringing it home with 81*. C. Porter made 29 and S. Brodie helped finish the innings with 18*. After 60 overs, the team scored a healthy 5/257.

D Grade
Sadly D Grade’s opposition forfeited this game after only having just 3 named players. Not the way anyone wants to get a win.
