Last weekend saw the finals in the Junior Cricket taking place.
At this stage a report on the Hardball Premiership Final between Lansdowne Gold and the Red Star Aces has not been received, but Lansdowne Gold did win. Well done Lansdowne!
The Incrediball Premiership Final was held at Greytown, last Saturday 13 December 2014 and was contested by Greytown and The Martinborough Hawkes. Greytown won the toss and elected to bowl. The Hawkes got off to a fantastic start wtih Flynn and Emma McCleod knocking 31 runs from the first 4 overs. Fortunately for Greytown they sharpened their bowling attack with Flynn Register bowling his 2 overs for only 6 runs and took 3 wickets. Greytowns fielding was also very sharp with 4 wickets being taken by run outs. The Martinborough Hawkes ended their 16 overs with 55 runs on the board.
Greytown started their batting conservatively adding 24 off the first 4 overs without a wicket and continued to build from there. Eslynn Beck contributed with 18 runs, 12 of them coming from fours. Martinborough has some great chances in the field with attempted catches and run-outs but in the end Greytown losing only 3 wickets helped their cause. Greytown finished with 100 runs and completed an unbeaten season.
Thanks to all the supporters who turned up for both teams.
Well done Greytown for winning the Incrediball Premiership competition.
The Super 8 Championship Final was between the Martinborough Tuis and Hadlow played last Friday, 12 December 2014. The game was played at an earlier time of 2pm and was shifted from Martinborough to Hadlow. Hadlow batted first and posted a score of 99 runs. The opening partnership got them off to a good start and a number of wides and no balls helped out the home side. Olivia Clark had the best bowling figures for Martinborough of 1 for 11 off her two overs and also affected a direct hit run-out. Astin Scott got the only other wicket with figures of 1-16.
Martinborough were unable to reach the target, falling 30 runs short. Dan Graham was the top run scorer for the Tuis and hit a huge 4, almost a 6 over the head of the fielder at long on.
Well done to Hadlow for being the Incrediball Super 8 Championship winners!
