Gretna junior cricket – November 28

AFTER yet another wet Saturday night the Gretna Under 13s travelled to Cornelian Bay where they were just beaten by New Town. New Town batting first made a total of 10 for 68 runs off 16.3 overs, with seven of the Gretna players picking up wickets. Bowling: Zac Carnes made 2 for 1 off three balls, Tom Parsons 2-12 off two overs, Jack Stevenson 1-6 off two, Jacksyn Mann 1-7 off two, Hanna Mann 1-8 off two, and Josh Farrow – after bowling well in the Under 15s last weekend – continued his good form with the ball taking 1-0 off two overs.

In reply, Gretna put up a great contest, going down by just seven runs, finishing up 10-61 off 23.2 overs. Daniel Browning top-scored with a fine 15 runs which included three 4s. Next best was Daniel’s younger brother Ryan who made eight runs with one 4. Well done Ryan and congratulations on playing your first game. Other run scorers were Tom Parsons with seven and Ryan Emery scoring 5 (one 4). An interesting statistic from the Gretna innings was that all players were bowled out except Ryan Emery who was run out. Keep up the great work team, you are all playing great cricket.

The Under 15s travelled to North Warrane to play Clarence but a double booking saw the game transferred to the Rokeby Village Green. Due to the change of venue and the need to remove water from the pitch, the game was reduced from 40 to 35 overs.

In a close and exciting game, Gretna defeated Clarence by one wicket. It went down to the final over. With one wicket remaining, Clarence needed eight runs to win. The cool, calm and collected Dylan Carver bowled the perfect over – a maiden – the every ball on the spot. Final scores were Gretna 10 for 105 off 34.4 overs and Clarence 9 for 98 off 35 overs. It was the Gretna boys’ first win.   

Captain Aaron Triffitt led from the front with a fine 45 which included eight 4s and one 6. Aaron’s innings lasted 25 overs which include a 38 run partnership with Dylan Carver (who batted very patiently) and a 29 run partnership with Jeremy Nositter who made 15 runs (one 4 & one 6). First-gamer Trent Grant made seven runs (one 4) and also did a good job with the gloves. 

There were some great spells of bowling throughout the Clarence innings. Aaron Triffitt took 3-2 off for overs, Josh Raspin 2-6 off 4, Jeremy Nossiter 1-6 off 4, Aaron Dawes 1-8 off 4 and Nathan Wakefield 1-9 off 2. The boys held every catch that came their way, in particular Brodie Gleeeson who took a ripper at first slip. Well done boys, you all showed great improvement and commitment when batting or bowling.
Next games: Round 6, Sunday, December 5– Under 13 v Glenorchy at Glenora District High School. Under 15 v Glenorchy at Cadbury No. 2.
