Derwent Valley and Highlands cricket results – Week 8


DUE to the wet weather, all of Saturday’s games were deemed washouts with only the New Norfolk 6th Grade game being played on Sunday. In great conditions on Friday night, the Redcap ladies made it two wins from two games to start their season. Due to the limited number of games played, no votes were awarded for the New Norfolk News Player of the Year Award but an update on the leaderboard is provided later in this report.

WEEK 8 RESULTS – NOVEMBER 24-26

NEW NORFOLK – 6th Grade 40-Over format: New Norfolk 7/225 (40 overs) was defeated by St Ann’s 6/228 (37.2 overs) at Tynwald Park on Sunday. Wet weather caused delayed start. Batting first, the Redcaps posted 225, seeing out their full 40 overs. Coming in at first drop, Beau Kline had a great day out with the bat, hitting four beautiful sixes and nine fours on his way to a top score of 107 not out. Tim Lowe also turned back time to raise the bat at the score of 50 and then retired – knowing some young players were keen to bat. With the ball, Steve Sillifant picked up a couple of poles with Kline having economical figures bowling to top his day with 1 for just 15 from 6 overs. Unfortunately for the Redcaps, St Ann’s got the required runs for the win with a bit over two overs to spare. Batting: B. Kline 107 from 86, T. Lowe 50 from 47 (both not out). Bowling: S. Sillifant 2 for 31 from 6, B. Kline 1 for 23 from 8.

Women’s T20 format: New Norfolk 5/92 (17.1 overs) defeated St Aidan’s White 8 / 91 (16.3 overs) on Friday night at Tynwald Park. Bowling first, the Redcaps took all eight wickets in fewer than 17 overs, reducing the St Aidan’s score to 91. Mackenzie George and Angel Green picked up two good wickets each. With the bat and with the scent of victory in the air again, the Redcaps went about some good patient batting to gain the required runs for their
second win in a row in the 18th over. Lisa East top-scored with 17. Batting: L. East 17 from 25, V. Fletcher 11 from 16 (not out). Bowling: M. George 2 for 13 from 2, A. Green 2 for 18 from 3.
