We now play SECA at Kelynak Reserve on Thursday 16 January.
Unfortunately the U12s and U16s bowed out of the carnival today but both teams had a successful campaign and should be proud of their efforts.
The U12s lost their Quarter Final - NMCA 62 defeated by Mornington 81. An incredible performance in the field with 5 run outs and 4 catches gave us every chance but Mornington's bowlers were hard to get away and we struggled to get a partnership going.
Thanks to our coach Simon Reid, team manager Cameron Kenny and everyone else that helped during the carnival. A special thanks to Rosebank CC for hosting our home matches.
Our best performers;
Ben Lyons 3 run outs
Paul Sweetman 2/2
Seb Price 14 and 2 catches
Ned Reid 12
The U16s came up against the undefeated West Gippsland and it was always going to be a tough ask. West Gippsland batted first and posted a big score of 4-205 in just 30 overs. Our boys were not disgraced in the run chase, ending our innings at 6/159.
Thanks to our coach Andy Pardalis, team manager/assistant coach Paul Bamford, Mandy Williamson, young Joel for helping with scoring, and everyone else that helped during the carnival. A special thanks to Preston Baseballers CC for hosting our home matches.
Patrick Davies 73 ret no
Lachie Bamford 39 & 2/30
