Second game saw us playing Newtown at home. Newtown won the toss and batted but some very good fielding and bowling from Becker, Matt Egan, Griffo, Stokes, Higgo and the always reliable Jake The Snake had Newtown 3/67 after 33 overs at break. A very good session by all. Excellent fielding continued after the break and Becker stepped up to run out the dangerous Justin Grabrowski for 4 with a direct hit from about 35 metres. Newtown had no choice but to force the issue and had their turn in charge of the game with an 80 run 5th wicket partnership which saw them move to 5/150. Not to be outdone, Stokesy took his turn in the spotlight and turned things back in our favour with a hat trick in his 10th over to have 3/20. Newtown finished all out for 158. All the bowlers bolwed well with Stokes the pick with 3/26 and Becker 2/26, Jake 2/22, Higgo 1/10 and Zac 1/18. Good day all round in the field with only 4 extras.

Our turn with the bat saw us achieve our goal of not losing a wicket in the first 10 overs with Griffo and Jacob looking pretty solid. Some good bowling made it a little difficult to score but patience was the key and its good to see the guys that are batting prepared to occupy the crease. Foxy with a solid 32, Becker 66 n.o and Matt Egan 18 batted very smart and continually turned the strike over to give us the ascendancy again and Devan made another valuable 23 n.o with Becker at the end to get us home in the 51st over. We finished 5/192 and again Devan made a great contibution with the bat. Keep up the good work Dev, batting really well at the moment.

A good victory again boys and its really pleasing to see that everyone is playing their part and not relying on one or two players to get the runs or take the wickets. Another example of our good team spirit was shown by Tom Elkington, unavailable in the first week, he turned up week 2 to support the team, keep up the good work mate, pleasure to have you in the team. Again a good team effort got us over the line.

Gerry and Griffo
