BSE Dragon Intermediate Boys Cricket Team Compete
On Tuesday the 3rd of March, the intermediate boys cricket squad was of to Club Court, Strafieldsaye. Our first game was against Eaglehawk. The coin was tossed and we chose to bat. Openers Manning Walsh and Billy Robertson were off to an okay start, except after only a few overs, there were a few wickets were gone and we were in trouble. Thanks to Zane Keighran 21, Hugh Schaeche 28 and Fraser Gentry 21, BSE scored 131.
Eaglehawk were off to a solid start with their openers scoring solidly all over the ground. Drew Harris then came on to bowl, claiming 3 wickets in one over, setting up an Eaglehawk collapse, only making 78. BSE won by 53 runs.
In the second game, we were up against Weeroona. We lost the toss and they decided to bat. Opener bowlers Yarwood and Schischka bowled real tight restraining Weeroona' openers, only making 77 all up after after 16 overs.
Sent into bat we kept with the same order. Bil Robertson was out early after a pull shot and knicking to the keepr. Manning Walsh had a solid 20 after getting caught cutting to point and in came the game winners. Zane and Hugh batted well in the first game, and were out to go hard again. Both batted exceptionally well making, 33* and 28*. BSE ending up on 88 after 13 overs.
Well done to the boys for proceeding to the final and thanks to Dennis our coach and Mr Howgate for their support and encouragment.
