Grand Final Results
B1 – vs Para Hills @ Goodwood Oval
With a bit of rain forecast for Sunday and a draw meaning Goodwood would win, Para Hills won the toss and decided to bowl on a pretty good deck. Unfortunately the boys were outclassed by Para Hills bowling as Harry Singh’s 38 was the only highlight. Batting for exactly 40 overs the boys were dismissed for 96. In reply Para Hills were in control the whole innings as they notched a first innings win before stumps on day 1. With rain around on day 2 Goodwood fancied themselves for a reverse outright win. A fantastic display from U17 Jack Luders (5/20) meant Para Hills made 159. Looking to be aggressive in the second dig Goodwood went back in and made 7/138(dec) leaving 30 overs to bowl and just over 70 runs in front. The boys looked fantastic as team bowling and tight fielding reduced Para Hills to 4/27, but it wasn’t to be. Eventually chasing down the runs Para Hills were too good on the day. Goodwood are super proud of Robbo and the boys, the only C grade team in the B1 competition far exceeded our expectations, congratulations to all of the boys who played C grade this season.
Goodwood 96 (Singh 38) & 7/138(dec) (Luders 30) def by Para Hills 159 (Luders 5/20) & 4/76 (Luders 3/13)
LO2 – vs Multicultural Sports and Community Club @ Adelaide H.S. #4
Being sent in on a relatively small ground Potts and the boys took on the undefeated MSCC. Coming in at number 3 Darren Martin put on a show as he posted 60, he was well supported by Segal (32*) and Raj Singh (27*). A few boundaries at the end of the innings pushed the score up to 7/189 from their allotted 40 overs. The second innings started beautifully as MSCC’s best bat was run out for a diamond duck. Falling to 9/138 Goodwood looked to be in the box seat, but you can never count MSCC out. Fantastic batting from their number 6 pushed the game to a scenario of needing 10 off 10 balls. Raj Singh, the LO2’s leading wicket taker, eventually snuck one through the number 11 and the ball cannoned into the stumps. The LO2’s won the premiership by 9 runs in a fantastic game of cricket. Congratulations to Pottsy and all the boys who played in his team throughout the season.
