D5’s Semi Final
Coming up against Hamilton Station Kamels our D5’s were sent into bat and only managed 79 runs as a team. Hamilton Station managed to chase down the total winning by 6 wickets finishing 4 for 82. (Stats to come)

A Grade Semi Final
The boys played the semi final and not much can be said except we had a very bad bat with the bat. Chasing 102 for victory we got off to a flyer and were 1/50 of 7 overs!!, Unfortunately it all went wrong from there to be all out for 84.Best of our bowlers were Chad White (4-11) and best bat was Ben Woolley (46).
We did win the minor premiers trophy so in all we had a good season so thanks boys and see you in the next spring.
