The first game of the 2016-17 season was a great start with both under 12-years Great Lakes Junior Cricket Club teams facing each other.
Team white was sent into bat first with Harry Brennan and Will Lumley opening.
Both looked solid until a great bowl by Tyson Andrews (2/12) to Will Lumley was caught by Tom Kennedy.
Jake Herivel and Riley Van Haren put on 11 and 14 respectively before another great bowl by Tyson knocked out Jake Herival stumps.
The green team came out to bat and Riley Webster was the first to take a wicket in his second over.
An awesome performance was seen by Tom Kennedy 30 retired.
Drew Townsend 22 was looking to go the same way before he was caught by Ethan Smith after a solid bowl by Riley Van Haren.
Riley Van Haren soon took another wicket, sending Will Paping back for four runs.
Ender Murray in his first game with 14 runs retired.
Good start to the season boys with some good fielding as well.
Keep up the good work.
