Milo Cup Comes to South

On Friday 2nd March the Boys played their first match in the Milo Cup Cricket Competition. We had a challenging first up opponent in Chisnallwood Intermediate, who had already played in a previous round so were match prepared. We won the toss and sent them into bat and early on our bowlers settled into a good line and length but crucially wickets seemed hard to come by. The opposition made a steady start and after 10 overs were on 45/0. We applied ourselves a little better in the field in the final 10 overs building pressure by taking wickets at regular intervals. We ended up restricting Chisnallwood to a reasonable 95/7. The pick of the bowlers were Cole Dwyer with 3/23 and Kylan Harrison with 2/17 off their 4 overs. We were confident that we could chase the total down but never really gained control of the match. Ben Roberts and captain Scott Phillips plugged away nicely to put on an opening stand of 43 before both fell in quick succession. We then started to fall behind the required run rate and when the last over came around we needed a challenging 8 runs from it to win. Unfortunately this was not our day and despite a desperate lunge into the crease off the final ball by Cole to draw the match he was agonizingly inches short. This handed the win to a deserving Chisnallwood side by 1 run. Some good batting from Scott Phillips with 24 and Jayden Ball with 19 could not see us through.
Unfortunately this eliminates us from the competition but we certainly have lots of areas to work on for next years campaign. Well done to the boys who were involved and a big thank you to the supporters who came down to watch.
