Cricket Round 6 – Uplands Miss Chance to Go Top

In the round before the Christmas break, the only real result was a surprising but deserved Oldlands home win over Uplands.

Lovely running catch to dismiss Uplands for 150.

An Uplands win would’ve meant they would’ve topped the table. Instead Uplands collapsed for 150 in their second innings, allowing Oldlands to win by 8 wickets. With that win Oldlands are now in touching distance of the pack.

In the other matches, Aspin squandered a golden opportunity to catch up to Eastland when they could only manage a draw against bottom side Central.

Maple and Eastland also drew.

Baseball Week 14 – Bees Beat Exiles 2-1 in Home Series

Bracken Bees           8     7     1

Portswood Exiles     5     0     4

Bracken Bees showed their mettle on the weekend. Welcoming baseball’s in form side, they were strong and cunning in their first two games. Having used their best two pitchers on Friday and Saturday, third choice Carmichael was no match for the Portswood batters on Sunday.

Samsoun pitched a sublime game on Saturday.

Samsoun pitched a sublime game on Saturday.

Saturday, once again being the key day for a series, showed the Bees at their best. The score was 7 zip in the home side’s favour and it was Samsoun’s pitching that won the day. So commanding was he on the mound that they let him pitch 8 innings. And he barely gave a hit away let alone any runs.

Bang! There she goes! Walton hits a home run.

The Bees started well with the Walton 2 run home run in the third build up the momentum for the rest of the game. From that moment on Portswood looked a beaten side, a very unusual situation for the Exiles who have a strong .642 win ration so far this season.

Armstrong pitched a great game on Sunday, helping the Exiles to victory.

Cricket Round 5 – Batting Catastrophes

The weekend of the bowlers.

The weekend of the bowlers.

In an unbelievable week of cricket, there were batting collapses in every game, in nearly every innings!

The weather played a substantial role in each match. The wind gusty and violent. The highest score in the three matches was 288 by Maple. The second was 198.

Oldlands won their first game of the season as Central collapsed to 114 in their second innings. Oldlands reached 157 for 0 to win the game. They could only score 152 in their first.

Meanwhile the mighty Aspin batting line up were the first to lose by an innings as Maple dismissed them for 83 and 198.

The highlight of the week was Uplands’ unexpected win over undefeated Eastland. Once again a strong batting line up like Eastland’s could only make324 runs over two innings, giving Uplands a 7 wicket win.

All the slip cordon catches were taken.

Maple 17

In an extremely high scoring game, in an atmosphere that seemed like a festival of batting, Maple almost pulled off an unlikely victory, falling 60 odd runs short as they ran out of time in their second innings run chase. Perhaps another half session was enough for them. Who knows but they gave as good as they got. They remain one of only two teams still undefeated in the competition.

Uplands won the toss and batted and it was that man again, Hunter, who scored his 3rd century in 4 games. His batting average is currently an incredible 106. With Lintelli and Smith scoring centuries, Uplands score reached above the half century.

Hunter gets luck on the way to his century.

Smith is dropped early on. He goes on to make 121.

Naturally the plan was to get Maple out very quickly and make them follow on. It didn’t happen. Maple made 432. The grand plan was over. What was needed was a plan B.

Upland picked up the tempo and made a quickfire 320. The total seemed enough to cover their backs and allow them to throw everything at Maple.

And the plan seemed to work at first. The first 4 wickets fell quickly with only Williams getting a half century. But when Benoit entered the playing arena, the face of the match completely changed. Helped with a strong contribution from Lipotiv, Maple started clawing the runs back. However time ran out and Maple fell short.

Benoit does the business and gets another boundary.

In other news Aspin beat Oldlands quite easily, with Rotwell scoring a record breaking 353 runs in the first innings . He followed that up with  another century in the second half as Aspin won by 247 runs.

In the other game Eastland continued their incredible winning streak as they remained top after defeating Central by 114 runs.
