ROUND 1 V QUEANBEYAN

won

This very entertaining match was the first of the season's limited

pyjama

games. The start of the match was marred by some hoodlum (Wombat, no doubt) driving

all over the wicket on Friday night. We were''strengthened"by the loss of GX and JA

on rep. duties.

Bruce Tapp won his first toss for three years and sent Queanbeyan into bat. A goos

bowling and fielding effort (Who is that growing a shark's fin?) kept Queanbeyan 's

score to 9 for 130. Ken Bone again bowled very well supported by Peter Day who picked

up 3 wickets and one soccer style run-out of Bob Farquarson.

Todd Ritchie and Roger Lonie opened in excellent style scoring 46. Todd looked particularly

impressive. Chris Burgess 38, Roger 18 Peter 11 and Tappy 18 with runner,

batted sensibly, not losing their cod against a tight Queanbeyan attack, allowing

us to win. The most exciting patrt of the day occured in the final 3 overs. The scores

tied at 130. A maiden is played out. Two overs left. Tappy goes for a big hit.

Caught. 4 for 130. Cheeky single.- Burgess run out. 5 for 130... Two balls left...

Debutant Clive Jones spoons catch to bowler. Dropped. Melee.. Wait, No.. Yes Run

... Yeesss. .Victory 1!

A well fought and deserved victory to the Creek.

ROUND 2 v ANU

Washed out

ROUND 3 v Woden

Victory

New Captain John Abrahams Esq. won the toss and sent Woden to the crease. Wickets

fell regularly, runs were scarce - Woden made 88 from 48 overs. Four run-outs were

executed in an excellent fielding effort. Todd Ritchie singlehandedly thrashed the

bowlers to all parts of the boundary scoring 54* out of the 78 runs required (rainaffected)

for victory. An excellent display from the whole team.

ROUND 1 V QUEANBEYAN (Interstate)

Put into bat on a pitch that had n't felt a roller for a week and for a while it seemed

if it wasn't going to see a batsman. The sight of 4/14 seemed to upset Drew and

Harris who took the initative right away from Queanbeyan with a great stand of 80

and with a bit of help from the tail end reached a total of 151. Queanbeyan after

starting badly on a pitch now playing like a first class pitch namely the MCG of recent

years, never threatened and were gone for 88. Champagne in the shed afterwards to

celebrate Dick Cottorfe 100th wicket for the club and Harris's 2000th run.

ROUND 2 v ANU

ROUND 1 v QUEANBEYAN

We lost the toss (again) and were sent in on an easy paced wicket only to find

Smith out off the first ball of the innings. (YeSja square cut)

Fortunately, we recovered quickly and scored 7 for 196 off 49 overs thanks mainly to

a magnificent 8C* by Jonathan Abrahams. Other scores- Darren Morris 38, Steve McGonald

20, and Andrew Burgess 22.

Queanbeyan found our bowling and fielding too tight and could manage only 94 off 47

overs before they were all out. Best bowling, Andrew Burgess 3 for 10 off 10 overs.
