    Under 10s

    Captain Lachlan’s decision to bowl first proved a vital one in their clash with Bushrangers at Tracey Oval last Saturday.

    Wickets tumbled left, right and centre with Aston striking in the first over, and Archer just missing a hat-trick in the second.

    Whilst he missed out on the hat-trick, Aston still made it three for the over a few balls later!

    Lachlan, Jai and Banjo also took wickets but Leo's first ball was an absolute jaffer!

    He unleashed it perfectly, taking out the off-stump with a perfectly pitched leggie!

    Kosema also struck in his first over and by the time Tyler did likewise in his second over, every ASC bowler had taken at least one wicket!

    Following on from a successful stint as wicket-keeper, Oscar also took a wicket in his only over, ensuring the streak continued!

    Archie ended the main destroyer with four wickets, while Jai took three and Lachlan and Banjo two each.

    Oscar and Jai opened the batting and took it to Bushrangers from the outset.

    Oscar smashed a four early on while Tyler had his teammates out of their seats with his amazing strike power, finishing with a run-a-ball 13!

    Leo and Kosema anchored the innings with an impressive partnership while Banjo and Lachlan batted brilliantly together with some excellent running between the wickets.

    Aston and Archer finished off a wonderful innings while Lachlan produced a great captain's knock to finish 27 not out.

    The final scores underlined ASC’s dominance with All Saints’ 5/141 to Bushrangers 18/77!

    That's right, ASC took an incredible 18 wickets!

    Player of the Week went to Archer, who finished with figures of 4/3 from 3 overs, 34 not out and a run out!

    The win was the perfect way to restart the season with ASC having suffered a close loss to St Pat’s Blue in their final game before the Christmas break.

    Captain Kosema won the toss and sent the opposition in on that occasion as well but it wasn’t as fruitful with a few expensive overs early on.

    Things turned when Lachlan broke through for the first wicket, taking a sharp return catch.

    Aston and Archer then followed, Archer taking another great return catch, while Lachlan hit the off-stump with the first ball of his next over.

    Backing up from Under 9s, Callum took a wicket in his first game of hardball cricket - yet another caught-and-bowled!

    This completed an amazing trio of caught-and-bowled in a single innings!

    Captain Kosema finished with another two wickets in his last over while some wonderful wicket keeping by Will helped keep the St Pat’s score down.

    ASC couldn’t have begun the chase more positively with Aston crunching the first ball of the innings for 4.

    Will and Jai combined for a wonderful 3rd-wicket partnership while Banjo, Archer and Leo scored 18, 14 and 8 respectively.

    Unfortunately, it wasn’t quite enough with St Pats winning 9/108 to ASC’s 9/92.


    Kanga 7s

    It was a great start to 2018 for the Kanga 7s against St Pat’s.

    ASC batted first and ran well between wickets to compile a total of 68 runs.

    Benjamin, Aleki, Elisha and Tarani all batted well.

    Tarani backed that up with the ball and received good support from fellow bowlers Bridget and Dylan.

    Player of the day went to Ramona.


    Kanga 9s
    It was a cool start to 2018 for a depleted All Saints’ Kanga 9s against RUCC at Brooke Moore Oval last Saturday.

    With only one training session under their belts in the past two months, the team was understandably a little rusty.

    ASC lost the toss and were sent in, a decision that may have backfired on RUCC as Saints compiled a good score including quite a few boundaries and the odd six.

    ASC moved well in the field to cover their lack of numbers and had some excellent overs with the ball as well.

    Player of the match went to Callum Munns who scored 30 runs and took three wickets in his first over to help ASC to a narrow win!

    A big thank you to Mr Chris Dunstall for umpiring and Riley Monico for scoring.
