Tigers under 12s win fourth straight

THE Bomaderry/Ex-Servos under 12s have won their fourth game straight following a crushing 66-run victory over Berry-Shoalhaven Heads at Bomaderry Sporting Complex last Saturday.

After losing the toss and being sent into bat, Bomaderry posted a strong total of 4/158 with Dre Howlett leading the way with 24 retired.

John Bowern continued his good form, notching up 22 before retiring while Trent Walsh hit three boundaries in 18 retired.

Riley Matthews chipped in with 17 retired as the total was boosted late in the innings to ensure the Tigers gave themselves something to bowl at.

Wickets fell consistently throughout the Berry innings as a strong Bomaderry bowling attack was lead by Darcy Hopkins who finished with 2/1 off two overs.

Luke Jones, Sam Latu, Jackson Trost, Ritesh Baral, Riley Matthews and Trent Walsh all finished with one wicket to their name as Berry were bowled out for 92.

The Bomaderry/Ex-Servos under 10s played out a thrilling tie on Saturday with Batemans Bay in which both teams reached 79 on completion of their innings.

Requiring four off the last ball of the innings, Batemans Bay failed with Emelia Matthews throwing down the stumps from the boundary to run out the Bay batsman. 

Emelia, Ben, Kyedon and Freya all batted well to set up the match during the Bomaderry innings.

The win was a 27 run improvement on their previous match against Batemans Bay and all players should be proud of their efforts. 

In senior cricket last weekend, Bomaderry recorded a comfortable victory over Batemans Bay in their match at Lighthouse Oval.

Batting first, the Bay managed only 125 before being bowled out with John Muggleton and Michael Lees doing the damage with three wickets each.

In reply, opening batsman Blake Munilla led the visitors to victory with a stunning knock of 78 not out as Bomaderry passed the total with the loss of only three wickets.

In second grade, Bomaderry also managed a strong win, knocking off Batemans Bay at Bomaderry Oval.

Opener Hugh Rigney made 57 to get Bomaderry off to a good start in their innings before Nick Jennings cracked six boundaries in 37 to move the home sides total to 169.

The Bomaderry bowling was too strong in reply, with Batemans Bay reaching only 102 before being bowled out.

Anthony Johnston did the damage with the ball, taking 4/33 off his eight overs. 

At Artie Smith Oval, it was Bomaderry third grade taking on Ex-Servos in their match.

Bomaderry batted first and made 135 with Steve Wallace, Dayne Johnston, Nathan Wallace and Robert Mirabito all reaching the 20s before being removed.

The lack of a big score cost the home side as Ex-Servos managed to chase down the Bomaderry total with relative ease, winning by seven wickets in the 17th over.
