See the Hornsby RSL and Hornsby Sports Physiotherapy Scoreboard below for the scores.
Hoping that all Rangers' friends and family had wonderful Christmas/New Year break! This week versus Randwick Petersham, saw mixed results, with our higher grades falling short but our lower grades standing tall.
Our First Grade men put a sizeable score on the board at Coogee, thanks to multiple half centuries, but a classy Randy Petes batting lineup saw them make it home in a canter.
Second Grade were never able to stay on top for long enough, Randy Petes making a respectable score. A partnership between Oli Hing and Will Fort looked promising, but a lower order collapse meant we fell short.
Third Grade's boys took early wickets at Kensington, before a late fight back meant we were chasing 183. A lack of momentum with the bat was our downfall, with no batsman really getting started. Special mention however to Jack Cincotta, who bowled 10 overs, 7 maidens, with figures of 2/5! Well bowled Jack!
Fourth Grade scraped their way to 202, with yet another half century from - you guessed it - Cam Tunks. Runs on the board was the clincher, with Randy Pete's not having the legs with the bat to get them home.
Party Murton's Fifth Grade was clinical in their win. The wickets were shared around and our top order got the job done chasing a small total.
Onwards and upwards to Parramatta next week, as we seek to put some more points on the board! Go Rangers!
