ROUND FIVE - LIMITED OVERS VERSUS MANLY-WARRINGAH PLUS PG'S T20 ACTION
See the Hornsby RSL and Hornsby Sports Physiotherapy Scoreboard below for the scores.
Round 5 of the men's grade season saw us line up against the Manly-Warringah Club. Here is how we faired:
First Grade had a comfortable win down at Manly Oval after restricting Manly to 5/227. Scott Rodgie and Ben Davis did most of the work with the bat, with Will Buttleman and Nathan Maskell finishing the job.
Second Grade had the 6 points just about locked in before an unbeaten 9th-wicket partnership of 70 for the Manly boys saw them sneak home.
Third Grade were outdone by a strong all-round performance.
Fourth Grade were pipped at the post at Asquith - falling just short of Manly's total.
Fifth Grade had a tough old day, but wickets to Rish Joshi was a definite highlight.
The Rangers will be hoping to bounce back strong next week against Campbelltown-Camden in more limited overs action!
In Sunday's PG's action, our boys went down in yet another excruciatingly close game - this time to Sydney University. After slumping to 8/73, Joe Hiley and Lewis Hextell counter-attacked, sending the ball to all parts of the ground and helping us to a defendable 169.
In reply the students seemed in control at 1/117 before Jack Harris decided to cause some carnage, taking 5/29. He, along with Jacob Heinrich bowled with pace and aggression to have Sydney Uni 9/167, but we couldn't quite get that final wicket.
