Hetton vs Red House
Jack Scott and Daniel Walker walked out to the square in preparation to face the first ball of the innings against the Red House opening bowler. The first ball faced was bowled as a wide however the opening bowler soon recovered with a wicket very next ball by bowling out the Hetton opener Jack Scott. The NO.3 batsmen Ty Wilkinson didn’t take very long to get settled into the crease as on his first ball faced he put the bowler away for 4. Unluckily for Hetton, another quick wicket was taken as Ty fell to the same dismissal as the first wicket. After the first over Hetton were 7-2. Another wicket fell in the next over leaving Hetton in not the best of positions with 3 wickets lost inside 2 overs with a score of only 11. The middle order batsmen kept the board ticking however a wickets were still falling after every few overs. After the whole 20 overs passed Hetton had only managed to scavenge a total of 69 runs with Taylor Moulder the NO.7 top scoring with 15 runs.
The second innings started strong for Hetton as inside the first 2 balls the opening bowler Harrison Lowther had taken the wicket of Red Houses NO.1 batsmen. The game was looking good for Red House as there 2 and 3 batsmen stayed at the crease for quite a length of time. There other opening batsmen was building a good innings with a score of 14 until he ran himself out in the 11th over. The next 2 batsmen shortly followed as bowler Jack Scott took two important wickets in his 3rd over. At this point the Red House batsmen were scoring a lot slower than they were at the star of the game with their top order batsmen. More wickets fell as the NO.3 batsmen was left in bat with his bottom order. Trying to get the score over the line to win the game the long lasting batsmen ran himself out with few overs to go. This boosted the confidence in the Hetton team as the batsmen’s 22 was very important to the opposing side. In the last 4 overs of the game the rest of the wickets fell; the last 7 batsmen only adding a total of 3 runs to the team’s final score.
The last ball of the game sent Red House in shock as they ended with a score of 51 all out as the NO.10 batsmen, looking for runs, was ran out for a score of 0. After a very bad first innings from Hetton they pulled it back and won by 18 runs. The leading wicket takers were Harrison Lowther with 4, Matthew Tomys with 3, and Jack Scott with 2.
