Oakers "Coast" to victory......

By

U17's beat Marsden by 10 wickets in double quick time....

Not loads to say about the game as was all over in a flash but with Marsden turning up with only 9 men, no victories to their name this season and some key players out - whilst the Oak for the 1st time all season had the "magnificent seven" on show; the writing was on the wall before a ball was bowled....

Basically, Marsden won the toss, elected to bat and scored 102 off their allocated 22 overs. A fairly slowish run rate against some tight bowling; although only 3 wickets fell - one each to Ryan, Brad, Ovais.

Joe Smith posted his customary elegant 50 but was outscored earlier in the innings by A Daniel. Only ex Oaker Tom "Bobby" Haigh got into double figures.

In reply, the only real excitement was who would get to 50 first as both openers were neck and neck throughout their 30's (Keeling and Wadsworth), matching each other run for run with some clever stroke play and definitely finding the gaps in the field.

In the end, Ryan retired bang on 50 whilst John was late 30's and the score on (I think!) 99 or 100. So 9 men left to bat, 7 overs left and 3 runs required....

Ovais contributed a few, John reached 38 - and only Mark Johnson made any decent contribution with the ball - his 6 overs going for 24 (no wickets).

A convincing victory and done for about 8 to enable a quick beverage and an early night, Big Brother and scores to Phil Senior on time!!!

God bless Broad Oak... !
