With the junior social and barbecue in full swing at Grange Loan, Carlton U11’s weren’t put off by missing out on a burger or two and on a cold, dark Friday evening in Stockbridge scored a good win against Grange Sharks. Playing 10-a-side, there were times when it looked as if the game might be in doubt as dark clouds gathered and light rain started to fall – fortunately both sides were able to get a full 20 overs in.

 

Grange won the toss and put Carlton in. First pair up were Fin and Rua who played their shots well and with a couple of boundaries put down good foundations and soon moved the score on to 221. Next in were Brodie and Dylan – some sensible batting and another couple of 4’s saw the score advance to 234. Nina and Eve were next up adding another 9 runs, with Nina sweeping a lovely boundary. Muz and Jamie added another 6 runs before the final pairing of Fabian and Saachin saw the score through to 256.

 

Although Carlton had reached a competitive target, tight fielding and accurate bowling would be required to win the game and the Carlton team didn’t disappoint. Muz and Brodie opened the bowling restricting Grange to 2 runs off the first 4 overs, with Brodie snagging a wicket. Next up were Rua and Saachin who restricted Grange to a further 13 runs with Saachin picking up a wicket.

However it was Eve and Nina bowling in tandem in the middle of the innings that really put the pressure on, restricting the score with four wickets falling including a great caught and bowled by Eve. Under the watchful gaze of the Grange groundsman, with the drizzle coming back on, the covers came onto the main wicket (resulting in the boundary being brought in!). However, Jamie and Dylan weren’t to be deterred, Jamie snagging  a wicket and Dylan two, just missing out on his hat trick. That left Fin and Fabian to bring it home, with Grange ultimately losing by 29 runs. Great credit to all for some really accurate bowling and fielding.

This one turned out to be a thriller. Carlton batted first and after a sticky start Brodie and Ruaridh Mc batted well, plundering 20 runs off the second over. Fabian and Saachin came out with a net gain before Harry and Benji combined to good effect to end their partnership on +24, with Harry's cover drive for 4 being the shot of the day. Cameron and Ruari S then took the home side's score up to a healthy 250. A good effort all round.

Harry bowled a great spell first up, picking up a couple of wickets to put Grange on the back foot. Benji bowled with good pace and Ruaridh Mc bowled some testing deliveries (backed by some remarkable appealing) and took a very good high catch off his own bowling. Ruari S bowled a tidy spell while Fabian showed he can swing the ball - a great asset to any team. Cameron bowled well and he and Saachin showed great commitment in the field while Brodie defied injury to turn in a good performance behind the stumps. It all came down to the last over with Grange hitting 15 runs to snatch the win at the last gasp.

 Carlton started strongly with Ewan and Dylan putting on 25 for the first four overs. Zak and Cameron scored well but also lost three
