Match Report Vs Mount Evelyn
Yarra junctions 2nd XI ventured out to Mount Evelyn, with the Eagles fielding a very inexperienced side littered with debutants.
After electing to bat first, our openers went about setting a foundation. Which is exactly what they did. With Under 16 Co-Captain RHYS FOLEY (72) and RAY TURNER (18) getting the Eagles off to a flyer!
With the wicket of Turner, it was another Under 16 MITCH ANDERSON (17) holding strong in his 2nd XI debut. With Mitchs wicket on the stroke of drinks, KYLE DARK (40) joined Rhys in another outstanding partnership.
A late order cameo from LACHIE THOMPSON (28) saw the Eagles post a total of 7/188!
With ball in hand the Eagles set out on defending there total. With a young inexperienced bowling attack lead by another Under 16 HARRY BANSAGI (2/31) the game came down to the wire!
Unfortunately in the final over Mount Evelyn proved to strong and passed us with only balls to spare. Truely an incredible effort from our boys fielding a side rich with future promise! The experience gained into the younger members is just as valuable as a win!
