    Monaro Under 16s lost Goulburn

    The Monaro Under 16s played their first home game yesterday against Goulburn. Monaro lost the toss and Goulburn elected to bat.

    The Monaro bowlers struggled with the tough leg side wides and the Goulburn batsmen got off to a fantastic start. The first breakthrough for Monaro came in the 17th over from Andrew Devereux (1/24), caught and bowled.

    The spin twins of Andrew Devereux and Andrew Bartell (1/35) were able to slow down Goulburn’s run rate and with the re-introduction of SamTaylor (3/46) and James Hayden (2/36) wickets began to become more regular for Monaro.

    Monaro was able to bowl Goulburn all out for 199 in the 43rd over. Goulburns top score was the sundries with 59 which included 46 wides.

    The chase was on for Monaro and with the opening pair of Andrew Bartell (53) and Sam Taylor (32) Monaro looked right in the game.

    Monaro’s middle order collapsed with James Hayden (13*) being the only other batsmen to reach double figures, as he ran out of partners. Monaro was rolled for 151 with the last four wickets falling with out a run scored.

    The side extends a thank you to both umpires, Bill and Zach and Steve Summerville for setting up the ground and to Tabitha Williams, Annie O’Keeffe and Eliza Icke for drinks and lunch. Thanks was also extended to Andrew O’Keeffe for coaching. The side take on the Highlands next week in Bowral.

    Monaro Under 14s beat Goulburn

    The Monaro Under 14s travelled to Goulburn for a match on the turf wicket at Seiffert oval. With overnight rain, there was a bit of a delay to the start, to allow a bit more time for the wicket to dry out.

    Goulburn won the toss and sent Monaro in. The turf wicket was difficult to play on and Monaro was in trouble early and were 3/15 after 8 overs.

    This brought captain Archie Allen to the crease with Matt Rebus and the pair set about building some sort of an innings

    for Monaro. They steadied the ship and worked their way through two changes of bowlers to put on 42 runs before Rebus (16) was given out lbw.

    Archie built on his total with help from Noah and Will Saddler who came to the crease and when he was dismissed for a great captains knock of 58.

    The score had reached 118 and through some good late hitting from Darnel Bartlett (10) saw Monaro reach a very defendable 128 runs in the 40th over.

    Our bowling started perfectly with Jake Quodling (2-11) taking a wicket with his first ball. Remy Oldrey (3-11) also picked up early wickets and Goulburn was 3 -5 after 3 overs, then 5 – 19 at the end of the openers 10 over stint.

    Some resistance followed with slow and careful batting from the Gouburn players, until Will Cahill (1-7) broke the next partnership.

    From there, Monaro shared the remaining wickets with one each to Archie Allen (1-10), Jakob Asanovski (1-10) and Russ Haylock (1-2). Goulburn’s innings finished all out 49.

    This week coming, Monaro Under 14s and 16s travel to play the Highlands teams in Bowral.

    There will be cricket in Cooma the following weekend and the side would love a bit of local support for these games.
