    Moora battle back but can’t hold out against champs Young guns: Dekan John Furnace on strike with batting partner Jordan Glover.

    TweetFacebookOn Sunday the Moora Knights travelled down to Bindoon to play the team at home. Bindoon won the toss and sent the Knights into bat first.

    The Knights continued with their horror start with the bat losing their first wicket in the first over with young Zac Bulpitt bowling out Simon Willmott.

    Joe Furnace and Phil Hayman once again formed a steady partnership until Phil on 24 runs was caught by T Blackley off the bowling of Cameron Yates.

    The Knights suffered a mini collapse, losing three of their batsman while only adding eight runs to their total with Jamie Mullins getting run out by Greenburg, Stewart Horton caught behind by Clayton Smith and Jayden Glover getting stumped off the bowling of spin bowler J Mc Andrew.

    Sixteen-year-old Dekan John Furnace joined his dad in the middle and between them pushed the score up to 54 before Joey (on 23 runs) was unlucky to get caught out on the boundary by a great catch by Dillon Summers.

    With Bindoon bowling tight Travis Howe departed after getting clean-bowled by Josh Brennan and Dave Glover was caught out by another great running catch by T Blackley also off Brennan’s bowling with the Knights sitting on eight for 69.

    With the Knights only having two wickets in hand Bindoon might have thought they were in with a very good chance to have all the Knights back in the shed well before the Knights could push their score up to a 100.

    But the tail-enders had other ideas, with Kaleb partnering his brother in the middle. The the two batted patiently and probably frustrated the Bindoon bowlers, staying together in the middle for seven overs until Kaleb was finally bowled out LBW by Jason Bulpitt with the Knights on 83 runs.

    Jordan Glover, the last batsman in for the Knights, formed a very mature partnership with Dekan with both waiting patiently for the bad ball they could punish accordingly.

    Even though Dekan was feeling a bit under the weather he soldiered on and was rewarded with his first 50 in Mens Cricket.

    After batting for 22 overs fatigue ended up being his worst enemy and on 51 runs he was finally removed from the crease, getting caught out by Clayton Smith off the bowling of Brad Pietraszek.

    Jordan finished in the red with 12 runs and the Knights ended their innings in the 41st over with 120 runs.

    Bindoon started their innings very similar to the Knights, losing Jason Bulpitt in their second over after he was clean-bowled by Jayden Glover with the score on three.

    Brad Pietraszek and Cameron Yates pushed their score up to 38 before Kody Glover removed Pietraszek LBW.

    Josh Brennan also batted well alongside Yates and they added another 24 runs to the score until a change in the bowling line ­up resulted in a wicket for the Knights on the first ball of the over for Phil Hayman when Yates (on 39 runs) delivered the ball straight into the safe hands of Jayden Glover.

    Dillon Summers in next didn’t last an over before getting caught out by a great diving catch by Travis Howe off the bowling of Dave Glover.

    J Shales made 15 runs before getting caught off the bowling of Jamie Mullins by a great running catch by Jayden Glover who would have covered at least 40m to take the catch.

    Clayton Smith alongside Brennan achieved their target in the 41st over, winning the game.

    With the score on 138 Josh Brennan (on 41 runs, the highest run scorer for Bindoon ) was finally removed from the crease after getting caught by Phil Hayman off Travis Howe’s bowling.

    Clayton Smith (on 19 runs) departed four runs later falling victim to a brilliant show of fielding by the Knights.

    Joey Furnace fielded the ball well to return it to wicketkeeper Stewart Horton, who on hearing the call at the other end threw the ball down the pitch resulting in a direct hit.

    The Knights claimed one more wicket in M Whitely after been clean-bowled by Kaleb John Furnace.

    Bindoon finished their innings on 8/152.

    With all seven bowlers claiming a wicket the most economical was Kody Glover (1/17 off 9) and Dave Glover (1/19 off 9). For Bindoon it was Cameron Yates (2/20 off 9 ) and J Mc Andrew (2/18 off 7).
