Gold triumph in big Under 11 derby clash
In the final league match of the 2016 Under 11 season, Marshfield Gold played Marshfield Maroon at a blustery Broadleys. Having been invited to bat, Gold batted steadily against some good bowling and fielding from the Maroon boys and a moderate total seemed likely. However, the final pairing of Josh and Harvey had other ideas and their four overs saw a dazzling array of strokes all around the wicket with a steady stream of boundaries. This final onslaught saw Gold reached a commanding total of 314-2 (net 304). In reply, Gold were always in control and steady bowling backed up by good fielding restricted Maroon to 288-6 (net 258) giving a 46 runs victory to the Gold team.
All the players performed well in an enjoyable game played in great spirit. Thanks go to the parents who supported in the cold conditions and especially to Bec for scoring and Alex for providing the after-match BBQ.
