TC dominates

U16s. TC Blues and Irishtown will play off in the Tall Timbers U16s Grand Final after Irishtown beat Marrawah on the last ball of the match.

In the first game of the day, Marrawah had a big win over Forest-Stanley.

Forest-Stanley batted first and scored 4/79 with Kaleb O’Halloran (31 not out) and Jarred Jackson (18) being the main contributors.

All Marrawah’s bowlers performed well with leg spin bowler Riley Popowski claiming the prize wicket of Kailon Oates for just six runs. Marrawah made short work of the chasing, losing no wickets and reaching the score in just 10 overs.

Joel Poke (30 retired not out), Logan Smith (20no) and Bryce Walters (11no) all batted well.

The second game was the match of the day with Marrawah batting first and reaching 10/107 from their 20 overs.

Joel Poke (38) batted superbly while Bailey Grey (11) and Ben Spinks (10) also batted well.

Irishtown bowlers bowled tight with Taylor Woulleman taking 4/6 off two overs and being the stand out player.

Irishtown lost two early wickets before Taylor Ainslie (23) and Ethan Jackson (34) steadied the innings. Logan Smith ran out Ainslie which changed the game quickly and wickets tumbled.

It came down to Irishtown needing two runs off the last ball and Jackson put it away for four to see his team move into the final.

Ben Spinks 2/8 and Ryley Popowski 2/10 were the main wicket takers for Marrawah.

The last match of the day saw TC Blues completely dominate Irishtown.

Irishtown batted first with their top five batsmen only making six runs between them as Jake Grey and Lochie Blakemore collecting two wickets each and Jake Roberts getting the other.

Cody Lambert (31) helped Irishtown to an under par score of 66 runs.

Roberts 3/9 was the best bowler for TC.

Brodie Davison looked to have put Irishtown back in the game as he sent three TC batters back to the pavilion, all bowled without scoring.

Sam Muller (30no) and Joel Keep (26no) were able to see TC win 3/71.

TC Blues will go into the final on Friday December 4 as favourites having won all their games.
