Horsefly Slog League:

On 25 March the final of the Horsefly Slog League was played between the Payn Reapers and the Grice Griffins.

The Griffins won the toss and elected to bat first on a soft green wicket. Qhayiya Makanya opened the bowling with an economical first over. The Griffins top order were solid during the opening few overs setting a solid base for the remainder of the innings. The Griffins ended their innings on 72/2 after 10 overs.

Chasing 73 runs to lift the trophy, the Reapers started conservatively and lost wickets at regular intervals. The Reapers ended their innings on 59/7 after their allotted overs allowing the Griffins to emerge victorious after a gruelling five weeks of fixtures.

Thank you to Mr A Dudas for organising the HSL giving our U14s an opportunity to play some valuable cricket.
