As we hit the the 3 month stage of the season, the weather finally looked and felt like summer! The U9’s and U15’s kicked off the week at SHBCC.
Firstly, the U11’s were hoping to continue there good cup run as they met Acomb in the semi finals. Batting first, SHBCC finished 111-5 from their 20 overs. In reply, Acomb knocked the total off 8 down with 1.3 overs to spare. A great effort from the youngsters who should be all proud of their efforts this season!
Back at Moor Farm, the 15’s played Woodhouse Grange. Batting first, SHBCC finished 80-9 from their 20 overs. Woodhouse Grange knocked the total off 3 down with 4.2 overs to spare. The guys were also in action on Thursday as they faced Dunnington in their last game of the season. Fielding first, SHBCC kept Dunnington to 114-4 in their 20 overs. In reply, the lads got close as they finished just 1 run short on 113-4. Will Warren making 37 in the run chase. John and Andy are really happy and proud of the effort from all the U15’s and other juniors who have helped out and kept the team going. A big thanks also goes to John and Andy for their hard work with the group over the past two seasons!
Wednesday saw the U9’s and Pilmoor teams in action. The U9’s travelled to Acomb, whilst the Pilmoor lads travelled to Helperby. Over at Acomb, fielding first SHBCC kept Acomb to 258-5 (net score). In reply, SHBCC finished 228-7 (net score) to fall 30 runs short. The U9’s finished 3rd in the table and have done excellent this year. A big well done to them all.
Over at Helperby, the pilmoor team were looking to take another step closer to the Pilmoor title. Fielding first, a good batting effort from Helperby got them to 135-1 from 20 overs. In reply, the chase looked under a bit of pressure; but 23 from Dan Cass and a quick 29 from Dave Henstock took the bridge over the line with one over to spare! With 4 games to go and a 6 point gap at the top, the lads could win the league at Clifton Alliance next week!
So as Saturday approached, the 1’s travelled to Sessay whilst the 2’s played host to Malton and Old Malton. At Moor Farm, the 2’s won the toss and put Malton into bat. After Malton were 50-1 from 6 overs, SHBCC managed to drag them back to an above average 263 all out in 49 overs. Nadeem Shefta finishing with 4-77. In reply, runs for Arthur Campion (54) and Paul Oldfield (54) got SHBCC to 105 without loss. As a few cheap wickets fell, only skipper Jack Hugill’s 44 kept the guys in with a chance, but unfortunately SHBCC finished 239-8. Even though the 2’s didn’t win, they received much needed points from the losing draw and go again against Driffield next week.
Over at Sessay, the 1’s were hoping to continue their winning streak. Batting first, SHBCC finished 294-7 from 50 overs with Dulash Udayanga making a stunning 120 and Eddie Barnes well supporting him with 83. In reply, Sessay finished 232-5 with Ed Barnes taking 2-34. Another 8 points for the lads as they keep marching on. A big well done To Dulash on his 1st hundred of the 2019 season for SHBCC.
