Our 1st grade men made a solid start in their first practise game of the season against souths at souths on Saturday. On what was a short turnaround with limited preparation due to the community sport restrictions the guys gave a solid account for themselves with a 6 wicket victory. The lads chased down 193 in the 45th over with all batters showing they are in decent form and showed the solid pre season they’ve all had with everyone spending a bit if time out in the middle. All bowlers performed solidly and the spin twins of Dooley and Beveridge were miserly through the middle overs. Darcy Murphy 3 wickets, Steve Paulsen 2 wickets, Aidan Watterson 1 wicket, Paddy Dooley 1 wicket and Zac Beveridge got 1 wicket. Sam Truloff finished with 85 not out with the bat and solid contribution from opener Isaiah Snell 26 and middle order batsman Max Carlyon 31 and Sam Dennien 24 off 32.
This Saturday sees 1st grade take on Norths on Graceville 1 in another practise game with 2nd/3rd grade playing a practise game against Norths on Graceville 2.
All the best to all the westies playing in the 1st round of the BPL this Sunday out at Ivor Marsden. Matches will be streamed on Kayo so get on and have a watch!!
