One Day Competition - President Cardinals vs Sumner, Barnett Park, Presidents, 9th February 2013
Boothy won the toss for Sumner and they batted, as they only had nine men but a tenth was on his way. (However he only arrived in time to field.)
They were on the back foot from the first over when Brenden removed the dangerous Yocky, very well caught by Jeremy diving low to his left at cover. Boothy then understandable dropped anchor but when Dave removed him with one that bounced off a length and lobbed off the shoulder of the bat to Brenden at slip, the writing was on the wall for them.
Dave McConnell was the only other resistance getting to 31, but he was eventually last out totally deceived - bowled by a beautiful slower ball by Yogi, and they were all out for 86!
Everyone bowled well and accurately with the figures being:
Kev M 8-0-15-1
While the fielding was also very good with only two extremely hard chances being dropped and six catches taken - Jeremy 3, Brenden 1, Dave 1, Jules (bravely playing despite man-flu) 1.
When we batted Fergus got us off to a bright start with three spanking boundaries and with Spency anchoring an end, we eventually cruised in by 7 wickets.
Yogi 9 (out to a brilliant catch at point)
Special thanks to Brenden's mate Danny who didn't bat or bowl, but did make one brilliant save in the field and particularly excelled by bringing along a dozen of Speights, to make it a great debut for him!!
Thanks also to the skip for kindly putting on some beers and food back at the Speights Ale House, Ferrymead.
