The under 11B team proved to be the shining light for Jamberoo Cricket Club during week 15 of the 2017/18 South Coast District Cricket season as they notched up their second victory in as many games.

The Bulls got the better of their opponents with a comfortable 38 run victory over The Rail Red at Keith Irvine Mini Oval.

The hosts only lost one wicket in their entire innings of 1/148, as Jordan Poole produced a career best knock of 44 retired not out and did plenty of damage in his incredible bowling spell of 4/8, while Cooper Anderson 28 and Max Palk 8 all had great games for Jamberoo.

The visitors were restricted to 8/110, which secured Jamberoo’s seventh victory for the season.  

In the under 14B team combined competition with Keira enjoyed a much needed victory over Jamberoo/Albion Park by 56 runs.

Jett Presland had an excellent game with a top score of 25 with the bat and tight figures of 1/18 while Andrew Meijer 1/15 and Zac Brown 12 also put their best foot forward.

Jamberoo second grade came close to three consecutive victories as the Kookas caused an upset by 48 runs at Keith Irvine Oval.

The Kookas were bowled out for 238 as Jamberoo put up a solid performance in the field.

The chase proved to be a tough one for the hosts as they were 7/113 before Brian Harris and Jacob Hudson produced an excellent eighth wicket partnership worth 73 to put their side back into the battle.

Brian Harris top scored with a rapid fire 48 while Chris McDonald 32, Jacob Hudson 30* and Kyle Stokes 20 also impressed as the Bulls completed the innings at all out for 190 after 35 overs.

Jamberoo third grade did the best they could during their eight wicket loss to Lake Illawarra at Morley Park West.

The visitors won the toss and elected to bat in very humid conditions for cricket and with just nine players they compiled an all out score of 135.

Mick Welch top scored with briskly paced 58 while top order batsmen Issac Hudson hung around for majority of the innings with a gutsy and hard fought innings of 38.

The hosts managed to eclipse their opponents total in 25 overs finishing the match at 2/137. Josh Dun finished with best figures of 1/35 while Ryan Tritton bowled tight in his spell of 0/35.
