Sporting Alfas Cricket Club Won VCK 168-10 SACC 171-1

Match report Valeranga Cricket Klub 168- 10 Sacc 169-1

Valeranga came to the Woodbridge Oval,won the toss and had a bat. SACC thought that maybe the Norse Gods felt unkindly towards our seaside village and rape and pillage would be the order off the day as VCK reached 141 before losing the first wicket. Massive mistake, because what happened in the next 6 over's was truly a story to be told by our grandparents!. After giving the ball to Crompton, Skipper Laundon spotted a chink in the armour of the visitors and decided that leg spin both ends might slow the score rate and give SACC a fighting chance in what was surely going to be a huge VCK total, great decision as Spencer taking 5 - 1 and Crompton 4 - 22 stopped VCK in their tracks 168 all out, an amazing turnaround.
Howe and Spencer, as usual, walked out to face a young fierce attack, both bowlers playing for Norway' s under 19 side. Neither SACC batsmen fancied running and mesmerized the visitors in what can only be described as a batting massacre, Spencer striking the ball to all corners reaching 109 off 35 balls his total only included 1x6 but 24 x 4's an amazing feat. Howe fell for 27 and Crompton watched the Spencer onslaught finishing on 15 no. Spencer easily the man of the match finished on 109no and 5 wkts for 1 run.
SACC would like to thank VCK for their terrific attitude throughout the match.
Lets hope they can return next year.
Yet again a great day at the Oval enjoyed by the many regular supporters and a few new faces.
Next week the SACC 1st's take on the might of the MCC on Sunday starting at 1-00 pm, we hope you can join us.
