Sporting Alfas Cricket Club Sporting Alfas Academy v Merchant Taylors School on Tue 25 Mar 2008 at 12.30
Sporting Alfas Cricket Club Lost by three wickets

Match report Tuesday, March 25th

SACC Academy 121 all out (29.2 overs)
MTS CC U15s 122-7 (25.1 overs)

On a somewhat blustery afternoon at the Woodbridge Oval, Merchant Taylors won the toss and elected to put Alfas into bat. The openers B. Seekings and J. Hersh made a solid start against a very good opening bowling attack with Seekings in particular looking in good touch. Alas he mistimed a drive and spilled a catch to mid-off and in came C. Munoz who proceeded to make a splendid and timely 65. Unfortunately having seen off the opening pair Hersh was bowled and from then on batsmen came and went at regular intervals. With the help of some quick runs from Alfas's tailenders the home side's score reached 121 which seemed at the time at least 50 runs short of par.

After the burger break Merchant Taylors went into bat. After a fine spell by both Alfas's opening bowlers and then with the advent of A. Daley (2 wickets) well supported by J. Hersh (1 wicket), and then B. Seekings (2 wickets) wickets began to fall until the visitors were reduced to 90 for 7 with a victory for the home side looking distinctly possible. However a fine stand of 35 from Davies and Maini helped the visitors over the line.

All in all it was very entertaining cricket where Alfas's fielding and bowling aided by some fine wicket keeping from C. Johnson nearly made up for Alfas's lack of runs and produced an exciting finish.
