With the rainy weather more like winter, the majority of the Margaret River Junior cricket teams were rained off on Saturday and it looked to be a wet start to the cricket season for the youngsters.

Nevertheless, Maurice Shinnick’s under 16’s travelled toChurchill Park to take on YOBS CricketClub, doing their best to ignore the clouds threatening to open up overhead.

Batting first, YOBS made 7/129 from their 30 overs with Thorp (31) and Luff (27) the highest scorers for the home team.

Oscar Herbst was the pick of the bowlers with 3/19 from 6 overs, while Sam Robins, playing an age group above where he could be, bowled incredibly well with 1/10 from 3 overs.

Jude Shinnick’s spell was incredible but without luck and finished with 0/7 from his 4 overs.

Chasing 130 for victory, at just over 4 per over, the run chase started of badly with Aiden Robins (1), Jude Shinnick (2) and Oscar Herbst, (0), all dismissed early.

Kurt Thompson hit 15 runs and with 25 from Jaz Kupfer-Hollis, the Hawks were in with a sniff.

However when Mason Beecham (4) and Killy Booth (0) were out, the visitors soon found themselvesin trouble.

Ben Shinnick, also stepping up a grade to play this week, showed his more-experienced team mates just how to start an innings with 12 runs.

It proved too little, too late for the Hawks despite a gutsy effort and they were dismissed for a total of just 74 runs.

The Chicken Treat Margaret River award for Player of the Day was passedto Sam Robins for a fantastic display in his debut in the under 16’s.

Club President Miles Mottershead said the junior playing groups were already boasting an impressive array of talent as well as great attitudes from young players.

“Weareproud to have such a good group of kids signing up to play this season, supported by their parents and families who get involved at the club and help out all year,” Mr Mottershead said.
