Representative Cricket: Parkes under 14s score BIG win at Wellington! On Sunday, February 3 the Parkes under 14 team travelled to Wellington to play Wellington under 14s at the scenic Pioneer Park turf wicket. Parkes scored a convincing 154 run victory, scores were – Parkes 4/236 off 40 overs defeated Wellington 82 in 37.2 overs.

Several Parkes players turned in excellent performances in this game, Liam Moody (83 runs from 101 balls which included nine fours), Hunter Hawke (56 runs from 78 balls with five fours and one six) and Maddy Spence (13 n.o off 14 balls and 4/8 off eight overs) really stand out.

Batting first Parkes received a good 35 run opening partnership from Joseph Tanswell (14) and Liam Moody, before Liam and Hunter combined to put on a 146 runs for the second wicket in a splendid exhibition of quality batting.

Both players were patient in defending good bowling and being aggressive to any wayward bowling. Liam Moody most certainly demonstrated that he is a vastly improved player.

As his innings progressed he really launched into a fine variety of strokes – hitting three fours in one over at one stage. Hunter Hawke should be proud of his initial fifty at representative level. He concentrated hard and played a terrific on drive that went for six that was a high light of his innings.

Rayn Dunford (10), Maddy Spence (13 n.o) and Ewan Moody 15 n.o) added brisk runs at the end of the Parkes innings. Wellingtons best bowlers were Lachlan George (1/29 off seven overs) and Zeke Heterick (2/46 off seven overs).

In reply Parkes opening bowlers Ryan Dunford and Maddy Spence smashed through the early order Wellington batting line up to see Wellington reeling at 3/6 after four overs. Parkes then gave the majority of their players a chance to bowl as Wellington batted defiantly with Nate Bradford (10), Lachlan George (24) and Jussie Duffield (12) offering stout resistance.

Parkes bowling figures were – Ryan Dunford (2/17 off eight overs), Maddy Spence (4/8 off eight overs), Flynn Thompson (1/6 off two overs), Lachlan Plummer (0/5 off two overs), Triston Ross (1/8 off five overs), Ewan Moody (0/1 off two overs), Harry Kennedy (0/1 off one over), Geordie Duncan (0/2 off one over) and Liam Moody (1/3 off 1.2 overs).

Smart catches were taken by Flynn Thompson, Ryan Dunford (2), Hunter Hawke and Maddy Spence who took an outstanding caught and bowled catch while Joseph Tanswell put in a good display behind the stumps as wicket keeper. Parkes coaches Clinton Hawke and Phil Dunford congratulated the Parkes players on a good team effort to score such a convincing victory over a gallant Wellington team.

Many thanks to those Parkes parents/supporters who provided transport to/from Wellington for the Parkes under 14 players. Parkes under 12s to travel to Dubbo on Sunday, February 10. The Parkes under 12 team are scheduled to play Dubbo White at Dubbo this Sunday.

So far in the 2018/2019 Lachlan U/12 Competition the Parkes under 12s remain undefeated with results: October 21, 2018 – Parkes 8/111 defeated Dubbo White 64 at Parkes. December 16, 2018 – Parkes 5/108 defeated Dubbo Blue 7/104 at Dubbo.

Therefore the Parkes under 12s will need to go all out to maintain their undefeated record this season when they travel to Dubbo. The Parkes team was to be finalised at training this past week under Coach Shane Jones. Parents and players will need to meet at the Church Street Bus Stop at 7.50am on Sunday morning to arrange transport to and from Dubbo.

The co-operation of parents in relation to transport is greatly appreciated. It is recommended that Parkes players bring their lunch and plenty of drinks. The game starts at 10am. As the end of the Lachlan under 12 season draws to a close the draw for the next few weeks is –

  • February 17 – Parkes versus Dubbo Blue in Parkes.
  • February 24 – Inter-Town Semi Finals.
  • March 3 – Inter-Town Final.
