Week 7 - Saturday 18 March 2017
Seniors - Yr 10/ 11/ 12
Pulteney 7/140 (Wilson 67) defeated by Unley High 7/164 (Rowett 2/12, Geddes-Ryan 2/31, Ruciak 1/2)
Unley batted first and it was immediately obvious we had our hands full. They had very good players who, despite good bowling by Charlie Rowe and Liam Geddes-Ryan, were able to score quickly. Late wickets slowed the run rate but we were left with a challenging target to chase. Like their batting, their bowling attack was strong and Tom Rundle and Ed Knights did well early to keep them out. Nik Wilson batted very well but needing 30 off the last 2 overs proved too much and we lost 4 wickets (2 runouts) in a brave attempt to get close. A pleasing effort against a strong opposition.
Mark Webber - Coach
PGS 9/144 (Shawgi 26, Beahan 22, Craddock 19, Dolphin 17 ret., Strawbridge 15, Creaser 14) v Immanuel College - Day 1
Winning the toss and electing to bat, Pulteney reached a credible 144 from almost 45 overs. Craddock and Strawbridge scored 31 for the first wicket, with even contributions from Dolphin and Creaser in the middle order. However, Shawgi proved to be the glue that held the innings together, with a fine score of 26 runs from our youngest player. Beahan finished the innings with a flourish, one ball short of our target to bat for 45 overs.
Malcolm Dolman Coach
Pulteney 7/99 (Felix Jones 48 not out, Henry Bradley 13) defeated St.Peters 6/74
Some of our batsmen missed an opportunity to score runs through poor stroke selection. Felix Jones strode to the crease at 2/4 and played a superb undefeated innings. Partnerships of 26 with Henry Bradley and 25 with Hudson Loftes steered us to a respectable total. Each of our nine bowlers then applied enough pressure to restrict the opposition’s run rate, enabling us to secure victory by 25 runs. Five wins from five matches is a significant achievement, but we look forward to a much bigger challenge against Scotch College next week.
