GPS Cricket Round 5 TSS vs TGS 2020

Round 5 of the GPS cricket saw TSS play a host of games played vs GPS “Heavy Weights” TGS.

The TGS Round of fixtures are much anticipated in the spirit that the games are played. There were many outstanding performances and TSS won a host of games including 1st XI, 2nd XI, 11A, 11B, 10B, 10C, 9A, 8A, 7A, 7B, 7C & 7E. The TSS Prep boys performed admirably with 6A, 6B, 6C & 5B Teams winning their games. In particular, the 2nd XI Game was a ‘cliff hanger” with 1 run needed with only 1 wicket in hand and the TSS Year 7 Teams enjoyed a day out.

There was some very notable contributions around the grounds with Sam Strid 4/21 in 2nd XI, Jack Biddle 53no & Hugo Monie 4/8 in 3rd XI, Max Eckersley amongst the runs again with 43no in 11A, William Jackson 65 in 10B’s, Griff Williams 61, Daniel Statham 54* in 9A’s win and Ryan Summers 47 in 8A’s win were special achievements. Special mention to Archie Woods who secured an incredible 7 wicket haul including a hattrick in the 10B’s victory.

1st XI TSS batted first and with our openers in control looked to score a large total. Playing shots all around the ground Tom Gossett top scored with 80 and with great support from Lachlan Crump 43, TSS finished 5 for 261. With TGS looking to get off to a quick start, it was in the second over the TGS openers took a quick single to Sam Heathwood who threw down the stumps for the first run out of the day. With TSS up and about Louis Chabert dismissed TGS's best batsman, Mitchell Doolan. From then on TSS spinners took control. Finn Smith took another 3 catches and TGS were eventually bowled out for 94. Liam O'Connor was the best of the bowlers taking 4 wickets, with Jack Sinfield taking 2. A great team performance by TSS who have picked up 2 bonus points and are now sitting 1 point clear on top of the table. TSS now look forward to playing BGS on the Village Green next week.
