Jono Sole won the toss and, with plenty of long grass on the wicket chose to bowl. Kingy was destructive taking both openers and the newly contracted Malcolm Nofals scalps with the new ball, whilst Mitch Butler, playing his first match of the summer in the 1's was miserly at the other end. Both let the odd wide slip into the mix - a trend that unfortunately continued throughout the entire Onslow betting innings. 41 extra's was by far and away the top score for Onslow as they lost wickets regularly on their way to 98-8. Pete was getting some vicious bite oute out of the wicket but it was the outfields bite that turned the game on its head. Pete went to field an inocuous ball hit back to him along the ground only for it to rear up and hit him in the mouth. Pete bolted to hospital and didn't return to the field of play. We were down our gun leggie and our number three on a tricky wicket. A tail guard action saw them scrap through to 155 before they were bowled out. Kingy took 3-37, Mitch 1-30 and Sewell chimed in with 3-20 off 5 and a bit overs.
We got some starts with the bat but the 155 proved far too much. They were better with the ball, giving away far less extras, and we lost regular wickets to be dismissed for 99.
Onwards and upwards though - next week we are playing at the Rose Garden against Wgtn Collegians.
