They did it! Mitchell and his team won the
2011/2012 H Grade Cricket Grand Final!
(That's Mitchell giving the thumbs up!)
As I mentioned in my post here, the boys had to stay in for as long as they could for the 68 overs. By tea break they were 3 for 91 with only 30 or so overs left to go. That meant Whittlesea still had to get the other 7 players out and then make more runs than Diamond Creek. Whittlesea conceded defeat thus giving Diamond Creek the premiership. The Whittlesea team were great competitors.
Everyone played so well during the final. This team consisted mainly of junior players (this was the senior competition). There were three Under 16 players (Mitchell, Dale and Jake, above) and five Under 14 players. For these boys it was their first season playing seniors. What a great start to their seniors cricketing!
Congratulations to the
Diamond Creek 2011/2012 H Grade Premiers!
