Portland under 10’s traveled to Bathurst last Saturday to take on the very strong All Saints College team with ASC winning the toss and sending Portland into bat.
There was some great fielding from ASC with 5 direct hits, running Portland out 5 times.
The best for Portland with the bat was Kye Cameron, again hitting some classy shots and scoring a good 23. Close behind were Braith Green, Tomas Huijser, Deacon Cutting Conner Miles and Ben McKulkin, with Portland scoring a total of 105.
The best for Portland with the ball was Deacon Cutting, 2 for 5 of his overs, and Thomas Huijser, 1 for 5 off his overs. Close behind them with the ball were Braith Green 1 for 5, Logan Ward 1 for 7, Joel Lamb 2 for 20, Cody Philips 1 for 11, and Ben McKulkin 2 for 10. Together they bowled ASC out for 106.
With Portland getting 10 wicket and ASC getting 9 wicket Portland Bluetongues won the game, which makes that 5 from 5 wins this year.
