SUNDAY SIDE DRAWS WITH NOMADS (TIMED GAME) BUT JUNIORS EXCEL
Chelsea Nomads 175 for 8; Ley Hill 81 for 9 (Timed game)
Sunday Skipper Paul Green won the toss and put Chelsea Nomads into bat. The score was jogging along fairly rapidly until the 6th over, when young Henry Sussum suddenly found his form and took 3 wickets in a devastating over. The wickets fell on the 3rd, 4th and 6th balls and he then followed it up with a 4th wicket in his next over as well. Nomads seemed to find batting difficult and only Fitzgerald (42), D. Hayes (54) and J. Asad (12) managed to get into double figures. Final score 175 for 8 from 40 overs.
In response, Ley Hill seemed to find scoring runs even more difficult! Only Jon Lown (28) and young Finn Cummins playing in his first all age match (10) managed to reach double figures but credit must go to Henry Sussum and Paul Green for hanging on grimly at the end of the innings (Henry for 21 balls and Paul for 9) so that at the end of the innings of 38 overs, the result was a draw.
