Comments Off on PCA v Old Sydneyians at Wiegall No. 1 – 19 January 2012

The Primary Club won the toss and elected to bat.

Joff Johnson, making his debut for the PCA, opened the innings with Ray Thompson. The openers made solid if slow start to the innings in the face of some very good bowling from the Old Sydneyians. After Ray’s dismissal, wickets fell at regular intervals and our innings never really had any momentum. It was a rear-guard, swashbuckling innings from Damien Bray, batting at No. 9, that was the feature of the PCA innings. Damien scored 37 runs in very quick time to give the total some semblance of respectability, eventually getting well caught on the longest boundary of the field. Others to contribute with the bat were Joff Johnson (23), Ron Bowden (13) and Peter Mullane (12). However, with an innings total of 117 runs, it was going to be very hard to defend.

The captain Joe Scarcella and David Cush opened the bowling. The batsmen went on the attack from the outset. David bowled well but without luck. Joe managed to take the wickets of both openers with successive deliveries. However the number 3 and 4 batsmen continued in the same attacking vein before finally reaching the target in the 19th over.

The result:

PCA – 8/117 (35 overs) lost to Old Sydenyians – 2/118 (19 overs)

The team:
Joe Scarcella (c), Ray Thompson, Joff Johnson, Mark Clarebrough, Nick Cassimatis, Ron Bowden, Peter Mullane, Ted Harvey, Damien Bray, David Cush, Rick Glover.

Batting:
D. Bray (37), J Johnson (23)

Bowling:
J. Scarcella 2 /21 (6 overs)
