Colts miss out on John Mayes Shield success on last ball of game
- Credit: Submitted
During the summer eight enthusiastic teams were whittled down to four finalists in the John Mayes Shield.
In the first semi-final the Thomas Paine Colts overcame a lively Groovy gang thanks to some fine batting by skipper D Greyson and Tristan Caley. Jeyes beat the Black Horse Knights in the second semi in a closely-matched game. In an entertaining game the Groovy Gang overcame the Black Horse Knights again in a close match.
Jeyes set the Thomas Paine Hotel Colts 106 off of their 10 overs. The Colts started brightly again with Greyson and Caley and were well on course at the midway stage, but when Caley retired (25) and Greyson was out for 20 they stuttered.
With a boundary required in the final ball only a single was achieved. Particular solo performances from the Thomas Paine Hotel Colts were Baulch, White and Funnell with the ball.
