Cougars put the bite on U10s new boys
Published 02/06/14



HURLEY Under-10s played their opening match of the season on Sunday away to the Henley Cougars.

With half of the Hurley team making their playing debut the fixture appeared to be a tough one for the young players.

Skipper Connor Botha won the toss for Hurley and chose to field.

There were several fine performances from the Hurley bowlers.

Dilsher Bagri (1-16) and Morgan Phillips (1-14) took the two wickets. Good fielding in the outfield prevented a number of shots reaching the boundary. Henley Cougars closed on 327-2.


Opening the batting for the Hurley side, Harrison Blumfield smashed a confident boundary while his partner Henry Drew found the gaps to score three singles.

Further down the order, Archie Wood, Morgan Phillips and Noah Drew each top-scored with six runs while Will Atkinson, Louis Swinburne-Johnson and Fergus Heggie all kept their wickets intact.

Botha was particularly unlucky to see his well-hit shot caught at mid-on.

This was the only wicket that fell to the Henley Cougar’s excellent bowlers.

The other two Hurley wickets fell to some poor decision-making running between the wickets.

Hurley closed on 249-3 in a promising opening fixture.
