Redlands Tigers have two teams – 4th and 6th Grade no 1 in the semi-finals commencing Saturday, 14 March 2015. Congratulations to all players who have represented Redlands this season.
1st Grade were bowled out 16 runs short of their first innings target but what a delight it was to see young gun Sam Heazlett blazing away, scoring 123 not out off 130 balls with 11 fours and 7 sixes. The Wynnum boys then decided to try for an outright setting Redlands 124 to win off 17 overs. The opposition did not count on Tigers wicket keeper James Peirson hitting 88 not out off 30 balls, and Marnus Labuschagne 34 runs off 29 balls for Redlands to win outright. Great cricket from both teams and good way to finish off the season!. Unfortunately Redlands fell a few points short of securing fourth place on the ladder.
2nd Grade were disappointing in their run case, needing a win to make the finals. Chasing Wynnum’s 213 runs, Redlands were bowled out for 102 with Sean Kelly 27, Cameron French 24 and Charles Mailli 19 were the only batsmen to reach double figures. Adam Pearson turned on a strong performance in Redlands 2nd innings scoring a century.
3rd Grade finished their season with a strong win against Wynnum with Paul Bonney 75, Scott McAuliffe 68 and Trent Conwell 40 not out playing some good cricket to comfortably win the game.
4th Grade secured their place in the finals with a win over Wynnum. Skipper Anthony Lewis scored 46, Josh Stevenson 30 and Michael Moss 28. If this team finds that extra bit of form they should make the final.
5th Grade won a close game at home against Wynnum on Sunday but unfortunately missed out on a place in the finals by a narrow margin. Captain Darrin Wallis, who has done a great job with this team throughout the season, took 3 wickets with Matthew Bloye and Mitch Davis both taking two wickets in a close finishing game.
6th grade no 1 team scored an outright win against Wynnum and have secured a home semi final. The Redlands bowlers performed well for their skipper Dom Cassell with Scott Butters and Nirosh Amadoruge both taking 5 wickets for the match, with valuable support given by Uwan Porage and Jordan Telford both taking 3 wickets.
6th Grade no 2 were chasing Toombul’s score of 204 and won a close finishing game with Greg Morton scoring a timely 117 runs and Elliott Himmelberg 53, saving the day for the Tigers. Although not in the finals this side has shown plenty of positives to build on for the future. Thank you to Captain James Read and the senior players for their mighty efforts throughout the season.
Redlands retained the Mark Gaskell Shield in the battle of the Bayside teams. Well done to all players.
