GREAT Lakes won the toss and decided to bat on a damp wicket in the under 12 cricket match against Old Bar.
Openers Alan Thomas (9) and Bradley Solway (16) put on their best partnership of 26 which was broken by Jacob Nash who was aided by Daniel Hardyman with a great catch.
This was the start of a general procession of batsmen back to the sheds as the Lakes were all out for 42. Bar's bowling proved to very accurate with five of the Lakes batsmen being bowled.
Miranda Fuller with 1/2 had Thomas caught by the keeper Dane Hinton. Not to be outdone brother Josh Rees (2/1) had the next batsman caught by Daniel at short mid off and bowled another batsman.
Scnura Scnanayake bowled Will Knight with a great off cutter. Jackson O'Conner was unlucky not to take a wicket and finished with 0/3. Dane Hinton then handed over the keeping gloves to Daniel and cleaned up two more batsmen, both bowled. Opening bowler Luke Earley then came back into the attack and bowled the last batsman.
The Bar's opening batsmen were greeted by hostile opening overs from Jack Howard, with the first ball being Mitch Johnson-like heading for Daniel's helmet.
He held his nerve and turned it to the leg side.
Once Dane and Daniel survived Jack's opening overs they settled down to see the Bar's score past the Lakes' total with some good batting.
Having seen the score past the Lakes total they both retired, making way for the other batsmen to have a hit.
The rest of the batsman retired after a short bat at the crease except one who was run out by a great return from Rogan Dickson. Rain had been falling very lightly then started to become heavier and play was abandoned for the day with Old Bar 1/83.
