Torquay Colman blast way to T20 title
TORQUAY Colman clinched the Geelong Junior Cricket Association’s Under 15 Cameron T20 final last week, with a 38-run victory over Barwon Heads.
Torquay Colman coach Mark Patton said he was pleased with all his players’ contributions.
“It was an all-round team effort to win the grand final, which was very satisfying.”
Torquay won the toss and chose to bat first.
Jack Macpherson, Mackie Miller and Cooper Patton all made important contributions to help Torquay Colman to a strong total of 4/129.
Torquay Colman’s disciplined bowling then ensured a comfortable victory, as Barwon Heads ended 5/91.
All the seven bowlers Torquay used played their part, with all of them finishing with economy rates under seven.
Patton said he had enjoyed seeing each player improve their game over the season.
“Each individual has developed their own game really well, particularly in the second half of the season. They’ve improved with every match they’ve played.”
Patton said with the team contributing to the wealth of young talent at Torquay Tigers Cricket Club’s future, he is optimistic about the club’s future.
“We’re certainly well placed, we’ve got a really good junior program going and this season we had 11 junior teams.”
