For the second time this season we played against Barwick. It was dry but a little cold especially if you were stood umpiring 🥶. Luca captained the side today for the first time in a 10 a side/ 20 over game. Barwick won the toss and opted to bat first.
There were a lot of great things to speak about today in all areas of the game but as coaches we were extremely pleased with the quality of fielding on show. In training we work a lot on our positioning and 'backing up' one another which may sound simple but takes a lot of focus and concentration to do in a game. This was probably the best we had seem the the team do this which was fantastic! Marcus, Henry, Luca, Arthur, Joe and Maxwell all got a wicket each but overall the team did an amazing keeping the runs low against some very good batting form Barwick 👍
When it come to batting Carton had an excellent innings overall scoring over 100 runs collectively. Joe and Marcus scored 41 runs with Joe also getting the highest individual score of the day with 26 runs which included his and the teams first 6!!! Henry and Maxwell followed up with 22 runs against some great bowling from Barwick. Thomas and Harry manged 16 runs with 2 excellent 4s from Thomas. William and Luca scored an incredible 38 runs with William scoring 5 boundaries 👏 Arthur and Louis finished the innings with 16 runs and a good day overall.
We say the same every week but it is great to see the team develop so quickly over a short period of time. This was an excellent game to watch on both sides! Big thanks to Barwick and good luck for the rest of the season.
Final score Carlton 307 Barwick 227
