Canowindra Tyre Service played at home on Saturday, with Levi Strange winning the toss. Grenfell were asked to have a bat. Their top order laid a solid platform, attacking anything short. With some determined fielding leading to two runouts we pegged their scoring back to 108 off their 20 overs, with Beau, Riley and Mitch C the pick of the bowlers.
We unfortunately were unable to find the boundary enough to push the run rate along until our retired top order returned. Riley played some magnificent shots including an impressive lofted on drive for four, straight out of the test book. We ultimately ran out of overs but a solid run chase to reach 74.
The Canowindra Tyre Service Player of the Week went to Riley Bollinger for a solid contribution with bat and ball. Mitchell Stephens was awarded the encouragement award for controlled batting effort.

On Saturday the Services Club team played the Cowra Scorchers at the Clyburn Oval. Scorchers won the toss and elected to bat, scoring a total of 106 runs.
The bowling was the best of the year from the kids with the least amount of extras bowled in a game.
The Scorchers are the number 1 side in the comp with some very capable batsman who hit the ball hard but the fielding was outstanding and easily saved 20 or more runs. We started the batting strong with Hayden Whatman blasting 21 off 12 balls but the middle order suffered four quick run outs and let the Scorchers back in the match.
A 34 run partnership for the last wicket between Toby Fisher (26 not out) and Jay Burn (10 runs) was the highlight of the day. At one point it looked like the two boys would get the runs needed for a win but Jay was caught at mid-on by a diving player who took a ripper catch, with that we were all out 9 for 86 failing 20 runs short. Jay Burn was player of the week for his best batting of the season.
