UHS 1st XI vs Woodridge 1st – 50 overs
On Saturday Union took on Woodridge again in a 50 overs match.
Woodridge won the toss and sent Union in to bat.
After a shaky start losing two quick wickets Matt Harpur and Cowan Swartz knuckled down and put together a well-played 50 run partnership laying what was looking to be the perfect platform, however we lost both batsmen in short succession and left Luke McNaughton and Caerwyn Spence to try and rebuild the innings who managed a 40 run partnership. Unfortunately neither were able to take advantage of their starts and fell to good consistent bowling and we were bowled out for 159 in 48 overs.
Batting: Luke McNaughton 37; Caerwyn Spence 33; Cowan Swartz 30.
Woodridge then came in to bat and Unions bowlers struggled to find their line and length coupled with a fair amount of missed chances allowed Woodridge to cruise to victory with only 5 wickets down.
