Mathew Axtill during his patient knock.


Parkview PS has gone down in a tightly contested first round match of the NSWPSSA State Cricket Knockout against Leeton PS at the LHS Ovals last Wednesday.

After losing the toss and being asked to bowl, Parkview bowled and fielded very well, restricting their opponents to 3/82 from their 20 overs. Michael Keech took 2/11 from his four overs while Mathew Axtill was just as economical despite not securing a wicket. Dylan McKellar was the other wicket taker, finishing with figures of 1/3 after completing an excellent caught and bowled dismissal, while Will Grantham bowled very well without luck.

Requiring just over four runs an over, Parkview lost early wickets to be 2/12 before Mathew Axtill and Jaykob Williams came together for a promising 22 run stand in just over 7 overs. The run rate slowed significantly after Jaykob's dismissal and despite Mathew batting through the innings (a terrific achievement on a hot day) and the efforts of the other batsmen, Parkview eventually fell 24 runs short, closing at 7/58 after 20 overs.

Congratulations to all of the boys on a terrific effort and thanks to the parents who supported the team through transport, scoring, use of equipment, training and on game day.
