Orange’s junior cricketers wrapped up their seasons with grand finals played out over the weekend. 

Orange City were the big winners, picking up three grand final wins – in under 16s, under 13s and under 12s, while Kinross picked up a win in the under 14s. 

Cavaliers won the under 11s, leaving the previously undefeated CYMS 3-3 after the first over.

CYMS won the Thunder Girls’ Cricket League over Kinross. 

Under 16s saw Kinross put the pedal to the metal early, with Alex Brien (73) and Will Luelf (54) putting runs on the board early.

However, aside from Brad O’Brien’s 23 the lower order couldn’t go on with the scoring, with Kinross finishing on 174 from 28 overs. 

The Warriors passed the total in 27.3 overs on the back of Caleb Toms retiring on 50 not out.

He was ably assisted by Harry McGregor, who backed up his 3-24 with the ball with a 41 not out with willow in hand.

The Kinross under 14 side had more success after a five wicket haul from Saxon Buckley, with their 9-105 proving to be too much for Waratahs, who were bowled out for 80, despite the best efforts of Lawson Hamling who finished on 32. 

Buckley picked up 5-14 for Kinross, with Harry Sharpe providing more than handy backup with 2-6. 

For Waratahs, Bailey Brackenridge picked up 2-9 from five overs and Jack Brackenridge took 2-17. 

City defeated Cavaliers by five wickets in the under 13 final, with Matt McKenna (34) and Jarred Barnes (32) scoring the bulk of the runs for City. 

Every bowler took a wicket for City, with Hugh Corcoran leading with 3-16 and Murray Fisher taking 2-12. 

The under 12 result was similar, with City defeating CYMS by three wickets after Jaiden Power took 3-10 while bowling and then top scored while opening the batting with 19.

Cavs set an imposing 121, with Isaac Clarke and Oli Jarick making 21 and 16 respectively, while Knox Gibson took 2-10. 

Jarick took 3-3 from the first over, putting CYMS under immense pressure for the rest of the game.

They recovered well, making their way to 110 on the back of strong batting from George Tancred and Taj Jordan both making 15. 

The CYMS girls’ side took the win against Kinross in the Thunder Girls’ Cricket League, passing Kinross’ 4-50 without losing a wicket.

Alana Tracey and Brooke Windus were both unbeaten on 14 and 13, while 21 no balls and three wides didn’t help Kinross’ cause.
