Match Report: Brackenfell III vs Young Peoples III

Brackenfell 3 opened their season against Young Peoples 3 on Saturday 18/10/2014 with a bonus point win. A scorcher of a day started early on Saturday morning to allow the players to watch the much anticipated Currie Cup Semi Final. Brackenfell won the toss and elected to bat first on a beautifully prepared wicket.

A few newcomers to the team were eager to start their season with their new club and did very well. Reinardt Archer got off to a good start with Tertius Dippenaar and Arthur Mostert adding to the scoreboard to gather a respectable 221/8 after 40 overs. Now it was up to the bowlers on a pitch that seemed to slow down as the day progressed. Newcomers Dudely Archer and Etienne van Dyk took the bulk of the wickets with the rest of the bowling attack adding to the wicket count.

Young Peoples were bowled out for a 104 runs and Brackenfell 3 won the match by 117 runs. Well done to the team and welcome to the new guys that joined us. That was just the start we needed for the season and a good foundation to build on.
