THE Men’s Solargain Triples were played on the weekend and good bowls were played over the two days. Sections were played and the winner of each played off in a tight game of bowls. Jamie Parker (skip), Ron Guilfoyle and Jim McElroy won their section and Brian Bass (skip), Kevin McKenzie and Ray Colgan won theirs. Brian Bass’ team started off and won the first three ends. Both leads for their respective teams bowled well to keep each team in the game and by the sixth end Jamie Parker’s team led five to three. Second were doing their part and the skips were handling their shots to add or bust the game open. By the 13th end it was 10 all and by the 15th end Brian Bass and his team took a four-shot lead in the closing stages. A great game of bowls by the two teams which could have gone either way. Well played both teams.

Cricket – junior
YEAR 8's: Last Saturday the Year 8 team travelled down to Grammer school for the first game of the season. This season the games are 30 overs each split in to four quarters, alternating between batting and bowling.
Collie lost the toss and were sent in to bat first. Judd Rinder opened the batting with Max Ireland and the pair made a solid start before Ireland was out for 19 with the score 1/39. Ireland’s first ball faced for the season was smashed to the square leg boundary in great fashion. Baxter Miller came in at 3, and along with Rinder batted well to keep the scoreboard ticking over with good running between wickets. The pair took the score to 1/71 at the end of our first 15 overs. Rinder, who was a little reluctant to open, made batting look easy and went to the change 33 not out.
Collie's turn to bowl and Jackson Broadbent opened with Zak Reuben. Reuben took the first wicket with the score on four caught by last season's "butter fingers" Adam Worlley. Broadbent bowled well without luck and his first three overs only conceded one run. Robbie Chitty playing his first competitive game came on and bowled well for 3 overs 0/9. Adam Worlley took the next two wickets, one caught and bowled and one caught by Liam Wilson. With the score on 3/20 after a solid first 12 overs of bowling, Miller made it 4/20 at the start of the 13th sending the stumps flying. At the 15 over change Grammer were 4/30.
With a lead of 41, Rinder and Baxter Miller were sent back out for the second stint batting. Miller was retired for a well made highest ever score of 17 which brought big hitting Blayden Coverley to the crease. Coverley was lucky not to be caught first ball after skying a ball that he tried to hit to the other side of Bunbury. Unfortunately he was run out not long after for one with the score 2/88. Archie Boyle joined Rinder and batted steady while Judd got himself to the 50 milestone. Very well batted by Judd and a well deserved 50. With limited overs left the rest of the batting order was quickly rotated through to give all the boys a quick hit in the middle. Boyle was retired on three, Liam Wilson, Adam Worlley, Zak Reuben and Taj Jackson all retired on one and Broadbent went down swinging for a duck. Robbie Chitty made six, run out on the last ball trying to pinch an extra run for the team. Collie finished 4/120.
Grammer then resumed on 4/30 and a newcomer to Collie and the team Jackson bowled his first three overs for the club. After conceding eight runs in his first over he then steadied with great encouragement from his new team and finished 3 overs 0/12. Max Ireland bowled 2 overs 0/7 and Coverley 2 overs 0/14. The fifth wicket then fell on 50 caught by Chitty bowled Wilson (2 overs 1/8). The score become 6/75 with a wicket caught by Broadbent bowled Archie Boyle (2 overs 1/11), then 7/77 when Rinder (2 overs 1/4) got a wicket with Worlley taking his third catch. Not enough yet to shake the butterfingers tag, but a good start. Worlley then took the next two wickets with the score on 82 with successive balls caught by Ireland and Chitty. Worlley couldn't manage the hat-trick sending down a waist high full toss but finished with 4 overs 4/8. Broadbent bowled his third maiden for the day and finished with 4 overs 0/1 showing good control with the ball. The last wicket fell on 85 when Reuben found the edge and caught by keeper Miller, finishing with 3.4 overs 2/7. Miller and Ireland both kept extremely well and only conceded two byes in 30 overs. Collie won by 35 runs.
YEAR 7's: Last Sunday the first game for a Collie Year 7 team was played against Marist at Wallsend Ground. These games are also 30 overs per team played in 4 x 15 over quarters. The toss was won by Collie and Marist were sent in to bat first.
The first over was sent down by a young and enthusiastic left arm weapon Monty Dallywater. With the first ball of the innings and season Monty destroyed the stumps for his first wicket. 1/0 then become 2/5 when the left arm weapon once again rattled the stumps to end the first over. Not a bad effort for a lad still in Year 3 who finished 3 overs 2/14. Lucas Worlley opened at the other end to complete the shortest opening pair of bowlers we may ever see. Worlley bowled 3 overs 0/17. Deegan Cummings then bowled 3 overs 0/20 and Cody Irvine's first 3 overs were steady and went for 0/7. The third wicket fell on 40 with a run out. Jett Pike bowled 2 overs 0/7 and Marshall Putland 1 over 0/4. At the end of 15 overs Marist were 3/69.
Collie's turn to bat and Blake Rees opened with Cummings. Rees was first player out for 1 with the score on 3. Irvine joined Cummings and the pair batted very well to add 27 for the second wicket. Cummings played some powerful shots and was out on 15 leaving Collie 2/30. Alby Bebbington came in and scored eight before being caught with the score 3/49, then Irvine was out for 11 with the score 4/52. Dallywater and Worlley then unfortunately both scored ducks and all of a sudden the team was 6/57. After 15 overs Collie were 6/62.
Resuming on 3/69 Marist were quickly reigned in after the break with some very good bowling. Rees rattled the wickets twice with the score on 71 then 72. Rees bowled 2 overs 2/9. When Oliver McLean broke through for his first wicket, once again bowled, Marist were 6/72. A run out with the score on 76 followed by another wicket bowled by McLean the score was 8/85 and the Collie boys were really starting to enjoy their great work. McLean finished with a very impressive 3 overs 2/7. Bebbington bowled 2 overs 0/6 and Blake Shepherd 2 overs 0/5 before Cody Irvine come back to claim the last wicket caught by Oliver McLean to finish with 3.2 overs 1/7. Marist finished on 9/96 meaning Collie needed 35 to win off 15 overs with three wickets in hand.
Shepherd and Jett Pike both batted very well indeed after the break and the pair pushed the scoring along getting Collie close to securing a win. Shepherd had to retire at the mandatory 35 ball mark on 13 then Pike was out for 8 leaving Collie 7/93, just four short of victory. McLean and first gamer Putland put on a 40-run partnership to secure a first up win with the help of quite a few sundries bowled by Marist. McLean was run out for 4 with the score 8/133, then Shepherd returned to bat out the rest of the overs with Putland. Shepherd finished with a very well made 16 not out and Putland not out 14, another great effort for a first game player. Collie won by 47 runs.
