Green Shield vs North Sydney - Round 5 - 2016/17

The Gordon boys arrived at Tunks Park full of confidence after winning 3 in a row and still having not been beaten in the tournament to date. 

The match against North Sydney was delayed due to the consistent and annoying rain that continued to fall on and off for several hours meaning the game was shortened to a 33 over match. 

Ethan Garrett was one of the stand out bowlers 

The game finally got under way around 2.00pm.

Immediately Gordon making a strong start with Ethan Garrett picking up one of the openers in the second over of the match with Glenn Winsor taking a good catch down at fine leg. The hosts lost regular wickets and struggled to a small and modest total of 125. 

Dan Williams had a solid day with the ball against the Bears 

The pick of the bowlers was Dan Williams with impressive figures of 3/20, Dan had good support from the other end from Ethan Garrett 2/24 and Jordan Hayes 2/14. 

After Gordon’s strong performance in the field the batters were very confident that they could track this runs down very easily. 

The innings started well with Michael Richardson and Rowan Love opening the batting. The Stags were cruising along until a brilliant catch at Mid-wicket removed Rowan (7). 

Nick and Jay take the attack up to the Bears

This then brought the inform captain to the middle who was coming off a brilliant 83* against Mosman on Tuesday. Nick didn’t waste any time in getting going and built a strong partnership with Michael. 

Michael Richardson will be looking to practice against the straight full toss before the finals 

Michael Richardson came unstuck on 26 in embarrassing fashion missing a gentle leg spinning full toss on leg stump. This then brought out the youngest member of the team in Jayllen Naganayagam who absolutely smoked them around the racing to 41. Jay and Nick combined to almost see out the match and win it for the Stags. 

But Jay fell with the score being 123 meaning there was only 2 runs to get. Nick Andreou hit the final runs to finish with 33 not out and win the game for the stags making it 4 from 4 for the Gordon boys.

Green Shield vs Mosman - Round 4 - 2016/17

On a somewhat overcast day the confident Stags headed to AB oval to take on the reigning premiers Mosman. Unfortunately, the Stags lost the toss (again) and were sent in to bowl on what looked a flat deck. 

A promising start from Gordon saw Glenn Winsor rattling the stumps inside the first over of play.

Mosman start to take control of their innings after this however were unable to apply too much pressure to the Gordon fielders as their scoring came at a fairly slow rate. 

Some quality bowling from Ethan Garret and Jordy Hayes kept the runs down before both of them broke through to put the stags in a good position leading into the last 20 overs with Mosman 3-97 after 30. 

Kyle Townsend gets into his delivery stride. We look forward to a grade debut! 

Some big hitting from the opposition enabled them to build some solid partnerships towards the end of their innings and post a formidable total. Mosman ended their innings at 4-222 which we believed to be below par. 

Glenn Winsor (10-4-1-25) and Jordy Hayes (10-1-1-16) were the pick of the bowlers. 

Gordon set out their innings with a slow start and the loss of an early wicket didn’t help. However, the positive and aggressive mindset from Rowan Love and Nick Andreou set up a good partnership for us to build on.

Gordon looked comfortable in their chase (aided by some extras from the opposition) until 2 quick wickets fell. The next man to the crease Glenn Winsor looked very comfortable facing the Mosman attack belting 66 off just 64 balls. 

Winsor performed strongly with both bat and ball against the Whales 

Along with Nick Andreou (83* off 120 balls) saw Gordon home with only 2 overs to spare. 

This game was a testament to the way we have been playing recently as knocking off last year’s champions was no small feat. 

A great effort from the boys and we look to continue the great start we’ve had in the 2016/17 season.

Green Shield vs St George - Round 3 - 2016/17

Green Shield vs St George - Round 3 - 2016/17

The Gordon Green Shield team had a convincing win against St. George at Killara today which will take us to 12 points after the first round wash out. The hero of the day was undoubtedly Glenn Winsor who took 3 wickets and scored 68 runs. Below is the report from Shivraj Rana.

Round 3 - Gordon vs St George

Strolling into Killara Oval on an overcast morning full of confidence after the first round win, the stags unfortunately loss the toss with St George electing to bat first on another flat wicket.

Our opening bowlers, Glenn Winsor and Kyle Townsend, got Gordon off to a good start with pressure built from both ends. This led the way for Jordan Hayes to come on and rip through the top order of St George having taken 3 wickets in his first 4 overs, leaving the opposition 3 for 41. Just as the game was slipping through Gordon’s grasp, Ethan Garrett and Glenn Winsor came on and took vital wickets to pull Gordon back in command.

 
What a day for Glenn Winsor, 3 wickets and 68 runs

Some tight and accurate bowling from Naba Haider and new spells from Glenn Winsor and Ethan Garrett lead to regular wickets being taken during the middle overs.

The Stags bowled the opposition out for 172, with Jordan Hayes and Glenn Winsor being the pick of the bowlers with 3 for 22 off 10 and 3 for 30 off 10, respectively. These bowlers were well backed up with Ethan Garrett taking 2 for 36 off 6.4 and Naba Haider taken 1 for 24 off 8. Some excellence in the field by Michael Richardson, Harry Vale and Jay Naganayagam as well as a smart stumping by skipper Nick Andreou topped off a solid first innings performance by the stags.

Gordon’s batting innings didn't start well losing 3 for 11 and then in strife at 4 for 48. Glenn Winsor then came in and stole the show with a blistering 68 including 5 fours and 5 sixes taking the game away from St George. Michael Richardson played a crucial innings acting as the anchor. In tale with Shivraj Rana, Gordon completed a successful run chase winning by 5 wickets and 11 overs remaining.

   
A stumping from Nick Andreou, Jordan Hayes and Shivraj Rana in action

Despite a rough start, Gordon showed character and fight through contributions from Glenn Winsor (68), Michael Richardson (30*), Shivraj Rana (39*) and Harry Vale (18). Making it two in a row for the Gordon Stags!

Scores

Gordon 5 for 176 (Glenn Winsor 68, Shivraj Rana 39 not out, Michael Richardson 30 not out defeated St. George 172 (Jordan Hayes 3 for 22, Glenn Winsor 3 for 30, Ethan Garrett 2 for 36, Naba Haider 1 for 24)

P.S. As Shivraj wrote the report he was typically modest with his contribution. 

Green Shield vs Randwick-Petersham - Round 2 - 2016/17

Green Shield vs Randwick-Petersham - Round 2 - 2016/17

Resplendent in our new Beastwear training gear, Gordon was full of confidence heading into the second round of the Green Shield competition after the 1st round against Manly was rained off.

Unfortunately, the Stags lost the toss, with the opposing skipper calling correctly and then electing to bat on a flat Killara wicket. Their decision back fired as they lost quick wickets to be 3 down for 14 after 6 overs.

Winners are grinners - and that certainly is a solid grin from Michael Richardson!

Glenn Winsor bowled fast and accurately with the new ball and was backed up well by Ethan Garrett.

A short partnership ensued, but some tight bowling from Jordan Hayes and Michael Richardson kept the runs down before the Randwick-Petersham captain chopped on with the score at 47.

Again another partnership set in during the middle overs. 

Jay Naganayagm & Tom Martyn contributed to the win 

Some extremely tight bowling meant that the batsman used up overs for little or no runs. The spinners bowled very a tight line and length and tied the batsman down. 

Dan Williams, Kyle Townsend and Harry Vale all took good catches with wickets falling regularly with Glenn Winsor (10-1-4-17) the pick of the bowlers, backed up well by some miserly bowling by Naba Haider (10-3-2-13) and Jordan Hayes (10-5-1-11).

Randwick were skittled for an under par 128.

The Stags set about the run chase in positive fashion with 9 coming off the first over. Thomas Martyn (replacing Riley Behlavanas, who was injured in the warmup) and Shivraj Rana put on a very tidy display before the latter was bowled with the score on 19. 

Nick Andreou leads the victorious team off the ground 

Nicholas Andreou carried on the positive momentum, before Thomas was unluckily given out LBW. However, by that stage, the game was well and truly Gordon’s to win, and the only job remaining was to finish it off. And that's exactly what Nick (38), Harry Vale (29*), Jay Naganayagam (4*) and Glen Winsor (27) did very effectively. 

The second innings lasted only 34 overs a testament to what the scoreboard will show was a one-sided affair. 

A great effort by all the boys and hopefully the good form can continue into Thursday and St George.
