A determined Northern Suburbs batting effort has given their bowlers a reasonable total of 158 to defend against City United on day-one of their under-16 clash at Robins Oval.
Jock Vivers took 5-14 from 7.4 overs to end Norths innings which had been anchored by a fine half century by Jackson Spohr.
Restricting City’s batsmen will be difficult and they finished day one on 0/28 with Ewan Mowbray on 13 and Theo Atkins on 10.
Eastern Suburbs are in command of their under-16 clash against Raymond Terrace declaring on 6/165 and then grabbing four quick wickets to leave Terrace at 4/29 at stumps on day one.
The Griffins’ top five all got starts, but young gun Matthew Lynch took advantage to make 57 and then backed it up taking 3-7. Lachlan Towns made 25, Jesse Budden 24 and Will Stoneman was 19 not out.
Ryan Jonovski took 2-33 off eight overs and Kaiden Aroney grabbed 2-5 off three for Terrace.
