Under 17’s Crowned Oxfordshire Champions in Explosive Finish to Honey Bee Trophy Final
Aston Rowant U17’s progressed to Finals Day of the Honey Bee Trophy, held at Horspath CC, having won all the pool matches they played.
First up was a semi-final against Banbury U17’s, Aston Rowant winning the toss and deciding to bat. Both openers were dismissed in the third over, Eliot Hyman then scored a steady 23 before he was unlucky to be stumped off a wide. With runs still required, Rafe Mason gave the middle order stability with an undefeated 29, Aston Rowant finishing with 141 for 7 in their 20 overs.
In reply, Banbury were up with the required run rate by the 8th over, aided by a few dropped catches. Aston Rowant’s total now looked reachable, but with the fall of Banbury’s third wicket, the runs began to dry up, although Josh Taylor was always a threat until he was dismissed for 34.
Economic bowling from James Coles (4 overs, 1 for 13) and wickets for Carrick Dunbar (4 overs, 3 for 19) restricted Banbury to 100 for 7. Although Aston Rowant won by a good margin, at times the match looked in the balance.
Having easily won their semi-final against Hook Norton, last year’s winners Challow & Childrey were Aston Rowant’s opponents in the Final.
Winning the toss for a second time, Aston Rowant put Challow into bat. Helped by a second wicket partnership of 113 and 28 extras, Challow posted 147 for 6 off 20 overs. Despite what was a defendable total, only Robson, 40 and Dunn, 55 managed to get into double figures.
After the early loss of opener Will Hammersley, James Coles and Eliot Hyman scored quickly to keep Aston Rowant up with the run rate before Eliot was dismissed on 31, a partnership of 53. New batsman Oli Shaw together with James put on an explosive batting display to take firm control of the game. Balls started to go missing, two of them in the gardens of the houses on the other side of the road, having cleared not only the boundary for 6, but the car park as well!
Aston Rowant reached the target of 148 with 4 overs to spare, Oli finishing on 31 not out and James on 75 not out. Congratulations to James for his innings which earned him the player of the match award from the umpires.
Thanks must go to all the players who have appeared for the U17’s this season. The team have proved themselves to be a highly talented and powerful side. Once they get going, they are unstoppable.
Well done to all those who came to support the team at Horspath, especially to Ben Shaw for scoring.
