BHRDCA U/12 Girls are first team into a 2015 VMCU carnival Grand Final.
Having won all three of their round robin matches, our U12 girls team, was to play a semi final on 9/01/15. It was washed out, and while the other semi final was still in progress, across the other side of Melbourne, our team progressed to the final, as the higher finishing team.
Therefore we I think we can (cheekily) claim we had the first team into a grand final for the 2015 carnival.
While our inaugural girls representative team has had un-defeated progress to the grand final, our other seven teams have had mixed results.
The U/18 team has won 2, lost 1 and are 2nd on ladder with today’s match v ECA probably deciding who will progress to the grand final (no semi final in this grade).
The U/16 Beitzel turf team, has dropped its last two matches after starting with a win in a run fest (400 runs in the day off 90 overs), and are needing to win today and tomorrow to make the semi finals.
The U/16 Mackay team has struggled early and lost first three matches, but won a thriller by one run on Friday, to not only get off the bottom of the ladder, but give themselves a shot at a quarter final place.
The U/14 Allen team started with a narrow loss to arch rival ECA, but have turned it around with two wins, and a good chance of a home quarter final.
The U/14 Nolan team started in a blaze, winning the first two matches, but have come back to earth with a loss, but still in the top four, and a good chance of a home quarter final.
The U/12 Mitchell team has yet to register a win, but has been competitive in every match. A win today will see them back in the hunt.
The U/12 Browne team has won 2 , drawn 1, and lost 1, to be top 4. A win today should confirm a home quarter final on Tuesday.
This time last year we were trying to keep cool in the middle of days after days of 40 degrees plus weather, and no play. This week much cooler conditions and some rain about to annoy us all.
Today should be fine and warm as all the boys teams are in action. Get along to a match today if you can, and fly the BHRDCA flag!
U/18’s away v ECA at Donvale Reserve #1 turf wicket (Donvale cricket Club)

U/14 Nolan, home v WRJCA at East Burwood #2
U/12 Mitchell, home v NWMCA at Heatherdale #1
U/12 Browne, home v ECA at Heatherdale #2
We also had many of our U/15 boys are playing in the Craig Shield completion for a variety of Sub district clubs, which started last Tuesday.
Of those, several are at Kew CC, who has had a slow start; and a strong representation at Box Hill CC, who are so far un-defeated, including a great win against Oakleigh, yesterday at Springfield park.
Many players are involved in Emus, Eagles and Scorpions U/14 to U/18 regional teams.
Yesterday the u18 Emus and U18 Scorpions both lost, but the u18 eagles had a great win, with Lincoln Wong of Heathmont CC getting amongst the runs.
Good Luck to all teams!
