This weekend saw Premier and Premier Reserve take on the Karori unicorns. Unfortunately the weather and underwhelming venues with poor drainage played a major factor, delaying the start to Premier and washing out Premier Reserve.
Premier Reserves morning consisted of:
- Moaning about down-spots;
- Moaning about Karori being too keen to play cricket on a Saturday;
- Walking to the Churton Park village to enjoy the ambiance of a local guitarist and get some lunch. Pat Smith commenting that the guitarist was "his new jam"; and
- Driving home at midday.
At Ben Burn Park the premier game was reduced to a 32 over hit-out. Taita and K-town batsman were salivating at the sight of laughably small boundaries, K-town winning the toss and sensibly electing to bat, reaching a grand total of 182.
Unfortunately on this occasion the Unicorn gods were looking out for the men from the cloudy suburb and guided them to a 133 run win and the mana.
Well done to the boys, always some positives to be taken from the game.
