Round 3: TGS 10/62 defeated by TSS
2/66
Our first game of the GPS cricket season did not go according
to plan with a very disappointing and somewhat embarrassing
defeat to TSS. TGS won the toss and elected to bat on what
was a great batting wicket on Mills Oval. TSS opened the
bowling with an off spinner and our top order batsmen
showed little fight, crumbling to 9/38. The only resistance
was a 24 run last wicket stand between Seb Ingold and Harry
Weir which allowed the team to gain a modest 62. TSS chased
down the runs in the 17th over and only lost two wickets.
This was a very frustrating start to our GPS campaign for 2018,
