The highly anticipated Hurricanes Junior League Grand Final between North Hobart and New Town was played at Cadbury No.2 this afternoon.
Having won the toss and electing to bat, the New Town opening batsmen got their innings off to a strong start, however, tight bowling from Otto Schwarz 3/10 (6.3) and Max Marsh 1/21 (6) restricted the Bucks. Despite some lower order runs from the Bucks’ tail, the Demons took ten wickets for 147 (38.3) with one and a half overs remaining in the innings.
Otto Schwarz and Simon Stankovich saw the Demons off to a conservative start. Following Schwarz falling for 46, Stankobich (44*) and Max Marsh (23*) guided the Demons home, loosing only one wicket, finishing 1/151.
Around the grounds in todays action saw the North Hobart U15 Premier League side loose their Semi Final to New Town. Despite a fighting 64 (84) from Skipper Joe Kelly, the 4/286 that New Town posted proved too difficult for the Demons to chase.
