That was the reaction after this weeks round 4 game against Wakatipu. After winning the toss and sending Wakatipu in a series of dropped catches and a missed stumping cost us dearly as Wakatipu’s top order batted well and saw them through to a total of 115.
In reply we were all out in the 19th over for 113,- so close but a lack of discipline in the batting saw regular wickets fall. Si Hawken with 21 and Fraser Hill 20 were the top scorers.
As a result the Ian Paterson Challenge Trophy was handed over to Wakatipu – the cup is certainly doing the rounds with 4 of the teams now having held it. Of course only 3 have won it since the Pelicans awarded it to themselves !
We did manage a team photo with the trophy though as well as one with our mascots Nick and Cam Jackson.
