Update on the PCC Great Lawn

As expected, the PCC Board apparently voted last evening to proceed with the addition to the squash building with construction to begin no later than March 1st. The building itself will impinge on our beloved Great Lawn and the larger construction site associated with it certainly will. This will have implications for our cricket playing. We'll see what that means as time goes on. This will not keep us from playing cricket.

PCC vs. Greenwich, Saturday, October 26

It was a dark and stormy night ... no, that's not right. It was just getting dark and cold and blowing like stink. Winter is coming - and this is the last cricket weekend until spring. On Saturday, despite Mark's 40 not out, Greenwich (augmented by Chip, Geo and Steve from PCC) put PCC away 224 - 161. Greenwich also did their best to assist with 34 extras.

Halifax Cup surrendered to Merion in a nail-biter (Merion 157, PCC 155)

On a gorgeous fall day, PCC fought right down to the end but came up just short in the battle for the Halifax Cup. Roger had a spectacular day with 4 wickets (3 catches and one stumped). Fred was our most economical bowler with 2.33 over 6 overs! High scorers: Riz (50, not out), George (29) and Mark (25).

PCC vs. NY Kookaburras - Oct. 6, 2013 - PCC wins on run rate

The day promised to be very much like yesterday - haze burning off to sun and heat. The Kookaburras arrived with only 7 players and were supplemented by PCC players. The Kookaburras started slowly, hampered by a batsman with an injured hip. Once he chose to have a runner, the run rate climbed, ending with 141 after either 29 or 30 overs (depending on who you ask).

The scorekeeper had a senior moment and combined two overs for the Kookaburras, thereby depriving Roger of a wicket on a magnificent one-handed catch by Fred [Sorry, Roger]. Riz had 3 great catches as well.

After a lovely tea, PCC stormed the field, off to a rousing start with Mark and Riz. But rain began to fall during the 13th over, and within minutes it turned into a deluge. At that point, everyone stormed back off the field to the keg, leaving Andy with yet another "not out."

That left the game to be decided on run rate - PCC with 7.0, and the Kookaburras with 4.7. [Incidentally, the Kookaburras' score at the end of 13 overs was 50 to PCC's 91.]
