Cricketers clips Surrey Stars

Chilliwack’s brand new men’s cricket team won their first match of the 2011 B.C. Cricket League season, downing the Surrey Stars on Saturday in a second division matchup.

Surrey batted first and were bowled out for 159 with Chilliwack’s Pinda Poonian taking five wickets.

Chilliwack scored 164 for six with captain Scott Anderson scoring 61 and Roger Pressly smashing 33 not out to see the Stags home safely.

The club hosts their women’s barbecue from 2-5 p.m. this Saturday at Meadowbrook Park. Burgers and hot dogs will be served as the club looks to establish the Fraser Valley’s only women’s team

Anyone who is interested can grab a bite to eat, watch a men’s game and start learning. Current women who have registered have never played, so everyone starts from scratch. Get more info by calling Jennifer at 604-491-4442, Scott at 778-988-3260 or emailing
