Canberra Grammar student Blake Faunce thought he was having a pretty average pre-season heading into this year's DCA Under 14 Harold Moore Shield competition.
After a couple of ducks in practice matches, Blake wasn't sure what his form would be like heading in to Round 1 against Camden on the 21st October.
"I was feeling pretty nervous going into the game cause I had a pretty shaky off-season with a few ducks so I was just trying to do as well as I could," said Blake
With Camden batting first, Blake took a couple of wickets to ease into the match before coming out to open the batting for ACT.
He batted the entire innings, chasing down Camden's total of 159 in just 36.1 overs and making a stunning 104 not-out.
Coming out the next week to play Canterbury and Western Suburbs, he did it again. Opening the batting, Blake hit 114 from just 119 balls for his second century in as many weeks.
"I was expecting it at all," said Blake
"I just tried to play the way I did the week before because it worked."
After a quieter weekend with back-to-back matches against South Eastern and Manly Warringah, Blake was back to his old-tricks against Penrith on the weekend.
Picking up three wickets to start the game, Blake whacked 115 from 118 balls to secure his third century in four weekends - an absolutely incredible feat.
We can't wait to see what the rest of his season has in store. Watch this space.
