Sav­ille the star again as Power sink Saints

Alpine Observer - - Sport - By JUSTIN JEN­VEY

MT BEAUTY has re­turned to the Cricket Al­bury Wodonga dis­trict win­ners list with victory over Bethanga.

Daniel Sav­ille did what most play­ers can only dream of, scor­ing a century and tak­ing five wick­ets in the same match.

The all­rounder fol­lowed up his day-one knock of 104 with bowl­ing fig­ures of 5/43 to help dis­miss Bethanga for 194 and lead the Power to a 49-run win.

Sav­ille bowled un­changed for 20 overs and took four wick­ets in the space of a few overs to have Mt Beauty on the brink of victory be­fore Greg Bo­hun teamed up with num­ber 10 and 11 bats­men Mitch Traf­ford and Kris­ten Jahne.

Ear­lier Chris Der­rick (3/42) bowled im­pres­sively, fol­low­ing up last week’s early strike with two more scalps in the first ses­sion on Satur­day to re­duce Bethanga to 4/65.

Sav­ille got his first wicket thanks to some good glove­work from wicket- keeper Damien Jen­vey who stumped Bradley Tay­lor for 15 after he and Bo­hun had stead­ied the hosts with a 34-run stand.

The pri­mary school teacher then dis­missed the next three bats­men for ducks to have the Saints in trou­ble at 8/107.

Bo­hun and Traf­ford added 54 runs to­gether be­fore Ben Slo­combe claimed the key wicket of the opener for 78.

Sav­ille sealed the win by snar­ing Jahne (12) after he and Traf­ford ( 48 not out) took the score to 194.

The Power fin­ished on 4/72 in their sec­ond in­nings with Tris­tan Hall ( 31) and Will Betheras (29) en­joy­ing a sec­ond op­por­tu­nity at the crease.
