Au­gusta win in last over

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Sport -

Ben Kennedy achieved a mile­stone last week­end in Au­gusta’s home game against YOBS when he played his 200th game for the club.

He played his first game for the club in the 2003-04 sea­son, and has been a club stal­wart ever since.

Fit­tingly, his team­mates helped him cel­e­brate the mile­stone when they achieved vic­tory over YOBS in the last over of the game.

Bat­ting first, Au­gusta again strug­gled as the top or­der failed to show pa­tience and tech­nique against a strong YOBS at­tack.

At 7-76 in the 32nd over, it looked like Au­gusta would be rolled for less than 100 for the fourth time this sea­son. David Beilken top­scored with 39.

In re­ply, YOBS lost opener Tom Payne, bowled by Nisham Ban­dera for a duck on the sixth ball of the in­nings.

Tyson Warnke con­tin­ued his great form with the ball, claim­ing 5-15 off nine overs. The game came down to the last over, with YOBS need­ing 13 to win. O’Mal­ley hit the ball to long on but a fine throw by Kennedy re­sulted in a Trewen run out to end the match.
