Gatton Star - - SPORT -

CRICKET: Rope­hill won their third ti­tle in a row af­ter com­ing out on top against the Coun­cil side in Satur­day’s R&F Steel Build­ings Twenty20 com­pe­ti­tion grand fi­nal.

Af­ter win­ning the toss, Rope­hill elected to bat first and posted an im­pres­sive score of 210 for a loss of five wick­ets.

Chris Natal­ier and Josh Reisen­leiter, fol­low­ing up on his in­cred­i­ble dou­ble hat-trick from the week­end prior, both scored half cen­turies to put their side in a com­mand­ing po­si­tion.

Un­for­tu­nately for the Coun­cil side, the run chase never re­ally got go­ing.

They were only able to reach a to­tal of 129 to hand their op­po­nents the win.

The vic­tory for Rope­hill marks a hat-trick of wins for the side, with three con­sec­u­tive grand fi­nal wins in the pre-sea­son com­pe­ti­tion.

THREE-PEAT: Rope­hill won the pre-sea­son Twenty20 com­pe­ti­tion for the third year in a row.
