Green Caps take win over Col­lie

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - RE­PORTER SPORT - Mitchell Wood­cock

LESCHENAULT grabbed its first Bun­bury and Dis­tricts Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion win of the year, de­feat­ing Col­lie by 85 runs at Roche Park on Satur­day.

Leschenault cap­tain Tom Buchanan elected to bat and his play­ers re­warded his de­ci­sion, post­ing 9/205 from their 50 overs.

Buchanan (28 runs) and fel­low opener Jar­rad Quinn (12) got the Green Caps off to a strong start with a 46-run open­ing part­ner­ship, be­fore Ja­son Bor­rett re­moved Buchanan.

Bor­rett struck just five runs later, re­mov­ing Quinn to bring the home side back into the game.

But a 53-run part­ner­ship be­tween Kurt D’Agostino (29) and James Letch­ford (20) helped be­fore both were re­moved in quick suc­ces­sion. The bat­tle be­tween the ball and bat in­ten­si­fied as Leschenault bats­men got starts, but were sent back to the pav­il­ion with­out mak­ing a big score.

Wick­et­keeper Josh Grime hit a nice 32 in the mid­dle or­der, while Nick Webb smashed 28 runs off 29 balls to fin­ish the in­nings.

Mark Wil­liams was the best of the bowlers for Col­lie, fin­ish­ing with 3-43 from 10 overs, while Bor­rett, Matt Tan­ner and Bray­den Kent each took two wick­ets.

Col­lie’s run chase got off to a poor start when Kent was re­moved for a six-ball duck by Letch­ford, be­fore he then re­moved Tom Plum­mer for just 28 off 25 balls.

Mark Wil­liams tried to get the Coalmin­ers back in the game, but he was re­moved by Brody D’Agostino, be­fore Matt Dodds (1-18 off 10 overs) bowled Austin Kent for 24.

Col­lie cap­tain Greg To­masini scored a bril­liant 34 , but when he was bowled by coun­ter­part Buchanan, Col­lie was in trouble at 6/118.

From here the last four wick­ets came for just two runs, as Leschenault stormed to a big vic­tory.

The best of the bowlers was Letch­ford who pikced up four wick­ets, while Nick Webb took 3-12 from five overs.
