Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - REPORTER SPORT - Mitchell Wood­cock

A FIVE-wicket haul from Marist seamer Al­lan Ut­ter­son led the Blues to a four-wicket win over Leschenault at For­rest Park North on Satur­day.

Ut­ter­son ripped through Leschenault’s top or­der, tak­ing 5-20 off 10 overs to con­trib­ute in the Green Caps be­ing dis­missed for 110 in the 40th over.

Matt Buchanan was Ut­ter­son’s first vic­tim, fall­ing for just one run when he was caught by wick­et­keeper Adam Spinelli.

Four balls later Kurt D’Agostino (0) fell af­ter be­ing caught by Reece O’Con­nell, be­fore Ut­ter­son trapped Leschenault cap­tain Tom Buchanan lbw for just 17. Ben Ship­ley ran out Ben Roberts (0) be­fore Ut­ter­son took his fourth wicket, with Spinelli catch­ing Jar­rad Quinn (19) to leave Leschenault 5/48. Ut­ter­son fin­ished his spell by bowl­ing Ri­ley Ital­iano (11), be­fore O’Con­nell (1-17 off 10 overs) got his lone wicket for the day, trap­ping Brody D’Agostino for 14.

All-rounder Corey Fitt (3-8 off 3.4 overs) cleaned up the re­main­ing wick­ets, bowl­ing James Letch­ford (17 off 81 balls), be­fore trap­ping Nick Webb lbw for seven and catch­ing Michael New­man off his own bowl­ing for four runs.

Marist’s run chase started poorly when young bats­man Kade Wall­rodt was dis­missed for a duck off the bowl­ing of Letch­ford (4-35 off 10 overs).

The Blues were in trou­ble at 2-5 when Kyle Davis (2) was caught by wick­et­keeper Josh Grime off the bowl­ing of Brody D’Agostino (1-23 off five overs).

A 65-run part­ner­ship be­tween Fitt (34) and O’Con­nell (37) set­tled the in­nings, be­fore Letch­ford got the break­through by bowl­ing the lat­ter.

Letch­ford again changed the game, bowl­ing Fitt and hav­ing Strath Pa­pan­droulakis ( 3) caught by Grime to give his side a chance.

When Webb bowled Sam Roots (4) Marist were at 6/100, but Spinelli (25 not out) and Josh Vague (0 not out) saw their side home in 27 overs.
