ISIS Green hold brag­ging rights over their White stable­mates after a 51-run win on Satur­day.

The first Isis Cricket Club derby of the Bund­aberg Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion Di­vi­sion 3 Premier­ship saw sparks fly from the bat and sledges fly fur­ther from the tongue as our lo­cal sides faced off.

Isis Green bat­ted first on the Sal­ter Oval 4 pitch, and while no­body cracked the 50 mark, there were still healthy con­tri­bu­tions from Zac Dunn (37), Chris Fisher (27) and Scott Re­hbein (26) as they reached 169.

Cap­tain Wayne Dowling said it took a good team per­for­mance to lift the side to vic­tory.

“Charlie Thomp­son picked up four wick­ets with the ball and all bowlers were mostly backed up by the field­ers,” Dowling said.

“A spe­cial men­tion has to go to the two un­der-16s that filled in – Lley­ton Ritchie, who took two wick­ets, and Billy Free­man, who faced 25 balls. The ju­niors also tried hard in the field.”

Isis White were strongly boosted by opener Norm Sch­leusener’s 48-run knock but the mid­dle or­der col­lapsed around him.

White’s Marty Ryan, who took 1-9 from his six overs, said his side showed “mas­sive im­prove­ment in the field”.

“Stand­out bowlers were Ge­off My­att and cap­tain Roderick Jensen, each tak­ing two wick­ets, and Ge­off was the only other bats­man to post dou­ble fig­ures,” Ryan said.

“A men­tion must be made about the two un­der-16s that filled in for us this week. Hay­den Pope and Matthew Small each took a wicket with the ball and fielded bril­liantly.”

De­spite earn­ing the win, Dowling ad­mit­ted some­thing was miss­ing.

“A win is a win but the feel­ing was not as good beat­ing team­mates as it nor­mally is,” he said.
