Isis Town and Country - - Front Page - By MATTHEW MCIN­ER­NEY

HAD you checked the Isis Cricket Club record books two weeks ago, the page with play­ers reach­ing triple fig­ures would have been blank.

Norm Sch­leusener smashed their first cen­tury last week; the 56-year-old show­ing play­ers half his age how it’s done with an un­beaten 148.

Now a sec­ond name can be added, with Greg Re­hbein scor­ing 102 for Isis White in their big win over a seven-man Bur­nett Heads side on Satur­day.

Re­hbein was un­sure how to de­scribe his knock, say­ing it “just came to­gether on the day”.

“It didn’t go too bad for a change. I’m not sure how it hap­pened – it just came to­gether,” Re­hbein said.

The 34-year-old shared in a 160-run fifth-wicket part­ner­ship with friend and team­mate Roderick Jensen, who fin­ished on 76.

The pair, along with a handy 45 from Mark Fel­gate and Ken Barker’s 39, pro­pelled Isis White to 6-344 from their 40 overs, a run rate of 8.6.

Isis needed only two bowlers to rout Bur­nett Heads for 47, with Marty Ryan and Jensen tak­ing three wick­ets each.

Ryan (3-25 from six) ad­mit­ted that while it was good to get one back on their “bo­gey side”, the game would have been much closer had Bur­nett Heads been at full strength.

“They gave us a touch up in the early rounds and we have got­ten one back on them,” Ryan said.

“After two very good bat­ting per­for­mances the com­ing rounds will give us a bet­ter idea of how we are ac­tu­ally play­ing as we play all four sides ahead of us on the ta­ble.”

Isis Green made it yet another good week­end for the club as they com­fort­ably beat an un­der-strength Norths.

Chris Fisher led Isis Green with the bat scor­ing 50, while Scott Re­hbein’s 34 and Nic Lind­say’s 31 helped the side to what cap­tain Wayne Dowling de­scribed as a “com­pet­i­tive” 8-171.

“Once both open­ers were gone, Norths were never in the hunt to chase down the runs,” Dowling said.

“All bowlers bowled well and the field­ing over­all was quite good as well.”

Daniel Dowling and Jack Rowan took two wick­ets each in the 84-run win.
