Isis strug­gle against heavy­weights

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

BUND­ABERG Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion is back in the swing of things after the Christ­mas-New Year break.

Since the last Town & Coun­try on De­cem­ber 18, Isis Cricket Club’s Green and White out­fits have played two games each.

Suc­cess has been hard to come by for the Childers-based teams how­ever, with the good guys win­ning only one of the four over­all games.

That came last week­end when Isis White kicked off the year in style with vic­tory over Norths.

All other games have ended in heartache for lo­cal teams with com­pre­hen­sive losses.

In the last games of 2014 both Isis team bat­ted first.

Isis White took on the ta­ble-top­ping CCWS and set a mod­est, but de­fend­able to­tal of 135.

Jack Rowan (31) and Roderick Jensen (23) were the top scor­ers.

Any hope of vic­tory was de­stroyed by CCWS opener Michael Hurst, who blasted his way to 70.

He was even­tu­ally dis­missed by Hay­den Pope to make it 2–125 but by then the dam­age was done.

Isis Green were off to a poor start to be 3–19 but a strong 51 from Dar­ren Green and Scott Re­hbein’s 46 helped them post 161.

This time it would be Bur­nett Heads’ opener Sean Suokallio do­ing the dam­age, as he cracked 75 be­fore he was dis­missed by Charlie Thomp­son.

Last week saw Isis Green bowl­ing first but ATW proved too strong with the bat. Jake Klei­don cruised to 48 be­fore he was dis­missed. Eric Peter­son (52) Noel Stitt (32) fin­ished the job he started by help­ing ATW to 200 as Rowan took 4–39.

Chris Fisher top-scored with 33 in Isis Green’s re­ply, in which they were all out for 149.
