Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Sport - Tari Jef­fers

BOYUP Brook Cricket Club had a stel­lar start to its 2017/18 War­ren Black­wood Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion sea­son with a home win over Northcliffe in a high-scor­ing game at the week­end.

The home side put on 20 runs be­fore Jakob Marsh was run out by the quick think­ing and team work of Peter Beale and Ma­son Ab­bott.

First class crick­eter Tris­tan Mead then took to the crease and was im­mov­able for 111 runs, in­clud­ing 10 fours, be­fore he was caught by Stephen Luff.

Ja­cob Maw and Ty Ban­croft fol­lowed and also put in strong per­for­mances.

Once Ban­croft was out with the score at 222, Boyup Brook lost the next bats­man on the same score, with the last to go only six runs later for a fi­nal score of 228 from 42.4 overs.

Northcliffe bowler Luff put in the strong­est per­for­mance with 3-24 in­clud­ing two maidens from 6.4 overs.

The vis­i­tors’ run chase went along slow and steadily, with im­pres­sive per­for­mances through­out the bat­ting or­der.

John Spils­bury was the top scorer with 76 runs, in­clud­ing six fours and four sixes.

Peter Beale (20), Brian McGre­gor (26), Ma­son Ab­bott (24) and David Cronin (23) also put in im­pres­sive per­for­mances to help get their to­tal close to the tar­get.

De­spite the vis­i­tors’ ef­forts, they fell short by 16 runs with 212 from 44.1 overs.

Marsh was the top bowler for his side with 3-47 from eight overs, Maw and Mead also took two wick­ets a-piece.

This week Bridgetown will host Boyup Brook, Man­jimup and Forestry will face off at Collier Street and Pem­ber­ton will host Northcliffe, all on Satur­day.
