McMil­lan’s bag halts Wan­der­ing chase

Narrogin Observer - - Sport - Michael Traill

Four wick­ets to Ben McMil­lan, in his first match of the sea­son, halted Wan­der­ing’s chase of 203, hand­ing Towns the win in Nar­ro­gin on Satur­day.

Wan­der­ing re­stricted Towns to 8-202 af­ter a cou­ple of early vic­to­ries with the ball.

Lewis Par­sons dis­missed Ben Woodruff (0) early in the sec­ond over while Bai­ley Par­son col­lect- ed the prized wicket of Per­rin Quar­ter­maine, knock­ing over his stumps for 29 runs in the 11th over.

First drop Nick Cor­ner (64) and Liam Sweeney (59) com­ing in at No.4 stead­ied the in­nings for Towns, help­ing the home side find the to­tal of 202.

Lin­coln Joy was Wan­der­ing’s most dam­ag­ing with the ball tak­ing three wick­ets, in­clud­ing Sweeney’s, for 45 runs off eight overs.

Joy’s 24 runs, Bryan Hardie’s 37 and Blake War­bur­ton’s 28 weren’t enough against Towns’ at­tack.

McMil­lan’s 4-35 off 10 overs was as­sisted by Cor­ner’s 2-35, also off 10 overs.

Daniel Rod­er­ick was also handy from his six overs, tak­ing 2-24, mak­ing him the high­est wicket taker in the com­pe­ti­tion af­ter three rounds.

Wan­der­ing fin­ished on 9-176 af­ter their full 45 overs.
