Com­bined team win

Southern Riverina news - - LOCALCLASSIES -

Fin­ley, Jer­ilderie and Tocumwal’s Com­bined Un­der 16s recorded an open­ing round vic­tory last Fri­day night.

The Cats were far too good for the Border Colts squad win­ning by 63 runs.

The 20/20 con­test saw the Cats bat first and were well led by Clay Webb (35 re­tired not out) and Will Sex­ton (25) with the blade.

Ben Neessen (16) also made runs as the Cats posted a chal­leng­ing 8/109 from their 20 overs.

An ef­fec­tive bowl­ing per­for­mance fol­lowed, with the Colts un­able to get close to the tar­get.

Six wick­ets fell to six bowlers with Shadeau Brain the only slinger to snare a brace tak­ing 2/6.

The Com­bine Cats travel to Katunga on Fri­day night for the first day of a two day fix­ture.

The Fin­ley Un­der 14s fell short of vic­tory against Jer­ilderie last week­end go­ing down by just 13 runs.

The Demons set Fin­ley 157 to win the con­test and the Kit­tens got off to a great start through Ed Haynes (12) and Shadeau Brain (15).

The open­ing part­ner­ship of 28 set a good plat­form for the young side.

When both open­ers were dis­missed, Archie Ma­son (41 re­tired not out) took up the chal­lenge to the Demons with a su­perb mid­dle or­der knock.

The young bat hit six fours on his way to re­tir­ing un­beaten and gave the Kit­tens a grand chance of vic­tory.

The lower or­der bat­tled away gamely to keep the con­test in­ter­est­ing but some good clos­ing bowl­ing from the Demons en­sured wick­ets con­tin­ued to fall.

With two overs to bowl the Kit­tens were all out for 143.

The Kit­tens travel to Katunga on Satur­day morn­ing to start an­other two day fix­ture.
