Back-to-back wins

The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - SPORT -

SOME teams got their first win on the board while oth­ers made it back-to-back vic­to­ries in a great week­end of cricket for SCA round two.

New Nor­folk I made it two from two in First Grade with a good win over Der­went at North War­rane Oval on Satur­day.

Bat­ting first, the Red Caps made the de­fend­able score of 8-212 off their 50 overs.

At one stage they were 3-21, but then Nathan Eiszele got things mov­ing with 66 not out, hit­ting six fours and one six. Harry Booth chimed in with 49 (two fours, one six) while Ja­son Rigby made 34 with two fours. Booth and Rigby put on 69 in a very valu­able part­ner­ship.

In the run chase, Der­went were bowled out for 141 off 43 overs. Seb Wishart do­ing the dam­age tak­ing 4-23 (10), in­clud­ing three maid­ens. Ben Smith 3-20 (10) also bowled well, while Jor­dan BanksSmith took 1-15 (6) and Ja­son Rigby 1-36 (7). GRETNA I got its first win for the sea­son with a 62-run win over the Sorell Ea­gles at Sorell.

Bat­ting first, Gretna lost wick­ets reg­u­larly, but Aaron Mad­dox struck the ball well with a good 44, in­clud­ing eight fours.

But it was young Luke Cross­well down the or­der who came up with what was a match-sav­ing 48 not out. Cross­well stead­ied the ship well, hit­ting four fours and one six. Ben Rain­bird made 20 and Jack­son Ack­erly 18

Gretna fin­ished all out with the de­fend­able to­tal of 168 from 43.5 overs.

In re­ply Gretna was just as good, with its bowlers putting in a great per­for­mance.

Peter Jel­kic could do no wrong, fin­ish­ing with fine fig­ures of 4-9 off seven overs which in­cluded a blinder of a one-hand caught and bowled.

Spin­ner Ben Rain­bird did ev­ery­thing right, tak­ing 1-13 (10). Opener Aaron Mad­dox did his bit, tak­ing two toporder bats­men with 2-23 (6), while Jack­son Ack­erly chimed in at the end with 2-3 off just 1.4 overs. Corey Rans­ley 1-26 (8) was also good early.

Con­grat­u­la­tion to Todd Jarvis, who played his 200th club game for Gretna on Satur­day. Todd has now played 115 games for Gretna I and 85 for Gretna II.

In the other Sec­ond Grade match, Molesworth I went down to St Annes at Boyer Oval by 106 runs.

Bat­ting first, the vis­i­tors posted the good score of 4-254 from their 50 overs. In re­ply, Molesworth were bowled out for 148 off 35.1 overs. Nick Piuselli made a very good 43, hit­ting five fours and a six. Brad Cop­ple­man made 23 (one four, one six) and opener Daniel Adams made 17 (one four) while down at No. 10, Jeremy Ni­chols re­mained 16 not out.

With the ball for the home team, it was also Ni­chols with the best fig­ures of 2-28 (9). STE­WART Rice scored an ex­cel­lent cen­tury to helped New Nor­folk II to a very big 154-run win over Cam­pa­nia at Tyn­wald Park on Satur­day.

Rice clubbed 11 fours and 10 sixes on his way to a splen­did 128. I hear one six nearly cleared a tree — and an­other went over the creek!

Cam­pa­nia must have been fum­ing at the end as Rice was dropped on naught in the sec­ond over of the match.

Bat­ting with the cen­tury maker, Leigh Berry gave great sup­port with a well-made 41. The pair put on an ex­cel­lent 173-run stand.

The Red Caps were 5-256 at the end of their 50 overs Oth­ers to make runs were Nathan Rice with 29 (three fours, one six), Steven Sil­li­fi­ant with 17, and Jye Bear­man 14 not out (one four).

In re­ply, the vis­i­tors were skit­tled for just 102 off 31.1 overs.

Young Nathan Rice was the main de­stroyer with great fig­ures of 4-19 (6). Veteran Graeme Row­lands also did well with 2-18 (7.1) while Jamie Hill bowled just the one over tak­ing 2-2, and Josh Walsh got 1-18 (3). BOTH­WELL I made it backto-back wins with a con­vinc­ing 155-run vic­tory over Gretna II at Gretna.

Bat­ting first, Both­well got off to a very good start with open­ers Cody Eyles and Adam Clark putting on a 134-run part­ner­ship.

Eyles bat­ted ex­tremely well, hit­ting seven fours and one six on his way to 81. Clark was very solid mak­ing 42.

Brock Ni­chols made 26 not out, Nathan Eyles 18, Trent Rogers 12 and cap­tain Joey Eyles fin­ished not out on 10. The Bucks ended up with 7-228 off their 50 overs.

With ball for the home team, spin­ner Aaron Brown­ing worked hard tak­ing 4-51 from his 10 overs. Brown­ing teamed up well with keeper Brian Smith, who snared two stump­ings and a catch.

Tom All­cock with 1-36 (9) and Adam Brown­ing on 1-37 (9) were the other wicket tak­ers.

In re­ply, Gretna didn’t get go­ing and was dis­missed for just 73 off 27.4 overs.

Only two play­ers made dou­ble fig­ures with Brian Smith 20 (one four) and young An­drew “Macca” McKen­zie, who gives his all every week, also scor­ing 20 with one four.

For the Bucks’ bowlers, Josh Eyles with fig­ures of 3-5 from 4.4 and Cody Eyles capped a great day tak­ing 3-13 (7).

Nathan White did very well also with 2-9 (5) and Trent Rogers 1-25 (4) was the other wicket taker.

In the other Fourth Grade match, Bushy Park recorded their first win, when they de­feated Ho­bart by 38 runs at the Bushy Park Show Grounds. The vis­i­tors won the toss and sent Bushy into bat who made the good score of 9/230 off its 50 overs. Keep/bats­man Shaun Fen­ton lead from the front, top scor­ing with a well made 86. Ge­off Cross­well wasn’t far be­hind with a fine 64. The pair came to­gether with the score on 4/43 and went in to put to­gether a part­ner­ship of 143, get­ting the team to 186. Ben Trif­fett’s cameo of 19 was handy at the end set­ting up the very de­fend­able to­tal. In re­ply, Ho­bart we’re go­ing well at 3/111, but then lost reg­u­lar wick­ets fin­ish­ing 9/192 off its 50 overs. Af­ter do­ing well with the bat, Ge­off Cross­well cleaned up the Ho­bart bats­man, tak­ing 5-36 off his 10 overs in a great dis­play of bowl­ing. Cap­tain Troy Smith took 1-33 (10), Trent Grant 1-29 (7) and Ni­cholas Fen­ton bowled 10 overs for 1-36. Their was one run out. In all, a good team ef­fort from Bushy Park. NEW Nor­folk III de­feated Ho­bart by 117 runs at Tyn­wald Park on Sun­day.

Af­ter be­ing sent into bat, the Red Caps were all out for 193 off their 50 overs.

In re­ply, the vis­i­tors were bowled out for 76 off 29.3 overs.

With the bat for New Nor­folk, Brad Kemm­ler top scored with 32 (three fours, one six), Aaron Trif­fitt got 29 (one four), and Scott Hutchin­son also got 29 (two fours, one six). Liam Kalbfell’s 25 in­cluded two fours and one six.

Cody Neads did lit­tle run­ning in his 24, hit­ting five fours
