Corn­wall on at­tack in Crowe Cup

Central Leader - - Classifieds -

Corn­wall con­tin­ued their march to­ward the Jeff Crowe Cup one-day fi­nal with a nar­row 21run win over Uni­ver­sity Eller­slie on Sun­day.

In a low-scor­ing match at Colin Maiden Park, the vis­i­tors could only man­age 152-9, with Dave Brown’s vi­tal knock of 61 giv­ing his bowlers some­thing to de­fend.

De­spite Corn­wall’s low score, the Uni­ver­sity Eller­slie bats­men found it just as hard at the crease with only James Boyle 40 get­ting go­ing.

Todd He­witt’s 3-10 led a Corn­wall at­tack that made short work of the home team, who made just 131 dur­ing their turn at bat.

Corn­wall now face Par­nell in the ma­jor semi­fi­nal on Sun­day.

Un­for­tu­nately for Corn­wall they couldn’t get a sneak peek at Par­nell’s form in the two­day Hed­ley Howarth Tro­phy, with the first day of their match at Shore Rd aban­doned on Satur­day.

Eden Roskill had a mixed day in their Blue Sec­tion top of the ta­ble clash with How­ick Paku­ranga at Keith Hay Park.

The home team strug­gled first up, post­ing just 150.

How­ever Tom Hen­der­son’s su­perb spell of 3-1 off five overs left How­ick reel­ing at 12-4 by stumps.

Mean­while, it was a case of hon­ours be­ing shared once play got un­der way be­tween Grafton United and Uni­ver­sity Eller­slie at Vic­to­ria Park.

Af­ter winning the toss Grafton put the vis­i­tors into bat first.

While the home side took wick­ets at reg­u­lar in­ter­vals, Uni­ver­sity’s com­pet­i­tive at­ti­tude saw them bat­tle through to 175-9 at stumps.

On Satur­day Corn­wall face Par­nell in their Jeff Crowe Cup ma­jor semi­fi­nal at Shore Rd, while all lo­cal sides con­tinue on day two of their re­spec­tive Hed­ley Howarth Tro­phy matches.
