CRICKET

Matamata Chronicle - - Sport -

Af­ter three away games to start the sea­son and only hav­ing one win un­der the belt the boys needed a good win to keep the sea­sons hopes alive. Waikere trav­elled down to Pohlen park on a beau­ti­ful day and won the toss and elected to bat. The Hin­uera bowlers kept it nice and tight but couldn’t find a break through early. Af­ter ten overs A Tap­pin (4-22-10) en­tered the at­tack and took two wick­ets in two balls to start the rot. Wick­ets then fell at reg­u­lar in­ter­vals and runs were hard to come by. T Green ( 2- 40- 10) and I Mar­shall (2-30-10) also claimed a cou­ple of wick­ets each.

Waikere all out for 167. In re­ply Hin­uera had a great start from M Oshaugh­nessy
