Grocott's Mail - - SPORT - By CH­ES­LEY DANIELS

Makana Sona sur­prised Wil­lows with a 67-run win in their lo­cal cricket derby at Man­leys Flats on Sun­day. What made the vic­tory (Makana Sona's league fix­ture) more spe­cial was the fact that they last man­aged to beat Wil­lows in 2012. Wil­lows won the toss and sent Makana Sona in to bat on a flat wicket.

Makana open­ers bat­ted well un­der dif­fi­cult con­di­tions and man­aged to make 215/3 in their al­lot­ted 50 overs. Wil­lows' bowlers strug­gled to get their rhythm and were put un­der pres­sure from the Makana open­ers. Aviwe Sentwa. a new­comer for Makana bat­ted well for a fine 97 and was well sup­ported by veteran Lunga Stam­per's ag­gres­sive 67 not out.

Mo­hammed Son­day took one wicket for 37, Melville Daniels 1/48 and Ab­ner Ac­com 1/42. Wil­lows bats­men failed to get go­ing in the run chase and most of them got them­selves out with bad shot selections. They lost wick­ets at reg­u­lar in­ter­vals, due to Makana's dis­ci­plined bowl­ing. Son­day (26), Melville Daniels (22), Se­viano Jas­son (18), Duane Brown (15) and Lu­vane Daniels (13), all tried by could not bat to the end. Singqibo Bongo 5/42 and Lu­sanda Qinela 3/25, were the de­stroy­ers-in­chief for their side and bowled really well, leav­ing Wil­lows with 148 all out in 41.2 overs.

MAN­LEYS VS SOUTH­WELL

For­mer SA Ru­ral bats­man, Kevin Ben­net was the day's hero South­well in their mas­sive 218-run vic­tory over Man­leys. Ben­net smashed a mag­nif­i­cent 178 not out, while Chris Fred­er­icks con­trib­uted 79. South­well scored a mas­sive 319/5 (50). Man­leys were bowled out for a mere 101 runs with Fran­cois Van Rooyen top scor­ing on just 23. Jeff Rodger­son 3/36 (10) and Adrian Reed 3/24 (10), were the stand-out bowlers for South­well. 6/13 in four-in­clud­ing a hat trick - and Alvin Mar­ney 3/22 in seven). Sta­tion Hill won by 121 runs and re­ceived a bonus point.
