Val­ley Rams skip­per is heart­ened by Wan­der­ers up­set

Geraldton Guardian - - SPORT - Vic­tor Tanti

With suc­ces­sive wins, Chap­man Val­ley-Northamp­ton would pre­fer to be play­ing this week­end, rather than hav­ing the bye in the Bendigo Bank Cricket League.

But cap­tain Hay­den Daw­son is happy enough. Af­ter big losses to Sports­mans and Towns, CVN de­feated Bluff Point fol­lowed by last week’s up­set over Wan­der­ers.

“The Wan­der­ers game was a great team win and awe­some to fi­nally beat them af­ter so long,” Daw­son said. “Was so pleased with how well Alan Dean bowled into the wind and he leaves the district (he is mov­ing to Al­bany) on a good note.”

An­other star with his wick­et­keep­ing and the bat was Axis Hutchin­son. Daw­son hinted he might re­tain the gloves.

“I think he’s the best man for the job (seven catches in two games), though he’s handy in the field with his ath­leti­cism,” Daw­son said.

“I wasn’t con­cerned in last week’s chase be­cause we made a fast start and af­ter we lost a few wick­ets, Axis and Crippsy (Andrew Cripps) set­tled and got us home.”

Cricket ac­tion starts tonight with Wan­der­ers against Towns in a Young Mo­tors T20 game from 6pm at Won­thella.

In to­mor­row’s 50-over games, it is again Wan­der­ers and Towns at GBSC Park while Sports­mans meet Bluff Point at Won­thella.
