Dees claim huge scalp

Southern Riverina news - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

Jer­ilderie has main­tained their spot in the Mur­ray Val­ley Cricket Di­vi­sion Two top four, claim­ing a cru­cial eight wicket win over sec­ond placed Nathalia in Jer­ilderie on Satur­day.

The Dees lost the toss and were sent out to bowl.

Frazer Pin­nuck struck early, send­ing Nathalia opener Jamie Hardy back to the pavil­ion for a duck.

The Pur­ples set­tled how­ever, with the next wicket fall­ing when they reached 65 in the 16th over.

The Jer­ilderie bowlers kept toil­ing away and at the close of Nathalia’s in­nings, the Dees had kept them to a get­table score of 7/155.

Main run get­ters for Nathalia were Lloyd Buch­man (39 not out), Brian Boyd (36), Sa­muel Boyd (25) and Matthew Lum­berg (23).

Luke Keat­ing (2/21 off seven) was the only mul­ti­ple wicket taker for the home side, while a wicket each was taken by Frazer Pin­nuck (1/27 off three), Mitch A’Vard (1/23 off four) and in a great bowl­ing spell from young Shir­sho Roy, tak­ing 1/28 from six overs.

Jer­ilderie’s open­ing bats­men got off to a good start with A’Vard play­ing an in­tel­li­gent knock, farm­ing the run chase to Dave Pasin.

Pasin even­tu­ally ran him­self out af­ter mak­ing 46 runs, with the score at 68.

A’vard also fell to a run out shortly af­ter, but from there Blair Hen­ery and Jordy An­thony dug in to take Jer­ilderie’s score past the re­quired to­tal runs needed, with two overs to spare.

Hen­ery car­ried his bat with a well com­piled 63, with An­thony on 17 when the game was won.

Next week Jer­ilderie have an­other home match when they take on Kata­matite, in an­other must win game.

Sa­cred Heart swim­mers Liam Pur­till, Sarah John­son, An­nie McLeod, Oliver Al­mond and James Robi­nett.
