RSL makes light work of Ten­ter­field in fast one-sided encounter

Stanthorpe Border Post - - SPORT -

CRICKET: It was an­other week of one-sided games in Stan­thorpe Cricket: RSL de­mol­ished Ten­ter­field at CF White, while Wan­der­ers spanked Souths on Shea­han Oval.

Bat­ting first, Ten­ter­field bat­ted was hu­mil­i­ated for just 20.

Josh Wren backed up last week’s stel­lar per­for­mance with an­other show-stop­ping 5-10 (two-game tally of 11-22).

It only took RSL four overs to chase 20, with­out loss.

In the other game, at least the um­pires had to do some time for their money: Souths sent Wan­der­ers in on a hot af­ter­noon.

Wan­der­ers’ bat­ting showed more de­ter­mi­na­tion than last week, a mod­est all out for 152 in the 39th over.

Sev­eral Wan­der­ers bats­men made con­tri­bu­tions but Tim Harslett was the top scorer with 37 and ex­tras helped with 31.

Harry Wil­liams had best bowl­ing re­turn with 4-32.

In re­ply Weylin Aldridge and Jamie Car­nell got early break­throughs that made the task of chas­ing 152 un­likely.

En­ter Eddie Filmer, in his first game of cricket at any level, to the bowl­ing at­tack: He made a name for him­self with 5-10.

Wan­der­ers claimed a com­fort­able 84-run vic­tory.

Val­leys were af­forded the bye this week­end. Next week will be the last game in a rain-af­fected first round.

Last year’s cel­lar dwellers Wan­der­ers and Ten­ter­field go head to head. Wan­der­ers will take con­fi­dence into the game while the Val­leys and Souths clash will pro­vide in­sights into where teams sit.
