Souths climb to top with Ten­ter­field win

Stanthorpe Border Post - - SPORT -

CRICKET: Two games of T20 were played on the week­end due to the Sun­day rep­re­sen­ta­tive game.

Souths played Ten­ter­field on Fri­day night and got the job done, putting them top of the ta­ble. On Satur­day RSL edged out Val­leys.

In the night game, Ten­ter­field bat­ted first and com­piled a com­pet­i­tive 5-123 off their 20 overs.

Most of the Ten­ter­field bats­men got a start, with A Jen­nings top scor­ing with 31. Harry Wil­liams was the only mul­ti­ple wicket taker grab­bing two.

Harry Wil­liams (50*) and Alex Cameron (25) opened the bat­ting for Souths.

In the other tie Val­leys bat­ted first and quite a few of their play­ers got starts, but no one went on with it. Steve Martin clubbed 20 in the lower or­der.

They put to­gether a steady all out for 110 in 19 overs. Tom Gar­land re­turned 3-22 off his four overs. Duane Li­hou blew out the cob­webs to grab three late wick­ets. In re­ply RSL chased the to­tal down in 19.1 overs, but there were some ner­vous mo­ment as they lost seven wick­ets in do­ing so. The re­turn of Ross Lup­ton (34) in the mid­dle or­der was the defin­ing in­nings in the RSL chase.

The points ta­ble now has Souths and RSL on 16. Wanderers are on 14 with a game in hand. Val­leys on eight and Ten­ter­field two.
