Holder ton just the tonic

Wanneroo Times - - Sport - Dustin Ed­wards

SUBIACO Floreat has put it­self in a com­mand­ing po­si­tion against Joon­dalup af­ter post­ing 257, with bats­man An­drew Holder scor­ing a bril­liant un­beaten cen­tury on Satur­day at Iluka Sports Com­plex.

The Lions did not have it all their way early, though, with the Cen­tu­ri­ons com­ing out breath­ing fire, knock­ing over Tim Mon­teleone with the first ball of the match, be­fore Harry Larmett took out Calum How and Geremy Fa­touros in quick suc­ces­sion.

How­ever, a 59-run part­ner­ship to Cameron Green and Holder came just at the right time for the Lions, help­ing to swing the mo­men­tum back in their favour as Holder played an an­chor­ing role for the rest of the in­nings.

The loss of Green at 4101, closely fol­lowed by Aaron Lilly and Joshua Parker, did noth­ing to slow Holder down as he and cap­tain Chris Hans­berry ex­e­cuted a tremen­dous sev­enth-wicket part­ner­ship worth 116.

Holder was sim­ply mag­nif­i­cent for the Lions, scor­ing an un­beaten 114 from 200 balls, which in­cluded 13 fours and one six.
