Two cen­turies made one in­nings at Paeroa match

Hauraki Herald - - SPORT - MIKE COT­TER

Bat­ting records tum­bled in the Paeroa se­nior club cricket match played in per­fect weather con­di­tions at Cen­ten­nial Park, Paeroa on Satur­day with more than 500 runs be­ing scored and two bats­men scor­ing cen­turies in the one in­nings for the first time in a club match at the venue.

The 210-run part­ner­ship be­tween Sam Cooper (137 and Jake O’Con­nor 107 not out) is also thought to be a new record for a club match in the 40 years cricket has been played there.

Cooper and O’Con­nor also help cre­ate a new runs to­tal record for the Mor­rinsville Pi­ako team.

In a se­condary schools grade match at Hau­raki Plains Col­lege, the host 1st XI put on a much im­proved bat­ting ef­fort with Os­car Smit lead­ing the way.

The Hamil­ton Boys High School De­vel­op­ment XI, com­pris­ing of ded­i­cated young play­ers, was made to work hard for their vic­tory by a Hau­raki team which also bowled and fielded bet­ter than in pre­vi­ous out­ings this sea­son.

The Hau­raki Col­lege 2nd XI, un­beaten so far this sea­son, con­tin­ued to show im­prove­ment par­tic­u­larly re­gard­ing bowl­ing and field­ing and was able to eas­ily ac­count for the pre­vi­ously un­beaten Te Awa­mutu Col­lege 2nd XI in their match in Te Awa­mutu.

Jack Dug­gan car­ried on his fine bat­ting form and with Liam Gor­dan and Trent Jack­son adding use­ful con­tri­bu­tions, signs th­ese younger crick­eters are ready to step up a grade.
