Review

The sun shone for the first time this season not only over the Coast but also on Warnervale as the Wildcats recorded their first win of the season with an 8 wicket win over a depleted Wyong outfit at Woongarrah Oval.

Missing a number of key players including skipper, Hayden Murphy, Wyong batted first and got off to a strong start with Chris Becker 34 and Mark Baldwin 13 putting on 48 runs for the first wicket. The dismissal of Becker saw the next four wickets fall for just one run as Simon Keen and Joey Liddle did the damage. Richard Mear 33no and Jordan Freeman 21 tried hard to rescue the innings however in the end Wyong were dismissed for 135 in the 36th over.

Daniel Hill 3/24, Keen 2/5 (6 overs), Jake Crelley 2/23 and Liddle 2/32 were the best of the bowlers.

In reply Warnervale, with Mitch McNeilly at his brutal best, cruised to victory in the 21st over for the loss of 2 wickets. McNeilly finished unbeaten on 63 with Tony Cornwell 35 and Scott Atkinson 20no providing excellent support.

Kincumber Avoca continued their excellent start to the season with a convincing 109 run win over Terrigal Matcham at Duffy’s Rd.

Batting first the Griffins struggled early as Jaime Brien and Josh Bridge reduced them to 4/30. Steve McCabe, 43 and skipper to Dan Heuston, 38 consolidated the innings with a 71 run partnership. A late flurry from the lower order including 20no from Jack Heuston saw then reach 175.

Brien was the pick of the bowlers of the with 3/29 off 8 overs, Harry Brien and Zac Peters also took two wickets.

When it came their turn at the crease, Terrigal Matcham’s batting woes continue as Dylan Robertson took advantage of a spin friendly wicket to rip through the Bellbirds lineup claiming 5/13 off 7 overs. Only Ryan James 14 and Dante Otto 13 reached double figures as Terrigal Matcham were dismissed for 66.

Northern Power continued their start to the season with a 97 run win over Narara Wyoming at Harry Moore Oval.

Zac Abel 48, Jeremy O’Connell 27, Ben Gillies 27 and Matt Daniel 23 were the mainstay of the Northern Power innings which finished at 8/171 from their 40 overs. James Smith 2/38 and Kieran Lawson 2/43 were the pick of the Lions bowling attack.

Narara Wyoming innings never got started with Mark McLachlan the only players to reach double figures as they were dismissed for 74 in the 33rd over. McLachlan finished with 21.

Brendan Charlton, Josh Abel and Chris Archer were the pick of the Northern Power bowlers with two wickets apiece.

Lisarow Ourimbah remain at the top of the tree with a convincing six wicket win over Southern Spirit at Col Gooley Oval.

Batting first Southern Spirit struggled against the multi pronged attack led by Matt Jones, in his first game of the year, 3/9 off 8 overs, Ben Sunshine 3/3 off 5 overs and Matt Sunshine 2/14 were dismissed in the 30th over for 65. Jordan O’Donnell was the pick of the Spirit batters with an unbeaten 23 whilst Lachlan Cork continued his good season with 19 runs at the top of the order.

In reply Lisarow Ourimbah lost 4 wickets in passing the total in the 12th over. Ben Sunshine topscored with 22no whilst Harry Jaenke took two wickets.

The Entrance have the bye.

Here is a summation of each team as they head into the weekend.

Kincumber Avoca

Two from two last weekend and Round 3 will see them have the bye before they take on Lisarow Ourimbah in the afternoon match.

Chris Clements starred at the top of the order last weekend and will be a key again this year. Their bowling was a highlight last weekend led by surprise packet Steve McCabe whilst Bryce Birks was another who proved very economical.

Lisarow Ourimbah

Started the season well with took good wins over Wyong and Terrigal Matcham.

This week they have another two big games last year T20 Premiers, Warnervale who will desperate for a win and also Kincumber Avoca who also won both their opening games.

Blair Lindsay and Tyler Searle had good games last week with the ball whilst Ben Cohen and Chris Sheppeard showed that they will be a formidable duo at the top of the order.

Narara Wyoming

Tough start last week losing a 5 over sprint against Kincumber Avoca and then a tight match against Southern Spirit

Will be looking to open their account against The Entrance before having a bye in Round 4.

James Smith will be leading from the front whilst the experienced Peter Cross and Andy Ryan will also be key for the Lions.

Northern Power

A good first up win over Wyong last week with Brendan Charlton and Josh Abel starring with bat and ball respectively.

This week they host both Terrigal Matcham and Warnervale at Harry Moore Oval with both of those teams desperate for a win after losing their matches last week.

Southern Spirit

The surprise packets of the first day of the season with good away wins over Warnervale and Narara Wyoming giving the Spirit side their best start in many years.

They had a number of good contributors including Lachlan Cork who excelled with both bat and ball whilst Simon Mahoney was excellent with the ball. Captain, Daniel Friend was also pivotal with the bat in their win over Warnervale.

This week they return to Col Gooley Oval where they will take on last season premiers Wyong and The Entrance, two very big games.

Terrigal Matcham

Difficult start last week for Terrigal Matcham going down to both The Entrance and Lisarow Ourimbah quite convincingly.

They will be looking to turn that around this week starting with Northern Power who won their game last week. Their second game will be against Wyong at Duffy’s Road.

They will be looking to an improved showing with the bat having failed to reach 50 in either game last week. If they can get enough runs Jaime Brien, Josh Bridge and Harry Brien are capable of bowling the side to victory.

The Entrance

Mixed results last week with a strong win over Terrigal Matcham followed by a convincing loss to Kincumber Avoca.

This week they take on Narara Wyoming and Southern Spirit with the knowledge that two wins will be vital if they are to make the semi-finals.

Ash Hardy was the star last weekend top scoring in both matches whilst Jason Pereira was impressive with the ball in his return to the club.

Warnervale

The defending T20 titleholders had a sluggish start to the season losing a five over slog against Southern Spirit before having the bye in the second game.

They will be keen to get into the action when they take on Lisarow Ourimbah and Northern Power, teams who won all matches last week.

Simon Keen is the key for the Wildcats with both bat and ball whilst Brett Russell showed good early form with the bat last week.

Wyong

Not the start the defending premiers were looking for last week with two losses but they will be keen to get back on track this week when they take on Southern Spirit and Terrigal Matcham.

Club stalwart, Chris Becker turned back the clock with a good half century last week whilst Mark Leard made early in roads with the ball.
