First grade continues on Saturday with the second day of Round 11 getting underway with all games still well and truly in the balance.

Over at Erina Oval, Terrigal will be looking to secure the last eight runs needed for first innings victory but with only one wicket in hand, Kincumber will be on the hunt. After a tight LBW shout last week was turned down, Harry Brien and Daniel Cross survived to the end of play. However, the Bellbirds will be well situated with key batsmen, Lloyd Radcliffe coming in for Week 2 replacing Brien and will be slightly more confident. The Griffins will be hoping Dylan Robertson continues from his 5fer from last week to claim the last wicket whilst youngster Dylan Booth is a chance at his maiden first grade five wicket haul if he can claim the last one. Either way, both teams will be looking for more points in the second innings, looking at some of their batsmen to turn around their performance so far this match, to climb a few spots on the ladder.

Onto Gavenlock Oval in another low scoring affair, Northern Power will be looking for a big partnership early in their hunt of Narara’s 102. Sitting at 4-19 with skipper Chris Archer and Matthew Clarke, keeping wickets in hand early will be their mindset and will be looking for their long batting line-up led by batsmen Brendan Charlton and Josh Abel, to chase this total down. On the other hand, Kyle Jordan was fantastic late last week picking up three wickets and he will be keen to capture a few more with Andy Ryan, Mark McLaughlin and James Smith wanting to make life hard going for the Power batsmen.

At Baker Park, Warnervale will need to bat all day and bat well if they are to chase down Wyong’s imposing 343. At stumps, Warnervale were 0-20 off six overs with Tony Cornwell and Scott Atkinson the not out batsmen. Captain Simon Keen will want to keep his excellent form from the last month going and he and the Wildcats will be looking for someone in their top five to make a big score. A big score on the board will give Wyong’s young bowling attack a lot of confidence with last week’s century maker Kaleb Daley, Lachlan Rainger and Bailey King able to set some attacking fields and will be well supported by experienced quinella Hayden Murphy and skipper Mark Leard.

In the final match of the round, Southern Spirit will need their stars to show up for them to chase down Lisarow’s 274. Daniel Friend is one of the best bats on the coast when in form and will be key for the Spirit but he is not alone with Laurence Legge and Zane Smith proven run makers on the Coast. For the Magpies, the welcome return of Matt Jones for Week 2 is a bonus along with Scott Burkinshaw, Blair Lindsay and the Sunshine brothers, Matt and Ben, they will be looking to take 10 wickets and continue their unbeaten season.

It again looks to be another great week for First Grade cricket so get down to a game if you’re free and watch some quality local cricket.

The CCCA 1st Grade competition moved into two day mode on Saturday with some interesting developments after Day 1.

Warnervale have a long run chase ahead of them after Kaleb Daley (photo) and Hayden Murphy helped Wyong amass 343 runs

Kaleb Daley.

Coming together with Wyong precariously placed at 4/64, Daley and Murphy put together a partnership of 190 to gain the upperhand before Murphy was dismissed just three short of a well deserved century, scored of just 89 balls. Following Murphy's dismissal, 17 year old Daley continued on to record his maiden 1st Grade century eventually being dismissed for 130 made off 141 balls and included 15 fours and four sixes. 

Warnervale's 15 year old off spinner, Karan Katli, with just a handful of first grade games under his belt bowled a marathon 28 overs to finish with an excellent haul of 7/137.

Warnervale safely negotiated six overs prior to stumps and will resume next week on 0/20.

A century to Lisarow Ourimbah's, Blair Lindsay and a hat-trick to Southern Spirit's, Simon Mahoney were the highlights of their clash at Sohier Park.

Batting first the ladder leaders were in trouble at 3/24 after Mahoney dismissed Ben Cohen, Mitch McBeath and Tyler Searle in consecutive deliveries.  Ben Sunshine joined Lindsay and the pair resurrected the innings with a partnership of 131 before Sunshine was dismissed for a well made 77. Lindsay continued on to make his first 1st Grade century for Lisarow Ourimbah eventually being dismissed for 101 (185 balls, 11 fours). Scott Burkinshaw 31 and Matt Sunshine 24 not out put on valuable runs at the end before Lisarow Ourimbah were dismissed for 274. 

Mahoney finished with 3/31 whilst Lachlan Cork also took three wickets.

Southern Spirit will resume next week at 0/8.

1st innings points are well and truly up for grabs at Gavenlock Oval where Narara Wyoming hosted Northern Power.

The Power gained the upper hand dismissing Narara Wyoming for just 102 with David Molan a standout with 5/26 off 24 overs and the spin twins Nick Babcock and Chris Archer each taking two wickets. Tom Owen and Ethan Lulham were the best of the Narara Wyoming batsmen with 22 runs apiece.

Batting at Gavenlock Oval is not easy and Narara Wyoming got themselves right back in the game by having Northern Power 4/19 at stumps with Kyle Jordan continuing his good form picking up three wickets including the valuable scalps of Ben Gillies and Zac Abel.

The final match between Kincumber Avoca and Terrigal Matcham at Erina Oval is also set for a thrilling conclusion and with a strong possibility of outright points next week.

On a wicket described as unpredictable at best, 19 wickets fell for just 193 runs which leaves the home side requiring one wicket and Terrigal Matcham 8 runs to gain 1st innings points.

Winning the toss and batting, Kincumber Avoca were on the back foot slumping to 4/24 following excellent new ball bowling by Terrigal Matcham captain, Harry Brien. Dylan Robertson stood firm for the Griffins however when he fell to Jack Swainston for 25 the score was 5/50. Solid late order batting pushed the score to 100, which is normally not enough at Erina Oval.

Brien finished 3/21 off 11.3 overs whilst Daniel Cross 3/14 off 5.3 was also excellent. 

With little amount of runs to defend early wickets are vital and Dylan Booth delivered for Kincumber Avoca dismissing Tim Bowing and Ryan James  with just 13 runs on the board. Dante Otto and Reece Bombas settled the ship for Terrigal Matcham taking the score to 52 before Booth dismissed Otto. This dismissal and the introduction of Dylan Robertson changed the course of the match as Terrigal Matcham lost seven wickets  for 17 runs including Bombas for a very patient, and important 28. Robertson had claimed five of the seven wickets to fall in this period. 

At 9/69, 1st innings points were all but in the bag for Kincumber Avoca however, after coming up big with ball, Brien and Cross then dug in with the bat and at stumps had taken their side to within 8 runs of 1st innings points with a partnership of 24. 

Robertson was again superb with his left arm spin taking 5/15 off 14 overs whilst Booth did the damage up front taking 4/25.

The Entrance have the bye.

One Day Final

       

1 Dec 19

Lisarow Ourimbah

v

Warnervale

Erina Oval 

Saturday will see the commencement of the two day matches and with a new points structure in place all teams will be eagerly chasing positive results to move into finals contention.

All eyes however will be on the one-day which will pit some of the best cricketers on the Coast against each other.

Lisarow Ourimbah have been the standout team this team having won all of their ten games this year and also only failing to pick up a bonus point on one occasion.

They have a very strong and well balanced team headlined by opener Ben Cohen who is capable of destroying any attack on the Central Coast. If he and fellow opener Chris Sheppeard get going it will spell trouble for Warnervale. Should they fail the Magpies still have the likes of representative players Blair Lindsay, Matt Jones, Ryan Fenning, Ben Sunshine and Blake Crutcher to follow whilst 15 year old Tyler Searle is getting better each time he takes to the crease. With the ball Lisarow Ourimbah have a well balanced attack led by NSW Country quick Scott Burkinshaw and Matt Sunshine, who has had a great start to the season. Jones, Ben Sunshine, Mitch McBeath will provide medium pace support whilst Lindsay and Searle will provide the spin options.

Warnervale themselves have plenty of stars and they don’t come any bigger than Simon Keen who is arguably the number one short form player in the competition, whether it be with bat or ball. The former Sixes and Thunder BBL star started the season off slowly however had been in supreme form of late and if he gets going Warnervale will be right in this match. Keen will have valuable support from former Australian Country representative Kaine Harmsworth, who despite playing limited matches in recent time roared back to form with the ball last week with a five wicket haul to propel the Wildcats into the final. David Mitchell is another player who has recently joined Warnervale and his inclusion has strengthened a batting lineup which includes Central Coast representative Tony Cornwell, Brett Russell, Chris Harper and Jake Crelley. Warnervale lineup also includes Mitch McNeilly who is capable of turning a match in a heartbeat with is hard hitting as has been shown a couple of time this year already as well as in last years T20 final which he claimed Man of the Match honours in the Wildcats victory. Harmsworth and Keen will be keys with ball for Warnervale with support coming from the reliable Daniel Hill, McNeilly, Crelley and spinner Joey Liddle whilst the experience of Scott Atkinson behind the stumps is invaluable. Warnervale also have their own youngster in  16 year old Hunter Jackson-Sullivan who is slowly making his way at this level.

Form this season points to a Lisarow Ourimbah win however they have been tested in their last two outings against Kincumber Avoca and Narara Wyoming. Warnervale on the other hand have mixed their form this year, having not won any of their T20 matches at the beginning of the year before winning four of their six one day matches. Keen in their barometer as when he fires Warnervale normally win when he doesn’t they normally get beat.

Should be a fascinating encounter.

The match commences at 12pm at Erina Oval.

Current One-Day table:
Lisarow Ourimbah 100%, Kincumber Avoca 66.6%, Warnervale 60%, Narara Wyoming 53.3%, The Entrance 50%, Northern Power 50%, Terrigal Matcham 40%, Southern Spirit 13.3%, Wyong 6.7%

This week’s Match of the Round is the top of table clash at Erina Oval between Kincumber Avoca and Lisarow Ourimbah.

The Magpies have taken all before them this year, unbeaten in all matches and having claimed bonus points in all three one-day matches whilst Kincumber Avoca enter the match after a surprise loss to Narara Wyoming last week.

The clash will also see a match up of the competitions leading run scorer Ben Cohen (Lisarow Ourimbah) against the leading wicket taker, Dylan Robertson (Kincumber Avoca).

The Griffins will welcome back skipper Steve McCabe who has been in great touch with the bat this year.

These two sides met in a T20 match earlier in the year which went down to the final ball and another close match is expected.

Warnervale will host Northern Power in a match that will see the loser almost bow out of contention for this title. The Wildcats prospects are greatly enhanced by the return to form of their captain Simon Keen and if he can replicate last weeks innings it will make life very difficult for Northern Power.

Northern Power will be refreshed having had a two week break and will be looking to their representative players in Chris Archer and Brendon Charlton to lead the way. Last years second leading run scorer Brett Lenton is yet to make an impact this season however if he can find some form the Power will be tough to beat.

The Entrance host Southern Spirit at Jubilee Park with both sides coming off a last start loss.

Southern Spirit were strong with the bat led by their captain Daniel Friend however their bowling was unable to contain Simon Keen and they will be looking for an improvement in that area this week. Harry Jaenke has had a very good start to the season and sits in second place on the wicket takers table.

The Entrance have been consistent all year without being outstanding and that can also be said about the individual players. Marc Mariner has been a standout player with the bat whilst Adam Taylor has been best with the ball.

In the final game Wyong are at home to Terrigal Matcham and they will be looking to get their season back on track as they are currently sitting at the bottom of the table.

Terrigal Matcham on the other hand are buoyed following their first win of the year albeit they will need to win all remaining one day matches if they are to repeat last years performance in making the final of this competition.

The return of Tim Bowring was instrumental to last week’s win and he will be again be a key figure in this contest.

Wyong were outclassed last week against the league leaders and will need to show more discipline with the bat if they are to get away with a win.

Narara Wyoming have the bye.

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.
