One Day Final

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.

Col Gooley Field

It has been a slow start to the season by Warnervale skipper, Simon Keen however that all changed on Saturday at Col Gooley Field against Southern Spirit.

The 2018/19 1st Grade Cricketer of the Year played a brilliant innings of 140 in his teams total of 7/256 off 40 overs. Such was Keen’s dominance his opening partnership with Tony Cornwell, who himself is an aggressive batsmen, totalled 126 of which Cornwell’s contribution was 35.

The Southern Spirit attack was hampered by an injury to Jordan O’Donnell however they had no answer to Keen with Harry Jaenke the most successful bowler with 2/48 off his seven overs.

In reply, Southern Spirit were gallant amassing 216 before being dismissed in the final over. Skipper Daniel Friend topscored with 58, whilst Ross Watson 37, Jay Starkey 30, Zane Smith 28 and Laurence Legge 24 all made solid contributions. Joey Liddle, Hunter Jackson-Sullivan and Brett Russell all took two wickets.

At Sohier Park, Lisarow Ourimbah opener Ben Cohen was at his brutal best with an unbeaten 92 which came off just 62 balls. Cohen made Wyong pay for dropping him as he dispatched the attack to all parts of the ground clearing the fence on six occasions.

Cohen’s innings enable the Magpies to pass Wyong’s total of 136 in just the 18th over to remain at the top of the ladder, yet to taste defeat.

Earlier, Wyong got themselves into a handy position at 4/105 after batting first before a late order collapse, triggered by the Sunshine brothers Ben, 4/31 and Matt 3/24, saw them dismissed for 106 off 33 overs.

Kaleb Daley topscored with 30 whilst skipper Hayden Murphy chipped in with 27.

Wyong, last years premiers now see themselves sitting at the bottom of the table, replacing Terrigal Matcham who recorded their first win of the season in a thrilling match against The Entrance at Duffy’s Road.

Batting first The Entrance put together a consistent batting effort with five of the top six batsmen reaching double figures and Marc Mariner continuing his good form topscoring with 54. Josh Bridge, Daniel Cross and Mitch Bowring each took two wickets as The Entrance finished their 40 overs at 9/150.

It has been well documented that batting has been the Bellbirds main problem this year however the return of Tim Bowring was a much needed boost.

Opening the innings Bowring did what he does best batting with patience and enabling the innings to develop. Along with opening partner Olly Twyford the pair put on 74 for the first innings, a total which the whole team has only been able to exceed once this year. Twyford was eventually run out for a well made 32. They were immediately two fa when Ryan James suffered the same fate for 1.

Through this however Bowring continued to be defiant before he was eventually dismissed for 45 off 101 balls and with the score on 115.

Bowring’s dismissal sparked a collapse which saw Terrigal lose five wickets for 16 runs to be 7/131 which soon became 8/142 and the game was in the balance.

Bridge and Cross, who were good with the ball, stood tall with the bat and were able to withstand everything The Entrance could throw at them to score the necessary runs to give Terrigal Matcham their first win of the season.

In the final game, Narara Wyoming made it two wins in a row when they upset second placed Kincumber Avoca at Gavenlock Oval.

The match was a low scoring affair with the Lions being able to defend their total of 106.

Peter Cross, returning after missing the last few matches, was the standout with the bat for Narara scoring 33 with Andy Ryan next best with 18 before becoming one of four run outs in the innings. Dylan Robertson was again the pick of the bowlers with the seasons leading wicket taker taking 3/17 off his 8 overs. Rob Lavery also returned his best figures since returning to first grade after missing last season through injury taking 2/21. Michael Drake also had an impressive day behind the stumps on his debut finishing with a catch, stumping and no byes.

Defending a small total, Narara Wyoming made the perfect start with Mitch Wood dismissing the in form Harry Woodhead in the second over. Kyle Jordan then remove Chris Clement and John McRae in quick succession and in between this Tom Owen ran out the dangerous Robertson for 1 to have the Griffens struggling at 4/11.

Kincumber Avoca were unable to put together the one good partnership they needed losing wickets at regular intervals with only Bryce Birks 23 and captain Dan Heuston 16 reaching double figures as they were dismissed for 86 in the 32nd over.

Kyle Jordan was superb leading the attack finishing with 3/14 off his 8 overs whilst Andy Ryan does what Andy Ryan does taking 3/19 also off 8 overs including the wickets of both Birks and Heuston.

Northern Power had 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.

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.
