Lisarow Ourimbah has taken out the first piece of silverware of the 2019/20 season with a five wicket win over Warnervale in the One-Day final played at Erina Oval yesterday.

Led by Greg Smith Medallist, Blair Lindsay the Magpies were made were made to work hard for the win by a gritty Warnervale side.

Winning the toss and batting, Warnervale got of to a fantastic start as skipper Simon Keen and Tony Cornwell took to the Lisarow Ourimbah attack with Keen in particular savage on the opening bowlers Matt Sunshine and Scott Burkinshaw. It took the introduction  of Matt Jones to turn the game when he had Keen caught at gully for 52 which was made off just 29 balls with four fours and four sixes. His dismissal brought an end to the opening stand of 74 in just the ninth over. Jones turned one wicket into two when he had Brett Russell caught behind in the same over for two.

When Ben Sunshine enticed Dave Mitchell to sky a ball into the safe hands of Ryan Fenning, Warnervale had lost three wickets for just 10 runs. The return of Matt Sunshine to the bowling crease had an immediate effect dismissing Tony Cornwell for a well made 36, which he followed up with the wicket of Joey Liddle caught at fine leg for 17. With the innings teetering at  5/114, Kaine Harmsworth set about rebuilding the innings with a boundary laden 34 (5 fours and a six) however his stay was ended when Lindsay induced him to a false shot and had him caught on the boundary by Burkinshaw. Lindsay then had Daniel Hill smartly stumped by Blake Crutcher for 10 before he and Jones then cleaned up the remaining wickets for just two runs to dismiss Warnervale for 167 with five and half overs still to bat. After a promising start the Wildcats would have been disappointed with the final total, however one which has been plenty to win finals in the past.

Jones was magnificent, using the pitch conditions well to finish with 4/16 off 7.3 overs whilst Lindsay took 3/22 of 8 overs with the Sunshine brothers, Matt & Ben taking two and one wickets respectively.

After enjoying a magnificent afternoon tea provided by Kincumber Avoca CC, Lisarow Ourimbah set about chasing down the 168 runs required to claim their first one-day crown.

The chase however did not start well with Simon Keen dismissing the dangerous Ben Cohen for 9 in the third over. Lindsay joined Chris Sheppeard and the pair took the score to 45 before Sheppeard was sensationally caught one handed on the boundary by Mitch McNeilly for 20. Ryan Fenning came in and was in an aggressive frame of mind finding the boundary on three occasions however Joey Liddle enticed him into a false sweep shot in his first over and had him bowled for 14. Daniel Hill then had Matt Jones well caught at the wicket by Scott Atkinson without scoring and with the score at 4/76 the game was well in the balance.

Throughout this Lindsay was standing tall and when Ben Sunshine joined his skipper the pair dug in for the second time on the weekend having put on a partnership of 131 the day before. With a mixture of smart batting and judicious hitting the pair gradually started the reel in the total and when Lindsay passed 50 the deficit was just 45. With the one-day title in their grasp Lindsay eventually fell to Karan Katli for an excellent 70 scored off 98 balls with nine boundaries.

The glory of hitting the winning runs fell to Sunshine who hit Keen for a boundary to bring up an excellent half century and give the Magpies victory with 27 balls remaining.

Keen was the pick of the bowlers looking dangerous and finishing with 1/24 off 6.3 overs.

Lindsay was named player of the match for his excellent allround performance whilst special mention also goes to Keen, Jones and Ben Sunshine.

Congratulations however go to the winners, Lisarow Ourimbah.

Lisarow Ourimbah will play Warnervale in the CCCA 1st Grade Grand Final next Sunday @ Erina Oval after a dramatic final weekend of the competition.

With Wyong being the only team to win two games, the side to play Lisarow Ourimbah in the final ebbed and flowed all weekend.

Warnervale started the weekend in second position, however it looked as though their chances of making the final were dashed on Saturday when they were convincingly defeated by Narara Wyoming, however they hit back dramatically on Sunday with a bonus point win over Terrigal Matcham with Simon Keen and Kaine Harmsworth starring.

The loss ended Terrigal Matcham’s finals ambitions after they moved into contention on Saturday with a 55 run win over Southern Spirit with Ryan James returning to form with 88.

With Warnervale faltering on Saturday, The Entrance moved into second position with 77 runs from skipper Lochie Gale leading them to a  solid win over Northern Power. Knowing a victory on Sunday over Wyong would almost guarantee them a finals berth, they suffered a surprise loss to Wyong which saw them drop out of finals contention.

With this occurring, the door was ajar for Narara Wyoming to steal an unlikely finals berth on the back of a bonus point win on Saturday over Warnervale with of 55 from Peter Cross, 40 from Ethan Lulham a and late from Kyle Jordan 40no leading the way with the bat. Skipper James Smith then did the damage with the ball taking 4/16. To make the final Narara Wyoming would need to beat the undefeated Lisarow Ourimbah at Sohier Park, no easy feat.

Not to be deterred though excellent bowling from Mitch Wood 3/17 and Kieran Lawson 3/18 saw the much vaunted Lisarow Ourimbah batting lineup dismissed for just 104, which was only achieved through good batting from youngster, Tyler Searle at the death who scored an unbeaten 29. Needing 105 for a finals berth the Lions were looking good at 0/25 however the introduction to Matt Jones to the bowling attack changed the game completely, Jones ripped through the Narara Wyoming batting lineup taking 6/11 off his 8 overs as the visitors were dismissed for just 52 and ending their finals dream.

Entering the weekend Kincumber Avoca had visions of making the final, however two poor batting performances saw them lose both their matches against Wyong and Northern Power, the latter who recovered from losing their match against the Entrance on Saturday which ended their finals chances.

Wyong were out of finals contention leading into the weekend, however ended their weekend buoyed by two good wins over finals contenders Kincumber Avoca and The Entrance and they will enter the two day component of the CCCA season full of confidence.

All in all it the one-day final will come to a fitting climax between two very good limited over teams.

Prior to that however all teams will now move into the longer format of the season with two day matches starting next Saturday.
