Warnervale continued their impressive T20 form and remain the only side to win all four T20 matches this year whilst Kincumber-Avoca put in arguably their best day of the season recording two wins.

Terrigal Matcham and Southern Spirit have yet to record a win during the four T20 matches with Terrigal Matcham now dropping to 9th position on the ladder, after sitting in the top four prior to the commencement of the T20 campaign.

Warnervale captain, Simon Keen continuing his excellent form scoring 43 in both matches and also picking up three wickets in the Wildcats wins over Terrigal Matcham and Lisarow Ourimbah.

Young gun , Broc Hardy continued his excellent season scoring 63 not out in The Entrance’s win over Northern Power. He also contributed four wickets across the two matches whilst Mitchell Starkey was again a standout with five wickets.

Lisarow Ourimbah recruit Cormac McLoughlin-Gavin had his best score for the season scoring 62 not out in the Magpies much needed win over Southern Spirit. Lisarow-Ourimbah would also have been impressed with the performance of young spinner Tom Horner who took five wickets.

52 run to Brett Lenton and four wickets to spinner Nic Babcock saw Northern Power record a much sought after win against Brisbane Water, with the Bluetongues having a miserable weekend with the bat scoring just 89 and 66 in their two matches.

Former NSW Country bowler, Jamie Rowe was the star for Kincumber Avoca taking five wickets in their wins against Narara-Wyoming and Terrigal-Matcham, the second of which was decided on run rate. Chris Swaine was also impressive scoring 42 in the loss to Narara-Wyoming with the Lions buoyed by the return of former representative batsmen Peter Cross who score 28.

After losing to Kincumber-Avoca, spinner James Smith 4/14 was instrumental in their win over previous leaders Wyong, who had earlier defeated Brisbane Water with a late cameo, 33 from veteran Rob Westley getting them to a competitive total before the bowlers shared the wickets in dismissing Brisbane Water for 89.
