A stunning performance from Matt Sunshine and Dave Mitchell has seen Brisbane Water record not only an upset win over Kincumber-Avoca but an outright win to headline Round 6 of the CCCA 1st Grade competition.

In other results, Wyong has moved to the top of table with an outright win over Southern Spirit, Narara-Wyoming went within one wicket of claiming outright points over The Entrance Bateau Bay, Terrigal Avoca easily accounted for Lisarow-Ourimbah whilst Northern Power had a big win over Warnervale

Heading into Day 2 at Adcock Park, Kincumber Avoca were seemingly heading for a comfortable victory and this was confirmed when they took their score from 3/48 to 3/71 in chase of Brisbane Water’s first innings total of 141. Bluetongues paceman, Matt Sunshine had other ideas however and in the space of five overs, Sunshine claimed five wickets which resulted in Kincumber Avoca being dismissed by 82, a deficit of 59 runs.

Batting a second time, Dave Mitchell showed his undoubted talent scoring 73 runs on a wicket that was difficult to bat on following overnight rain. His innings went for just 63 balls and included four fours and six sixes and enabled Brisbane Water to declare at 5/137 with a lead of 196 runs.

Searching for an outright win it was the Sunshine brothers who combined with Ben removing the Kincumber Avoca’s openers, before Matt tore through the middle order claiming another five wickets, whilst fellow paceman Dane Crocker picked up the important wicket of Kincumber Avoca skipper Steve McCabe who made 20. Kincumber Avoca were eventually dismissed in their second innings for 100 giving Brisbane Water a thoroughly deserved, and much needed outright victory, their first win of the year.

Matt Sunshine was superb using the seamer friendly conditions to his advantage finishing with the match figures of 10/48.

It was a nail biting finish at Gavenlock Oval, where Narara-Wyoming claimed the Alan Davidson Challenge Trophy by inflicting The Entrance’s first loss of the year, albeit that The Entrance were able to thwart off an outright loss by just one wicket.

Resuming their second innings with a 22 run lead on an inconsistent wicket, Narara-Wyoming were able to declare their second innings 6/166 on the back of an unbeaten 79 run seventh wicket partnership Bharath Ganapathy 50not out and Andy Ryan 36 not out. The Entrance left armer spinner, Adam Taylor took three wickets in the second innings giving him 10 wickets for the match.

The Entrance required 188 runs and Narara-Wyoming ten wickets off 31 overs to get the maximum points.

The Seagulls set off after the target in spritely fashion with Taylor (45 of 27 balls) setting the tone, however the introduction of spinner James Smith and surprise bowling option, Peter Gallichan changed the game. Following Gallichan removing the dangerous Taylor wickets fell at regular intervals and had The Entrance batting for survival as the overs counted down. In the end The Entrance last two wickets, Grant Miller, Mitch Starkey and Kobe Allison were able to survive the last eight overs (the last wicket surviving eight balls), with almost all players around the bat to avoid an outright loss. Gallichan finished with 4/21 and Smith 4/26.

Wyong moved to the top of the table with an easy outright win over Southern Spirit at Col Gooley Oval.

With 1st innings points already in the bag after Day 1, Wyong through Hayden Murphy 86 and Kaleb Daley 52 not out pushed their score to 8/264 before declaring with a lead of 159 runs.

Batting a second time Southern Spirit were dismissed for just 99 with Zac Smith the only highlight with an excellent 50, Murphy round out an excellent day by taking 5/26.

Northern Power routed the strong Warnervale batting line up on their way to a 250 run win at Woongarah Oval.

The Wildcats had no answer to the pace of Dave Molan 4/43 or the spin of Chris Archer 3/18 as they were dismissed just 98. Simon Keen topscored with 24.

Despite having 52 overs still to play Northern Power opted not to push for the outright win.

Terrigal-Matcham rebounded quickly from their last start loss with a convincing 111 runs over Lisarow Ourimbah.

After putting 266 runs on the board on Day one, the Bellbirds bowling attack went to work dismissing the Magpies for 155. Josh Bridge (2/23) did the early damage taking the first two wickets before Jaime Brien (5/45) cleaned up the lower order. Lisarow-Ourimbah import Connor Crane looked good in making 49 with veteran allrounder Mitch McBeath also producing 33 runs with the bat.
