Review

A tied match between Narara-Wyoming and Terrigal Avoca highlighted Round 7 of the Central Coast Cricket 1st Grade competition played on Saturday.

Wyong remained on top of the table whilst The Entrance, Lisarow-Ourimbah and Brisbane Water all recorded victories.

Resuming at 5/45 in chase of Narara-Wyoming first innings total of 148, Terrigal-Match looked set for victory after Mitch Bowring (39) and Ryan James (57) saw them needing 6 runs for victory with two wicket remaining.

The Lions however once again displayed their never say die and attached and led by underrated paceman Kieran Lawson were able to dismiss Josh Bridge with the score on 143 and then Lawson trapped James in front with the scores tied. Amazingly it is Narara-Wyoming’s third tie in the last couple of years.

James, in his first bat for the year, displayed his class to record an effortless half century whilst Lawson was a standout taking 5/9 off 16 overs.

Wyong remained on top of the table but not before receiving an almighty scare from Northern Power.

Resuming at 2/103 requiring another 50 runs for victory, the Roos crashed to be 8/141 on the back of a superb spell from recently anointed NSW Country spinner Chris Archer, 6/46.

Requiring 23 runs for victory youngster Harry Townsend (4 not out off 40 balls) and keeper BJ Whiteing (17 not out also off 40 balls) were very composed and able to score the required runs for victory.

Wyong skipper, Hayden Murphy top scored with 72.

The Entrance moved back into the top four courtesy of a 161 run win over Warnervale at Jubilee Oval.

Set 328 for victory Warnervale were dismissed for 186 with Joey Liddle 38, Tony Cornwell 35 and Simon Keen 32 the best performed batsmen.

Mitch Starkey was the leading The Entrance bowler taking 3/43 including the wickets of Cornwell, Keen and Chris Harper. Grant Miller also excelled with the ball taking 3/54.

Brisbane Water recorded their second consecutive outright win defeating Southern Spirit by nine wicket at Col Gooley Field.

Winless after the first five rounds the Bluetongues now find themselves just one point outside the top four.

After being in complete control after day 1, Brisbane Water were defied by Southern Spirit who put in their best batting performance of the year led by 76 not out from skipper Daniel Friend.

Eventually they were dismissed in the 70th over for 188 leaving Brisbane Water requiring 92 runs for victory which Brisbane Water duly achieved in the 18th over with Ben Cohen continuing a fine match with the bat finishing 53 not out.

Trent Scott 3/39 and Kevin Searle 3/55 were the pick of the Brisbane Water bowling.

In the final game, Lisarow-Ourimbah recorded a first innings win over Kincumber Avoca at Erina Oval.

With Lisarow already taking first innings points on day 1, neither side were able to force an outright win with Kincumber-Avoca batting out the day to finish on 8/132 when stumps were called.

Jack Heuston 37 and Steve McCabe 34 were the best of the Kincumber-Avoca batsmen whilst Jake Cherniayeff 3/19 and Scott Burkinshaw 2/45 were the leading Lisarow-Ourimbah bowlers.

Review

A magnificent 169 not out from The Entrance’s young gun, Broc Hardy was the highlight of the first day of Round 7, a day in which ball dominated the bat.

At Jubilee Oval it was the Broc Hardy show, as the 16 year old carried his bat throughout The Entrance’s innings to finish with 169 not out as his side finished with 327. After surviving an appeal for caught behind in the first over, Hardy took complete control in an innings which lasted 253 balls and included 23 fours and a six. Hardy shared an opening wicket partnership of 143 with Shaun Byfield (62) to set the Seagulls on the way to a big score.

Opening bowler Mitch McNeill was the pick of the bowlers finishing with 3/50 off 18 overs whilst Joseph Liddle and Daniel Watson each finishing with two wickets.

Warnervale will start next week on 1/20 after Lance Keen was dismissed late in the day.

Wyong are well placed to retain top position in their match with Northern Power at Baker Park.

Winning the toss and batting first, promoted opener Brett Lenton got his side off to a flyer with 52 off 43 balls, however he was the only Power batsmen to make an impact as Kaleb Daley 3/23, Bailey King 3/18 and Harry Townsend 2/33 were able to take regular wickets to dismiss Northern Power for 162 runs.

With the bat, skipper Hayden Murphy, 61 not out led the way for Wyong who finished on 2/113 at stumps, just 50 runs from victory.

At Duffy’s Road, Narara-Wyoming led by Kieran Lawson hit back late in the day to rock Terrigal-Matcham, whose bowlers did an excellent job in dismissing the Lions for just 148.

Veteran, Andy Ryan used all his experience to top score for Narara-Wyoming with 41, whilst Daniel Beswick 38 and skipper Peter Gallichan 26 also chipped in with handy runs. Bellbirds skipper Harry Brien was the most successful bowler finishing with 4/18.

Having to survive 15 overs before stumps, Terrigal Matcham has slumped to be 5/35 with key batsmen Lloyd Radcliffe, Tim Bowring and Kyle James all back in the pavilion. Lawson was the star finishing with 3/0 off 4 overs whilst Ryan capped off a good day with two wickets.

There were plenty of wickets to fall at Erina Oval with Lisarow Ourimbah having already claimed first innings points, albeit the match is still up for grabs.

Batting first on a difficult wicket, Erina were dismissed for just 51 as representative spinner Blair Lindsay ripped through their lineup taking 5/13 off 9 overs. Paceman Jake Chernaiyeff and Mitch Pennington provided assistance with two wickets apiece.

Lisarow-Ourimbah faired not much better when it was their turn to bat and at one stage had slumped to 5/28 as Bryce Birks 4/9 was creating havoc with his spin. Nathan Walton, 25 was able to steady the ship for the Magpies and with the help of the lower order were able to reach 91 and a lead of 40 runs.

Kincumber Avoca will resume next week at 1/12 and with plenty of work to do to avoid a second consecutive outright loss.

Brisbane Water are in an almost unassailable position as they look to secure their second consecutive outright win having already gain first innings points against Southern Spirit at Col Gooley Field.

Batting first Laurence Legge and Mitch Bursle were the only Soutehrn Spirit batsmen to reach double figures (22 each) as they were dismissed for 66. Trent Scott 4/21 and the evergreen Kevin Searle 3/17 did the damage with the ball for Brisbane Water.

Brisbane Water skipper, Ben Cohen then led the way with the bat scoring 85 after opening the batting, enabling his team to declare their first innings at 7/163.

Batting a second time Southern Spirit made a better fist of the task putting on 44 for the first wicket, with Legge (36) again batting well, however two late wickets has them resuming at 2/48, still trailing by 49 runs.
