Review

A big day of cricket on Saturday to complete Round 8 with victories to Brisbane Water, Warnervale, Kincumber-Avoca, The Entrance and Southern Spirit, who tasted success for the first time this season.

Brisbane Water continued their amazing turnaround by defeating Wyong outright by three wickets at Fagan Park.

After not having won a game in the first four rounds the Bluetongues have since won three consecutive matches outright to move into equal first position on the ladder.

Having already wrapped up first innings points on day one, it was the Sunshine brothers who set up the outright win with a brilliant bowling display.

Resuming at 0/56, Wyong were unable to handle the seam bowling of the duo and only Ben Whiteing was able to show any resistance topscoring with an unbeaten 35 batting at number 10.

Ben Sunshine turned back the clock finishing with figures of 7/29 off 14.3 overs whilst Matt continued his good run of form picking up the other three wickets.

Needing 135 runs for outright points the Bluetongues attacked the target aggressively, first through skipper Ben Cohen, 25 ( 3 fours, 2 sixes) and then Dave Mitchell 49 (4 fours and 4 sixes) and Ben Sunshine 20 (2 sixes) and despite a late scare, losing 5/16 to be 7/126, Matt Sunshine and Shaun Hill were able to secure the outright victory target without the loss of any further wickets.

Murphy was the pick of the Wyong bowlers finishing with 4/33.

Southern Spirit were celebrating on Saturday night after recording their first win of the year, defeating Lisarow-Ourimbah by 15 runs at Sohier Park.

After scoring 220 runs on Day 1, Southern Spirit led by quicks Jordan O’Donnell 4/60) , Harry Jaenke (3/43) and skipper Daniel Friend 2/45) were able to hang tough and rip through the Lisarow-Ourimbah lower order to record a memorable win.

Lisarow-Ourimbah skipper Blair Lindsay will no doubt be wondering what went wrong as the Magpies appeared to be cruising at 4/176 before losing their last six wickets for just 29 runs.

Lindsay topscored with 58 whilst import Connor Crane also recorded a half century (50).

Two outstanding individual performances highlighted the second day of the match at Woongarrah Oval between Warnervale and Terrigal-Matcham.

The Wildcats led by teenage off-spinner, Joey Liddle recorded a much needed 37 run win.

Bowling unchanged, Liddle finished with 6/69 off 28 overs remaining patient on a wicket that was providing moderate support.

Whilst Liddle was the star for Warnervale it was Lloyd Radcliffe who stood out for Terrigal Matcham. Radcliffe who normally opens the batting came to the crease with his side at 4/64 after Zac Peters was run out in the first over of the day.

The rangy left handed mixed resolute defence with attacking stroke play to put together an innings of 78 runs, and whilst he was at the crease Terrigal-Matcham were a chance for an unlikely victory. His dismissal however saw the Terrigal-Matcham tail succumb to Liddle and were dismissed for 200.

The Entrance flexed their muscles to outclass Northern Power by 116 runs at Harry Moore Oval to move back to the top of the ladder.

The Northern Power top order had no answer to The Entrance paceman Mitchell Starkey 4/20 and Kobe Allison 3/35 and were on the back foot after losing both openers, including Jeremy O’Connell without a run on the board.

Ben Gillies, 32 and youngster Jake Holmes 17 were able to steady the innings with a partnership of 53 for the third wicket however their dismissal (both to Starkey) saw the innings crumble to be all out for 126 with Dave Molan the only other batsmen to reach double figures, scoring 20 batting at number 10.

Kincumber-Avoca welcomed the rain on Saturday afternoon as they recorded their second win of the year defeating Narara-Wyoming by one wicket at Gavenlock Oval.

Chasing Narara-Wyoming’s first innings score of 136, the Griffins were 9/108 when the storm arrived forcing the players from the field. Unable to return to the field the match was decided on rate rate, which when calculated had Kincumber-Avoca in front by just two runs.

As has been the case all game batsmen found runs hard to come by, except for Kincumber-Avoca star Stephen McCabe who looked as if he was playing on a different wicket putting together an innings of 64 runs (next highest score in the match was 29) which included seven fours and two sixes off 123 balls. McCabe’s innings kept Kincumber-Avoca in the game with Dan Heuston the only the other batsmen to get past 8, scoring 13.

For Narara-Wyoming, Mark McLachlan 3/23 and Kyle Jordan 3/18, whilst Michael Shelley looked like bowling the Lions victory taking 2/9 late including the wicket of McCabe.

Review

All five matches are evenly poised after Day 1 of Round 8 of the CCCA 1st Grade competition played on Saturday.

In the Grand Final rematch at Harry Moore Oval, it was The Entrance’s Ben Day who again thwarted Northern Power as the Seagulls batted all day to finish on 242.

Northern Power could not have started any better by having key The Entrance batsmen Adam Taylor, Shaun Byfield and Broc Hardy all back in the pavilion with just five runs on the board.

However, as was the case in last years Grand Final, the experienced Day came to the rescue for the visitors and with the aid of skipper Lochie Gale, 73 the pair were able to put on 168 runs for the fourth wicket. Day was unlucky to miss out on his century as Dave Molan had the left hander caught at the wicket for 91.

Jason Blackwood, 28 and a last wicket stand of 26 frustrated the tiring Power attack, who will need a strong batting performance if they are to get the win next week.

Molan was the pick of the bowlers finishing with 3/66 off a marathon 28 overs whilst Chris Archer and Jeremy O’Connell each picked up two wickets.

Brisbane Water continued their recent resurgence, by claiming first innings points over Wyong, however the ladder leaders hit back hard late in the day to keep an outright win a possibility at Fagan Park.

Winning the toss and batting first, Wyong were dismissed for just 149 runs with skipper Hayden Murphy a standout with 86 runs, whilst Kaleb Daley, 38 was the only other batsmen to reach double figures.

The wickets were evenly shared around for Brisbane Water with Dane Crocker, 3/37, Ben Cphen 2/13 and Matt Sunshine, 2/19 the pick.

Brisbane Water chased first innings points with plenty of gusto with Ben Sunshine 68 not out, Ben Cohen 37 and Dave Mitchell 29 having their team well placed at 3/89 before the introduction of teenage gun, Harrison Townsend changed the momentum of the match.

Townsend’s left arm spin, ripped through the Brisbane Water lower order and his 5/19 off 9 overs, saw Brisbane Water dismissed for 161, with a lead off just 12, well short of what it looked like it could have been.

Batting a second time, Wyong finished the day at 0/54 and a lead of 42 runs.

It was a dour affair at Gavenlock Oval between Narara-Wyoming and Kincumber Avoca with just 148 runs scored off 90 overs for the loss off 12 wickets.

Batting first Narara-Wyoming were dismissed for 136 of 74 overs with Andy Ryan again top scoring with 29 and opener Mark McLachlan chipping in with 24.

Youngster Etan Short was the pick off the Kincumber-Avoca bowlers taking 3/11, whilst Jack McRae was influential in the middle order finishing with 3/13.

In reply, Kincumber finished the day at 2/12 with plenty of work still to do.

Half centuries to John Boyd, 57 , Tony Cornwell 56 and Mitch McNeilly 55 saw Warnervale record a very competitive total of 237 against Terrigal Matcham at Woongarah Oval.

Jaime Brien was again Terrigal Matcham’s most successful bowler finishing with 4/52 whilst Josh Bridge 3/59 and Zac Peters 2/49 also bowled well.

At stumps Terrigal Matcham finished at 3/64, however key batsmen Tim Bowring, 31 and Ryan James, 24 have both been dismissed.

In the final game at Sohier Park, Southern Spirit put in their best batting performance of the year to give themselves a chance to record their first win of the year against Lisarow-Ourimbah.

Led by 51 from Laurence Legge and 29’s from Daniel Friend, Zane Smith and Jordan O’Donnell, the Spirit were dismissed for 220.

Blair Lindsay was the most successful Lisarow Ourimbah bowler taking four wickets with his left arm spin whilst Scott Burkinshaw and Mitch McBeath each took two wickets.

Lisarow-Ourimbah made a positive start to the chase and at stumps were 1/68 with Lindsay unbeaten on 43.
