Southern cricket - week seven

A GREAT all-round effort from Jamie Maddox guided New Norfolk I to yet another victory in the Southern Cricket Association last weekend. Maddox had a real day out, scoring 83 and then taking 6 for 15 in what ended up as another big win for the Red Caps. Maddox came in to bat when the score was 6 for 118. He put on 82 with coach Adrian Eiszele adding 21. New Norfolk finished 9 for 231 with Ashley Morgan also doing and well making 38. New Norfolk went about dismantling Derwent, bundling them out for just 82. The excellent spell of bowling from Maddox was the main factor in Derwent's small total.

The Ben Eyles Memorial match between Molesworth I and Gretna I at Boyer Oval on Saturyda saw Molesworth back on the winners list, downing Gretna by three wickets. Gretna had first hit, making the small total of 148 with Craig Cunningham top-scoring with 34. Man of the match Nathan Eiszele bowled very well for Molesworth and finished with fine figures of 5-26 off 10 overs. In reply Molesworth lost seven wickets in the run chase with two overs to spare. Mathew Smith contributed a well made 65 and Josh Bomford was next best with 30. At the end of the match, members of the Eyles family presented Molesworth captain Brad Coppleman with the Ben Eyles Memorial Trophy and the the man of the match award to Nathan Eiszele. Molesworth has now won the memorial trophy both times since it started last season.

Bushy Park recored its first win of the season with a big eight-wicket win over the MacKillop Beltas at Bushy Park. Mitchell Crosswell top-scored with 51 and Danny Mason also did well with 34. Captain Troy Smith bowled very well taking 4 for 35 as did Mitch Crosswell who capped off a great day finishing with fine figures of 3 for 13 off 10 overs.

In fourth grade, Gretna II lost its first match for the season, going down to lower-placed Dynnyrne by two wickets. Gretna II made 4 for 259 off its 50 overs with captain Joey Eyles making a excellent 95 not out and opener Nick Wakefield also did well making 62. This wasn't enough however, with Dynnyrne reaching the total with 4.1 overs to spare. Adam Browning and Brock Nichols were the main wicket takers with two each. Dropped catches didn't help Gretna's cause.

In fifth grade Molesworth II had a good win over MacRobies Gully by 51 runs. Youngster Jye County made a superb 85 in an innings that included 11-4s and 2-6s. Well done Jye. For the bowling for Molesworth, Aaron Triffitt continues to impress, taking 4-28. The young brigade in the side have really stepped up to the plate this season, paving the way for many more wins.

In the other fifth grade match New Norfolk lost to Dynnyrne by six wickets. Only one batsman for New Notfolk was able to reach double figures - young Mitchell Rice who is showing signs of becoming a good cricketer and making 44. Adam Nossiter tried hard to keep the red caps in it, and finished with three wickets.
