Southern cricket - round 17

AN excellent 194 from New Norfolk II batsman Richard Munnings helped the Red Caps to a huge 330-run victory over Dynnyrne at Wentworth Park on Sunday. New Norfolk racked up the massive total of 6 for 463 off its 50 overs, with four batsman making more than 50. Munnings belted 30 fours and two sixes during his stay at the crease. The century-maker had partnerships of 146 with Jamie Hill, 143 with Rohan Heron and 109 with Leigh Berry who also got amongst the runs with 82 (16 fours). Munnings was eventually bowled out with the score at 5-459. In reply the home side was no match for New Norfolk and was bundled out for 133. Brad Kemmler with three wickets and Ashley Morgan with two were the best of the Red Cap bowlers.

In Second Grade, Molesworth I kept its winning run intact, defeating Sandford by 177 runs. Molesworth had first hit making 233, with the Adams brothers Jamie 58 and Daniel 24 leading the way. In reply Sandford was bundled out for just 56. This was due to the great bowling of Mathew Smith 5-17 and Chris Slater 4-20. The pair skittled through the Sandford batsman like ninepins. It wasn't all good news for Molesworth though, with this match being moved to Bushy Park due to the pitch at Boyer Oval being vandalised.

New Norfolk I sewed up top spot on the Second Grade ladder with a hard-fought three-wicket win over Montagu Bay. The visitors had first dig and made 90. In reply the Red Caps made hard work of the run chase, losing seven wickets to only just grab a victory. All-rounder Stewart Rice stood tall for for New Norfolk, taking 4-10 off 10 overs and then top-scoring with 24. Josh Rowlands also bowled well, taking 2-24 off his 10 overs.

Gretna I suffered a shock loss to Derwent, going down by 142 runs. Chasing 210 for victory, Gretna was bowled out for 67 with Corey Ransley the only batsman to make double figures with 14. For the bowlers, Rhys Browning was the main wicket-taker with three.

Bushy Park went down to Runnymede by seven wickets. Nathan Grant and D. Colbeck both made 25 with the bat and Colbeck also took two wickets.

In the Fourth Grade, Gretna II had a great win over second-placed DOSA at Gretna. In his 200th match for Gretna, Bruce Emery top-scored with 66 while Joey Eyles made 55. Peter Jelkic (five wickets) and Matthew Eyles (three) did the damage with the ball. No other details were available of the match at the tome of writing.

In the battle for fifth spot in Fifth Grade, Moleswoth II was defeated by McRobies Gully by three wickets. Molesworth made the very good score of 276 only to be over-run in what must have been a great match. Piuselli 47 and Chaplin 41 were the top run-scorers while captain Brayden Hodge tried hard with the ball and took four wickets.
