IN Tier 1 of the T20 Super Bash last week, New Norfolk went down to reining premiers Wellington by 57 runs. Stewart Rice top-scored for the Red Caps with 21 while recruit Kendall Bluett picked up three wickets from his four overs.
In Tier 2 it was a much different result for Molesworth which continued on its merry way with a close three-run victory over McRobies Gully. Molesworth had first bash, making 118 with Jacksyn Mann stepping up to the captaincy and batting well for almost the full innings to make 29. Jack Evans hit up 21 and Dakoda Smith made 16.
In reply McRobies went very close to victory but just couldn't get there due to some good performances from the Molesworth bowlers who kept their cool. Josh Ransley and Aaron Triffitt did well with two wickets each.
