Cricket returns from Christmas break

SOUTHERN CRICKET ASSOCIATION
Derwent Valley matches
Round 11

NEW Norfolk I made it three wins on the trot by defeating Old Beach by 70 runs in first grade at the weekend. Veteran Adrian Eiszele continues to show you get better with age, hitting up his third successive half-century making 56. Josh Rowlands did very well with the ball taking 4-28 and Graeme "Snowy" Rowlands took 2-22 in his first match of the season.

Brad Coppleman has been in terrific form every week and once again got amongst the runs, making 94. Despite narrowly missing out on his third century of the season in Molesworth's second grade loss to Old Beach, Coppleman has now hit up 518 runs in his 10 innings so far, for an excellent average of 51.8.

After a big loss in round 10, Gretna I turned full circle to thrash Wellington by 152 runs. Leading the way were captain  Ben Rainbird and Mathew Burns who made 42 each.  It was an excellent effort from the bowlers, knocking over Wellington for just 77. Azza Maddox was the best of the bowlers with 3-27 from 8 overs.

Brock Nichols.
In third grade Bushy Park gave ladder leaders DOSA a cricket lesson, winning easily by seven wickets. All-rounder Mitch Crosswell smashed a quickfire 74 as Bushy Park reached the target of 163 off just 124 balls. Troy Smith was the best of the bowlers taking 3-21.

In the other third grade match, Gretna II went down to St Virgils by 60 runs. This didn't stop Brock Nichols who put in a good performance with the ball, taking 5-62 off 10 overs, Jackson Ackerly made a welcome return to form with the bat with a well made 50.

In fourth grade, New Norfolk up-and-comer Nathan Rice continues to show the older players how its done, taking a bag of wickets of 4-47 from 10 overs against the Knights. Rice also made 16 with the bat. Nice work.

In fifth grade, Molesworth II had a good win over St Annes by five wickets. Brett Hodge led the way with the bat with a good 53 not out. Jacksyn Mann was elevated to the captaincy and showed great leadership making 30 not out and taking 3-22 with the ball. Not a bad effort considering he has only just finished high school.
