Southern Spirit declares at start of second day

Southern Spirit Cricket Club's First Grade team declared at the start of day two in round eight of competition.

"We set Northern Power a chase of 214," said captain Ross Watson.

"Despite the heat and a fairly flat deck for batting, the boys created some early chances without much luck.

"At 0/80, Mitch Wright got the ball and started with a bang, breaking through with a cracker of a ball to bowl an opener."

Daniel Friend then came on and bowled the other opening batsman.

"We continued to create some good LBW shouts."

Despite a lack of consistent wickets, Jaylen Johnston bowled 17 straight overs, bagging three wickets in the process.

The Power passed Southern Spirit at five wickets down and batted on to get to 250 runs.

In round 16 of sixth grade, Southern Spirit played a last wicket partnership of 50 runs by M Channon and B White for a 144 total to defend against Wyong.

J Channon (54) and M Channon (35 not out) were the best batsmen.

With only 10 men, Southern Spirt fought hard to win by 20 runs.

Good bowling and fielding was shown all-round, with M Bull bowling 1/7 off eight overs and L Duggan 3/12 off seven overs.

In seventh grade, Southern Spirit lost the toss again and Wyong chose to bat.

After 40 overs, Wyong was 7/169, with Ian Tomlinson taking 3/21 off seven overs, Paul Sharpe 2/22 off five overs and Don Quitadamo 1/19 off six overs.

Under-12 player Jaxon Markham took his first senior wicket with 1/14 off four overs.

In reply, Southern Spirit could only manage 5/111 to lose by 58 runs.

Best batsmen were Under-14 player Austen Cattley scoring 30 runs, Paul Sharpe 24 not out and Paul Broad 23.
