Cricketers break for Christmas

ROUND 10 of the Southern Cricket Association was played last weekend and the teams now have a break until the first weekend in January.

Molesworth openers Bradley Coppleman and Mark Reggett were unstoppable in the 2nd Grade match with Richmond/Cambridge at Richmond last Saturday. Coppleman 116 not out and Reggett 105no had the opposition scratching their heads for answers but Richmond/Cambridge was not to be denied and nearly turned the match on its head. With one wicket in hand and needing two runs for victory with three balls remaining, the home side was bowled out after Baxter Oliver used his quick thinking to run out the final batsman to give Molesworth a win to remember. Molesworth can also thank Nathan Eiszele for his efforts – he skittled the opposition batsmen by taking 6 for 44. Adding to the individual performances, captain and wicket keeper Nick Piuselli took five of the six catches.

In another exciting match in 2nd Grade, Gretna I pulled off a gutsy win against Runnymede at Gretna. Gretna I 9 for 274 off 48.1 overs defeated Runnymede 6 for 273 off 50 overs.

In the other 2nd Grade game, New Norfolk 7 for 224 off 50 overs defeated second-placed Rokeby Wanderers 9 for 182 off 44.1 overs at Tynwald Park.

In 4th Grade on Saturday, Bushy Park continued on its merry way, recording their sixth straight win over Gretna II at Bushy Park. Bushy Park 10 for 236 off 43.4 overs (batting first) defeated Gretna II 10 for 118 off 28 overs

In 5th Grade on Sunday, Old Beach  9 for 204 off 45.5 overs defeated Molesworth II 10 for 97 off 30.4 overs at Boyer Oval
