Derwent Valley and Highlands cricket results – Week 16


NEW NORFOLK – 1st grade 50-Over format: New Norfolk 10/245 (49.3 overs) was defeated by Wellington 7/251 (47.5 overs). Another home game at Tynwald on Saturday saw the Redcaps 1 team host top-of-the-ladder Wellington. The home team batted first and saw in-form batters in Jason Rigby (50) and Blake Kemmler (43) continue to make runs for the Redcaps but the loss of important wickets saw the team all out for 245 in the last over. Playing a strong Wellington team that had a deep batting line up, the Redcaps probably knew they didn’t have enough runs on the board but fielded well and, with Seb Wishart and Jeremy Nichols picking up two wickets each, they fought to the end with Wellington creeping over the line with two overs left. Batting: J. Rigby 50 from 54, B. Kemmler 43 from 69. Bowling: S. Wishart 2 for 41 from 8, J. Nichols 2 for 41 from 6.

3rd Grade 50-Over format: New Norfolk 9/230 (47 overs) defeated Wellington 9/229 (50 overs). The Redcap 2 team played Wellington at Eady Street Oval on Saturday. The home team batted first and posted 229 from its full 50 overs. In a tight battle, the Redcaps limped over the line with just one wicket to fall, with Mitchelmore hitting a four to secure the win for the Redcaps. Batting, Cody Neads is another who continues to notch up the runs with another knock over 50 in what was a quick run to 62 from just 36 balls. Jamie Maddox also continued to give the opposition team difficulties with the ball, taking another three handy poles this week. Batting: C. Neads 62 from 36, T. Blackwell 45 from 46. Bowling: J. Maddox 3 for 32 from 9, S. Rice 2 for 31 from 10.

6th Grade 40-Over format: New Norfolk 7/63 (16.4 overs) defeated St Virgil’s 10/62 (25.4 overs). The Redcap 3 team hosted St Virgil’s at Tynwald. After some losses to St Virgil’s in the earlier part of the year, the Redcaps were keen to prove the improvements they have put in place and that is exactly what this up-and-coming team did. Bowling first, the Redcaps had St Virgil’s on the ropes early, having their first batter back in the shed with just three runs on the scoreboard. Beau Kline and Logan Hunt took three wickets each and showed how consistent they are with the ball. In the chase, the Redcaps had the win in fewer than 17 overs, with Logan Hunt top-scoring with 27 and remaining unbeaten in the middle with brother Ronan when the winning runs were made. Logan has had a consistent year and it’s great to see him challenging himself further by having a couple of games on a turf pitch with the Redcaps’ partner club Glenorchy in their men’s Premier League 3rd Grade team. Batting: L. Hunt 27 from 37 (not out), C. Kemmler 17 from 16. Bowling: B. Kline 3 for 15 from 4.3, L. Hunt 3 for 23 from 5.

After a couple of good wins since the roster was split back into a fairer division’s competition, the Redcaps were keen to keep up the winning momentum. Montagu Bay batted first and put on a large total of 157 with only one wicket falling. In the chase, the Redcaps batted their full 20 overs but found themselves short on runs. Vanessa Fletcher top-scored with 32 from 55, finishing not out. Mackenzie George picked up the Redcaps’ only wicket. Batting: V. Fletcher 32 from 55, A. Green 11 from 10. Bowling: M. George 1 for 19 from 2.

MOLESWORTH – 2nd grade 50-over format: Molesworth 10/208 (44.2 overs) was defeated by Old Beach 3/211 (29 overs). Molesworth 1 was away again, this time at Cloak Oval to take on Old Beach. Batting first, Molesworth was all out in the 45th over for 208. Daniel Coppleman tried to kick-start the Molesworth innings with a quick-fire 85. With the ball, the Molesworth players struggled to stem the home team’s ability to score freely and saw Old Beach reach the winning runs in fewer than 30 overs. Coppleman also picked up a wicket with Josh Ransley taking the other two wickets. Batting: D. Coppleman 85 from 42, B. Hodge 44 from 97. Bowling: J. Ransley 2 for 29 from 10, D. Coppleman 1 for 64 from 8.

6th Grade 40-Over format: Molesworth 8/89 (22.2 overs) was defeated by Montagu Bay 5/90 (21.3 overs). Molesworth 2 team had a home game at Boyer Oval today (Sunday), taking on Montagu Bay. A couple of players short and batting first, Molesworth really struggled and was all out for just 89. Chris Sinclair was the only batter to make it into double figures, scoring 31.

Gretna 1 had a home game, welcoming St Ann’s to the War Memorial Recreation Ground on Saturday for the Gretna Cricket Club’s annual “pink stumps day”. Gretna batted first, with a couple of players just falling short of celebratory scores. Bradley Wallis was trapped in front of the stumps on 48 and Corey Ransley had the stumps rattled behind him when he was on 99. Even though Gretna was all out, it still placed a defendable target of 258 on the board. With the ball, Gretna’s bowlers and fielders worked well together to limit the scoring of St Ann’s and to take all their wickets, leaving Gretna as 54-run winnners at the end of the game. Spinner Craig Cunningham nailed four wickets with Ransley topping-off his batting tally with two poles. Batting: C. Ransley 99 from 59, B. Wallis 48 from 54. Bowling: C. Cunningham 4 for 54 from 10, J. Duggan 2 for 16 from 3.

Whitford 4 for 23 from 7.2, A. Browning 3 for 29 from 6.

BOTHWELL – 3rd Grade 50-Over format: Bothwell 7/315 (50 overs) defeated Derwent 10/143 (36.1 overs). Bothwell 1 was at Clarendon Vale Oval Saturday taking on Derwent. After a couple of weeks of losses, the Bucks were keen to get their season back on track and they didn’t disappoint. It seems as if the bowling machine batting practice held through the week worked with the Bucks smashing a total of 315. Brock Nichols had a season-best score of 106 getting to raise the bat as he passed both 50 and the 100 milestones. With the ball and after a nice 40 with the bat as well, Blake Mayne took his second consecutive 5fa with the ball which included the rare feat of taking a hat-trick. After last week getting piped at the post for the news VIP player of the round Mayne has put himself out there as a front runner again this week. Spinner Matty Isles took four wickets. The Bucks ran away as massive 172-run winners. Batting: B. Nichols 106 from 127, J. Devine 70 from 97. Bowling: B. Mayne 5 for 28 from 8 (including a hat-trick), M. Eyles 4 for 24 from 6.1.

7th Grade 40-Over format: Bothwell 6/257 (40 overs) defeated Sandford 10/43 (13.4 overs). Bothwell had a Sunday game down at Sandford and – as with the Bucks 1 team – the batting practice through the week seems to have paid off. The Bucks batted first and completed their full 40 over allotment at 6 out for 257. Andrew Rolls was unlucky to run out of overs to be left so close to his first 100 being still at the crease on 97 not out. With the ball the Bucks had the home team on the ropes early and had them at one point 6 out for just 30 runs. Sandford only managed another 13 runs with their last 4 wickets being all out for just 43. Joey Eyles tried to knock off Blake Mayne for the News VIP player of the round taking his own 5fa in an impressive display of bowling and fielding from the Bucks outfit. Batting: A. Rolls 97 from 103 (not out), T. Branch 63 from 84. Bowling: J. Eyles 5 for 18 from 7. M. Glover 3 for 19 from 4.
