Lansdowne win with one run to spare

Lansdowne made it two from two in Wairarapa Cricket’s Umpire’s Cup limited overs competition on Saturday

but they had virtually nothing to spare from Rathkeale College, just the one run separating the two teams.

Batting first, Lansdowne got through to a respectable 175 with the Prices, Brock and Dylan, both making 32. Of the two Brock Price was the more aggressive, his runs coming from just 22 balls and including two fours and three sixes, while Dylan Price faced 60 balls and struck two fours.

Rathkeale College would have rued some inaccurate bowling in their post-match deliberations. The highest scorer in the Lansdowne innings was, in fact, “Mr Extras” with 45, all but 10 of those runs coming from wides. Quinn Childs picked up 2-27 from his 10 overs and Jake McIntyre 3-23 from 6.5 overs.

Wairarapa representative Kelsey Fahey was the mainstay of the Rathkeale College innings which ended so tantalisingly close to their target. His 48 came off 80 balls and included five fours. Fahey’s partnership with Jack Forrester for the fourth wicket was worth 74 runs with Forrester making his 34 from 65 balls.He hit two fours.

The most successful of the Lansdowne bowlers were Drew MacDonald and Stefan Hook-Sporry who both finished with 3-36 from their 10 overs.

 

Short scoreboard:-

 

LANSDOWNE 175 (J.MacDonald 17, Dingle 17, B.Price 32, Buchanan 3, D.Price 32, Dennes-Wilson 13, Patel 4, D.MacDonald 3, Hook-Sporry 0, Barrett 8, Fricker 1 not out, extras 45; fall of wickets, 50, 80, 99, 103, 127, 136, 154, 154, 173, 175; Fahey 7-1-20-1, Sprowson 5-1-11-0, J.McKenzie 5-0-25-0, Hourigan 10-2-62-2, Childs 10-2-27-3, McIntyre 6.5-0-23-3) beat RATHKEALE COLLEGE 174 (A.Sprowson 6, E.Childs 2, Paton-Masters 12, Fahey 48, Forrester 34, Osborne 6, Q.Childs 20, McKenzie 7, S.Sprowson 1, Hourigan 0, McIntyre 10 not out, extras 28; fall of wickets, 14, 17, 41, 115, 125, 129, 141, 145, 145, 174; D.MacDonald 10-0-36-3, Barrett 10-2-28-0, Hook-Sporry 10-2-36-3; Patel 10-1-31-2, Buchanan 10-1-34-1) by one run.

 

To say the ball dominated the bat in the Red Star v Wairarapa College Umpire’s Cup fixture would be an understatement with 20 wickets falling for only 135 runs.

In the end it was Red Star who took the honours by 33 runs but they would have been anything but confident of victory after batting first and being all out for 84. Only two of their batsmen got into double figures with Zac Caldwell top scoring with 19. Bowling for Wairarapa College Frank Dickson claimed 4-10 off 10 overs and Brad Griffith 3-33 off 6.5 overs.

Wairarapa College were in early strife at 12-3 and never recovered, being dismissed for a paltry 51. They too had just the two batsmen reach double figures and Michael Brewster’s 18 was the standout effort for them. Jared Watt was the main destroyer for Red Star, taking 5-10 from his 9.3 overs while Tony Russo took 2-5 off his six overs.
