A 189-run loss to Kapiti Old Boys at Queen Elizabeth Park in Masterton on Saturday means Red Star are now the only team without a win in the Coastal Challenge Cup 50-over competition.

The two teams were both winless ahead of Saturday’s clash, but Kapiti were able to celebrate after producing a dominant performance.

After winning the toss and electing to bat, they made 291-9 from their 50 overs on the back of 133 from Jayden Miles.

Red Star made early inroads to have the visitors in trouble at 15-2, but Miles held the innings together and carried his team through to a daunting target.

When Miles was finally dismissed by Jeremy Osborne, the score was 255-7 and the damage had been done.

Miles hit 11 boundaries and seven sixes in a remarkable display of power-hitting.

The efforts of Kapiti’s middle order proved crucial in the end, with Patrick McNabb [39 off 59 deliveries] and Carter Andrews [25 off 24] playing excellent support roles alongside Miles’ destructive innings.

Osborne finished with 3-63 from nine overs for Red Star, while Patrick Wootton claimed 4-55 off his nine.

Red Star were never in the hunt in their reply, with regular wickets having them slump to 31-3 and then 44-5.

Osborne top scored with 25 off 36 deliveries, while the others to reach double figures were Zac Caldwell [21 off 26], Dion Knight [11 off 24] and Anthony Sprowson [11 off 15].

It was never going to be easy chasing a total close to 300, but with only four batsmen reaching double figures it becomes nearly impossible.

Tom Harris did most of the damage for Kapiti, taking 4-10 from just 3.2 overs, while Zack Benton chipped in with 3-21 from eight overs.

Wairarapa’s other team in the Coastal Challenge Cup, United, were also well beaten on Saturday.

Wanganui United batted first in that match and made 294, while United could only muster 160 in reply.

Charles Morrison top scored for United with 40, while Reece Hannam made 29.

Sanjay Patel was the best bowler for United, taking 2-50.

This weekend, both Wairarapa teams will be on the road, with Red Star taking on Marist at Tasman Tanning Park, and United going up against Paraparaumu Cricket Club at Kena Kena Park.

Kapiti Old Boys 291-9 [Jayden Miles 133; P Wootton 4-55] beat Red Star 102 all out [J Osborne 25; T Harris 4-10] by 189 runs.

Wanganui United 294 [scores unavailable] beat United 160 [Charles Morrison 40] by 134 runs.
