Wairarapa Mitsubishi Greytown and Red Star had comfortable wins in Saturday’s round of matches in the Umpires Cup 40-over competition.

Greytown medium-pacer Jonny Maloney picked up five wickets for 22 runs and Byron Hegglin 3-18 as Carterton were held to 94 on the Kuranui College artificial pitch.

Greytown were rarely tested and cruised to a six-wicket victory in the 29th over. Veteran opener Alastair ‘Tora’ Boyne carried his bat, finishing 26 not out, while Ricky Dey chipped in with 29.

Nathan Chaney top-scored for Red Star, with 30, in their total of 165 on the Memorial Park artificial pitch.

In reply, Marist failed to get on top of the accurate Red Star bowling and struggled through to 101 all out off 30.3 overs.

Medium pacers Yogesh Sharma and Swapnil Patel each took three wickets for the victors.

Defending champions Rathkeale will host Greytown on Saturday in a repeat of last year’s final, and Carterton are at home to Marist in third-round matches.

In college competition, Sam Paterson played brilliantly to lead Kapiti College to a 79-run win over Wairarapa College in a Wellington secondary schools’ premier two match at Waicol on Saturday.

Paterson scored a superb 102 [90 balls, including five fours and nine sixes] in Kapiti’s total of 311-6 off their 50 overs.

Paterson had good support from Daniel Browne [59] in a third-wicket partnership of 89, and from Sam Preston [21] to score 92 runs for the fourth wicket.

The best of the Waicol bowlers was the promising Samuel Payne, who took 2-33 off 10 economical overs.

Paterson then starred with the ball grabbing 5-41, including bowling star batsman Mark Steventon for 24, as Waicol stumbled to 232 all out.

The loss was Waicol’s first in the term four championship, dropping them to second place, two points behind Tawa College. Waicol host Hutt International Boys 2nd XI on Saturday.
