Finley’s Division Two cricket side had a comprehensive home win over a very determined Katamatite on Saturday.
The Cats once again lost the toss and took to the field.
The dangerous Angus MacFayden (8) smashed two boundaries off the first two balls but the third delivery was played on to his stumps, much to the relief of bowler Anthony King (1-26) and the rest of his team.
A disastrous run out for the Tigers saw Erickson (4) out next over and it looked as though the Cats were going to dominate the match.
Thirteen year-old Joshua MacFayden produced a defiant knock, however. With superb technique and a disciplined attitude the young Tiger combined with Stephen Rowlands (47 n.o.) to give the visitors a good chance.
MacFayden hit five glorious fours in his knock and Rowlands three as the pair closed in on the end of the innings. MacFayden was eventually bowled by Andrew Taylor (1-17) late in the innings and the Tigers closed 40 overs on 3/122.
Looking to get off to a flying start, Finley sent Anthony King (47) to the crease.
Along with Tom Isedale (7) the pair made a great start adding 28 for the first wicket.
Isedale was out LBW soon after which brought Taylor to the crease.
The quality bat then began to destroy the Katamatite bowling attack as he sent the field sprawling.
Together with King the pair made light work of the target and ensured a two bonus-point win.
Taylor hit 64 runs off just 38 balls.
Incredibly 19 of those 38 were dot balls. The other 19 deliveries included seven boundaries and four sixes.
King walloped six boundaries in his knock before his stumps were rattled by Turvey (1-26) with the score 109.
Taylor however wrapped up the match soon after with the win coming inside 16 overs.
