Cooma topples former KDCA powerhouse club Fire Brigade.December 12, 2012 4:35am
Cooma has scored one of its best wins in years, toppling former KDCA powerhouse club Fire Brigade when last Saturday’s round of A-grade games in Goulburn Murray Cricket were completed.
Defending a score of 2/233, the Cooma bowlers, led by Mitch Barrett, skittled the powerful Brigade batting line-up for 198 runs at Cooma to claim a 35 runs first innings win.
Apart from opener Trevor Watt, removed for a duck by Barrett, The Flames’ top order batsmen all got a start, but a matchwinning knock was missing, leaving the Brigade with its second loss for the season in its new competition.
Paul Newman (23), David Newman (37), Danny Kent (35) and Michael Kent with an innings high score of 42 all made valuable contributions to the Brigade total.
Four other batsmen got into double figures, including a ninth wicket stand of 31 between Scott Hearn and Jarrod Chapman which threatened to deprive Cooma of the win.
But the eager Cooma attack led by Barrett, who claimed three wickets, and other dual wicket takers in teenager Zac Cerrone and spinner Hamish Roberts rallied to bring off the upset victory.
South didn’t lose its first wicket until it had 50 runs on the board and at 2/97 looked well placed to make a serious attempt to rein in the Stanhope’s very competitive score.
But once hard-hitting opener Neil Geltch was out for 58 and Mitch McMullen for 40, the South innings crumbled as spinner Alec Young and Brad Lowe backed by opening bowler Zac Dearing all claimed three scalps to claim the season’s first win for their side.
With the bye this Saturday and a break until January 13 on the domestic scene, Stanhope’s focus now switches to a Twenty20 clash tomorrow (Thursday) evening against Moama.
After being skittled for 61 in its first innings, Tongala fared little better in its second innings, falling for just 61 after United had built it score of 5/169 from the previous week to 245 last Saturday on the back of fine knocks from opener Jake Perry (79) and skipper Dylan Cuttriss with 65.
Tongala left-arm spinner Darin Ohlsen picked 4/43 off 11.4 overs to keep in the forefront of the leading wicket takers in the competition this season while Dave Currie with 3/67 off 17 overs and Jordan Souter with 2/59 off 15 overs were other multiple wicket takers for Tongala.
Three wicket hauls to first innings bowling hero Colin Griggs for a match tally of nine wickets and three to Jake Perry was behind the Tongala second innings collapse.
Only middle order batsman Davie Currie with 19 and Travis Johnstone with 14, scored double figure scores in Tongala’s meek second innings surrender.
