Brand, MacGregor fire for Wamuran
WAMURAN-STANLEY River had success in Division 4 and Division 6 cricket last Saturday, with the Division 4 team playing at Noosa District Sports Complex while the Division 6 contest was at Wamuran Sports Reserve.
The Division 7 contest involving Wamuran-Stanley River and host team Landsborough was washed out without a ball bowled.
Division 4 compiles defendable total
After being sent in to bat, visiting team Wamuran-Stanley River was 2/19 before opener Tony Runge’s 54 sparked a recovery.
Middle order knocks from James Brand (41) and Addam Nicholson (31) were also vital as the visitors made 7/166 in their allotted 34 overs.
In reply, Tewantin-Noosa’s scoring rate was too slow despite 16 runs coming from one over.
The hosts managed only 95 runs for the loss of seven wickets despite receiving 27 runs in illegal bowling.
Brand completed a fine all-round performance with 2/9 from six overs while Bradley Teske (3/27 from eight overs) and Joshua Burton (2/13 from eight overs) also had fine figures.
John Nugent went wicketless but he conceded only 20 runs in his eight overs.
Both teams top 200 on Wamuran soil
Caloundra chose to bowl first after winning the toss in Division 6, and the decision backfired as host team Wamuran-Stanley River amassed 7/269 in 40 overs.
Jacob MacGregor hit nine sixes and six fours in his 84 while Kaidan Jarrett (49), Brett Hines (38) and Aaron Phillips (36) also hit plenty of boundaries.
The visitors fell to 4/59 before Paul Gordon blasted 74, including nine fours and three sixes.
Caloundra never threatened to reach the target, and finished at 7/201.
MacGregor had an outstanding game as he took 3/31 while Phillips (2/22) and Jarrett (1/22) also backed up their batting with decent bowling.
