Manders blasts highest score of season

Bailey’s Bay 323-7Tre Manders blasted the season’s highest individual score to guide Bailey’s Bay to an emphatic 194-run victory over PHC in a lopsided Logic 50-over affair at Sea Breeze Oval.

PHC 129 all out

Manders hammered 170 runs during his 128-ball innings that contained 14 sixes and as many fours.

The early order bat dominated two partnerships that put the match well beyond PHC’s reach, adding 113 runs for the second wicket with Sinclair Smith (44) and a further 135 with Terryn Fray (33) for the third.

Manders, who was dropped twice, achieved his century off exactly one hundred balls. He reached the milestone after dispatching off spinner Che Jennings to the midwicket fence for four.

PHC were costly in the field, leaking 34 extras that included 24 wides and eight no balls.

Kevin Showers (2-54) and Cal Waldron (2-67) were PHC’s most successful bowlers.

In reply to Bay’s massive target, PHC came up well short with Jelani Albouy (41 not out), Ellsworth Bean (32) and Kevin Dill (18) accounting for the bulk of the visitors’ runs before they were dismissed in the 32nd over.

At one stage PHC were 61-1 before losing their remaining wickets for the addition of 69 runs.

Manders capped a fine all-round display by taking 3-25 with his leg breaks from 9.4 overs that included three maidens while seamer Burton Outerbridge seized 3-25.

Southampton Rangers 324-6

Somerset Bridge 57 all out

Janeiro Tucker produced a fine all round display to inspire Southampton Rangers to an emphatic 258-run victory over Western Counties rivals Somerset Bridge at Southampton Oval.

The veteran all-rounder stroked a boundary filled half-century and then claimed three wickets as Rangers had things all their own way against Bridge who were forced to field first after showing up late for the coin toss and then penalised 30 runs for a slow over bowling rate.

Bridge opening bowling pair Noel Woods and Donnie Charles made the early breakthrough with the new ball to reduce Rangers to13 for 3 before Tucker and Derrick Brangman came to the rescue via a 134-run fourth wicket partnership. Tucker struck nine fours and three sixes in his top knock of 73 from 62 deliveries while Brangman gathered six fours in his knock of 58 from 52 balls.

Rangers also received solid support lower down the order with Kwame Tucker (58) and Ian Armstrong (42) adding 76 for the sixth wicket.

Charles was Bridge’s best bowler with figures of two for 16 while Woods took two for 34.

Bridge’s target was revised to 315 after ten overs were lost to rain.

But any thoughts the visitors might have had of an upstaging their hosts were ruthlessly crushed as they folded in just 24.4 overs.

Rangers skipper Dion Stovell (4-3) and all-rounder Tucker (3-24) inflicted the heaviest damage with the ball. Left -arm spinner Brangman (2-11) and seamer Kevin Tucker (2-14) took two wickets apiece.

Opening bat Ezekiel Greenwood (23) was the only Bridge batsman in double figures.

St David’s made a sluggish start to their run chase, losing their first three wickets for 42 runs before a 65-run fourth wicket stand between Rudell Pitcher and skipper OJ Pitcher put the visitors back on track.
