Saints impress with run feast

The Trentham District Cricket Club enjoyed a great day of cricket on Saturday with all three senior sides recording big scores in a prolific run feast. The Saints Firsts led the way in A-Reserve amassing a huge total of 7 for 342 against Harcourt on the first day’s play which included a fine century by skipper Harley Forgo. In B Grade, the Seconds finished with an impressive 8 for 241 at Trentham against Elphinstone and, in B-Reserve, the Colts continued their great form by scoring 7 for 181 to defeat top side Barkers Creek in a one-day game.

The Firsts looked to be in trouble at 4 for 85 with key batsmen Chris Adams (31) and Chris Boyer (0) back in the shed. However, a brilliant partnership of 182 runs between opening batsman, Sam Bruton, and skipper, Harley Forgo, took the score to 267 before the dismissal of Forgofor a superb knock of 107. Brutonwas dismissed about 30 runs later for a terrific 91 continuing his excellent form. Dolf Reid (38) and James Fearn (22 not out) also batted well to capitalise on the great work of Harley and Sam. The boys will be looking for a strong performance in the field next week to regain their momentum going into the finals.

John McKenry laid the foundation for the Seconds in B Grade with a very well-made 84 runs which featured shots all around the ground. He was greatly supported by Jake Sartori with a typically attacking 63. Several other useful contributions saw the Saints reach a challenging total of 241.

In B-Reserve, the Colts faced top side Barkers Creek at Glenlyon Reserve. Fielding two players short, the Colts produced a very creditable team performance with the ball in keeping the strong Barkers Creek side to 173 runs. Wickets were shared around with two wickets apiece to Ned Johns, Dan Lendrec, Mitch Steen and Bryce Coffey. Despite losing a couple of key early wickets, the Colts passed the target with 4 overs to spare to record their most impressive win this season. Bryce Coffey led the way, holding the innings together and finishing with an excellent 51 not out. He was given fine support by skipper Dan Lendrec and Hayden Sundblom.
