Ballarat club firsts cricket wrap


at Napoleons

CARMAN Mapatuna and Brendan Thomson were on fire as Napoleons-Sebastopol delivered Coronet City another devastating blow this afternoon.

Mapatuna took his season aggregate to 422 runs with a powerful knock of 110, which came off just 94 balls.

His heroics, as well as 51 from Liam Rigby, helped the hosts post 6-238 from 45 overs.

It was then Thomson's turn to have a bit of fun, with the quick tearing through the visitors to finish with 7-16 from nine overs.

This helped dismiss Coronet for just 35 after 20 overs and complete a simple victory.


at City Oval

HALF-CENTURIES from Gavin Webb and Health Pyke set up Wendouree's win over Ballarat-Redan.

Webb made 58 and Pyke 68 as the Red Caps reached 236 in the final over of their innings.

Ballarat-Redan never really looked like taking the points, with Jayden Hayes top-scoring with a half-century as the Two Swords were bowled out for 148.

Skipper David Ellis and fellow paceman Eamon Johnson both took three wickets each for the winners.

NORTH BALLARAT 91 lost to MT CLEAR 5-235

at Northern Oval

MT CLEAR collected a ninth-straight win with a comprehensive display against North Ballarat.

Batting first, Jarrod Burns made 94 and Les Sandwith 56 to lead the Mounties to 5-235 before quickly running through the home side.

The Roosters managed just 91 in reply, with spinner Steve Nicholson the best of the bowlers with 3-28.


at Darley Park

DARLEY continued its climb towards the top four with an important win over Golden Point.

The Lions made 3-226 thanks to 50 from Lachie Herring, 48 from Brad Roberts and an unbeaten 46 from skipper Matt Cape.

Brad Barnes then took 5-25 to help dismiss the Pointies well shy of the total, all out for 144.

EAST BALLARAT 111 lost to BROWN HILL 5-263

at East Secondary College

FORMER Victoria Country batsman Matt Hyden fired with an unbeaten century as Brown Hill easily disposed of East Ballarat.

Hyden dominated with the bat to make 128, and combined with 68 from all-rounder Ryan Knowles, the Bulls reached 5-263.

It was more than enough as the home side was rolled for 111, with Shane Harwood taking 4-12.
