Mitch's men of the match

Al Nowlan, Casino RSM Cavaliers

THREE wickets in one over for Nowlan as he ripped through the Lennox Head middle order and ensured Casino had plenty of overs to bat in the afternoon.

The former captain has been playing longer than anyone else in the LJ Hooker League and has taken over 200 wickets since the competition started in 1994-95.

A quick-fire 31 from top-order batsman Sam Irvine helped the Cavaliers claim first innings points.

Justin Moore, Ballina Bears

THE captain was all class against Alstonville and needed to be when he came to the crease with Bears battling at 3-17 early.

He steadied the ship with a controlled innings and reached the 80s for the third time this season.

All-rounder Ben Carruthers made the most of his opportunity scoring 63 runs after he should have been caught first ball in the slips.

Terry Murphy, Alstonville

RETURNED to form with a seven wicket haul against Ballina and proved he is one of the best bowlers in the competition on his day.

Bears top-order batsmen Lee Barnett, Toby Hordern and Nick Watson were all caught behind when Murphy claimed a wicket in each of his first three overs.

Scott Wright did a solid job filling in at opening bowler in the absence of left arm quick Jason Caught.

Greg Brennan, Pottsville

A DETERMINED 42 not out in the middle order from Brennan got Pottsville to 127 against Marist Brothers after they were in all sorts of trouble at 7-75. All-rounder Ryan McLoy fared the best of the bowlers taking 2-30 from his 13 overs and will be the key man if they are to bowl Brothers out.

Terry Wilson, Cudgen

BOWLING fewer overs this season and top scored with the bat against Tintenbar-East Ballina.

Cudgen has the best bowling attack in the competition with eight of its players rolling the arm over at the weekend.

Wilson only bowled three overs but took two wickets and finished 47 not out with the bat.
