Something clicked for Lennox skipper

LENNOX Head captain Andrew Linsday scored 147 not out in a batting master class against Pottsville in Far North Coast LJ Hooker League cricket on Saturday.

Lindsay never looked like getting out, hitting 19 fours and four sixes, before the Pirates declared at 3-330 in reply to Pottsville's 226 at Megan Crescent, Lennox Head.

"I've felt good (this season) but just haven't been able to score runs,” Lindsay said.

"Something just clicked out there. I thought it would only be a matter of time; I just needed a bit of luck.

"Anything past the outfield went for four and I was able to hit them off the middle.”

Lindsay and opening partner Angus Callan combined in a 179-run partnership before Callan was bowled for 88.

Teenager Ben Moyle kept the scoreboard ticking over with his first half century in the top grade.

Pottsville showed some resistance in the second innings, finishing 2-77 when the game was called off after 19 overs.

Opening batsman Jamie Bennett scored 45 not out.

"What had to have a crack at taking all the points but it wasn't to be,” Lindsay said.

"I guess we're going for an undefeated season now and everyone has to chase us.”

Meanwhile, the Casino Cavaliers had a seven-wicket win over Marist Brothers at Queen Elizabeth Park, Casino.

The Cavaliers resumed on 0-15 chasing just 187 withopener Matt Bradshaw setting the tone early by scoring 72.

Englishman Luke McCabe showed his value with 73 not out and the Cavs finished on 3-189 after 52 overs.

Elsewhere, Cudgen (88 and 2-142) claimed outright points after bowling out Tintenbar-East Ballina (104 and 124) at Reg Dalton Oval, Kingscliff.

Tintenbar was rolled for 124 with Cudgen all-arounder Caleb Ziebell taking four wickets.

He top-scored with 57 after opening the batting in the second innings and Alec Williams made 43 not out as Cudgen hunted down the target.

And Ballina Bears bowled Murwillumbah out in a 133-run win at Fripp Oval, Ballina.

It was always going to be tough for Murwillumbah chasing 296 with Will Chapples top-scoring with 43.

Bears captain Luke Hall and off-spinner Ravi Singh took three wickets each.

Unstoppable Ziebell

NSW Country rep Caleb Ziebell scored 161 to lead Cudgen to a second straight LJ Hooker League T20 final at Reg Dalton Oval, Kingscliff, yesterday.

They beat Marist Brothers in the semi-final by 91 runs while Ballina Bears downed Tintenbar-East Ballina by 20 runs in the other semi-final.
