Souths triumph

AN innings of 65 by Ryan Oliver laid the foundation for a Souths win in the Lismore District M and T Tyres one-day cricket final on Sunday.

Oliver was the only player to pass 40 in the day/night match against Workers at Oakes Oval – and it proved the difference as Souths won by only nine runs.

Aiden Cowin (35) and Ben Rose (20) also played their part with the bat, while for Workers young off-spinner Ben Nurse took 3-41.

Workers’ chase was led by Jordan Smith (35) and Daniel Clark (24), with Craig Bateman the pick of the Souths bowlers with 3-22.

A highlight of the night was two brilliant catches by Cowin. The first was at mid-on where he had to turn and chase a high mis-hit, throwing up a left hand and getting it to stick.

The other catch was at square-leg to remove dangerous veteran Bruce Jobson. Cowin dived to the left and held it centimetres off the ground.

A heavy shower delayed play early but the weather cleared.

Southern Districts 158 (R Oliver 65, A Cowin 35, B Rose 20, C Latimer 14; B Nurse 3-41, D Lovett 2-11, B Jobson 2-17, G Hallman 2-35) d Lismore Workers 149 (J Smith 35, D Clark 24, G Hallman 18 not out, S Condon 17, M Hughes 15; C Bateman 3-22, S Gough 2-24, J Deal 2-33).
