First century of the season in Canecutters crushing win

CRICKET

A SUPERB century from Aaron Regan saw Canecutters cruise to victory against the Warriors at Kelsey Creek Sporting Complex on the weekend.

The Warriors posted a solid total of 175 with contributions from Bowen import Danny Borg (51 runs) and Warriors captain Bryce Fraser (37).

Some erratic bowling from Canecutters' bowlers added an extra 28 runs to the total due to wides.

David Vickers was expensive from his eight overs, but managed to take three wickets for 61 runs, while new player Andre Illemann chimed in with three for 22 from six overs.

Canecutters made short work of the 175 total, posting victory in just the 23rd over. Valleys captain Aaron Regan, who made two consecutive ducks in his last outings for Valleys, smashed Warriors bowlers to every corner of the park in his barnstorming 112 not out. His breathtaking innings was the first century posted in the 2012/13 cricket year.

Valleys will be hoping Regan can show the same form when playing for his preferred Valleys side.

Liam Davies helped out with a quick 30 runs, before being dismissed by Danny Borg (one for 16 from three overs).

Another Valleys player David Hobson (18 not out) joined Aaron at the crease and the two put on a 90 run partnership to help Canecutters to an easy victory.

There will be no assistance for Canecutters from Valleys players this Saturday as Valleys will take on Canecutters at the Kelsey Creek Sporting Complex from 12:30pm. Warriors receive the week off, but players are welcome to attend to help out with numbers. Any new or returning players are encouraged and can contact Craig Brown on 4945 1983 or Dale Mengel on 0410 895 191.
