By Terry O'Neil on Tuesday, 19 December 2017

Albion set Union the task of scoring 244 runs in fifty overs, a task that Union coped with easily to pass the total with eight overs remaining and three wickets in hand. Albion, batting first made 244 before the final wicket fell at 244. There was some strong batting from Albion individuals with Dylan Winter making a strong 87 and he received solid support from Regan George(78) while bowling for Union Mason James claimed four for 44 and Phil Crossan chimed in with four for 63.

Tom Dempster(89) led the Union chase backed up by James(47), Dan Martin(23) and Glynn Cameron(22).Sam Fleming and Ricky Whyte took two wickets each for Albion.

Some fine batting backed up by some big hitting saw Valley make 244 for nine in its fifty overs against Oamaru at Weston Park. Francois Mostert(46) and Campbell Leckie(41) provided the solidity while Cameron Grubb(65) added the icing. Bowling for Oamaru Jordan Horrell took two for 27 and Matt Murphy, two for 52.

Oamaru was dismissed for 135 with Craig Smith(60) playing the anchor role while Grubb completed a fine double taking six for 30.
