Big scores the order of day in Singleton District Cricket Association round

AN outstanding partnership between Jackson and Brad Cox was instrumental in PCH’s big 82-run victory over JPC in the Singleton District Cricket Association at the weekend.

With the team in early trouble at Howe Park, Jackson joined Brad in the middle – and the pair put on 199 for the second wicket.

Jackson was first to fall on 130, which included two sixes and 15 boundaries, while Brad made a well-compiled 86.

A late knock from Jake Daniels (16) enabled PCH to post a competitive 5-255.

Corey Martin picked up 2-36 and Brad Young snared 2-52.

JPC began its chase strongly with 59 for the opening stand, thanks to Daniel Thrift (33) and Andrew Knox (26).

But, the innings fell away in the middle, with the side losing 7-22.

Nic Stokes remained unbeaten on 64 with JPC faltering on 173.

Daniels captured 4-40 with the ball and was well-supported by Daniel Oldknow, who collected 3-10.

Big scores were the order of the day at Cook Park 3 when Valley went into battle with Glendon.

Opening pair Jacob Carey and Nathan Bagnall launched an incredible assault on the Glendon bowlers, smashing half a dozen sixes and 16 boundaries on their way to a 163-run collaboration.

However, the rot didn’t end there.

Despite Bagnall (81) and Carey (68) departing within overs of each other, Valley continued on its merry way.

With Mal Davis anchoring the innings in the latter stages, Troy Barnett (14), Daniel Storey (10), Ian Hipwell (12), Tony Whiting (28) and Sam Barry (15 not out) also reached double figures.

As for Davis himself, he chipped in with a more-than-handy 75, as the team compiled 9-328.

Clinton Tull was the pick of the bowlers, remaining relatively unscathed with 3-61, while Darren Allum and Jackson Lambkin claimed 2-43 and 2-63 respectively.

Glendon managed to show a bit of resistance through the likes of Drew Nelson, Daniel Higgins and Anthony Bailey.

But, it wasn’t enough as the side could only manage 163 – a deficit of 165.

Nelson produced 50, with Higgins and Bailey each contributing 35 and 20.

Whiting backed up his batting cameo with 3-25.

Dylan Hayes returned the tidy figures of 3-28.
