SELWYN TIMES Tuesday December 20 2016 11 Leeston-Southbridge fall in final • By Gordon Findlater LEESTON-Southbridge have gone down by four wickets to Sefton in the Canterbury country premier one-day final at Rangiora’s Mainpower Oval. The Selwyn team’s total of 155 was never going to be enough, with the top order batsmen failing to convert on starts. Sefton chased down the total in about 43 overs to claim backto-back titles. Batting first, Leeston-Southbridge got off to a steady start through openers Toby Doyle (20) and Ben Chamberlain (17). When Doyle departed in the 12th over, Chamberlain was joined by brother Harry who hit a quick fire 15 before being out lbw to Sefton’s Ollie Bragg. At 61/3 in the 20th over, Chris Beatson came to the crease and looked to steer the side to a decent total. Beatson and Matt Ling put on a 55-run fourth • By Karolyn Boon wicket partnership, which was broken in the 35th over when Ling fell for 24. Beatson top scored with 37 and, when he fell in the 41st over, it didn’t take long for Sefton to clean up the tail as Leeston-Southbridge were bowled out for 155 in the 44th over. Sefton got off to a great start in their run chase with the top three batsmen – Matthew Laffey (26), Tim Harrison (34) and Lance Taylor (36) – all chipping in with handy contributions. Leeston-Southbridge’s Tim Field gave his side a glimmer of hope in the 32nd over when he took three wickets in the space of just four deliveries to have Sefton at 113/4. The flurry of wickets wouldn’t be enough, though, as Sefton reached the total in the 44th over to claim a four-wicket win and their second straight premier one-day title. PAIRS CHAMPIONS Brian Chapman and Stu Boon teamed up with Mark Ridden on Sunday, as the Dunsandel bowlers added the Ellesmere Men’s Open triples’ trophy to their season accomplishments. It was the third time Chapman and Boon had won the competition since 2012, having played with Murray Chamberlain in the previous two wins. This time, the tournament was played at Southbridge on an excellent green with blustery conditions. Of the eight-team field, there were four qualifiers after four rounds – two from Lincoln and one each from Southbridge and FAILURE TO CONVERT: Opener Toby Doyle, like the rest of Leeston-Southbridge’s top order batsmen, failed to convert after a promising start. Weekend results •Premier one-day Leeston-Southbridge – 155/10 (43.3 overs) lost to Sefton – 159/6 (43.5 overs) Premier two-day Dunsandel. The winning trio’s only loss of the day was in the first round to defending champions Martin Rowson, Mundy Carroll and Michael Begg, of Lincoln. Rowson’s team beat the Southbridge team, skippered by Brain McCartin, in a close semi-final battle to secure a final spot. In the other semi-final, the Sefton – 194/9 and 175/6 drew with Oxford – 166/10 and 80/6 Lincoln – 296/6 and 208/2 defeated South Malvern – 251/9 and 97/10 Chapman, Boon, Ridden win Ellesmere Men’s Open Lincoln team, skippered by Lynton Withell, took Dunsandel to an extra end, but Dunsandel played themselves into the final. In the final, the game was very even until half way when Dunsandel picked up five. This gave Dunsandel something to build on and they managed to keep ahead, winning 12-8 after 13 ends. SPORTS Halswell victory leaves them top of two-day table HALSWELL REMAIN top of the two-day cricket table after comfortably dispatching Southern Districts in the second innings at Halswell Domain on Saturday. Having started their second innings 44 runs behind, Southern were immediately on the back foot at 26/3. A middle order revival got them to 110/4 before a devastating spell, in which bowlers Mike Chatterton and Leighton Johnston took four wickets for eight runs, put Halswell firmly back in the driver’s seat. A few big shots saw Southern through to 157 all out. The figures for Halswell’s bowlers were Johnston 4/58, Geoff Barclay 3/17 and Chatterton 3/47. Needing 110 for victory, Halswell’s batsmen looked comfortable chasing the runs down in 24 overs. Barclay scored 27, while Stevie Golding blasted an unbeaten 31 off 13 balls. Ankit Jassal, playing just his third senior game, batted well for 31 not out, and Halswell reached their target for the loss of seven wickets. There will be no time for Halswell to rest following the Christmas break, with the top three teams all very close on the points table.
