32 Wednesday November 15 2017 Latest Christchurch news at Weedons move up country cricket table WEEDONS MOVED into the top four of the premier one-day country cricket competition with a win over Lincoln at the weekend, while Leeston Southbridge also took victory to remain unbeaten after six rounds. Lincoln struggled batting first for the second week running at Lincoln Domain, this time against Weedons, which went on to win the match by two wickets. Jeremy Benton played well for 46 off 92 balls, and Dave McClelland chipped in with 25, but there were no other substantial contributions and Lincoln were all out for 126 in the penultimate over. Opener James Richards anchored the Weedons chase with 38 off 100 balls. But when Richards was removed by Arthur Paterson in the 35th over, they still needed 23 runs to win, with four wickets in hand. Batting at No 8, Tom Suyker came in to strike some lofty balls and carry Weedons over the line for a two wicket win. Leeston-Southbridge maintained their unbeaten record this season after clinically dispatching defending champions Sefton. Leeston-Southbridge won the toss at Sefton Domain and opted to bowl on what was described as a ‘tennis ball bouncy’, uneven and slow pitch. The outfield was also long, making it a good day to be a bowler. Sefton started well with consistent opening pair Lance Taylor and Tim Harrison putting on 83 runs before Tim Field made the first breakthrough by removing Harrison for 27. The home side then lost wickets at regular intervals, with Taylor top-scoring with 53, as they struggled to be all out for 132 in the 45th over. Field ended with the tidy figures of 3-25 and all-rounder Liam O’Sullivan bowled well to also be rewarded with three wickets. In reply, Leeston- Southbridge lost their openers early. Batting at No 3, ex-Dutch international Tim Gruijters compiled a good partnership with former Canterbury hockey representative Matt Ling to get their side through to the total in the 41st over. Darfield-South Malvern picked up their first win of the season at Darfield Domain over Oxford- Rangiora. The visitors made 174 all out after being 109/2 before David Beatty struck twice in the space of three deliveries to force a collapse in the Oxford-Rangiora innings. Darfield-South Malvern batted well in reply to secure their first win, with all of their top-order firing. Sean Carston and Simon Edwards both finished unbeaten as they steered their team home for a comfortable eight-wicket win. Meanwhile, Cheviot continued its enjoyable return to the premiership after destroying BIG SHOUT: Lochie Stove traps Lincoln batsman Matt Benton. SPORTS SELWYN TIMES Southbrook.
