34 Wednesday January 31 2018 Latest Christchurch news at SELWYN TIMES SPORTS PUSH: Alister Collins and Chris Warner turn for a quick second run. GONE: Leeston- Southbridge celebrate after taking Warner’s wicket. PUSH: Darfield-South Malvern’s James Ferris eyes up a full toss. PHOTOS: KAREN CASEY Darfield-South Malvern rattle Leeston-Southbridge DARFIELD-South Malvern handed country premier one-day competition leader Leeston- Southbridge their second loss of the summer on Saturday. The home side, Darfield-South Malvern, were bowled out for 174 inside their allotted 45 overs. Nick Jenkins batted well to top-score with 45, with handy contributions from Sean Carston, 21, and James Ferris, 20. Leeston-Southbridge’s Will McFarlane picked up three wickets, as did Toby Doyle who rolled his arm over after wicketkeeping for the first 35 overs. In reply, Jenkins and Patrick Reardon ripped through Leeston-Southbridge’s batting lineup. They went from being 37/3, to all out for a paltry 39, losing by 135 runs. Jenkins accomplished the rare feat of taking more wickets than runs conceded – the right-arm medium-quick finished with figures of 4/1. Meanwhile, as the pre- Christmas competition leader’s faltered, Cheviot continued their fine season back in the top flight competition. The Cheviot Magpies snuck past defending one-day champion, the Sefton Seals, in a thriller at Sefton Domain. On a difficult wicket, Sefton were rolled for just 113 in 42 overs, with only Lance Taylor making it to 20 off 68 balls. But the small total looked like it might have been enough when Cheviot were eight wickets down with 40 runs still required. But captain Harry Fitzpatrick then backed up his three wickets with the ball to make an important 34. Solid support came from Scott Burnett who hit the winning runs, with Cheviot nine wickets down. Sefton’s Matt Rowe produced career best figures with his first five-wicket haul in the losing cause. At Dudley Park, Oxford-Rangiora notched up 168/9 in their 45 overs against Weedons. Dave Fulton led the way with 27, but several other batsmen chipped in, as did some loose deliveries from the Weedons’ bowlers, who gifted 15 wides. Defending the average total, the home side’s bowlers dug in and chipped away at the powerful Weedons batting line-up. Rising stars Mitch Power and Josh Mariu knocked the top off the order, while veteran offspinner Mark Murphy cleaned up the tail as Oxford-Rangiora won by 26 runs. Meanwhile, Southbrook were no match for Lincoln at their home ground on Saturday. Batting first, the ‘Brook’ only made 72 after being reduced to 17/5. Lincoln chased the tiny total down with five wickets in hand. FIELDING: Jack Dawson makes a catch in the outfield. ACTION: Leeston-Southbridge’s Tim Field bowling to Darfield-South Malvern’s James Ferris FOCUSED: Andrew Inch looks to cut the ball fine.
