20 Wednesday February 14 2018 Latest Christchurch news at SELWYN TIMES Watson bowls Weedons to win WEEDONS have kept themselves in title contention thanks to a mesmerising display of right-arm pace bowling from Josh Watson which helped them roll a young Lincoln side on Saturday. Watson was the star of the show at Weedons Domain, claiming 6/10 from just 3.5 overs, as Lincoln were bowled out for just 78. He then chipped in with the bat, finishing 19 not out to secure his side the six-wicket victory. The win moves Weedons within touching distance of competition leaders Leeston-Southbridge which lost to defending champions Sefton. With representative commitments and what was described as “an ill-timed wedding”, Sefton fielded a team with an average age in the golden oldies range, including club stalwarts Nick Proudfoot and Blair Walker. Leeston-Southbridge were rolled at home for just 90, which the visitors would reach with ease. Other results saw Southbrook win the one-day shield from the talented young Cheviot side. At Cheviot Domain, the home side batted well to compile 221, with Scott Burnett top-scoring on 58.
