ALLORA has won its second reserve grade premiership in Warwick cricket with a convincing eight-wicket win against Sovereign Animals at Mayhew Oval.

Everything went well for Allora from the first over when Kris McLennan dismissed Sovereign trump card Tony Munro.

Gordon Barker dug in like Ed Cowan tries to do in the Australian team to top score with 25 off 17 overs.

Ben Pillar made 16 and last pair Tony Morrisey, 16 not out, and captain Laurance Wagner, 10, gave the score some respectability.

Spinner Al Taylor only joined Allora mid-season but his spin was crucial in the grand final with 4-32 in seven overs.

Steven Hughes took 2-26 off eight overs and secured a runout.

Opening pair McLennan 1-18, and Lauchlan Hoey, 1-12, both off six overs, gave nothing away with the new ball.

In the Allora innings, Aaron Vietheer played a captain's knock of 49 to put his side on the path to victory.

He shared a 56-run opening stand with Mitch McLennan who was dismissed for 11.

Hughes, 17, and Kris McLennan, 12, secured victory with an unbroken partnership.

Kris said it had been a rebuilding year for Allora.

"I believe we had the youngest average age of any team," he said.

"We definitely want to make an A-grade final in the future."

Sovereign captain Laurance Wagner said the loss was largely to do with not batting all the overs.
