Fifteen-year-old scores hundred against Animals
CRICKET: Sean Bryson is one of the few cricketers in Australia who could claim to bring up their first century with a five.
He made his hundred for Allora in the Condamine Cup game against Sovereign Animals at Allora on Saturday.
"I thought I was 70 or 80 and guided a ball to third man and we ran four and then the fieldsman threw the ball to the bowler's end and we got an overthrow,” Bryson said.
"They started to clap and I was thinking it was for the five but it was for my hundred, it was exciting to get a century,” Bryson said.
He brought up two milestones in the one innings, he also hit his first half century on the way to 103.
Bryson played junior cricket through all the age groups and for the South West development team in state championships in Bundaberg.
He played his first senior cricket for Allora at age 12. Now at age 15, he has scored his first century in any form of cricket.
Bryson hit two sixes and nine fours in his century and went from 78 to 100 with a four, single, two sixes and a five.
"My best shot was a hook for six off Caleb King,” Bryson said.
When he first played for Allora, Bryson said he was more an off spinner who batted but now lists himself as a batsman who bowls off spin.
He opened the batting and made his 100 in the 37th over and then charged down the wicket to be caught off a top edge in quest of quick runs to be out for 103.
Bryson and Nick Morris, 65, were the stars of the Allora innings of 8-244. Laurie Wagner was the best of the Sovereign bowlers with 3-63 off seven overs and Luke Cullen took 2-31 off eight overs.
In the Sovereign innings, Damien Canning top scored with 28 in a score of 150.
Will Ole took 3-23 off six overs and his father Bruce Ole 3-30 off six overs to lead the bowling for Allora.
