Some lusty hitting put a quick end to club game at Allora

CRICKET: An unbeaten 82 by Adam May secured the Len Morris Memorial Trophy for the first time in Warwick cricket.

The memorial game will be played in the second round of Condamine Cup fixtures each season when Allora and Victoria Hill meet at Allora.

Batting first on Saturday, Allora made 123 with Cameron Masters the highest scorer on 55.

Travis Burns took 4-12 to destroy the lower order for Victoria Hill.

Adam May took a wicket off his only ball of the Allora innings but that was just an entree to what was to come.

He came to the wicket after the early loss of the wickets of Brodie Frizzell and Liam Duncan and hit 14 runs off the first five balls he faced for Victoria Hill.

May just went for his shots and finished with 82 not out.

Opener Scott McLennan was 38 not out when the winning runs were scored before drinks.

A feature of the game was a sharp catch at mid on by Frizzell to dismiss Masters.

Victoria Hill captain Tony Morris said after the game that his team's plan to catch Masters short on the leg side had worked.

"Cam looked like he was going to take the game away from us before he got out,” Morris said.

Batting feast at Slade Park

IN the game at Slade Park, Wheatvale beat Redbacks by 36 runs.

Batting first, Wheatvale made 226 with Harrison Glasgow scoring his second century of the season with 104.

Andrew McConnell took 2-27 off eight overs and Dave Drewery finished with 2-31 off eight overs for Redbacks.

Ben Heppell top scored with 67 for Redbacks in a total of 190.

Daniel Bowles made 25 to offer the best support to Heppell.

Glasgow took 4-24 off six overs for Wheatvale. Drewery dived forward to his right to take a classic catch at mid wicket.

In the Sunday game, Maryvale Condamine will Warwick Hotel Colts at 10.30am at Slade Park.
