Valleys celebrate another win

CRICKET: Valleys celebrated a win against Tenterfield, while Wanderers fell short once more at the weekend.

Valleys captain Damian Anderson said his team, which batted first, secured 211 runs in what he said was a "convincing win”.

Tenterfield struggled to come close, with only 38.

"We had a good strong partnership with over 100 runs,” Anderson said.

Anderson was confident his team would make the final four along with Souths and RSL, but he said it was still a hot competition between them.

Meanwhile, RSL captain Will Dowie said he was "very happy” with the result against Wanderers.

"(Wanderers) got off to a good start with Tim Harslett getting 51 (runs),” he said.

Damian Petrie scored 16 and Chris Williams scored 15, but RSL fought back.

"We knew we had to get about four or five wickets, which we did,” Dowie said.

Dowie said they met Wanderers' 106 runs in 19 overs.

He said Josh Wren claimed 2/4, Anthony Dibella claimed two wickets and Spencer Jensen, who was filling in on the team, secured a run out.

Wanderers co-captain John Dixon said while their batting had improved on previous games, Dixon said they couldn't claim enough runs.

Despite a strong start to the season, Dixon said the team's performance had slipped throughout the season.

"Our first three games were like we should be playing and I don't know what happened,” he said.

"We're going to try to get some more people to training on Fridays.”

RSL is leading the ladder at 39 followed by Valleys (37) Souths (32), Tenterfield (13) and Wanderers (5).

There are just six rounds to go this season.

There will be no regular senior cricket games this weekend, as the club will be hosting its major fundraiser, the Super-8s Day.
