After two days – and four matches – at the Lismore Under 12 Carnival, Tamworth sits on two wins.
Both days saw Tamworth produce one win and one loss with the side saving their best cricket for last on both days.
Tamworth bounced back from a loss to Illawarra on day one to produce a tight six-run win over Newcastle.
A seven-wicket loss to North Shore kicked off Tamworth’s second day before they came good against the Far North Coast Sixers to score a seven-wicket win.
Coach Don Lewington described the performance against the Sixers as Tamworth’s “most complete” so far at the carnival.
“Chasing 82 was always going to be tough towards the end of the day,” Lewington said
“We were on turf so the pitch did some funny things late. We really had to concentrate with the bat.
“I thought Charlie Walsh’s innings was really good and then Harry [Lewington] and Sam [Holmes] had a nice little partnership when it was very tricky towards the end.”
Charlie scored a patient 30 before being retired while Harry (12) and Sam (14*) made handy scores against Far North Coast to win with seven balls to spare.
