Crossroads make it two from two

NARRABRI premiers Tatts bounced back from an opening round loss to floor Civeo in the first one day round of the season.

Last week Crossroads took revenge in a T20 version of last years grand final, although that loss must have woken the Tatts bowling attack up as they came out firing this week to roll Civeo for just 49 runs after just 16 overs.

Pace bowler Ryan O’Neill had the ball on a string to finish with 4-24, while Brock Schwager also bowled well to finish with 2-22.

In reply the premiers had no such problems with the bat, openers Dylan Segundo and Jordyn Mowle crushing the bowling attack to pass the total in just five overs to take the points and a Saturday afternoon early mark.

Segundo top scored with 24 not out while Mowle finished unbeaten on 10, as Civeo did themselves no favours with the ball, bowling 15 sundries as they crumbled to their first loss of the season.

Meanwhile Crossroads shot to an early season lead after going two from two with another big win on Saturday.

Crossroads backed up last weeks short form win with an 80 run defeat of RSL.

After winning the toss and electing to bat the opening pair of Mark Fielder and Coby Cornish immediately got the side on the front foot.

Fielder scored 44 while Cornish hit 47 to put on an opening stand of 94 to set up the win.

Further down the order Steve Walsh plundered 33 before Steve Cornish, not wanting to be outdone by son Coby, smashed 37 to boost the side to 8-204 after the 45 overs.

Hamish Duncan was the pick of the RSL bowlers claiming 3-24 from seven overs, while Jake Brayshaw also claimed three to finish with 3-33 from nine.

In reply RSL struggled to get a start as the Crossroads attack pinned them down, losing consistent wickets to be all out for 114.

Nathan Trindall top scored with a well played 35 not out down the order although the next best score was Mick Dowdell with 18.

Craig Trindall was by far the best with the ball for Crossroads, claiming four wickets for a miserly 10 runs from nine overs.
