Westbury’s Side Triumph But Hepburn’s Team Have To Settle For Winning Draw

Westbury’s Side Triumph But Hepburn’s Team Have To Settle For Winning Draw

Ollie Westbury's club, Hay Park, strengthened their grip at the top of the Bunbury and District Cricket Association first grade after winning the first versus second clash away to Collie.

The Worcestershire Academy player scored 22 as Hay Park chased down a 104 target and triumphed by six wickets.

Westbury shared an opening stand of 32 with S. Florance and 43 with Ross Knoll before he was second out at 75.

After his dismissal, an unbeaten 52 from Knoll saw Hay Park to victory.

Collie had earlier been bowled out for 103 in 32.4 overs after winning the toss and electing to bat.

Alex Hepburn's side, Willetton Dragons, had to settle for first innings points on day two of their Western Australia Cricket Association first grade match away to Scarborough.

Willetton resumed their first innings on 125-3 in reply to Scarborough's 145 all out.

They eventually declared on 232-5 – a lead of 87 – with Worcestershire all-rounder Hepburn, batting at number six, scoring 25 from 62 balls with four fours.

Scarborough lost their fourth wicket at 98 when only 11 in front but an unbroken stand of 76 between opener A. Del Borrello and L. Knight steered them away from an outright defeat to 174-4 off 50.3 overs.

Hepburn was the sixth bowler used and bowled 2.3 overs for 11 runs.

The game ended immediately after Del Borrello completed his century. He finished unbeaten on 102 from 133 balls with 10 fours with Knight 30 not out.
