One day finals in two grades

PREMIERS Old Bar and United will meet in the final of the Johnny Martin Cup one day first grade cricket competition on Saturday at the Johnny Martin Oval.

This follows the washout of both first grade matches last weekend. United was due to play Old Bar with Taree West to meet Great Lakes.

Old Bar leads the competition with United in second place.

The second grade final at Rec 2 will feature Leagues-Wherrol Flat against Great Lakes for the Mick Dobson Shield.

In one of the few matches that went ahead Leagues-Wherrol Flat scored a two wicket win over Cundletown in the second grade clash played at Taree Recreation Centre.

Batting first after winning the toss, Cundletown made 151, with opener Tom Kelly leading the way with 63.

Gordon Cross was the most successful bowler for Leagues-Wherrol Flat, claiming 4/17.

Leagues appeared to be cruising to victory when they were 3/132, but they slumped to be 7/134. However, youngster Tom Burley showed composure to score an unbeaten 13 as Leagues-Wherrol Flat scored the winning runs with eight wickets down.

In a handy double Kelly claimed 2/15 for Cundletown while Simon Higgins took 2/18.

Earlier Justin Boyd looked in good touch when he scored 50 for Leagues while Aaron Pinn scored 28.
