ROCKHAMPTON’S UNBEATEN RUN ENDED BY 1st XI

First XI chalk up second much needed win.

A half-century from skipper, Alex Gray, and 3 wickets apiece for Karl Mortimer, Andy Brookes and Jamie Wood helped Newent stop Rockhampton’s previous run of four games without defeat at Three Ashes, as the home side won by 7 wickets.

The visitors won the toss and elected to bat on a wicket that had something for bowlers and batsmen alike, but it was first blood to the bowlers as Andy Brookes struck on the second ball of the second over to dismiss opener Jeremy White for 1. Andy claimed two more victims in fairly quick succession to leave Rockhampton stunned at 23-3. There was a temporary respite as Simon Hore and Nigel Hopkins dug in to restore the visitors’ pride and they had added 56 before Hore fell to the third successive catch by wicket-keeper, Neil Roche off the bowling of Jamie Wood. Newent kept the pressure on as both Karl Mortimer and Jamie struck twice more each to take the score to 101-6.

Rockhampton’s Sam Long hadn’t got comfortable before a stunning diving left-handed reflex catch by Alex sent the Newent fielders wild in disbelief. Tails were up and the last 4 wickets fell for the addition of just another 36 runs to leave the visitors all-out for 137 at tea.
Newent’s opening pair of Alex and Ben Sillince then faced the two-pronged all-out attack of Chris Pearce and Will Briscoe as Rockhampton set about returning the compliments as they used the wicket to their advantage. Ben (14) was bowled by Briscoe with the score on 18 with Alex being joined at the crease by Tom Morley. The pair remained patient and with plenty of overs in hand, they took no chances as they added 75 before Alex top-edged a catch to Jeremy White, shortly after he had reached his first 50 of the season. With Tom caught by Rockhampton skipper, Allie Douds for 27 it was left to Morgan Evans (22, with 5 boundaries) and Henry Lock (19, and 4 boundaries) to bring Newent home at 141-3 and a memorable victory by 7 wickets.
