Nowra too good in low scoring match

NOWRA has taken the under 14 Shoalhaven District Cricket Association crown after Ulladulla was unable to answer its 93 run total made on Saturday at Artie Smith Oval.

The game was over early Sunday morning after Nowra bowled Ulladulla out for 58 runs.

Ulladulla won the toss and sent the home team in to bat first.

Third order batsman Cameron Fernie had a brilliant knock of 21 runs and was supported well by fifth order batsmen Clayton Hewitt (25).

Kuyan Wellington combined with Stephen Brown to keep the run rate going and made 20 runs for the eighth wicket.

Wellington was one of his team’s top scorers with 11 runs to help take his team to the respectable 93 runs at the change of innings after 37 overs.

The Ulladulla bowlers were showing some impressive skills with top figures going to Jared Smith (3/9), Travis Wooden (2/8) and Zac Jones (2.7).

Ulladulla stepped up to the crease on Saturday and did not seem to be able to match Nowra’s pace.

This continued on the Sunday with Fernie (3/2), Ryan Henry (2/7) and Riley White (2/7) producing excellent figures on the way to bowling Ulladulla out for 58 runs.

White was on a hat-trick, and Fernie was dynamic in the last hour of play to claim his three wickets.

Ulladulla’s only batsman to produce good figures was Wooden (22), who was eventually caught by Stephen Brown in fine leg, who produced the amazing catch to seal the deal for Nowra.
