Magpies take first innings points

PORT City Leagues Magpies took more points in the Grant-McMahon Shield with a first-innings win over Port Panthers Pirates at Oxley Oval on Saturday.

A good batting performance last week followed by tight bowling got the Magpies the spoils.

They removed the Pirates for 182 in the first innings, and shared the wickets around.

Jason Herdegen took three, Scott Dickson, Kyle Bray and Chris Cole two each.

Wauchope RSL cruised to victory over Camden Haven at Laurieton Oval.

Wauchope bowled well to reduce the Haven to just 117, before passing the total three wickets down.

Captain Todd Dalton led the way with the ball, taking six wickets.

He was "very happy" with his own performance, but even more thrilled with his team's effort in the field.

"Everyone played their part," he said.

"I was just lucky enough to get six on the day."

Matt Broderick took 3-44 from 13 overs.

Wauchope were forced to operate with two regular bowlers missing. Blake Larance was away, and Jason Blythe had a shoulder problem and couldn't bowl.

Nathan Lyon (4 not out) and Darren Bourke (29 not out) were at the crease when the team passed Camden Haven's total.

Wauchope lost Kyle Mann (8), Blythe (30) and Scott Mackedie (44) in the chase.

Dalton said the batsmen showed plenty of common sense.

"They kept out the good balls and put away the bad ones," he said.

Comboyne beat Macquarie Hotel on the turf at Wayne Richards Park.

Comboyne was 6-67 in its second innings at the end of the match, but its first-innings effort of 213 was enough to get the points.

Macquarie managed 161 in reply.

Ethan McKenna was the destroyer for Comboyne. He took 5-43 in an excellent 15-over spell.

McKenna's wickets included the ever-dangerous Macquarie skipper, Michael Pelley.

Tom Salter and Comboyne captain Andrew Glover chipped in with two wickets apiece.

All-rounder Tom Rienstra bagged the other wicket, to go with his 40 runs with the bat.
