Second tie for Westbury

WESTBURY played in its second tie in as many weeks yesterday.

The Shamrocks tied with South Launceston last weekend and yesterday split the points with MOWBRAY in their Twenty20 battle at Shaws Oval.

Westbury skipper Dane Anderson smashed 73 and had mild support from John Keedy (15) and Sean Stevenson (17) to help the home side to 8-163 from its 20 overs.

Justin Reeves took 4-14 from four overs and in reply, Mowbray were nine down needing just four runs from the final two deliveries.

However, it was not to be with Jerome Illingsworth (23 not out) and James Storay unable to get their side over the line.

The Shamrocks easily accounted for GEORGE TOWN In their first game - winning by nine wickets.

The Saints set Westbury 110 to win with opening batsman Marshall Pooley (55) scoring more than half of the team's score.

Reece Maher bowled well taking three wickets.

Westbury was in control for the entire match with opener Matthew Battle whipping 59 not out and first drop Josh Adams (44 not out) guiding them to victory.

Launceston crashed to an eight-wicket loss to the hands of South Launceston in its second match.
