HADSPEN openers Don Howarth and Ivo Agostini both made centuries to help the Chieftains to a big 114-run victory over Longford in the TCL Agrade yesterday.

Agostini hit a superb 130, with 15 fours and three sixes, and Howarth made 113, with 11 fours, as the pair put on an outstanding 207-run opening partnership, helping their side to a total of 5-298, after it won the toss and batted.

Longford managed 9-184 in reply, with opener Ashley Holloway top- scoring with 48 and captain-coach Aiden Hume making 35.

TREVALLYN opener Shannon Rumble scored his second century of the season to help his side to record a total in a run feast against the Diggers at Trevallyn.

Rumble hit an impressive 137, off 98 balls, with 13 fours and seven sixes, to anchor the Trevallyn innings of 6-318.

Trevallyn was in early trouble losing opener Andrew Fitz and No.3 Nathan Balym for ducks to be 2-1. But Rumble and Dale McNulty (58) rescued the innings with a 108-run partnership for the third wicket.

Rumble continued on his merry way and was involved in another century partnership of 124 with Andrew House before he was finally dismissed, caught by Adam Henderson off the bowling of Andrew Bassett.
