Lions shown no mercy by ruthless Saints 


GEORGE Town stamped a mark of dominance over Launceston in yesterday's NTCA clash.

The Saints dismissed Launceston for 86 runs and proceeded to romp away, scoring 5-200.

Liam Johnson and Zachary Barber followed Scott Semmens's strong opening, with Johnson tallying up a mighty 74 not out.

Adam Davie came in at the back end of the order, and scored another 21 runs for the team before the innings was over.

At Invermay Park, Mowbray's solid bowling against Riverside down to 87.

Mowbray's Justin Reeves demolished Riverside's top order, bowling and catching Riverside's Zachary Towns to top off his spell.

Mowbray finished the day's play at 1-16.

Eagles captain Clinton Reid said he was pleased with his team's efforts in the field and was hoping to come back strong when play continued next week.

South Launceston had a tough run against the undefeated Westbury Shamrocks, finishing the day's play at 4-40 while chasing the Shamrocks' score of 255.

Knights captain Sean Harris said he was relieved to finally dismiss Westbury's Dane Anderson on 95 runs.

"He's a quality player, he gave us a few chances early but he ended up getting away from us," Harris said.

"Graham Donaldson bowled well for us and took four wickets, but we probably didn't make the most of our chances."

Harris said there was a tough trail ahead for next week's match, but he hoped to remain competitive.
