Ray Laurie and Hugh McIntyre key in win for Waiau cricket over Winton in Central Western Comp 1972.......
It was all down hill for Winton when they met Waiau in the Central Western cricket competition in 1972. Waiau declared at 139 for nine on a slow pitch.
Ray Laurie and Hugh McIntyre the opening batsmen for Waiau laid the platform for their win, with a partnership of 62.
McIntyre was the more aggressive with him hitting eight fours in his 62 he got great support from Laurie who scored a more sedate 32 stayed in long enough to ensure Waiau got their win.
Bowling for Winton was left up to Colin Readman who bowled 18 overs for two for 58. The off spinner Hugh Joyce got plenty of movement off the slow pitch and he managed 14.3 overs with six for 52.
It was Winton's turn to bat and the two openers of Ian Deckers (31) and Colin Readman (14) looked confident and hopeful they would be able to pass Waiau's numbers. But there was a calamity when five consecutive batsmen got out for 'ducks'. It was great bowling by Colin Hampton who was precise and ended up with figures of 5/35 in 10 overs and and Allan Suddaby who had 5/23 in six overs.
The two batsmen that followed the collapse, Hugh Joyce (12) and Trevor Hannah (12 NO) could do nothing and Winton ended up with a run tally of 91.
David Ward (35) and John McDonald (22) got Central Southland College off to a great start against Otautau. Unfortunately the pressure began to take its toll and Robin Brash and Peter Bickley's bowling ensured Central Southland only managed 123/8.
In reply Otautau lost any early wicket of Robin Brash but that was their lot and the two other batsmen carried on to get past 123 without losing another wicket.
