Angus in dominant display
YOUNG all-rounder Dave Angus played a crucial role in Sawtell’s defeat of Nana Glen in round one of the 2010-11 KFC Twenty20 Cup.
His two wickets in the space of 10 deliveries was enough to earn him brownie points with skipper Ben Andrews, especially as he made the breakthrough just when it looked like Nana Glen was about to escape the trap.
Andrews and opening bowling partner Jarrod Urquhart had tied their foes in knots early, with the first wicket tumbling with only two runs on the board.
But the middle order rallied, with Troy Boulton getting a handy start before holing out and Jeff Reed looking like he might be in a position to rescue the day.
Angus quickly had Chris Shears plumb in front, then gave Reed’s stumps the death rattle to wind up the innings.
Batting in reply, there was no stage when Sawtell didn’t look in command of the situation.
It needed only eight overs to pass the target, with Gus Garland continuing his sparkling early season form to carry his bat for 20.
Angus entered the equation again and he also finished unbeaten, with a quality 54.
Such a dominant display should inspire the Blue caps for their regular-season one-day clash with Dorrigo tomorrow at Richardson Park.
Next Wednesday’s KFC Twenty20 Cup opponents will be Coffs Tigers and Diggers Ex-Services No 2.
The match starts at 5.30pm at Coffs Coast Sports and Leisure Park.
