Hughes ton saves Coffs
AUSTRALIAN Under-15 all-rounder Phillip Hughes gave his former team mates a cricket lesson, leading Coffs Harbour to a three-wicket victory over Nambucca in junior inter-district at Coronation Park on Sunday.
Hughes lives in Macksville and represented Nambucca last season, but now plays for Coffs Harbour after joining Sawtell.
Coffs Harbour bowled the home side out for 213 in 49.1 overs, with captain David McCormack claiming 3-18 off ten overs.
Coffs Harbour were in early trouble, slumping to 2-36 in the ninth over before Hughes led the recovery mission, blasting an unbeaten 129 after being given an early life.
"He had a bit of luck, he was dropped before he had scored and was bowled off a noball," Coffs Harbour coach Steve Thandi said.
Coffs Harbour will meet Lower Clarence in the final round game of the inter-district competition on February 13 but have already qual- ified for the final.
