Glasshouse enter new year on top

Glasshouse will end the year leading a cramped ladder after stifling Tewantin-Noosa’s batting and hopes, a scenario common at all grounds as chasing sides faltered in Round 17 of SCCA Division 1.

Only three matches came to life after Thursday’s storm gave Keith Manthie Oval an early Christmas break, but Caboolture had already gained a first innings win on day one over home side Gympie.

The early week’s drenching and little drying opportunity made the going tough, with Coolum’s 158 at Nambour Showgrounds the highest of three losing chases.

The Thunder needed to pass the Rangers’ 184 for the table lead, making openers Alex Bennett and Andy Kratzmann prepared for a long haul against an attack frugal on even a good batting deck.

Facing Steve Heise and Jett Taylor, then Heath Fischer and Jeremy Schultz, the pair toiled for nearly two hours, rewarded by 50 runs.

Joel Owen had taken the ball in the 27th over, and the last delivery of his second over found the edge from Kratzmann to the ready hands of Liam Moffett.

When the same receptacles closed Bennett’s innings next ball off Fischer, the dreaded menace of losing wickets in pairs had begun.

Five runs later Owen claimed Sam Baker then a scoreless Jarrod Officer in three balls for 4/55, beginning a process of wearing down the visitor’s innings.

Jake Dennien and Chris Wright carried the flag to the last session, facing nearly 45 overs between them, but when Wright was out for 44 at 130, lower order batsmen became fruit on the table for Heise, who picked off three wickets at 134.

Fischer, 3/51, completed the feast at 142 for the Rangers to open the New Year on top.

Nambour captain Steve Ledger achieved the rare feat of a century and five wickets in a match against Coolum, as the Cutters repelled a strong surge from the Sharks, who had reached a worrying 5/152 in their quest for 234.

The five wicket haul continued a family tradition begun by grandfather Norm back in 1951, followed by father Grant, and continued by brothers Alan and Michael this century.

Zen Slattery’s 42 had started the Coolum run which was carried on by Tim Hynes (38) and Stephan Scheepers (54), but all momentum went with the pair as the innings closed at 158, when the skipper claimed the return catch from Sam Brooks to cement his 5/41.

Nambour ended the day at 5/107.

Maroochydore finished the year in second spot after containing Caloundra to 132 chasing the Swans’ 258 at Kev Hackney Oval.

The Lighthouse batsmen toiled hard to occupy the crease without the services of captain Wright, sidelined with a finger infection, but struggled to gain the runs that the time spent in the middle required.

The extended day allowed for 40 plus overs in the morning session, and the visitors would have looked to press harder after a morning providing just three boundaries, but were rocked by the dismissal of Brendan Kelly just before lunch to go to the break at 3/64.

The middle session provided little more of the required initiative, with the Swans bowlers muzzling the run rate while picking up regular wickets as the visitors found starts but no progression from Jake Gordon (24) and Tyron DeKauwe (21).

At 132 from 77 overs the chase ended, and while Luke McInnes with 3/51 gained the best

reward, Callum Stitt’s 2/10 from 24 overs better described the contest.

The Swans closed the day at 5/87.

Unofficial points after Round 17: Glasshouse 92.15, Maroochydore 87.97, Caboolture 85.04,

Tewantin-Noosa 83.38, Gympie 43.74, Nambour 42.52, Coolum 37.40, Caloundra 35.61.
