NARRANDERA warmed up forSunday’s one-day final with a seven-wicket victory over Yanco Hotel at Yanco Sportsground on Saturday.
A strong team performance of tight bowling and consistent batting partnerships highlighted why Narrandera will be favourites for the title against the Yanco Club Cougars.
Narrandera won the toss and sent Yanco into bat and Jacob Anderson continued his good season by snaring two early wickets.
Mitchell Hutchinson joined Mark Doyle at the crease and the pair saw Yanco to the drinks interval without further loss.
However tight bowling, particularly from Brent Lawrence (0-13), restricted them to 52 at the halfway point.
Doyle fell for 25 shortly after drinks and Lachie Jess (3-33) backed up to remove Luke Pygram (2) and Hutchinson for 27.
With the score at 71, Kieran Moon and Nathan Lanham fought hard to put runs on the board as they put on 42 for the 6th wicket.
Moon, struggling to run with injury, was removed by Anderson (3-10) for a score of 22 in the second last over.
The excitement failed to end there as Jono Doyle (2-18) firstly removed Nathan Lanham (19) the Rhyan Carter (0) the next delivery to be on a hat-trick last delivery of the innings.
Yanco Hotel captain Dionisio Pantano saw off the final ball to prevent the milestone as Yanco finished the innings on 113.
The chase started in solid fashion for Narrandera with the total reaching 25 before Lincoln Gooley (11) was removed by a diving catch off the bowling of Matt Aliendi (1-18).
Captain Lachie Jess fell to Hutchinson (1-27) soon after as he left a ball cutting back to his off-stump.
Lawrence (19) was trapped in front just before drinks with 40 runs in arrears to give Yanco faint hope of victory.
However, the experienced pair of Craig Acton (46no) and Rohan Rehwinkle (15no) saw off the Stags challenge to pass the total inside 30 overs.
Pantano said while he was disappointed with the loss, his side continued to improve.
”Narrandera have been the top side all year, but I think we fought hard,” he said.
”I can’t fault the efforts of the boys on Saturday.”
The performance will please Narranderacaptain Lachie Jess with several players contributing to the win and demonstrating the depth that will confront the opposition in the final.
The win means Narranderawill contend this weekend’s one day grand final on Sunday.
Having won both the one day and two day titles last year, the Carpheads will no doubt be aiming for a similar result in 2015.
The side has stood above the rest in the one day competition throughout the 2014-15 season and will go in as favourites against a much younger Yanco Club Cougars.
