Bartlett, Daniels fire to secure victory for Iluka

LAWRENCE V ILUKA: A strong Iluka top order were able to master a popping Yamba Oval wicket as they chased down Lawrence's target of 158 inside 30 overs at the weekend.

While regular first drop Aidan Daniels (55) made the most of a promotion up to the openers role with a gallant half century it was his 67-run combination with middle order batsman Dean Bartlett (60 not out) that helped steer Iluka to the total with plenty of overs to spare.

It had been a team effort from the Iluka seamers to restrict Lawrence from scoring big in a reduced 36 overs a side clash.

Jason Allen (2 for 28 off 8) and Zac Newton (2 for 21 off 8) worked well in tandem to strangle the opposition scoring while also taking wickets at regular intervals.

Lawrence opener Tom Gerrard was the only batsmen for the side to master the conditions of a spongy pitch as he set the innings on the right path with a dogged half century before Hayden Ensbey (15) and Adrian Giffin (21) finished with a late flurry.

But it would not be enough as Bartlett and co finished the clash in style.
