Honeybrook brothers combine to end Lawrence’s dream
LCCA CRICKET: In recent weeks Brandon Honeybrook has starred with the ball for Wanderers. But in the last round of the 2015/16 Lower Clarence First Grade Competition it was his brother Zac who turned up the heat to produce a five-wicket haul against Lawrence.
Brandon went wicketless with the new ball before Zac came on and took 5 for 36 off 8 overs on Saturday.
“My little brother was in the wickets this week which was good because he’s been very unlucky,” Brandon said.
“We dropped a lot of chances early on. But Zac bowled full and at the stumps and showed us what to do.”
Wicket keeper Joel Peterie was the main beneficiary, taking four catches including a great overhead to remove Lawrence’s top scorer Luke Moloney (53).
Lawrence set a competitive total of 8 for 184, but according to Brandon it could’ve been even higher.
“Lawrence put on a good total and Lukey Moloney batted out of skin,” he said. “But he got out to a really good catch and if we didn’t get him he could’ve done a lot more damage.”
After missing out with the ball, Brandon lit up Yamba Oval with the bat, crunching six 6s and ten 4s in his innings of 91, which ended three balls after drinks.
He shared in a 130-run 2nd wicket partnership with opener Stuart Bowers (39).
Wanderers’ batsman haven’t been put to the test much lately, but they made light work of the target winning the game by six wickets after just 28.3 overs at the crease.
