Lawrence enjoys upset win over last summer's runners-up
LAWRENCE moved off the bottom of the LCCA first grade ladder with a big win over Yamba.
Josh Cormick scored 46 in the side's total of 216 and took two wickets in restricting Yamba to 136.
"We've been affected by washouts the past couple of weeks and Saturday was looking ominous, so it was good to get some points," Lawrence captain Anthony Tory said.
"Especially against one of last year's grand finalists."
It was a timely win for Lawrence - just their second of the season - ahead of the bye this weekend and the Christmas break.
The loss highlighted how much Yamba rely on the Urquhart brothers, Laurie and Troy, who were unavailable for the game. Yamba will need to bounce back strongly ahead of this Saturday's round 11 clash.
With both Urquharts back on board, they take on in-form Wanderers at Barry Watts Turf.
"Last time we played Wanderers we were on top before it got washed out," Laurie Urquhart said.
"So we're confident we can get over the top of them. Some of their batsmen don't have a lot of patience, so we need to bowl tight lines and value our own wicket."
Wanderers took just 15 overs to chase down Harwood's total of 109 in their match at Barry Watts.
Lachlan Johnson (24) top scored for Harwood while Adrian Boyd (3 for 26) and Geoff Boyd (3 for 30) did the damage for Wanderers.
Then Todd Petrie (51) and Brandon Honeybrook (28) proceeded to make light work of the required total.
"They got the runs pretty quick," Harwood captain Jason Hughes said.
"A few of their boys went out in a bit of a mood and hit them out of the middle."
This weekend Harwood meet leaders Iluka coming off the bye and all-rounder Corey Kempshall fresh off representative form for Lower Clarence.
