TOAST CRICKETERS: Rowan gets Green light at Coutts

TOAST CRICKETERS: South Services middle order hitter Rowan Green took full advantage of a synthetic wicket and fast outfield at Coutts Crossing as he notched up an incredible 120 runs including 20 fours and two maximums.

The personal milestone helped the South Services side to an insurmountable 6-258 off their 40 overs despite the best efforts of Coutts Crossing captain Lewis Chevalley who scored 97 not out.

It was Green's maiden century since joining South Services three years ago and came off the back of a dominant half century on Saturday against Westlawn at JJ Lawrence Turf.

The former North Coast Cricket Council representative junior has hit fine form this season in second grade scoring 351 runs at an average of 39 as he helps foster the next generation of stars.

His dominant ton with the willow was enough to earn Green the Toast Cricketer of the Week for second grade.

In Premier League Coutts Crossing's Adam Elliott squeezed everything he could out of a seam-friendly wicket at Ulmarra to claim his second five-wicket-haul of the season taking match high figures of six for 33 off 17 overs as GDSC Easts were dismissed for 106 in the first innings.

While in third grade Tucabia's Ricky Gough was involved in everything as his side dismantled Brothers at Victoria Park in Tucabia.

Gough was unrelenting with the ball taking four for 25 off seven overs before then shining with the bat notching an unbeaten 71 runs, hitting 12 fours and one six alongside Jason O'Hara (45) as Tucabia cruised to victory.
