Partnership sees Tucabia Blue home
A MATCH-WINNING 110-run third-wicket partnership by Matt Kroehnert and Matt Dougherty helped Tucabia Blue cruise to victory over Harwood at Iluka on Saturday.
Kroehnert (83 not out) and Dougherty (46 not out) frustrated the Harwood bowlers as Tucabia Blue passed Harwood’s total of 148 with nine overs to spare.
Harwood openers Nathan Ensbey (22) and Geoff Simmons (16) started well, and Mark Ensbey top-scored for Harwood with 42.
Greg Mears broke the opening partnership and finished with three wickets, while Beau Deliuen ripped through Harwood’s lower order, taking 4-55.
Tucabia Blue lost two early wickets before Kroehnert and Dougherty joined forces.
“Matt Kroehnert batted well as usual and I was impressed with the way Matt Dougherty performed,” Mears said.
