Mines muscle past Port side
Hedland’s cricket season continued in full swing as Mines took on Port Hedland in the last round of the home and away games.
Port won the toss and elected to bat first. Sam Mason and Kobus Wessels led the charge against some fast bowling from Daniel Lockley, Taurean Williams and Eithan Hennessy on Saturday.
They were in trouble early as Mason was removed for eight and Wessels was sent back to the boundary for just a single.
Mines pressured their opponents throughout with excellent fielding and persistent, albeit comical sledging.
Luke Jessop and Jarrad O’Dea brought in some much-needed momentum. Jessop made 19 before being trapped lbw and O’Dea slogged his way to 16.
Port finished at 8-146, with Glen Robertson unbeaten on 51.
Mines took 33 overs to chase down the target, reaching 148 with six wickets down.
Charity cricket fanatics also have an event to look forward to this weekend as the association hosts its Pink Stumps Day match at 5pm on Saturday, with the aim of raising $500 for the McGrath Foundation.
