Sixth Grade
NEW Norfolk III were crowned premiers of the SCA Sixth Grade T20 competition after dispatching St Annes last week by 45 runs.
Playing at Tynwald Park, the match looked like it was getting out of reach for the Redcaps during the Crows run chase, but a terrific fight back by the Redcaps bowlers turned the tide.
Batting first, New Norfolk posted 9/155, mainly thanks to man-of-the-match Mitchell Crosswell’s scintillating 73 from 38 deliveries.
Crosswell who now has two flags with the club and on both occasions has been named best player.
The allrounder clubbed nine fours and three sixes in his superb knock.
The Crows were left with their feathers ruffled after dropping Crosswell on 20 odd and losing a player with split webbing in process.
When the Crows began their innings they were sitting pretty at 2-86 and victory looked likely.
Josh Farrow 2-15 and Mitchell Crosswell 2-22 teamed up taking top three batsman while Adam Pearce finished with great figures of 2-5 and Nathan Heron 2-19.

Seventh Grade
IN a thrilling final over at home, Bothwell prevailed over Old Beach by the barest of margins of one run. Chasing 102 with one wicket remaining, Old Beach needed eight runs to win or worst case, seven runs for a tie and super over.
Bothwell’s Ryan Triffitt was thrown the ball and his first four deliveries were all dots.
The fifth ball went for six, leaving two needed from the last.
Wilson swings and misses and is bowled.
Bothwell II win their first T20 premiership.
