Cracking Tons For Walkerston Hot Shots Peters And Newbury

Twin centuries by talented Walkerston juniors Tyler Peters and Cooper Newbury proved the highlight of fourth round limited overs action in the Mackay Junior Cricket Association competition.

Padding up in the Under 15B division, the promising colts turned on a batting masterclass to help the Walkerston Under 14s team amass an imposing tally of 1-252 in the 25 overs per side fixture at McLennan Park.

In an entertaining run fest the flamboyant Peters blasted 103 runs off only 56 deliveries including 21 boundaries while Newbery cracked seventeen fours in a dashing knock of 100 before both batsmen retired.

Walkerston restricted the Magpies Under 14 Blacks to 6-141.

The Magpies were best served by skipper Jacob Whitby, who smashed 50 runs off 41 balls with eight boundaries, Aarnav Reelh (38) and Xander Ness (20).

Will Keen was the pick of the Walkerston bowlers with 2-33.

Proserpine Cricket Club defeated the Magpies White team in an Under 15A clash at Proserpine Sports Ground.

Jordan Lawn top scored for the home side with 31 runs off 37 balls with support from Donovan Pettiford (21) in a total of 151.

The Magpies could only muster 8-100 in reply with young gun Ishan Rana cracking a stylish 50 off 56 balls.

Lawn (2-5) and Oliver Seamer (2-6) bowled accurately for Proserpine while Cooper Boyce (3-10 off five overs), Rana (2-11 off four overs) and Soham Rana (2-18 off three overs) spearheaded the Magpies attack.
