Panthers, TKV in the clear

Wednesday 30 November 2011 | Published in Regional


After three rounds of heated Computer Man Super Six Mens Competition, the Panthers and Takuvaine have gone clear of the pack to be first equal on the table, Panthers taking first spot on a superior run rate.

Out in Matavera, the top of the table and the in-form Panthers side didnt have it all their way against the host team.

Batting first, Matavera posted 150 runs primarily through the efforts of cricketing personality Stephen Moko Kavana who fought a leg injury to score a dogged 53 runs.

The Panthers had a nervous start to their run chase and while their top order didnt fire wicket-keeper batter Parker Daniel lead the charge to score 36 runs, Patiamai Ataela and Teokoitu taking the team home in the 20th over.

The loss for Matavera sees them slide down a place to fifth spot.

Up in the valley, TKV hosted the spirited Avana side.

Batting first, Takuvaine pilled on the pressure to post a competitive total of 185 runs, with opening bat James scoring 45 runs.

Avanas run chase started a little shaky as opener Andrew Bullen gloved a well bowled bouncer to the keeper.

Unfortunately for the big hearted All Stars team, they couldnt cement key partnerships going forward, falling short of Takuvaines total by 46 runs.

The All Stars now place sixth on the table.

Things were scorching hot out in Nikao as the Electric Eels battled with Tupapa II.

Batting first, the Eels put on a crowd friendly display with Dean Head proving sensational to top score with 93 runs.

Rising Tupapa II talent and national squad member Peter Ravarua showed why he is a player to watch out for.

Ravarua put on a man of the match performance taking four key Avatiu wickets in the first innings and then backing it up in the second with a quick fire half century with the bat.

The win keeps Avatiu in contention for Computer Man Super Six winning honours placing third with two rounds left.
