Turangi Whimps take round robin honours

Saturday 3 December 2011 | Published in Regional


A wet afternoon wasnt enough to deter the Edgewater Super 8 cricket games going ahead with the last round games proving to be the closest yet.

In the battle for round robin honours, Turangi Whimps were up against a fast improving Titikaveka team eager to do well on their home pitch.

Batting first, Titikaveka managed to compile a well constructed 127 runs with some good partnerships to see Maryanne Miller top scoring with 41 runs.

Turangis bowlers contained the Titikaveka batters well, but extras helped to increase Titikavekas team total.

In reply, the Whimps were in trouble early losing a couple of quick wickets.

Enter June George, who really got the runs moving for the Turangi girls with an excellent innings of 61 not out, including some big boundaries all around.

The Whimps reached 128 runs in the 11th over to take a well deserved win and top honours in the Super 8 competition.

Avana Nui were looking for a win to advance them into the final two next week against the Muri Creep girls.

Batting first, Avana Nui lost regular wickets, which really hampered them from getting a big score.

Tight bowling from Muri restricted the Nui girls to 65.

In reply, Muri also lost regular wickets which made for an exciting finish, Muri getting there with one wicket to spare.

Avana Knights went very close to producing an upset against the Cheeky Babes from Turangi. The Knights chasing 83 for the win, fell 10 runs short to give the Cheeky Babes the win.

Next week sees the Super 8 finals on Wednesday afternoon at 5pm. Check out draws and venues in next weeks paper.
