Champions go down


Two-time defending champions Arrowtown surprisingly lost their first game of the new Mountain Scene Twenty/20 cricket competition last weekend. 

Frankton scored a four-wicket win over Arrowtown, reversing their semi-final loss to the same team last season.
Star Arrowtown recruit Jarred Andrew scored a golden duck. 

Frankton tomorrow play Jack’s Point, who handed Fernhill/Sunshine Bay a nine-wicket drubbing last Sunday – in the process, claiming the Ian Paterson Trophy. 

Kelvin Heights and Central Queenstown, who scored big first-up wins over Wakatipu and Lake Hayes Estate, respectively, clash this Sunday. 

Kelvin Heights skipper John Cushen says his team, whose only win last season was by default, will be underdogs.
However, Central Queenstown captain Brad Patterson says his team may struggle due to social commitments: 

“There’re going to be some weary eyes come Sunday morning.”

SECOND ROUND DRAW (all at Queenstown Events Centre): Friday 5.30pm – QEC 1: Jack’s Point v Frankton; QEC 2: Arrowtown v Fernhill/Sunshine Bay; Sunday 1pm – QEC 1: Kelvin Heights v Central Queenstown; QEC 2: Wakatipu v Lake Hayes Estate
