Three from Three


Frankton Reptiles made it 3 from 3 with a win over Arrowtown on Sunday 1 Feb and in the process lifted the Ian Paterson Challenge Trophy.

Frankton batted first and scored 109 for 7 with Michael Collins top scoring with 45 and Don Jackson 19. Brett Paterson and Shaun McKone did not last at the crease too long and later we were to find out that they had only gotten home as the sun was coming up. The strong wind made life difficult for batsmen and fielders with Arrowtown dropping a number of catches.

In reply Arrowtown were held to 97 with a good bowling display from Frankton keeping the pressure on throughout and the run rate required climbing with 36 required off the final 3 overs.
