Trio tied at the top


Three teams remain at the top of the table after the sixth round of the Mountain Scene Twenty/20 cricket league. 

Arrowtown consolidated their placing with a narrow 14-run win over Frankton last Friday. 

Arrowtown’s hero was Daniel Eyles, 21, who scored 62 of their 137 runs. 

Fernhill/Sunshine Bay also retained top spot with a 37-run win over Wakatipu last Friday. 

Sean Windle, with 73 not out, saved Fernhill from an embarrassingly low score. He then helped roll Wakatipu by taking 2 for 19. 

Joint leaders Jack’s Point also didn’t drop their bundle, beating defending champions Central Queenstown on Sunday. 

Jack’s Point opened and Craig Rackham again starred, scoring 50. 

Despite Jack’s Point’s Jason Moir taking four wickets, Central Queenstown’s former Canterbury player Wade Cornelius almost brought his team home with a hard-hit 33. 

Kelvin Heights are in fourth place after thrashing Lake Hayes Estate by 88 runs – their top scorer was Rob von Elling with 75. 

Semi-final placings will be at stake in three of the four last-round games this weekend, including a top-of-the-table clash on Sunday between Fernhill/Sunshine Bay and Jack’s Point.

In Central Otago senior cricket’s Twenty/20 Scurr Cup, two local teams face off in a semi-final on Saturday. First-placed Queenstown play fourth-placed Slope Hill while second- and third-placed Albion and Cromwell are in the other semi. Both games are at the Events Centre at 10.30. The final is 2pm.
