Webley's Weekender Smashes Records
Pacific v UCS Old Boys at UCS Playing Fields  Sun 17-Jul-2005 at 2pm
Won 156 Runs
 

Jon Webley scored his second century of the weekend, as Pacific raced to their highest ever score in a limited over game. A disciplined bowling display completed a fine win over UCS Old Boys.

Pacific 281 all out (39.1 overs) Webley 120, Grigg 53, Rademaker 41, Irfan 5-30

UCS Old Boys 125 all out (21.3 overs) Ullah 43, Smith 3-30, Webley 2-9, Bastin 2-17

Pacific Captain Braden Grigg was hoping for runs, as he won the toss and elected to bat on another beautiful July day. The initial signs weren't promising, as Peter Hollman (4) and Adrian Duthie (11) fell to the UCS opening bowlers.

Any hope UCS may have had of tearing the heart out of the Pacific innings was quickly ended, as Jon Webley and Grigg put the bowlers to the sword. As the boundaries kept coming, the run rate climbed at an alarming rate, with no less than seven sixes struck in a devastating period. Pacific had reached 142 runs at 20 overs, with no signs of stopping.

The breakthrough finally came, as Grigg (53 off 38 balls) was stumped off a wide going for one shot too many with the score on 142 (104 partnership). This brought Kurt Rademaker to the crease, looking to get in on the run scoring act. Webley and his new partner continued to pile on the runs, with Webley reaching his second century of the weekend off just 75 balls.

The UCS bowlers continued bravely, enduring both the heat of the sun and the hard hitting Pacific bats with equal vigour. Their efforts were repaid with Webley finally falling on 120 (off 88 balls), another 100 partnership having taken Pacific onto 252 in the 31st over.

In comparison to the earlier hitting, Pacific limped through the last few overs, losing their remaining 6 wickets for just 29 runs to close on 281 off 39.1 overs. Irfan was the pick of the UCS bowlers with 5 for 30 off 6.1 overs.

UCS started as they had to go on, trying to generate momentum for the long run chase ahead by staying around the mammoth required run rate of 7 an over. But any hope appeared to disappear as wickets steadily fell. First, the UCS openers Morris (10, Matt Holliday taking a sharp chance behind) and Abel (9) fell to Rademaker (5 overs, 0 mdns, 2 wickets for 34 runs). They were soon followed back to the hutch by Rickett (9) and Rosenthal (10) off the bowling of James Smith (8-2-30-3), leaving UCS on 48 for 4.

With the UCS chase appearing to come apart at the seams, Ullah and Bolsom took the attack back to the Pacific bowlers. Some clean shots, and a couple of half chances, had brought the required rate into view. But the recovery could not last, with Bolsom falling to Smith for 16. I Rose (2) and Youruff (1) soon followed, leaving UCS on 110 for 7.

Ullah continued to frustrate the Pacific bowlers Webley (3-1-9-2) and James Gleadow (3-0-26-0), moving onto a rapid 43. Soon though, his lives ran out in spectacular fashion, as Matt Callender pulled off a candidate for catch of the season, diving full length in the covers to pick a final full blooded strike out of mid air off the bowling of Webley.

The final partnership saw the Rose brothers come together at the crease, the elder of the two being the final wicket, bowled by Rob Bastin (2.3-0-17-2) for 5. Pacific applauded off the day's century hero, before joining their hosts at the bar for some well deserved refreshment. Pacific had won by 156 runs, in a game memorable for the clear blue skies and the excellent spirit of the hosts in their defeat.

Man of the Match : Jon Webley - Second century of the weekend and two wickets, no question.

Pacific recorded their highest 40 over total thanks to Jon Webley's 2nd 100 of the weekend & the men who batted with him to give Braden Grigg a winning starting to the Captaincy & yet this was still overshadowed in the field by an oustanding Colloingwood catch & performance from Matt Callender.

XI : Rob Bastin, Adrian Duthie, Kurt Rademaker, John Hill, Matt Holliday, Peter Hollman, James Smith, Braden Grigg, James Gleadow, Jon Webley, Matt Callender. Kit is with JW. Book with RB & match ball JD. All to meet at ground by 1.30pm
