Quinalow quells minor premiership contenders
Cricket: In the penultimate round of cricket before the Christmas break, competition leaders Quinalow looked to create distance between themselves and second place while Centrals needed an upset win to get back into the minor premiership race.
Quinalow batted first and set a prodigious total of 353, with David Kucks performing exceptionally well with the willow as he went on to score 107 not out.
Kucks certainly wasn't lacking help at the crease, as he formed sizeable partnerships with Greg Campbell and Kent Skene who went on to score 66 and 54 runs respectively.
Anthony Chase was Centrals' best bowler with figures of 2 for 35.
As Centrals began their innings with the bat, it was clear they had a monumental task on their hands, and one that proved insurmountable as Quinalow cruised to a very convincing win.
Centrals finished on 119 runs after 35 overs, with Graham Cox top scoring with 37 and Anthony Chase lending a helping hand with 21 runs.
There were two stand-out bowlers for Quinalow, as Campbell continued his outstanding day out taking 4 for 24 while Michael Bartkowski notched up equally as good figures of 4 for 29.
In what is the last round of fixtures for 2017 this weekend, Kings XI will play Colts on turf 1, Sportfirst will host Quinalow on turf 2 and Centrals will have the bye.
