Ramsey hits 136 for Peak

Darke Peak 6/277 def Lock 10/133

DARKE Peak hosted Lock in the A grade Saturday and with both teams light on for numbers, the Peak won the toss and elected to bat.

Zac Meyer and Max Ramsey opened the batting and Meyer was the first wicket to fall, caught behind of bowling of Slape.

J. Pearson went to crease with Max Ramsey looking solid but Pearson fell for seven caught behind of Boehm.

Jez Schubert then headed to the crease before Ramsey was out caught by Boot off Heath.

That brought Damon Ramsey to the middle and together Ramsey and Schubert steadied the ship with a 114-run partnership.

Schubert was eventually dismissed, caught behind by Boehm off Slorach for 70.

Butterfield came and went for 13, out for a brilliant catch from Jay Gray.

With D. Ramsey still out in the middle, he flew through the 90s and brought up a brilliant 100 and did not stop there.

He went for it off the last few overs his innings with 11 fours and seven sixes.

Ramsey finished the innings not out with a very impressive 136 off 99 deliveries with Dusty Harris not out on two.

Darke Peak had 6/277 after their 45 overs.

Slape was the pick of the bowlers for Lock taking two wickets.

With the home side setting Lock quite a task, Boot and Gray headed out to open the batting.

Kyron Mccallum claimed the first wicket, getting Gray caught behind for two.

Boot soon followed next over, bowled by Meyer. 

Kammermann (0), Burrows (3), Slape (0) and Slorach (2) did not last long and all of a sudden, Lock were in trouble at 6/23.

Boehm made 20 before he went caught behind off Schubert.

Heath got a life when he was put down for a duck and after that looked solid.

Heath and Young set out to resurrect Lock’s innings and had a good partnership of 72 before Heath went for 57, caught in the gully by Schubert off Ethan Tomney.

The innings wrapped up quickly after that with Scott Young left not out 20.

Meyer was unstoppable with the ball claiming five wickets with figures 9/4/5/11.

Tomney and McCallum were also good with the ball.

The Lock side was all out for 133.

Darke Peak will face Cleve next week, with both teams fighting for the second spot on the ladder, while Lock will travel to Port Neill.
