Blackwater fails to build on early form

THE last game of the year didn't prove to be a rewarding one for home side Blackwater at the weekend.

Clermont's figures of 197 in 40 overs were just too much for Blackwater who were all out for 129.

The visitors won the toss and decided to bat first with Kim Williams top scoring on 73 which included six fours and three sixes.

Tom Robertson provided support, hitting a quick fire 23.

Blackwater's Rodney Rogers said young bowlers Damien Coppo and Hayden Rogers did well.

Hayden Rogers finished the day with the best figures of four for 40 off eight overs with Coppo and Ryan Campbell both snagging two wickets a piece.

"I thought we fielded well, a few chances were missed early on," Rogers said.

"We made a pretty good start - we were 5/60 at drinks after 20 overs.

"But we were short a bowler and let them get away after drinks."

Blackwater got off to a good start in its batting, opener Stuart Harris made 66.

Hayden Rogers provided good support with 34, but Blackwater suffered a middle-order collapse it never recovered from.

"We fell away a bit at the end," Rogers said.

Other matches were washed out. The competition will break for Christmas and resume in the New Year.
