Firsts were totally outplayed over two days falling to an outright loss. Silver lining was Tom Felton's 5 wicket haul and Ajay Singh with 3 wickets in his return to top flight cricket.
WHAT THE SCA WROTE: "...The ball again had the better of the bat at Howell Oval. Penrith was only required to bat once in a historic defeat of Northern District.The Panthers bowled out the visitors for 60 and 88 to win by an innings and five runs. It was the first time since 2013, when Randwick Petersham was bundled out for 45 and 71, that a team had been dismissed for less than 100 in both innings of a First Grade match.Penrith left-arm orthodox spinner Luke Hodges produced the excellent figures of 5-11 from 10 overs in the first innings, while opening bowler Ryan Fletcher claimed 5-36 in the second.Fletcher finished with match figures of 7-44. Blues top-order batsman, Ryan Gibson, also picked up a handy 3-14 in the second innings, with his medium pace.The hosts made 153 during its only innings with the bat. Northern District off-spinner Tom Felton became the third player in the match to return five wickets in an innings. He claimed 5-22...."
Seconds had the craziest result of the weekend with a tie at Mark Taylor Oval. Chasing 124, the final wicket was lost with scores level.
Thirds had a good win with putting runs on the board and bowling tight. Corey Miller continues his form with 63 and Jack Murphy (4) and Lachlan Fisher (3) took the wickets.
Fourths couldn't get going after being bowled out for 90 and Penrith easily chasing the total down.
Fifths fell just short of a win, chasing 183. Sam Watts did his best with 43 but it wasn't enough to get the boys home.
All in all, a disappointing weekend for the Rangers. We now move on and look forward to a big clash againstthe UTS North Sydney District Cricket Club
