ALREADY assured of a spot in the one-day finals, Laidley were keen to finish their one-day fixtures campaign with a convincing victory over Alberton on Saturday.

 

Last-placed Alberton won the toss at Bichel Oval and chose to bat first in their Ipswich Logan Premier League clash.

Laidley's opening fast bowlers Ben Gibson and Matthew Dean were happy to oblige and reduced the visitors to 3-16 in the 11th over. Alberton's innings never gained momentum, losing wickets at regular intervals.

All Laidley bowlers claimed wickets, with 16-year-old left-arm wrist spinner Jack Wood enjoying his return to the Laidley side, claiming three wickets. Byron Cubit claimed the final wicket of the innings in the 35th over with the score at 113.

In reply, the Laidley innings began in a flurry with Deni Lee belting 24 in the first over.

He departed next over and Ryan Hurley soon followed to have the Blue Dogs sitting at 2-43 after six overs. Alex Welsh (19 not out) and Michael Sippel (53 not out) soon peeled off the remaining runs in the next seven overs to see the Blue Dogs claim victory and two bonus points.

Next week Laidley are at home to Centrals in a two-day fixture.
