Laidley-Centrals rematch after weather spoils showdown

LAIDLEY and Centrals have another chance to collect some pre-Christmas silverware after a batting collapse and T20 washout.

The two leading Ipswich competition club sides will meet in a local Harding-Madsen Shield final next weekend at a time and venue to be confirmed.

That follows today's T20 Norm Baxter Cup grand final between the same teams being abandoned due to the weather.

Laidley claimed the title having a superior net run rate after both teams won four matches apiece in a tight season.

Next weekend's match will provide a final exciting duel before the Christmas break.

Laidley will also be keen to regroup after Saturday's rare poor performance in Toowoomba.

The Blue Dogs were thrashed by home side Western Districts in a final round match to decide this year's Harding-Madsen Shield victors.

Laidley captain Alex Welsh was the only player in his team to reach double figures, top scoring with 25.

Laidley never recovered from 6/38 to be bundled out for 60.

Wests made light work on the run chase, winning by seven wickets and with 187 balls to spare.

Laidley spearhead Liam Dean took all three wickets in his team's inevitable defeat.

It was Wests' fourth win from five years of Harding-Madsen Shield competition.

Laidley finished second for the third time, with this year's series played as a round robin, rather than pool, format.

The Laidley players wait for the next batsman to arrive after dismissing Wests cricketer Luke Neale in Saturday’s Harding-Madsen Shield match. That was all too late for Laidley, as Wests romped to another title. Picture: Nev Madsen

Centrals (8/175) defeated Northern Brothers Diggers by four runs at Mark Marsh Oval to secure third spot ahead of Diggers in the annual competition.

In other final round Harding-Madsen Shield results, Northsiders beat Thunder by seven wickets with 18 balls to spare at Tivoli.

Lee Watts top scored with 59 as Thunder made 9/191.

Northsiders' successful run chase was spearheaded by Nick Verrenkamp (64) and Stephen Humphreys (56).

Highfields Railways (6/204) beat Brothers (162) in Toowoomba and South East Redbacks were washed out against University.

Marburg Mt Crosby Thunder secured their first title in the Audrey Baxter Plate Second Grade T20 competition after the washout.

Strollers finished second.
