Jason Martin 3-55, Matt Hawkins 2-23) beat Weymouth 164 (Tamati Clarke 45, Brook Simpson 41 n/o. Kyle Blanchard 28, Ivan Burrows 3-25. Jono Hickey 3-19) by 83 runs. Karaka 115-6 (Todd McDonald 25, Sam Huriwai 22, Josh Snell 18 n/o. Mat Singh 2-22) lost to Pukekohe Metro 117-7 (Tim Hartland 43, Mitchell Sweetman 22 n/o. Hayden Wark 4-18, Josh Cole 2-14) by three wickets. Manukau head into their opening match of Counties Manukau club cricket's two-day cham- pionship against Karaka without their four match-winners. Openers Luke Glenn and Ashwyn Herwels and first and second drops Jono Hickey and Ritchie Faust are away on representative duties with Counties Manukau and will miss the open- ing day at War Memorial Park in Manurewa on Saturday. Their absence will give a near-full strength Karaka side an edge. The only Karaka player missing will be medium pacer Alex Borrie. He will be with Glenn, Herwels, Hickey and Faust playing Hamilton in a two-day Fergus Hickey Rosebowl match at Galloway Park in Hamilton. We're going to have to work really hard to win this one,'' Manukau cap- tain Brendon Read says. We've lost our entire top order and our bowl- ing stocks will be depleted with Ashwyn and Jono away. This is really going to test our depth.'' Read says containing Karaka's captain and allrounder Todd McDon- ald will be the key to dominating the match. McDonald, the run- away winner of last season's player of the year award, is having another impressive sea- son. He is running second in the player of the year stakes behind Wey- mouth's Tamati Clarke with five wickets and 181 runs. But it's his team's form that is a worry for McDonald, the Manu- rewa community con- stable. Karaka suffered a disappointing three- wicket loss to Pukekohe- Metro in their round six one-dayer in Pukekohe last Saturday. They managed only 115-6 in a match reduced to 40 overs by rain. Pukekohe-Metro hit 117-7 in reply to win by three wickets. Manukau are all grins after handing neigh- bours Weymouth their third defeat in three encounters this season. They won the local derby by 83-runs, adding to the insult of beating a previously unbeaten Weymouth twice in the same day during the last round of the recent twenty20 championship and in the final. Faust 102 and Glenn 42 put Manukau on the path to victory on Saturday with a disciplined display on a seaming Weymouth Oval wicket. Read says the pair anchored the innings with patience, discipline and some great shot making. Manukau reached 247-7 in a match reduced to 40 overs. Weymouth bowlers aided their cause, contributing 36 extras to their opponents tally. Ascoreof247isa handy score in a 50-over match but it's a choker for the chasing team in a 40-over match. Manukau strangled the Weymouth reply through spinners Hickey and Ivan Burrows. Hickey, who at 19 will become one of the youngest skippers of a Counties Manukau rep- resentative side when he leads the team out against Hamilton on Saturday, took 3-19 and Burrows 3-25 as Weymouth fell for 165. Tamati Clarke 45 and Brook Simpson 41 were the only batsmen of note for Weymouth. Weymouth, who will get to take their frustrations out on Pukekohe-Metro at Bledisloe Park in Puke- kohe on Saturday still lead the one-day standings with eight points. Papakura, who are away to Waiuku on Saturday after their match last weekend was abandoned, are second on seven followed by Manukau on six, Karaka and Pukekohe on four and Waiuku on one.
