Rosewood stun All Stars

Rosewood had the bleakest of starts to their Tumbarumba District Cricket Association (TDCA) 2021/22 campaign in round one, going down to Tooma by 71 runs. 

On Saturday, playing at Tumbarumba Sportsground, Rosewood bounced back in the best way possible when stunning perennial powerhouse, All Stars, by 42-runs.

All Stars won the toss and sent the visitors in to bat, which proved to benefit Rosewood, who piled on 5/188 from their 40 overs. 

Derek Smith added 39 at the top of the order, while Roy Smith scored 50 and Nathan Morton top scored with 54 before retiring not out. 

Bailey Hawkins also scored 29, helping his side to a good first-innings total. 

Although unable to snare a wicket, the pick of All Stars’ bowling line-up was Glenn McCallum, who only went for 24 off his three overs, bowling two maidens in the process. 

Karl Lewis (1/35), Matt Byatt (1/36), Brock Shore (1/41) and Dalton Shore (1/24) all took a wicket each, but the Rosewood would bat through the innings. 

In reply, All Stars had plenty of batsmen able to get a start, but no one went on with it, as they were bowled out for 146 from 38.2 overs. 

Brock Shore top scored with 34 and Brandon Hawkins scored 22 not out further down the order but it wouldn’t be enough for the home side. 

Arthur Smith was sharp, taking 2/16 from his eight overs, and Bailey Hawkins took 3/27 from seven overs. 

Ewan Middleton also took 2/15 from 3.2 overs and Nathan Morton was economical and effective, taking 2/24 from seven overs. 

Rosewood will now get the weekend off alongside All Stars, while Falcons are set to host Tooma at Tumbarumba Sportsground on Saturday.
