Captain’s terrific ton has Bears on top


SKIPPER Tom Jagot had a day to remember, bringing up his first ton for the season to guide the Bears to a competitive total against Fairfield Liverpool.

UTS North Sydney won the toss and chose to bat in the dry heat at Rosedale Oval.

Jack James got things moving with nine off the first over before his partner Ben Bryant copped a rising ball that presented the keeper with a simple catch.

This brought captain, Tom Jagot to the crease.

On 16, James got a good ball that nipped back in and it was 2/32.

George Lavelle (13) then combined with Jagot for a 58 run partnership, with Jagot bringing up his 50 off 50 balls. Tim Reynolds was next in and scored 41 in an 87 run stand as Jagot brought up his sixth First Grade hundred for North Sydney.

After the break Jagot combined with Ollie Knight (38) and in the process passed

150. He was finally dismissed for 156 from 208 balls including 15 fours. The Bears were all out for 325.

In Second Grade promising youngster Broc Hardy scored 71, his third 50 of the season, while his captain Glen Aitken remained 59 not out in a team total of 9/304.

Jordan Vilensky continued his good form in Third Grade with 74 runs after a hundred last week.

A three wicket haul to Izaak Merlehan, after being promoted to Fourths, has his team needing 214 for victory. Fifth Grade have already taken the chocolates blasting out the opposition for 79 and 3/85 at the break.
