Royals cruised to their second straight victory in the Albany and Districts Cricket Association under-17s competition led by a superb all-round effort from Teague Valli last Sunday. The Lions finished comfortable five-wicket winners over Railways in round two at Tigerland. Teague Valli snared two wickets to help restrict the Tigers total and then helped seal the win by posting an unbeaten half century. Set 148 for victory, the Lions passed the total four wickets down to ensure they remain undefeated in their premiership defence. Openers Clay Michael and Ryley Valli put on 35 together before the latter was caught for 20. Michael was the next to go after a well-made 29 but his side were still in control and Teague Valli along with Caleb Haua added 41 to take their side closer to victory. Haua was caught for 13 but Teague Valli continued to score with ease as he notched a second straight half century. Dylan Trigwell was bowled but his side sealed the win soon after with Daniel Berwick (15) at the crease and they went on to post 5-180 off 45 overs. Teague Valli finished with 51 from 49 balls in a knock that included five fours and one six. Marshall O’Meara snared 2-26 off seven overs, two of which were maidens, for the Tigers. Batting first the Tigers were restricted to 7-147 after their top order failed. When Mohit Jaggi was bowled for 17, the Tigers fell to 4-42 but Lachlan Tindale and Charlie Cousins steadied the ship. The pair put on 72 runs to get their side into triple figures before Tindale was run out for 38. Cousins fell soon after for 27 and despite a 27-run stand from Blair Ball (19no) and Troy McCahon (10) they weren’t able to post a match-winning total. Teague Valli finished with 2-6 from his five overs. Manypeaks also remain undefeated after successfully defending 171 against Collingwood Park at Hard North. Batting first, Peaks were bowled out with Jakob Douglas (28), Trent Herbert (24), Cameron Walsh (22) and Riley Wood (20) all contributing well. Buddy Robinson (2-6), Jed Kowald (2-14) and O’Shea Durack (2-15) did the damage with the ball for Park. Park narrowly fell short, despite a half century from Merlin Bew, and lost by three runs. Bew (56) retired and came back in but his side could only post 9-168 from their 45 overs with Peter Darmody (31) and Durack (17) playing strong support roles.
