Broomhall ton guides Peaks to second win
Harry Broomhall’s second A-grade century has helped his new club Manypeaks remain unbeaten after they prevailed over Denmark by 46 runs in round 3 of the Albany Cricket Association season on Saturday afternoon.
Broomhall, who had previously made 100 for Royals in 2014-15, was given a chance on the last ball before drinks and made the Magpies pay as he went on to blast his first ton in Peaks colours.
Coming in at No.3 the destructive right-hander quickly went after the Magpies’ attack.
Broomhall’s luck was in.
He was dropped on the boundary and the ball carried for six to give Broomhall his half-century.
He went on to crack four sixes and nine fours in his unbeaten 114 as Peaks finished at 4-201 from their 45 overs with Ryan Kinnear (31) and returning skipper Craig Sinclair (21) providing cameos with the bat.
Opening bowler Matt Hope and Broomhall then ripped through the Magpies top order — Hope removing Englishman Jujhar Johal for 10 and then Broomhall claiming Dan Robson for five.
Hope took a second wicket in his following over as danger man Ryan Gaerth was caught by Wade Anning on four to leave the Magpies 3-22.
The big-hitting Hayden Collard made an entertaining 43 to go with contributions from Peter Ross (23) and Michael Pratt (29) in the middle order but their side was bowled out for 155.
Hope finished with tidy figures of 3-24 off his nine overs and Kinnear took 2-4 as Peaks won their second game of the season.
Peaks also secured another bonus point after restricting the Magpies to under 160 runs.
