Railways captain Coen Marwick said his side’s clutch winning double over ladder-leaders Royals has given his team rekindled belief as they make their push for a finals berth. The Tigers secured victories in their Albany and Districts Cricket Association one-day and T20 fixtures at the weekend to collect nine points and tighten their grip on a finals spot, 11 points clear of the fourth-placed Collingwood Park. A Marwick masterclass ensured the Tigers clawed their way to a two-wicket one-day win over the Lions at Turf East on Saturday. Tigers skipper Coen Marwick claimed a five-wicket haul while brother Zane Marwick, returning to play for the weekend for his former club, scored an unbeaten 48 as the pair steered their side to a clutch victory. Coen Marwick said although his brother’s inclusion was crucial to their triumph, it gave his side motivation to keep their winning momentum going. “We couldn’t have done it this weekend without Zane,” Coen Marwick said. “The runs stand out and without his 48 not out we wouldn’t have won that’s for sure, but what he brought to us in the field and with the ball in hand can’t be overlooked. Fourteen overs that went for a total of 28 runs is unbelievable. “We had been well below what we expect the last few games so to get back to playing our brand of cricket was good to see. “I challenged the boys before the weekend and they responded, in a young group that’s all I can ask for. “We have now beaten every team in the competition, that’s got to give you belief. “We have three games left and a bye so at minimum winning one game is a must but we will be striving to win them all.” After winning the toss and electing to bat the Lions were strangled by their opponents’ tight lines and economic bowling before being skittled for just 104 in 49 overs. The Marwick brothers did most of the damage combining for 6-31 from 19 overs including five of the last six Lions wickets in a batting collapse where they lost 6-23. Coen Marwick ended with an impressive 5-16 from nine overs and Zane Marwick claimed 1-15 from 10, while Ryan Tindale contributed a handy 2-16 off 10 overs. The weekend’s fixtures were a one-off for premiership player Zane Marwick who was down visiting family. Lions captain Mitch Green top scored with 20 while Rhys Lewis and Matt France each chipped in with 18 as the main contributors for the Lions. In response, Tigers slumped to 3-21 early before Zane Marwick toiled hard in six separate partnerships to reel in the total eight wickets down in the 44th over. Joe Stanley scored 15 at the top of the order before Lachlan Tindale accumulated an important 14 through the middle overs. Angus Thompson led the Lion’s bowling attack with 4-12 from his four overs but it was the Tigers who snared a vital victory. Zane Marwick’s 48no came from 104 balls while youngster Lochlan Otway made four not out to help steer their side across the line. The Tigers also defeated the Lions in a T20 on Friday night after successfully defending 112 at Turf North to win by 27 runs. After winning the toss and batting, the Tigers were 3-78 in their batting innings before losing 6-34 to finish the innings 9-112. Lachlan Tindale scored 33 including three fours while Zane Marwick chipped in with 26. Lions’ Jack Hastie claimed 3-29 from four overs and France took 2-21 from four. The Lions were far too cautious in the run chase and after accumulating too many dot balls early in the innings, they left themselves with too much work to do late in the piece. Angus Thompson top scored with an unbeaten 23 while Ted Bachelor scored a late quickfire 16 before they finished 6-85 from 20 overs.
