South Canterbury Year 5 & 6 started the new season with a resounding win over Otago Country. South Canterbury won the toss and batted first scoring 130 for 9 from their 35 overs.
Ryan Lewthwaite 19 and Luka Foy 11 opened with a 40 run partnership which was followed by Ben Davenport 10 and George Coupland 21 not out.
In reply Otago Country never got going thanks to excellent team fielding with 5 run outs, especially those by Sam Richards and Ryan Lewthwaite with direct hits.
James Martin bowled 7 overs 3-20, Mcgregor Isbister 4 overs 1-7 and Nick Goodwin 1-10.
A great start to the new season for this team who now take on Dunedin Metro this Sunday in Dunedin.
