Williams and Moon unstoppable

Sam Williams and Nick Moon put on one of the biggest batting partnerships seen on the Monaro with a record breaking 372 runs at Nijong Oval on Saturday.

The Coffeys batsmen combined for a record third wicket partnership devastating Jindabyne in the final round of the Monaro District Cricket Association two day competition.

Williams was at his best, scoring a season high 253 which included 28 sixes and 13 fours-a total of 220 in boundaries. Moon too was formidable at the crease, scoring his maiden senior century reaching 110, hitting four sixes and nine fours.

No bowlers were spared with Daniel O' Brien finishing with the best figures of 3/81.Such was the domination that neither batsmen gave a chance although the running between wickets brought some hairy moments.

Jindabyne started the game well removing both openers with just six runs on the board, both falling to spinner O'Brien.

But from then on Coffeys took complete control declaring at 4/405.

Coffeys' Steve Sommerville bowled the opener to leave Jindabyne at 1/30 at stumps.They will have to bat at their very best to reach the rather daunting total next week.

Alpine v Dalgety

The all important match for fourth got under way at Berridale with Alpine making early inroads into the much vaunted Dalgety top order. Dalgety were all out for a disappointing 130. Dalgety weren't going to throw in the towel and gave a good showing with the ball and had Alpine in a world of trouble before a match saving knock from L. Johnson saw Alpine pass the Dalgety score for the loss of eight wickets. The first innings win now guarantees the Alpine fourth spot and signifies the end of Dalgety's season for 2013/14.
