A top of the table clash between Wingham and Great Lakes in the Manning River District Cricket second grade competition lived up to its billing.
Despite losing Cameron Brett (duck) and Ryan Clark (15) early on, Sam Hull and Liam Simpson combined to give Wingham a competitive total to chase.
Sam found the boundary 11 times before being dismissed for 81. Liam smacked the Wingham bowlers all around the park to notch up his first ton of the season.
Scott Blanch picked up a 5/38, his best bowling figures for the season.
Wingham’s opening trio only managed starts but that meant very little once Jake Mullen stepped up to the plate.
Mullen scored 121 from 78 balls to get the side within reach of victory.
The middle order worked out the remaining 20 runs to win by four wickets.
Jack Howard and Craig Lewis picked up two wickets each.
Wingham now sit 15 points clear of Great Lakes.
United defeated Taree West in the round’s other fixture.
