Rain lashed the Western NSW under 13 cricket carnival overnight and even though the end of the day saw the heavens open and wash away any remaining cricket, there was a miracle: cricket was played.
Mitchell scored a win, scoring 125 against the North West Sydney Hurricanes after an unbeaten 35 from Cody Hall, only for the Hurricanes to be 51 after 38 overs – 22 behind Mitchell’s comparative score at the same mark.
Oliver Freeman set up the win with 1-4 from eight overs before Hugh Thompson and Rayne Canham took 2-12 and 2-10 respectively.
Dubbo recorded a win against Mossman, as Jack Glasson (45) and Anthony Atlee (55) steered them to 5/171 from its 50 overs before dismissing Mossman with Ted Murray (3-10 off five overs) and Lachie Rummans (2-25) leaving the side in a spin.
Camden was too strong for Lachlan, winning by six wickets, while St Ives were dismissed for 27 in 28.3 overs by Illawarra, who overtook them in the 12th over while other results were still coming in at deadline.
