Tweed impresses in SCG comtition

By TANIA PHILLIPS

TWEED District cruised through to round three of the prestigious state-wide Sydney Cricket Ground Country Cup competition with an impressive 63-run victory over Casino at Reg Dalton Oval, Kingscliff, yesterday. "It is very satisfying to be involved in a Tweed win," Tweed captain Craig Wilson said. Tweed have more reasons than most to want to do well in the competition. They have endured a two-year run of first round losses in the competition before making it in to round two last year - only to bow out due to a washed out game. However, despite the pressure, first-time Tweed captain Wilson said his side showed no signs of nerves. "It was a well controlled innings by all of us," Wilson said. "Our new-ball bowlers bowled well and we held all our chances but one." After being sent in, the home side put on 191 with Cudgen's Heath Wilson (51) and Pottsville's Paul Dhillon, (50 no), forming the backbone of the innings. In reply, Casino were all out for 128 in the 32nd over of the rain reduced 37-over match. Damien King (4-25) did the damage with the ball after Leigh Baker (3-15) struck the early blow. The competition involves sides from throughout NSW and culminates in a final at the SCG in late January. The victory sets up a third round clash later this month with arch rivals
