Hedley Howarth Trophy | Round Two
Papatoetoe 122 (D James 5-42, J Sussex 3-8) and 249/8 (B Rowland 62, A Sohal 62, L Clark 49) lost to Takapuna 413/6 dec. (W O’Donnell 216*, R O’Donnell 71*, C Mahoney 32)
It was the O’Donnell show at Onewa Domain with Will O’Donnell plundering an unbeaten double-century against Papatoetoe. By Will’s side for a fair chunk of the morning session was Robbie O’Donnell (71*) as the pair put on 167 for the sixth wicket. Will (216*) finished with 20 fours and 9 sixes during his 223-ball knock as the Pirates declared with 413/6 on the board.
That left Papatoetoe 74 overs to bat to avoid an outright defeat. Either side of a middle-order hiccup, Barrington Rowland (62), Arminder Sohal (62) and Logan Clark (49) showed their mettle to see Papatoetoe finish on 249/8 at the end of Day Two.
