The Ray White Wanganui Year 6 team's fantastic record this season was maintained on Sunday with a closely fought win over their Taranaki counterparts at Victoria Park.

Wanganui fielded a combination of their A team and Development team players to produce a 10 run victory on the Tasman Tanning No4 pitch.

The home side won the toss and chose to put runs on the board, but tight bowling early from Taranaki had Wanganui under pressure.

Luke Bullock's elegant 27 helped steady the ship, before Campbell McKerras took over in a very intelligent innings of 39 not out, batting with the lower order.


Awanui Rice-Edwards chimed in with a quick-fire 17 to enable Wanganui to get 127.

In reply Taranaki, were patient to start with as Wanganui bowled some good line and length, with Connor Rees particularly miserly in his figures of 1-3.

Regular break-throughs increased the required run rate up towards a run-a-ball.

Bullock (2-24) and Theo Tripe (1-17) bowled well at the death to get the victory.
Jimmy Lithgow had the best figures of the day with 2-11.

McKerras's all-round day on the park earned him the player of the day.
