Jessica goes batty to hit them for six
A CENTURY by Jessica Jonassen was one of the highlights in the round of junior cricket matches played between Rockhampton and Central Highlands at the weekend.
Jonassen was the backbone of the Rockhampton under-14 batting as she plundered 101 runs from 75 deliveries before retireing undefeated.
Rockhampton reached 239 for four wickets and then bundled out the Highlanders for just 104.
Michael Simmers took a fancy to Central Highland bowling scoring 109, retired, from only 59 balls as Rockhampton reached a massive 428 for six wickets.
In reply the Highlanders never got going and crashed to a miserable 69 all-out.
Wickets were spread around but Preston Neill-Ballantine (2-9) and Matt Jones (2-15) were best.
Rockhampton was victorious in all six grades from under-11 to under-16.
Best bowling performance of the day came from Jordan Lynch whose five wickets for four runs helped the under-11's home.
In the under-16's Kerrin Corrie compiled 60 while Luke Johnstone (35 and 2-19) and Chris Swain (41 and 2-31) had solid all-round displays.
Lachlan Collins, in the under-13 grade, was another youngster to display his ability with both bat and ball scoring 85 and then following up by taking 3-30 as his side won by 176 runs.
In the under-12 grade Rocky was far too strong out-8scoring the Highlands by 216-5 to 78.
