Photo: JASON OXENHAM Go to www.westernleader.co.nz to watch highlights of Suburb New Lynn's win over North Shore. Suburbs New Lynn is after its third title when the team faces Cornwall in the Auckland club cricket men's premier twenty20 final this week. Both clubs have made the final after comfortable victories against their semifinal opponents last week. A half century from Daryl Tuffey led Suburbs to a seven-wicket win against North Shore and a strong batting performance from Sam Anderson provided the momentum for Cornwall's five-wicket win over Howick. Suburbs' bowlers did most of the hard work at Ken Maunder Park as they stifled the North Shore batting line-up and picked up regular wickets to keep the run-rate well in check. North Shore skipper Josh Tasman-Jones was the only man to hit 30 for the visitors and their total of 115 was never going to be enough to defend. The North Shore bowlers would have needed a good start but batsmen Jono Bassett-Graham and Tuffey didn't give them the oppor- tunity. Bassett-Graham was the aggressor in the early overs and he found the boundary often, but once he departed Tuffey got to work quickly and directed his club to vic- tory with an unbeaten 51 runs to book a place in the final. Their opponents in the final will be Cornwall, which owes a large debt of thanks to their skipper Sam Anderson for the semifinal win over Howick-Pakuranga. Anderson turned in a useful per- formance with the ball to grab 3-14 off three overs and played a captain's knock of 52 that all but led his side to victory. Howick had chances with a num- ber of batsmen getting good starts but they couldn't accelerate the run rate and Cornwall chased their score of 132 down with an over to spare. Scoreboard Howick Pakuranga v Cornwall at Lloyd Elsmore Park Howick Pakuranga 132-6 (A de Boorder 40 n/o, P Cairns 32, W Johnson 30) lost to Cornwall 133/5 (S Anderson 52, G Morgan 4-22) by five wickets. Suburbs New Lynn v North Shore at Ken Maunder Park North Shore 115 (J Tasman-Jones 30) lost to Suburbs New Lynn 119-3 (D Tuffey 51 n/o) by seven wickets. Bristow all set for women's open Big year: Huapai Golf Club's Cathryn Bristow is hoping for a string of victories in 2012. Photo: JOSEPH JOHNSON/PHOTOSPORT New Zealand golfer Lydia Ko has made headlines as the world num- ber number one amateur but Cathryn Bristow is another Kiwi golfer making a hit on the world stage. The left hander from Huapai Golf Club won the Moss Vale Golf Club's Ladies Classic in Wollon- gong last month with a superb eight under 65 in the final round. Despite this success the 27-year- old is remaining humble as she prepares for the New Zealand Women's Open in Christchurch this month. She says the key to her success in Australia was not placing pres- sure on herself ahead of the tour- nament. I had lowered that expectation a little bit and it relaxed me and I was able to hit the ball properly. And my putter was on fire.'' She hopes her win is the start of a big year as she aims to gain entry into the elite LPGA tour and take her game to the next level. Bristow is also looking forward to returning to Christchurch to support the open event after the earthquake last February. She was there with her brother before the earthquake and wanted to take a photo of the cathedral but didn't have her camera. He said that we would be back next year and we can take it then. I always think of that moment and that we are never going to be able to get that picture now. I would love to win the New Zealand Open. It will be a great week no mat- ter. But if it was to happen it would be the most important win for me personally to be able to say that I have won my own national cham- pionship.'' Joining Bristow in the field for the open is Redwood Park club member and former world long drive champion Phillis Meti. Suburbs in control Twenty20 isn't the only form of cricket Suburbs New Lynn found success in last week. The west Auckland club has con- trol over Cornwall after day one of their two-day championship encounter at Ken Maunder Park on January 29. Cornwall batted first and struggled from the start as Suburbs bowler Darren Eckford did the dam- age with a spell of 4-74. Michael Barry also chipped in with three wickets as Cornwall crumbled for 158 inside 65 overs. Jack Shantry (33) and Brad Che- maly (32) were the only significant contributors for Cornwall. Suburbs had 35 overs to bat before the close of play and they recovered from a shaky start to end the day on 107-4. Michael Barry made it a superb all-rounder day as he reached 36 not out, while Victor Davies (30 n/o) will be with him at the crease at the start of day two. Waitakere City looks to be in con- trol of their crucial encounter with Ellerslie after day one at Te Atatu Park. Waitakere needed some inspi- ration in the two-day format and got it from tail-ender Daniel Schischka. Coming in at No 9 with his side staring at a sub par total, Schischka struck a superb half century to back up Vaidik Raj's earlier score of 68, and lead his side to a respectable 235. Ellerslie shared the wickets among three bowlers -- Mark Newman toiled hard for most of the day and was rewarded with four wickets, while Andrew Scott and Dean Bartlett took the other six. But Ellerslie's batsmen could not back up their bowlers' efforts as they fell to 72-5 at the close of play. Matthew Selby (44) was the lone contributor for Ellerslie. Nonetheless, his dismissal just before the close of play means it will be hard work on day two with Wai- takere bowler Robert Evans-Moore looking to add to his impressive figures of 3-16. Scoreboard Cornwall 158 (J Shantry 33, B Che- maly 32, D Eckford 4-74, M Barry 3-40) plays Suburbs New Lynn 107/4 (M Barry 36 n/o, V Davies 30 n/o, J Shantry 4-35) after one day. Waitakere City 235 (V Raj 68, D Schischka 58, M Newman 4-94, A Scott 3-39, D Bartlett 3-55) plays Ellerslie 72/5 (M Selby 44, R Evans- Moore 3-16) after one day.
