NP PHYSIO TARANAKI WOMEN TRAVEL SOUTH
New Plymouth Physio Taranaki Women travel south this Sunday to Palmerston North to take on the Hawkes Bay Indigo Women.
In a round where no Hinds will be playing, both sides will have to call upon the experience and depth of their squad. Taranaki will be without Nat Dodd, who scored 100no last Sunday at Pukekura Park, and Emily Cunningham. Unavailable for selection last Sunday, Kelsey Husband comes back into the side. An off spinning all rounder, Husband will fill one of the opening spots vacated by the Hinds players, with Jessie Hollard moving up from 3 to accompany her. Stratford High School bowling all rounder Jordan Bolger also comes into the side.
Kate Baxter will lead the side and will be looking for her more senior members of the side to step up. Grace Foreman and Nellie Chapman will open the bowling again, both were impressive last week vs a talented Manawatu batting line up. Taila Hurley also bowled well and will once again be a strike weapon with the ball for Taranaki. ... See MoreSee Less

The Taranaki men’s team head to Palmerston North for the CD one day Chapple Cup tournament, the team head South confident that if they play to their potential, they can come back with the silverware they last won in 2018.
The Taranaki side has been drawn to face last years champions Hawkes Bay in the first round with the winners going on to contest the semi final while the first round losers will contest the Cave Cup.
Coach Debu Banik has named a strong team that includes CD Stag Tom Bruce who will boost the batting line up.

Eltham Vets Liam Muggeridge, Bruce and Hawera’s Adam Keene will fill the middle order.
Icons Sports Bar Mattie Thomas will captain the side and look to Energy City Ford Ryan Watson to lead the attack, Watson will look to impress the selectors with his white ball form to see if he can be reselected into the Stags for the white ball campaign.

After last years disappointing Chapple Cup campaign the selectors welcome back Watson who was with the Stags and Ben Frewin who was injured last year.

First ball is bowled 11am Friday. ... See MoreSee Less
TARANAKI PREMIER CRICKET - ROUND FIVE TO BE CRUCIAL
Round five is shaping up to be a crucial round for many teams looking at making the top four.
With rep players unavailable due to the Chapple Cup weekend it may provide some teams with an advantage.
Inglewood and New Plymouth Marist United square off after tasting defeat for the first time last week with NPMU missing Dean Robinson, Ryan Watson and Daniel Bernet where as Inglewood will have their full squad to select from. Inglewood currently sit in a three way tie at the top of the table while NPMU are only two points behind but currently sit 5th. The winner of this game will cement their place in the top four.
Stratford will host New Plymouth Old Boys in a top four showdown with Stratford one point off the top of the table with NPOB in the three way tie at the top. Liam Muggeridge will be out of the Stratford side with Mattie Thomas missing from the NPOB side, both away on rep duty. With only two rounds left after this weekend both teams will be desperate to take home the points so that the pressure is off leading into the semi finals.
Hawera play host to Woodleigh with Woodleigh coming off their first win of the season upsetting NPMU. If they can continue their form they then have a real chance of catching the top four. For Hawera, they will need to win their remaining three games to have a chance of a semi final spot.
The final match of the round sees the battle of the schools with NPBHS taking on FDMC, NPBHS is having another stellar season while FDMC are improving each week and will be close to causing an upset.
All games are set to start at 11am Saturday 21 November. ... See MoreSee Less

NP PHYSIO TARANAKI WOMEN
New Plymouth Physio Taranaki Women met Manawatu on Sunday 15th November at Pukekura Park in the first round of the Mike Shrimpton Trophy, a 40 over match. Manawatu won the toss & elected to bat first. Taranaki struck early claiming the valuable wicket of Jess Watkin, run out for 5, the result of a great throw from the boundary from Sarah Parker. The introduction of spinner Taila Hurley saw her tighten up the flow of runs & claim the next wicket in her 4th over, Manawatu 36-2 after 12 overs. Mikaela Greig was joined by Hannah Rowe & they looked comfortable until Mikaela was run out in the 22nd over & the score on 90. Some outstanding keeping by Nat Dodd, who effected a leg side stumping along with an other run out saw Manawatu 94-5 in the 25th over. Rowe was still in & timing the ball well & controlled the rest of the innings to be 78 not out & Manawatu making it to 188 for 7. Wickets were shared with Nellie Chapman, Taila Hurley & Kate Baxter all claiming 1 wicket each & the team effecting 4 run outs
The Taranaki New Plymouth Physio innings starting badly losing wickets in both the first & third overs to be 11-2. Aimee Wisnewski joined Nat Dodd & the pair went about rebuilding the innings & made it through to 65 in the 16th over before Wisnewski was out for 22. We lost another wicket in the same over. Skipper Kate Baxter joined Dodd & this pair started to take the attack to the Manawatu team with some very good running. Rowe was brought back into the attack & struck in the last over, with Baxter out for 28, 134-5 in the 31st over. The match was evenly poised with Taranaki needing 55 runs from the last 10 overs with 5 wickets in hand. We lost a wicket in the 35th & 36th overs to be 156-7, with Dodd still at the crease & batting well. Still needing around a run a ball, Amy Foreman joined Dodd. We required 9 off the last over, in which Dodd brought up her 100 (off 106 balls) however we came up short by 5 runs. An exciting game & start to the season. Outstanding batting from Dodd, who’s innings was chanceless & a pleasure to watch.
Thanks to the large contingent of supporters who turned up to watch.

Taranaki U12 Boys v Horowhenua-Kapiti on Sunday 15th November Match Report
A very interesting and exciting game was played yesterday at The Sports Hub in Hawera between the HKCA Under 12's and TCA Under 12's.
HKCA won the toss and chose to Bowl first. C Broadmore was retired and scored 26 off 35 balls, K Patterson pumped 26 off 15 balls and C Barkley scored 19 off 35 balls. TCA made 131 off their 35 overs.
HKCA started well with both openers playing some great shots but once they were retired TCA started building pressure and taking wickets, C Broadmore also shone with the ball taking 3 wickets for 6 runs off his 4 overs, T Ingram took 4 wickets for 5 runs from his 4 overs including 2 in the last over of the game. HKCA needed 2 runs off the last ball to win, HKCA managed to scamper through with a shy at the stumps missing and getting 1 run which resulted in the game being tied at 131 runs each.
A great game with both sides fielding very well!
