Action from the Grafton v University game

Check out pics and video highlights from the weekend.
Jeff Crowe Cup - Men's One Day Competition
Round 5 - 6-Nov-10
HRV Papatoetoe v HRV Birkenhead City - Papatoetoe Rec Grd 1
It was all one way traffic at Papatoetoe Rec on Saturday as the home side made short work of Premier newcomers Birkenhead City. A commanding bowling performance led by Auckland Aces offspinner Bhupinder Singh (4/9) destroyed Birkenhead for just 107 and then the experience of Shane Singe (39) and Lance Shaw (59) ensured that Papatoetoe cantered to the easiest of nine wicket wins.
Birkenhead City 107 (Scott Davies 30, Bhupinder Singh 4-9) lost to Papatoetoe 110/1 (Lance Shaw 59, Shane Singe 39) by nine wickets.
Cornwall v Howick Pakuranga - Cornwall Park 1
The experience of the Howick Pakuranga batting line-up was enough to get them past Cornwall and maintain their unbeaten run in a battle of the heavyweights at Cornwall Park on Saturday. The home side were in all sorts of trouble until Sam Anderson (97) took control and guided them to a respectable total. For Howick Colin Munro (3/19) and Colin de Grandhomme (3/28) were difficult to handle early on. In reply the visitors built their innings around another Aces player in Andrew de Boorder who bagged the century he only just missed out on a couple of weeks ago to lead his side to a four wicket victory.
Cornwall 204 (Sam Anderson 97, Brent Findlay 35, Colin Munro 3-19, Colin de Grandhomme 3-28) lost to Howick Pakuranga 205/6 (Andrew de Boorder 100, Colin Munro 36, Lochie Fergusen 3-50) by four wickets.
Parnell v ILG East Coast Bays - Shore Road 1
East Coast Bays claimed their fourth victory of the season and in the process broke Parnell's unbeaten start to the year. Batting first Parnell only had an innings from captain Doug Winger (85) to base their total round and they fell just short of the 200 mark. Bays, as they have done before this season, did not have an innings of substance to bat around but they did enough to get there with contributions from Donovan Deeble (36*), Matt Mimmack (32) and Tom Briggs (30) to win by three wickets.
Parnell 188/8 (Doug Winger 85) lost to East Coast Bays 189/7 (Donovan Deeble 36*, Matt Mimmack 32, Tom Briggs 30) by three wickets.
Waitakere City v North Shore - Te Atatu Park 4
After firing a few blanks so far this season the North Shore batting line-up found their ammunition and managed to turn that into their second win of the season against Waitakere City. Hamish Baker (57) led the charge for Shore, and he was joined by Craig McGuigan (40) and Daniel Burney (30) to allow the visitors the luxury of posting a score in excess of 250. Burney then followed up his efforts with the bat to grab 3/27 with the ball to curtail a run chase that had been looking hopeful for Waitakere. Chris Fenner fell agonizingly one run short of a hundred but there was little else of substance from the remainder of the Waitakere batsmen.
North Shore 261/9 (Hamish Baker 57, Craig McGuigan 40, Daniel Burney 30, J Boyd 3-41, Phillip Chapman 3-58) defeated Waitakere City 224 (Chris Fenner 99, Dusan Hakaraia 33, Daniel Burney 3-27) by 37 runs.
Takapuna v Suburbs New Lynn - Onewa Domain 1
It was a battle of two of the early season form sides and the match proved an enthralling contest with Suburbs managing to maintain their unbeaten start to the season. Max Montgomery (79) and Greg Hay (63) provided the basis for Suburbs very competitive tally of 239/8 and with contributions from Craig Cachopa (76), Blake Douglas (41) and Elliott Herd (40) Takapuna were always in with a chance. However James Nolen's four wicket haul helped slow the run chase and the home side were eventually dismissed 23 runs short.
Suburbs New Lynn 239/8 (Max Montgomery 79, Greg Hay 63, Ian Smallburn 4-42, James Cowell 3-36) defeated Takapuna 216 (Craig Cachopa 76, Blake Douglas 41, Elliott Herd 40, Michael Bates 4-19, James Nolen 4-34) by 23 runs.
Ellerslie v Eden Roskill - Michaels Ave 1
An excellent batting performance by Eden Roskill secured them their first win of the season against Ellerslie on the weekend. Batting first at Michaels Ave Ellerslie looked to have done a very good job of setting the game up as Jacinth Gutla (68) and Warwick Hart (39) made significant contributions to get them through to 233. However the ever reliable Vivek Trichy (88) and an unbeaten 48 from Sanjay Patel allowed Roskill to complete the victory with the comfort of having five wickets in hand.
Ellerslie 233 (Jacinth Gutla 68, Warwick Hart 39, Steven Venville 31, Azhar Abbas 6-49) lost to Eden Roskill 234/5 (Vivek Trichy 88, Sanjay Patel 48*, Dylan Peris 44) by five wickets.
Grafton United v Auckland University - Victoria Park 1
Grafton notched up their second win of the season in a low scoring affair at Victoria Park as former BLACKCAP Dion Nash played an important hand. Batting first Auckland University struggled to get the scoring rate going as medium pacer Richard James (3/10) helped tie things down. With import Franklin Rose injuring himself in warm-ups before the game the University attack was down on strike power and Nash played an unbeaten 48 to help his side to a five wicket win.
Auckland University 144/9 (Richard Skelton 35, Richard James 3-10) lost to Grafton 148/5 (Dion Nash 48*, J Chalnor-Warner 47*) by five wickets.
