Last weekend the Premier Cricket League returned after the Christmas and New Years break.
The run to the finals is well and truly underway and each match could be a game changer.
Round 11 saw the Port City Leagues Magpies defeat Nulla 226 to 141. After losing early wickets Magpies players Sean Minns with 90 and Blake Larance with 45 displayed a strong partnership to lengthen their lead to 226. The valiant Nulla side fought hard but couldn't make up the wickets.
The Rovers had a week of rest after they were given the BYE.
Meanwhile, Johnny Martin Oval in Taree hosted Macquarie against Taree West. Macquarie defeated Taree West with 5/217 to 55.
Wauchope 7/152 defeated United 149, and the Port Macquarie Pirates drew with Wingham.
With Round 12 all set for the weekend, the ladder has a couple of teams jostling for 4 th.
11 points separate 1 st from 4 th and there are five teams between 37 and 25 points. These could be the most crucial games of the season and may decide who gets to the finals and who misses out.
The Port Macquarie Pirates are in 3 rd and will travel to South Kempsey for a match against Nulla who are struggling in 9th.
Oxley Oval in Port Macquarie will have the 6th placed Rovers visiting to take on the Port City Leagues Magpies in who are in 4 th place.
