Unbeaten century shows ageless Mick still a prize wicket

LAIDLEY master blaster Mick Sippel showed he's going to be handful again for opposing bowlers scoring 116 not out in his team's latest Harding Madsen Shield victory.

His unbeaten innings helped Laidley compile 5/258 at Bichel Oval before the Blue Dogs bowled Northsiders out for just 107 in 31.2 overs.

The ageless allrounder remains one of the most difficult batsmen to dismiss.

That is already recognised by Centrals who have to face Laidley in the third round of fixtures next weekend.

Centrals made hard work of their run chase against Toowoomba side University, only reaching the 179 run victory target with 15 balls to spare.

Former Kookaburras captain and opening batsman Wayne Jones said Centrals were just happy to secure their second win of the annual one-day intercity series.

"They got third up there last year and we didn't know much about them to be fair,'' the batting stalwart said.

"We just made sure we won the game. It's that kind of comp where it doesn't really matter if we stayed as long as we get the win.''

New skipper Lachlan Vellacott top scored with 76 batting at first drop.

"He was hitting the ball nicely,'' Jones said. "No dramas there.''

Jones put together a useful half century batting with Vellacott.

He said apart from his batting prowess, Vellacott was settling into his new role having taken over from the ever-enthusiastic Matt Guest.

"He does his own thing and if needs something he will come and ask you,'' Jones said.

A number of the regular Harding Madsen Shield players backed up in this afternoon's Darling Downs Big Bash competition.

Having lost some key players this season, Jones said experienced club coach Scott Barrett continued to play a vital role.

"Everyone has been taught by Scottie Barrett at the club so we all know our roles,'' Jones said.

"So when these kids come up and fill the voids, hopefully they know their game downpat and they can contribute to the team.''

In other round two matches, Marburg Mt Crosby Thunder beat Souths by five wickets in their encounter in Toowoomba.

Thunder bowler Blayde Glass snared 5/23 off 7.2 overs.

Brothers were outclassed by Toowoomba Wests and Mets were too strong for the SE Redbacks.

The Ipswich Logan Hornets face a big run chase after the first day's play in their second two-day game of the Queensland Premier Grade season.

Wynnum Manly gave the Hornets a tough time in the field, reaching 6/338 by stumps.

Adam Smith and Sean Lutter toiled hard for their two wickets.

The match continues next Saturday.
