Parklands seconds were stumped by Wath fourths, who elected to bat and made 184 all out with skipper Gareth Roebuck, who hit eight fours and a six in his knock of 51, and No 6 Anthony Little, cracking 11 fours and three sixes in an unbeaten 79, scoring the bulk of the runs. Matthew Turner bagged 4-45 and Eric Hibling 3-36.
