Brierly-Christ Church cricketer Campbell Love scores century for Warrnambool Gold at 2018 Horsham under 15 country week

CAMPBELL Love navigated the nervous 90s to score his maiden century on the representative stage.

The Brierly-Christ Church teenager’s 110 helped Warrnambool Gold start its Horhsam under 15 country week campaign on a high on Tuesday.

Love, whose previous highest score was an unbeaten 63, worked hard between wickets in the 104-run win against Mount Gambier.

“There was more running than boundaries – my legs are a bit sore,” he said.

“In the 90s I was in there for half an hour trying to get to 100. I got a two. There was a misfield so I ran back for the second and got it (the century). I was pretty happy.”

Warrnambool Gold blasted 7-241 before dismissing Mount Gambier for 137.

Late-order batsmen Jacob Dunne (35) and Paddy O’Sullivan (39) were catalysts in Warrnambool Blue’s win over Wimmera-Mallee.

Warrnambool Blue made 7-200 after Ethan Boyd took 3-22 to help restrict Wimmera-Mallee to 8-125 in its dig. A maiden century for Hamilton’s Jacob Hill proved South West’s downfall.

South West coach Andy Casson said Hill, who finished unbeaten on 138, helped resurrect Hamilton’s innings.

“We had them at 7-100 and they made 7-269,” he said.

“We were going fine but we dropped away a bit. Our boys aren’t used to 45-over cricket and they were pretty tired and it was a fast ground.”

All-rounder Noah Ackerley, who made 54 not out and took two wickets, was South West’s best in the 97-run loss.
