JUNIOR Beaudesert cricketer Nicholas Stephens showcased his incredible skills during a match on the weekend, with five direct-hit runouts.

Stephens' amazing fieldling effort was backed up by teammates against Springfield Teal - the side had seven runouts in the big win.

The visitors restricted Springfield to 53, after piling on 83 batting first.

Patrick Overell scored 12 and Taj Singh 10.

Springfield lost 19 wickets in their 20 overs.

Veer Singh took 4-4 from four overs, and Hayden Steinhardt bagged 2-2.

Thomas Nairn took a wicket, and hit the stumps twice for runouts.

Beaudesert's first XI cruised to a seven-wicket win over Greenbank on Saturday.

The win was set up by a strong bowling performance from the visitors at Selywn Park.

A decision to bat first by the home side had disastrous consequences. Beaudesert got off to a flyer, with the score at 4-11 by the seventh over.

Greenbank then rallied before being all out for 102. Alex Darton topped the bowlers with 3-29 from six overs. Andrew Steindl and Campbell Stewart took two wickets and one went to Andrew Staines.

Joel Thorne (29 not out) Keegan O'Donnell (28) Luke Gittins (25) scored the bulk of the runs for the visitors in the win.

The Beaudesert second XI faced up for a rematch against Jimboomba Green, looking to turn the tables after their defeat to Green two weeks earlier.

After being sent in to field, Beaudesert applied consistent pressure, managing to also take some big wickets to get Jimboomba all out for 185.

Ben Holley was clinical, with figures of 1-4 from five overs. Greg Wilkie took three wickets, Carl Johnston bagged two and Jim McClure, a junior who stepped up to help the seniors out, took two as well.

In response Beaudesert struggled to find rhythm with the bat and build partnerships, falling 14 runs short at the end of the match. Mark Page (25) and Matt Diggelmann (22) were the standout batsman with Holley, Jason White and Wilkie also performing well.

Beaudesert White Level 2C played lost to Kuraby Knights Blue at Margaret Paige Oval on Saturday.

Beaudesert won the toss and batted first, making 10-105 from 23 overs.

Jack Wilkie top scored with 48 retired.

Xavier Dean made 15 and Paige Simpson 13.

Kuraby made 5-185 from 30 overs, with Illiana Gaundron taking 3-33.
