George Rhodes impressed with the ball for North Canberra Gungahlin but finished on the losing side in the ACT Premier Cricket first grade match with Tuggeranong Valley.

The Worcestershire all-rounder made the first two breakthroughs after Tuggeranong had elected to bat and reached 95-0.

Rhodes sent back top scorer J. Haywood (53) and G. Witheridge (33) as Tuggeranong collapsed to 165 all out in 47.3 overs.

The spinner ended with figures of 2-36 from his 10 overs, including three maidens.

Rhodes opened the innings for the Northies and was dismissed after making four.

His side lost wickets at regular intervals, being 39-3 and 64-5, and they fell short of their target (full details when they become available).

Tom Kohler-Cadmore endured a frustrating time as rain washed out the opening day of Penrith Panthers Sydney Grade Cricket first grade match with Bankstown.

The Worcestershire batsman was hoping to add to his fifty and century in his opening two games Down Under after his excellent end to the campaign at New Road.

But persistent rain from Monday to Thursday meant it was impossible to even try and prepare a wicket.

The two sides will hope for better fortunes on the scheduled second day of the fixture next weekend (November 14().

Worcestershire Academy opener Ollie Westbury will look to continue his good form for title-chasing Hay Park in the Bunbury and District Cricket Association first grade clash with visiting Eaton on Sunday tomorrow.

Westbury has scored one century and two fifties in in four innings in all competitions for Hay Park who have a bye today.
