LAST season’s grand finalists Gosnells started the 2015-16 Premier Cricket competition with a stunning comeback win on Saturday.
The Hawks were too good for Scarborough at Abbett Park, with English imports Luis Reece and Aaron Keverne-Onyon putting on 95 for the eighth wicket to sneak over the line.
Brett Bayley was the chief destroyer for Gosnells, taking 4-18, reducing the hosts to 162 all out.
In reply, the away side were in massive trouble at 8-69 before Reece and Keverne-Onyon put together a match-winning partnership, with both bringing up half-centuries in the process.
Reece, who was last year’s runner-up in the Olly Cooley Medal, made a patient 57* from 108 balls, with only three boundaries along the way.
Lincolnshire recruit Keverne-Onyon, on his debut, took the aggressive approach, with his 56* coming from 61 balls in just over an hour, and including five boundaries and two sixes.
Gosnells host Mt Lawley next Saturday at Sutherlands Park.
