TWO reflex catches by Trent Anderson robbed Primed XI of their first win of the 2012 cricket season.

Primed were chasing 142 for victory and, at 7/119, were closing in on victory when Anderson plucked the catches out of the air and earned the win for Colts.

"We had young spinners on and (Nathan Rosenblatt) was hitting the ball pretty well," Anderson said.

"I was fielding in close, about four metres from the bat, when Rosey played a pull shot and it managed to stick in my hands," the Colts' captain said.

"It was just one of those split-second things - it was either catch it or it would have hit me hard."

Rosenblatt was out for 25 and two overs later Anderson struck again, latching on to a firmly struck pull shot from E. Bayntun.

Primed XI was dismissed five runs short of victory.

"We were very happy to get away with the win," Anderson said.

"The young fellas bowled well, especially Luke Sketchley (3/40)."

Earlier, Colts scored their 142 courtesy of 49 from Clayton Marks and an unbeaten 26 by his 15-year-old son Dillon.

While their start to the 2012-13 season has been slow, Anderson said they were improving with each game.

"We have several new players this year.

"Clayton and Dillon Marks have moved here from South Australia and are enjoying their cricket. They are both fairly handy with the bat.

"Tyson Rienecka is another new face in our line-up. It has been several years since he last played cricket but he is finding form each game and is a handy addition to our team.

"We also have two new guys starting this weekend, which takes the number of players on our books from 15 to 20," Anderson said.

This weekend, the Callide Dawson Cricket Association hosts its annual Michael Carige Twenty20 tournament.

Matches start at 9am on Saturday at Magavalis Sports Complex, with the final under lights.
