An unbeaten Moises Henriques century has kept St George’s finals hopes alive after Saints scored an impressive win over Eastern Suburbs on Saturday.
Chasing Easts’ 207 at Waverley Oval, St George reached 5(dec)-302 on day two of the two-day, round 11 fixture thanks to a 195-run partnership between returning NSW teammates Henriques and Kurtis Patterson.
Henriques hit six fours and four sixes on his way to 105 not out while Patterson made 89 before he was caught and bowled.
Resuming at 2-78, St George lost Luke Bartier (29) and Jonathan Rose (36) in quick succession. But the 195-run stand between Henriques and Patterson was enough for Saints to claim a valuable six points in their hunt for a finals place.
St George are in 11th place on 31 points, seven behind sixth-placed Bankstown with four rounds remaining.
St George face Northern District in a two-day, Saturday-Sunday match at Mark Taylor Oval this weekend.
