Secret Harbour cricket prodigy blasts out unbeaten 102 from just 46 balls

Star Secret Harbour youngster Archie Sutton blasted out the second century of the Peel Junior Cricket Association season when he teed off during a game at Rhonda Scarrott Reserve on Saturday.

The 12-year-old Dockers all-rounder took no prisoners on his way to an astonishing 102 not out from just 46 deliveries.

It was a powerhouse knock that included 19 boundaries, including one going for six as he gave the opposing Shoalwater Bay bowling attack fits throughout the masterclass performance.

Archie was on fire from the get-go, chalking up a staggering 72 runs from his allotted 30 balls before having to retire as the under 12s format dictates.

But after the fall of a few wickets in the back end of the Dockers' line-up the budding star got another chance, taking just 16 more deliveries to bring up the milestone.

Secret Harbour under 12s coach Craig Reynolds, who has mentored Archie for three seasons now, was full of praise for his young pupil.

"To watch a young player put on a clinic like that, it was really impressive and the other boys loved watching their teammate go off," he said.

"Archie is a great cricketer but he's also a really good kid, so hopefully this is a sign of bigger things to come because he's definitely got plenty of talent.

"He's one to watch, that's for sure."

Archie's dad Dean was caught up watching his younger brother on the day, but after receiving a call from coach Reynolds was able to make it just in time to watch his son break into triple figures.

The Secret Harbour squad has been one of the more dominant sides across the Peel region in recent years, having not lost a game for almost three seasons.

They will look to keep their streak alive when they play White Knights Baldivis Gold this coming weekend.
