Fresh from a ton in his First Grade debut last round, Wynnum-Manly top order batsman Joel Harrison went a step further with a classy 155 for the Sea Eagles yesterday.
Harrison's big hundred as an opener helped the Sea Eagles to a healthy 5-338 against Ipswich/Logan at Bill Albury Oval on day one of the two-day clash.
Harrison, who started the season in the Alan Pettigrew Second Grade competition, had solid stands with the experienced Nathan Rabnott (53) and fellow rookie Connor Carroll, who hit 73.
Elsewhere yesterday, former Bulls squad batsman Sam Truloff was in fine touch on the way to 135 not out as Wests put on 306 against Redlands.
The Tigers did not have much time to lick their wounds though, back into action today with another impressive century today by in-form opener Liam Smith at Redlands, who hit 103 from 100 balls as the Tigers easily accounted for Gold Coast in the semi-final of the Kookaburra One Day competition.
Redlands kept the Dolphins to 8-224 and then cruised to 2-225 from 34.2 overs, with Smith, Leigh Drennan (53no) and Sam Heazlett (40) taking the Tigers into the Final.
The other semi-final also featured eye-catching individual knocks as Norths batsman Kendall Fleming registered 109 not out and Nathan McSweeney 79 as the Vikings (5-251) chased down Ipswich/Logan's total of 248. McSweeney was in the action there too, snaring 3-34 from his 10 overs.
Redlands will meet Norths in the Kookaburra One Day Competition Final on 18 October.
