BACK-to-back half centuries from Bathurst's Nick Shurmer have played a crucial role in helping St George second grade maintain their unbeaten run through the NSW Premier Cricket competition.
Shurmer hit 54 runs in St George's victory over Mosman on Saturday, and his played one of his most explosive innings in the Sydney competition a week earlier when hitting a destructive 89 not out in a win over Fairfield Liverpool.
The 89-run effort - his highest second grade score since a November 2017 century - included 24 runs off the final over.
He notched up seven fours and four sixes in his hour and a half at the crease.
That late flourish of runs saw St George finish on 7-291, and Fairfield finished short in their chase at 239.
Saturday's most recent effort helped the Saints post 8-240. Mosman were all out for 177.
St George sit second on the ladder with seven wins a three draws from their 10 games.
Shurmer currently has a batting average of 40.1 for the season.
