Alpine Observer - - Sport -

OVENS Val­ley United’s sea­son will end win­less and po­ten­tially with a wooden spoon with a fi­nal round thrash­ing at the hands of Beech­worth on the cards.

The Tigers, miss­ing a host of reg­u­lar play­ers, suf­fered a week one de­feat and will need to fight hard to avoid an out­right loss af­ter the Wan­derer’s bowled them out for 88 and chalked up 4/127 in re­ply.

Only wick­et­keeper An­drew Newton made dou­ble fig­ures for the Tigers with his 49 com­ing off just 53 balls while blast­ing 10 bound­aries.

Newton had the Tigers off to a good start at 1/60 but once his dis­missal was fol­lowed by a fi rst ball duck to James Neary the col­lapse be­gan.

The Tigers lost 9/28 to be all out in just 32.3 overs af­ter win­ning the toss and bat­ting.

Beech­worth cruised past the to­tal with Camp­bell Fendyk mak­ing an un­beaten 38.

An­drew Newton added to his strong in­di­vid­ual per­for­mance re­mov­ing the gloves to snare 2/18.

Will MacLean play­ing in his first A grade game for the year also grabbed a wicket to finish with 1/35 off 8 overs.
