Blues take con­trol against Bright

Alpine Observer - - Sport -

BRIGHT will finish on the bot­tom of A Re­serve lad­der in Wan­garatta and Dis­trict cricket af­ter fall­ing to a dis­ap­point­ing open­ing day loss against Greta.

The Wan­der­ers man­aged just 45 af­ter elect­ing to bat at Pi­o­neer Park on Saturday in their fi­nal game of a dis­ap­point­ing cam­paign.

A 16- run open­ing stand be­tween Dy­lan Bur­sill ( 7) and Harry Jamieson ( 7) was the biggest on a hor­rid day for Bright.

Some bad shot se­lec­tion brought about Bright’s down­fall with all but three bats­men out bowled.

El­liot Sheather ( 5/ 21) ripped through Bright’s top or­der dis­miss­ing five of the first six bats­men.

Two wick­ets each to Troy Simp­son and Mitchell Whee­lens and a run- out fin­ished off The Wan­der­ers’ dis­mal dis­play in just 33 overs in which sundries was the top score with eight.

Greta will re­sume at 6/ 130 af­ter Mick Barnard lead the vis­i­tor’s re­sponse with 72.

Sam Dal­bosco claimed his first wicket of the sea­son send­ing Barnard back late in the day, while Rueben Jamieson was the best of home team’s bowlers tak­ing 3/ 30 from 12 overs.

The first day result helped Greta lock up a fi­nals berth.
