Cooma tames Tigers bats­men

Campaspe News - - LOCAL CLASSIES - — Ben Carter

ROCHESTER Tigers lost at home to a side rather in the as­cen­dancy in Goul­burn Mur­ray A grade cricket, and now find them­selves sit­ting eighth on the lad­der, be­low Echuca.

And it doesn’t get any eas­ier next week­end as a po­ten­tially tricky trip to Ton­gala awaits.

Not for the first time this sum­mer Cooma’s bat­ting was a high­light, with the vis­i­tors mak­ing 9/317 at Win­dridge Oval on day one be­fore bowl­ing out the Tigers for 162.

The lo­cals used nine bowlers to try and find a bet­ter pace of break­throughs on the first day’s play be­fore Chris Hol­l­i­day man­aged to hit 74 runs in the re­ply.

Ear­lier he’d taken 4/76 with the ball to clearly fin­ish as the Tigers’ best in­di­vid­ual per­former.

Un­for­tu­nately the home team lost their last six bats­men for 63.
