MERTON CRICKET CLUB

Euroa Gazette - - SPORTS - By RO­HAN BERRIMAN

ON Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 23, 10 ladies played a par round for the monthly medal.

It looked like rain so we played in twos, got in early and beat the rain so then we set up for our pre­sen­ta­tion night.

The monthly medal was won by Jenny Jeong the only player with a plus one score.

Lynne McLean won the ex­tra nine hole event on a count back from Ronda Richards, J Jeong and Jo Goodacre all with mi­nus two.

Balls down the line for 18 holes went to J Jeong, Judi Red­fern and Jo Goodacre all on three.

The nine hole balls went to L McLean, R Richards and J Jeong with mi­nus two on a count back from J Goodacre.

Near­est the pin on the 16th went to J Jeong.

Novem­ber 30 will be a sta­ble­ford round and De­cem­ber 7 will be stroke event and the next monthly medal.

The chicken run on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 24 saw a great field of 27 play­ers again for a par round.

A four way count back was needed to de­cide the win­ner, with Joffa Mills com­ing out on top against Phil Deane, Bob Nor­ris, Ronda Richards and Bill Le­vis­ton all on square.

Next week will be a stroke round on the back nine.

Fri­day, Novem­ber 25 was the club’s pre­sen­ta­tion night and it was great to see the club­house full.

Our band of ‘Touch and Go’ was great en­ter­tain­ers with ev­ery­one en­joy­ing the danc­ing and the meal by Jo and Pina.

The 40 club raf­fle was drawn with the win­ner be­ing Barry Cryer and Brad Mor­gan.

AF­TER a strong vic­tory on Novem­ber 12 over the Roy­als, Merton took on last year’s pre­miers at the Merton Cricket Ground (MCG) on Satur­day, Novem­ber 19.

Merton bat­ted first and made 6/194 with Aaron Place, Adrian Ziedens and Chris An­der­son all mak­ing runs.

Broad­ford were in trou­ble at 4/50, how­ever the mid­dle or­der bat­ted well and turned the game into a real bat­tle.

The vis­i­tors showed their ex­pe­ri­ence by win­ning the match in the last over with four balls to spare.

Merton played at home again this week against Tal­la­rook.
