Euroa has some chasing to do against Shepparton
FOR my dedicated readers, apologies for no write up last week and leaving you in suspense on what happened in day two against Numurkah.
Scores: Euroa 7/ 141 defeated Numurkah 10/127
It was Euroa’s week to field and all the balls aligned for the Hill brothers, with Lachie taking a hat trick and Ryan taking his first wicket.
Well done to all, so now on to this week’s play.
It was day one with Euroa against Shepparton United Blue when Euroa won the toss and elected to field.
Andrew Crosbie opened the bowling and Shepparton started off steadily, when they scored a few singles and double runs throughout the first half of the game.
Zac Williams bowled second and his style was reminiscent to the spectators to that of a young Gavin Williams.
Zac bowled seven overs for the day with a maiden in his first and fifth over.
Drinks came and we’re not sure what happened at this point but two lads from Shepparton came out blazing, Harry Young and Ethan McLaren, who were in top form both hitting numerous fours and a six to both.
The wickets took some time to fall.
Euroa did not take the first until the 23rd over when Declan Redfern bowled and Tom Panuccio was new to the keeping position.
Watts was stumped by Panuccio after the 73rd run.
Confidence lifted and shortly after, the next wicket fell while Lachie Hill was bowling with Angus Lake being caught behind by the new keeper Panuccio.
Andrew Crosbie came back to the wicket and bowled a nice strong ball which sent a Shepparton player at the crease out for a duck.
What came next for Shepparton was nothing but great batting determination, sending every bowler in Euroa’s team for cover.
Shepparton moved through the remaining overs only losing a few more wickets to end the day on 7/ 215.
The Euroa team will certainly have some chasing to do next week, so come on down to the memorial in the cool of the day with the game commencing at 8.15am.
