Euroa has some chas­ing to do against Shep­par­ton

Euroa Gazette - - SPORTS - By EMMA KUBEIL

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.
