Nu­murkah just too strong for Ky

Kyabram Free Press - - SPORT -

THE third-round match of the As­so­ci­a­tion Cro­quet Pen­nant was played at Kyabram last week against Nu­murkah.

In the dou­bles, Kyabram’s He­len Hastie and An­neliese Met­zger had a close en­counter with the Nu­murkah pair of Louise Vale and Lea Grant. The vis­i­tors made the first move to run hoops un­til Hastie got in and made a 9-hoop break. This gave the home side a good lead, which they were able to hold through­out the game tak­ing the set 14 hoops to 12.

The first sin­gles be­tween Hastie and Vale proved a real con­test. Vale made a break of 9 hoops then Hastie re­tal­i­ated with an­other 9-hoop break. The lead was in Vale’s favour through­out the game, but with an­other 7-hoop break Hastie came within a hoop of her op­po­nent. In the dy­ing min­utes Vale man­aged 2 more hoops to take the set 19 hoops to 16.

The sec­ond sin­gles be­tween Met­zger and Grant started out an even con­test but as time went along Grant proved too strong and won the set 19 hoops to 7.

Nu­murkah won the day 2 games 50 hoops to Kyabram 1 game 37 hoops.

The Kyabram team travel to Mooroopna this week.
