Seymour Telegraph - - SPORT - By Gus McCub­bing

B-GRADE Eastern Hill v Tal­la­rook

Eastern Hill con­sol­i­dated its spot in the top six of the B-grade com­pe­ti­tion with a strong win against Tal­la­rook on Satur­day.

De­spite some early wick­ets from Tal­la­rook’s dan­ger man Dale Short (4-25 off nine overs), Eastern Hill soon wrested con­trol back from the vis­it­ing side.

Their in­nings was set up by Michael Brown (52) and cap­tain Dal­las Ber­gow­icz, who smashed 12 bound­aries on the way to a mam­moth 95 runs.

Glen Lo­raine also made 24 runs for Eastern Hill, while Tal­la­rook’s Adam Howard took 2-20 off nine overs.

Chas­ing a hefty to­tal, Tal­la­rook then strug­gled with the bat, with cap­tain Dale Short (24) and tailen­der Mitchell It­ter (22) the high­est scor­ers.

Izaac Feery al­most equalled his best bowl­ing fig­ures by tak­ing 4-29, while Hay­den Szczykul­ski took 2-21 and Tyler Pea­cock fin­ished with 2-25 off their nine overs.

Sey­mour v Puck­a­pun­yal

Sey­mour re­mains on top of the lad­der af­ter a five-wicket vic­tory against Puck­a­pun­yal at Chittick Park.

While the vis­i­tors won the toss and elected to bat, they could not com­plete their 40 overs and were bowled out for 82 runs.

Puck­a­pun­yal was ripped apart by Sey­mour’s Joseph Pol­lock (4-15 with five maid­ens) and Si­mon van Duinen (5-12 with four maid­ens).

Then, led by cap­tain Michael Wold­huis (26), James Noonan (16) and Lovepreet Singh (15), the home side cruised to vic­tory with five wick­ets in hand.

Mean­while the Roy­als went down to Pya­long by six wick­ets, Flow­erdale lost to Alexan­dra in a high-scor­ing con­test by 62 runs, Kil­more de­feated Avenel by eight wick­ets, and Broad­ford beat Yea Tigers by seven wick­ets.

C-GRADE Puck­a­pun­yal Wan­der­ers v Sey­mour Ma­roon

Sey­mour Ma­roon was sent in to bat and posted a solid to­tal de­spite fail­ing to com­plete its al­lot­ted overs.

While the vis­i­tors were at one point un­der heavy pres­sure at 5-36, Danny Foun­tain (45) and Tom Mc­Cooey (27) turned things around.

Puck­a­pun­yal Wan­der­ers’ bats­men were then wiped out by Dan McLarty, who recorded his best bowl­ing fig­ures with 4-3 off eight overs, and Steve Bruce who fin­ished with 3-18 off seven overs.

Sey­mour Ma­roon is now on the cusp of C-Grade’s top four, while the loss leaves the Wan­der­ers eighth on the lad­der.

Broad­ford Black v Kil­more

A dom­i­nant dis­play by one of the Broad­ford side’s open­ing bats­man, Matt Clay­ton, set up a strong win over Kil­more at Broad­ford Sec.

Clay­ton fin­ished the in­nings un­beaten on 96 runs, just run­ning out of time to nab a cen­tury, while Nick Si­mons nearly equalled his best with 43 runs.

Kil­more man­aged to put up a strong fight in their in­nings, but even­tu­ally fell well short of their 177-run chase.

Bren­ton Smith was the best bowler on the day for Broad­ford Black, tak­ing 4-21 off eight overs, with the home side’s first win of the sea­son lift­ing them to sev­enth place on the lad­der.
