A Grade failed in their run chase going down by 76 runs in their clash with Ovens Valley United at Ball Park.
Resuming at 0 for 28 chasing 247, the Roos were in trouble early with the wicket having a bit in it as the side fell to 4 for 56 with only Nathan Rhodes (31) coming to terms with wicket.
Matt Grantham (21) and Luke Melville worked hard and the runs started to flow but when the Roos lost Grantham and then Tom Miegel (7) to be 6 for 112 it looked as though the side would collapse like in previous weeks.
However Melville fought hard with a good half century (51) before his innings came to an end.
The lower order fought it out with Brad Bartlett (11) and Jacob Bartlett (10*) adding valuable runs as the Roos were bowled out in the 69th over for 171.
With still 13 overs left in the day the Roos returned to the bowling crease as 9 bowlers were used as Ovens Valley finished the day at 3 for 88 with wickets going to Tom Miegel, Jacob Bartlett and Kaelan Bradtke.
The team has a bye for the next two weeks.
B Grade had their third win of the season with a comfortable win over Rutherglen at Barkley Park. After restricting Rutherglen to 142 last week the Roos lost John Schnelle (3) early to be 1 for 8. Shane Norman and Matt Wilson then got the scoring going, moving it to 64 in the 16th over before Norman went for 44.
Greg Burgess joined Wilson and the runs continued to flow until Wilson (21) went with the score on 83 and Burgess (22) went shortly after with the score at 91.
When Luke Backhouse was dismissed for a duck, the Roos looked shaky at 5 for 108.
But Captain Scott Wilson and Will Chandler had no dramas as they passed the score in the 38th over as the Roos went to afternoon tea at 5 for 155 off 40 overs.
A promising innings of 43 came to an end for Chandler straight after the tea break and when Jack Bartlett went for 2 the innings looked like it might end soon.
But veterans Wilson and Rod Gulliver had other ideas as they added 60 runs before Gulliver went for 23.
Wilson was outstanding making 77 before retiring hurt allowing John Backhouse a couple of overs at the crease were he outscored his son making 1 not out while Josh Tidd made his highest score in senior cricket with 10 not out as the Roos finished their 68 overs at 8 for 255.
C Grade had a win via a forfeit from Harrietville.
The Roos have won the derby between the two Under 16s sides, chasing down the Joeys 116.
The Roos lost Will Chandler for 9 to Mak Lavis with the score at 28.
Tight bowling made it hard work for the Roos with the Joeys making the Roos earn every run but the Joeys couldn’t get the breakthrough as Jacob Bartlett (54*) and Kaelan Bradtke (31) got the Roos within one run of victory before Bradkte was dismissed.
Cam Wilson (20) and Luke Backhouse (17*) hit out in the last few overs as the Roos finished their 42 overs at 4 for 170.
Patrick Blain bowled well for 0 for 8 off his 6 overs while Lavis took 2 for 23.
