Corowa Cricket

The Free Press (Corowa) - - CLASSIES (03) -

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

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

C Grade had a win via a for­feit from Har­ri­etville.

Un­der 16s

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.
