A Grade on the back foot

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

A Grade suf­fered their third-straight de­feat af­ter go­ing down by 11 runs to Bar­nawartha/ Chiltern in their clash at Bar­nawartha. C Grade

With a hand­ful of play­ers un­avail­able, young­ster Ryan Bev­eridge made his de­but and vet­er­ans Scott Wil­son and Shane Nor­man came in to help out.

Los­ing the toss, the Roos were asked to bowl first. Matt Gran­tham and Joe Hansen made early break­throughs to have the Min­ers at 2/16. The Min­ers bat­ted sen­si­bly, push­ing the score to 57 be­fore Daniel Athani­tis struck in his first over.

The Min­ers of­fered some chances but the Roos didn’t take them, as the Min­ers got into a strong po­si­tion at 3/126 with eight overs re­main­ing.

Joe Hansen bowled well to take two more wick­ets and Kae­lan Bradtke took three wick­ets but the Min­ers were able to score an­other 45 runs as they fin­ished their 45 overs at 8/171.

Hansen bowled well to take 3/30 off eight overs, while Bradtke took 3/47 off his nine overs. Spin­ners Daniel Athani­tis and Luke Back­house bowled with­out luck to take 1/20 and 0/28 re­spec­tively off their nine overs.

In re­ply, Shane Nor­man was lost early for six, with the Roos stuck on 1/8. Nathan Rhodes looked com­fort­able as he pushed the score along to 39 be­fore he went out for 25.

But with his dis­missal, the Roos lost an­other two quick wick­ets to fall 4/42. Young­ster Jor­dan Ey­ers (27) and Ryan Bev­eridge (13) bat­ted sen­si­bly adding 60 valu­able runs but when both were dis­missed with the score at 102, the Roos looked in trou­ble at 6/102 with 13 overs to go.

Some great run­ning be­tween the wick­ets by Bradtke and Hansen got the Roos to 155 be­fore Bradtke was caught on the bound­ary for 16.

Need­ing 13 off the last over, Hansen was run out for 14 as the Roos were dis­missed for 160.

The Roos have a very big game this week against Yackan­dan­dah at Ball Park. The team needs a win to get their sea­son back on track so get down and sup­port them this Satur­day.

C Grade had a hard-fought three-wicket vic­tory over North Al­bury in their clash at Ball Park.

With B Grade hav­ing the bye, the C graders were able to take the field at Ball Park. Bowl­ing first, all the bowlers bowled well with Danny Os­borne the pick of the bowlers tak­ing 3/11 off six overs. He was well sup­ported by Bai­ley Minogue with 2/18 and Darcy Melk­sham with 2/24 as the boys bowled out North Al­bury for 128 in the 35th over.

In re­ply, the Roos lost last week’s cen­tury maker Liam McDonell early along with Liam Carter and Darcy Melk­sham to be on 3/20.

Billy Raggett bat­ted well mak­ing 45 but when he was dis­missed, the Roos lost their way as they fell 7/89 with still 40 runs needed.

Young­sters Bai­ley Minogue and Lachy Raggett were the he­roes as they safely guided the team home, with Minogue mak­ing the match­win­ning 38 with Raggett also hold­ing up his end, mak­ing seven, and hand­ing the Roos vic­tory in the 30th over on a score of 7/131.

This week sees the side take on St Pa­tricks at Xavier Oval No. 2.
