Tatura holds on with ball for win

Euroa close with late runs, but not enough

Euroa Gazette - - GAZETTE SPORTS -

EUROA hosted Tatura at the Memo­rial Oval on a beau­ti­ful sunny day on Satur­day.

Euroa lost the toss and bowled first.

Euroa open­ers, Fletcher Paul and Paul Allen, opened the bowl­ing with P Allen get­ting an early wicket.

Ri­ley Dow­ell was able to rip through the mid­dle or­der tak­ing 3/17.

Mul­ti­ple wick­ets to P Allen (2) and D Grant (2) helped end the Tatura in­nings.

M Glee­son and F Paul opened the bat­ting but were quick to fall for one and 13 re­spec­tively.

R Baig was able to steady the ship at num­ber three with a fine 28 runs as wick­ets fell around him.

Late or­der runs from P Allen (16) and A Wright (36*) helped Euroa get close to the to­tal but they fell just short.

Next Satur­day Euroa B Grade takes on Old Stu­dents at Kialla.
