Euroa Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - By DION GRANT

EUROA re­turned to play Kyabram, in the sec­ond in­nings, at the Me­mo­rial Oval on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 22.

Overnight the Kyabram boys made the call to de­clare just six wick­ets down and 51 runs in front and to send Euroa into bat again.

Brothers, Justin (25) and Ash El­lis (14) opened the bat­ting for the first time ever in a match.

K Robert­son (22) bat­tled hard at num­ber three, bat­ting for a to­tal of 145 min­utes as wick­ets fell around him.

Euroa man­aged to get ahead by 44 runs but it just wasn’t enough.

Early wick­ets to Nick and Ri­ley Dow­ell and a spec­tac­u­lar run out from A El­lis gave Euroa a glim­mer of hope.

In the end Kyabram passed the runs com­fort­ably with just the three wick­ets down.

This week Euroa travel to Tal­ly­ga­roopna to play North­ern­ers.
