THE 2015/16 Wan­garatta and District cricket sea­son is over for Bright and Ovens Val­ley United ju­nior teams.

Un­for­tu­nately the lo­cal teams didn’t end the year the way they would have liked two weeks ago with all five teams los­ing their fi­nal round matches.

Ovens Val­ley United’s un­der 12s put in a good per­for­mance against the se­cond placed Rovers United Bruck Red but came up short.

Ni­cholas Blesser (18 not out), Tom Sparks (13) and Mar­cello Vescio (13) fin­ished their sea­sons well with the bat help­ing their team to 8/111.

In re­sponse RUBR made 3/131, Monique Martin, Toby Cos­sor and Sparks were the only wicket tak­ers for the young Tigers.

Bright’s un­der 12s were no match for third placed Greta Mi­lawa in their match at Wandiligon­g.

Cop­per Thoma­son con­tin­ued his good year with 17 while Cy Banks made 12 but Bright were all out for 84 while Greta Mi­lawa fin­ished on 5/210.

Mikka Paulsen, Ethan Bar­rett and Ethan White were the Bright bowlers to grab wick­ets.

Bright then bat­ted again and were 5/43 when the match ended.

Ovens Val­ley United’s un­der 14s also went down.

Af­ter Benalla Vi­o­let Town United made 5/162 the Tigers could only man­age 123 all out, with Jobe Brock mak­ing his first half cen­tury, fin­ish- ing 54 not out while Sa­muel Pi­azza scored 27.

Noah Bransden (2/20) and Molly McKib­bin (2/23) were the only mul­ti­ple wicket tak­ers when the Tigers bowled while Dy­lan Jones grabbed 1/28.

GOOD SEA­SON: Bright’s un­der 12 crick­eters un­for­tu­nately fin­ished their sea­son off with a loss at Wandiligon­g but there was plenty of im­prove­ment through­out the year and some strong per­for­mances as the sea­son went on.
