Demons tum­ble to fourth place CRICKET

Myrtleford Times - - SPORT -

DED­ERANG has slipped from se­cond to fourth on the Cricket Al­bury Wodonga district lad­der af­ter los­ing to Bar­nawartha Chiltern and will now face Kiewa in a semi-fi­nal matchup this week­end.

Miss­ing cap­tain An­drew Creamer the Demons were un­able to chase down the re­quired 193 in their round 10 en­counter with the Min­ers.

Af­ter find­ing them­selves 6/27 things did get bet­ter for the Demons as Cameron Gregg (37), and Ben Greer (29) and then Josh McNeil (37) all dug deep.

When Gregg and McNeil were at the crease the Demons were still a chance but when McNeil fell at 143 Gregg shortly fol­lowed, bring­ing an end to the in­nings.

With plenty of overs still left in the day the Min­ers bat­ted again and were all out for 113 with Blake Nikolic tak­ing (4/38) but there were far few overs for the Demons to chase an out­right vic­tory.

Af­ter only two wins in the 2014-15 sea­son Ded­erang re­turns to the fi­nals on the back of a seven win sea­son and held top spot for a num­ber of weeks.

They play away at Kiewa.
