Com­bine vic­to­ri­ous

Southern Riverina news - - BERRIGAN GOLD CUP 2018 -

Finley/Jer­ilderie’s U16s Com­bine Cats con­tin­ued their fine form when they took on Tocumwal in round two of the Mur­ray Val­ley Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion on Fri­day.

Bat­ting first the Cats got into some early trou­ble, at one stage be­ing 5/27 in the 13th over.

Alex A’Vard (22) kept the score tick­ing over un­til he fell with the score on 33.

It was left to Ed Haynes (23 not out) and Will Sex­ton (17 not out) to guide the Com­bine Cats into safe ter­ri­tory.

The pair put on 45 to fin­ish the 20 overs 6/78.

The Cats had a job to do with the ball and they got a dou­ble break through to have Tocumwal 2/9 in the third over.

Jack An­drew (28) and Tom Barker (15) took the fight to the Cats bowlers putting on 50 and when Barker was dis­missed Tocumwal only needed 19 off five overs.

This would prove to be a lit­tle too much for the Bloods with some tight bowl­ing by Ben Neessen (1/4) and Shir­sho Roy (2/1) get­ting the Cats across the line by four runs.

There is a gen­eral bye this com­ing week­end for the Ber­ri­gan Cup, with games re­sum­ing on Novem­ber 10.

The U16s Com­bine Cats start their two day sec­tion of the draw play­ing host to Katunga on Novem­ber 8 and 15.

The Un­der 14s play host to Ber­ri­gan/ Jer­ilderie on Novem­ber 10 and 17.

The Bowl­ing Club are host­ing their Fri­day night fundraiser this week and the Finley Cricket Club are the nom­i­nated or­gan­i­sa­tion.

The Bowl­ing Club and Finley Cricket Club have had a long and proud his­tory to­gether and it would be great to see the bowlo decked out in blue FCC shirts this Fri­day night.
