Dees keep sea­son alive

Southern Riverina news - - SPORT -

Jer­ilderie kept their Mur­ray Val­ley Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion Divi­sion Two fi­nals hopes alive with a five-wicket win over Co­bram-Yar­roweyah United at Scott Oval, Co­bram, on Satur­day.

On win­ning the toss Jer­ilderie sent CYU into bat, im­me­di­ately hav­ing the home side in trou­ble when Dy­lan Hen­ery (4/5 off seven) cleaned up the wicket of J Jones with the sec­ond ball of the day.

CYU ral­lied, tak­ing the long han­dle to Alex A’Vard (0/21 off one) which saw the com­bine’s score scoot along to 30 be­fore Hen­ery struck again, dis­miss­ing Josh Goldswor­thy who had made a quick-fire 16.

Ja­cob Bo­valino didn’t trou­ble the scorer, and when Matt Betts also went quickly, CYU were in deep trou­ble at 5/38.

The Demons con­tin­ued their dom­i­nance with the ball, and with the com­bine’s tail fail­ing to wag they fin­ished all out for 68 in the 29th over.

Apart from Goldswor­thy the only other bats­man for CYU to reach dou­ble fig­ures was Scott Daly, who made 12.

While Hen­ery starred with the ball, Robert Mar­shall also fin­ish as a mul­ti­ple wicket-taker for Jer­ilderie, snar­ing two wick­ets for eight runs from 4.1 overs.

Grant Smith also had a big im­pact on the game in the field, ef­fect­ing two run outs and tak­ing a catch.

Jer­ilderie bats­men made hard work of chas­ing down CYU’s to­tal with Hen­ery (five) and Smith (six) fall­ing cheaply be­fore Mitch A’Vard stead­ied the ship, to be 21 not out when they passed the home side’s score.

Adam Boag chipped in with 13 runs and Luke Keat­ing added 11 to help the visi­tors to vic­tory.

Brad Church was CYU’s most suc­cess­ful bowler, tak­ing 2/7 off his six overs.

This week Jer­ilderie take on Kata­matite at Monash Park, in their fi­nal match for the home and away sea­son.

It’s a must-win sit­u­a­tion for the Demons, with a vic­tory over the sec­ond placed Tigers see­ing them still a chance to play fi­nals if other re­sults go their way.
