For­get­table day for Corowa

A Grade

Scores: Corowa 62 (23.3 overs) – J Bar­ber 4/16, A Mor­ri­son 3/11, S Good­win 3/17 def by Kiewa 4/66 (12.2 overs) – D Athani­tis 3/14.

Corowa ven­tured to the pic­turesque Kiewa ground on Satur­day to take on the much im­proved Hawks. A com­pre­hen­sive win in the first round for both teams en­sured a tight con­test – that was the hope any­way. Af­ter be­ing sent in and pro­ceed­ing to lose 5/24 it was go­ing to take a mam­moth ef­fort to get the game back in the bal­ance for the Roos. It is al­ways go­ing to be hard to win when there are three ducks from your top six. Re­sis­tance from cap­tain Dan Athani­tis (22) was the only respite from the damp wicket and good bowl­ing. Af­ter only 23 overs the Roos were put out of their mis­ery; bowled out for 62. Five ducks in all and ex­tras be­ing sec­ond top score with 18 sums up the day. The for­get­table day for Corowa was at least quick with the Hawks reach­ing the miserly to­tal in only 12 overs. Again Dan Athani­tis pro­vided fight in cap­tur­ing 3/14 but it was all in vain. Re­demp­tion is only a week away with this year’s one day fix­ture as we take on the al­ways dan­ger­ous Mt Beauty at Ball Park. Let’s hope it all turns around next week.

A chance­less cen­tury by Doug Lavis has led B Grade to a big win against Kiewa in their clash at Ball Park.

Bat­ting first, a re­turn­ing Aaron Phibbs and Michael Lin­klater added 30 runs be­fore Phibbs went for 17, and when Luke Heag­ney went shortly af­ter the Roos were 2 for 31 when the rain came.

Af­ter the rain break Doug Lavis put on a bat­ting mas­ter class as he and Lin­klater moved the score to 66 be­fore Lin­klater went for 21.

The game was taken away from Kiewa as Bai­ley Minogue joined Lavis and these two bat­ted su­perbly adding 107 runs be­fore Minogue’s went for 33.

Lavis con­tin­ued to a cen­tury as Corowa fin­ished their 40 overs at 5 for 213. Lavis’ in­nings of 119 not out was laced with 11 bound­aries.

In re­ply, Kiewa strug­gled against Gabby Sut­cliffe’s great line as she re­duced Kiewa to 2 for 23. Aaron Phibbs made the ball talk as he col­lected two wick­ets as Kiewa fell to 4 for 78.

At 4 for 106 af­ter 29 overs, Kiewa looked like bat­ting their overs out, but Scott Wil­son and Ryan Ey­ers ran through the bat­ting lineup as Kiewa was dis­missed for 119.

Four bowlers took 2 wick­ets with Ey­ers tak­ing 2 for 1, Sut­cliffe 2 for 13, Phibbs 2 for 16 and Wil­son 2 for 16 as Corowa ran out win­ners by 94 runs.

This week sees the side take on Mount Beauty at Mount Beauty.

C Grade’s sea­son started, but went down by 22 runs in their clash against Lav­ing­ton Red at Mor­ris Park.

Bowl­ing first, Corowa held Lav­ing­ton early with Liam McDonell and Danny Os­borne bowl­ing well as Lav­ing made it to 3 for 46 by the 20-over half-way mark.

Lah Suren­dran bowled well as he col­lected 3for 25 off his 8 overs, but some late hit­ting by Tim San­son en­able Lav­ing­ton to fin­ish their 40 overs at 8 for 153. Josh Bartlett also bowled well to take 2 for 15 off 6 overs.

In the chase the Roos lost Liam McDonell early but Liam Carter and Jed Long­mire pushed the score along to 74 be­fore Long­mire went for a well made 31.

At 3 for 116 the Roos looked in a strong po­si­tion but when Josh Bartlett went for 22, and then Carter went shortly af­ter for the in­nings’ top score of 46, the Roos’ in­nings fell apart as the Roos were dis­missed for 131.

This week sees the side take on New City at Nor­ris Park.
