Re­mark­able out­right re­sult in heroic ef­fort

The Tatura Guardian - - Sport -

Toolamba jumped to sec­ond on the Jim McGre­gor Shield C-grade lad­der af­ter pulling off a re­verse out­right vic­tory against Mooroopna on Sat­ur­day.

The Taipans started day two at Toolamba Re­cre­ation Re­serve on 7-45 chas­ing Mooroopna’s 140 and crum­bled to be all out for 105.

The chas­ing side would not have reached triple fig­ures if not for Luke Dabkowski’s 41 at num­ber 10.

Dabkowski then pro­duced more hero­ics with the ball, snar­ing 5-23 off 17 overs to rout Mooroopna for 62 in just 35 overs.

Mitch Turner also claimed 3-9, while Tim Wil­helms (17), Lo­gan Camp­bell (12) and Ben Woods (10) were the only Cats to score dou­ble fig­ures.

Ai­dan Cal­le­gari (23), cap­tain Greg Watts (21), Dabkowski (16) and El­liot Bai­ley (14 not out) steered Toolamba to 5-98 in 23 overs and a re­mark­able out­right re­sult.

Devin­der Singh’s five wick­ets en­sured Pine Lodge com­fort­ably de­fended 272 against Kar­ramo­mus.

Daniel Strud­wick (37) and An­drew Shields (21) were the best of eight Kar­ramo­mus bats­men who reached dou­ble fig­ures, but the in­abil­ity of any­one to con­vert their start into a big score left the chas­ing side all out for 186.

Singh took 5-20 off 15 overs, in­clud­ing nine maidens, and has 12 wick­ets in his past three games.

Un­beaten Pine Lodge moved two games clear on top of the lad­der with the vic­tory.

Rain dur­ing the week washed out the re­sump­tion of Nagam­bie’s chase against Murchi­son, while Tatura re­ceived a for­feit win from Kyabram on day one.
