D-grade run chase re­sults in win for Un­dera

The Tatura Guardian - - Sport -

Evan Hedges and Rick Heathcote res­cued Un­dera in a suc­cess­ful chase against Murchi­son in Sat­ur­day’s rain-marred SJ Perry Shield D-grade ac­tion.

Re­sum­ing at 4-60 chas­ing 117, Un­dera ap­peared doomed when it fell to 7-97.

How­ever, Hedges (57) and Heathcote (52 not out) put on 100 runs for the eighth wicket to steer Un­dera to vic­tory be­fore its in­nings was de­clared at 9-214.

Ja­son Har­man (4-71) and Shan­non Broad­bent (4-57) did the dam­age with the ball for Murchi­son.

Murchi­son then reached 3-144 off 44 overs bat­ting a sec­ond time, with Bran­dan Reilly (59) scor­ing the ex­act same amount of runs he made on day one.

Kar­ramo­mus earned a 24-run win against Shep­par­ton United, bowl­ing the home side out for 198 in re­ply to 222.

Tony Rowan (3-41) and In­der Singh (2-25) were the most pro­lific bowlers for the Bloods.

Wet weather washed out the sec­ond day of the round’s other three games.

In­ver­gor­don earned first in­nings points against Tat- ura on day one, but was de­nied the chance to push for an out­right re­sult.

Mean­while, Toolamba prob­a­bly feels for­tu­nate it could not re­sume at 3-30 chas­ing Euroa’s 249, while Nu­murkah (1-57) missed out on con­tin­u­ing its pur­suit of Mooroopna’s 127.

There was a thriller in the White­lock Shield E-grade com­pe­ti­tion, with Waaia pinch­ing a one-run upset from pre­vi­ously un­beaten top side Cen­tral Park-St Bren­dan’s.

Waaia was all out for 148 af­ter win­ning the toss at St Joseph’s Pri­mary School in Nu­murkah, with Xavier Schmedje tak­ing 3-30 for Cen­tral Park.

Opener Jack Hooper (43) con­tin­ued his strong bat­ting form for the Tigers, who had wick­ets in hand dur­ing the chase, but fell a run short at 6-147 af­ter a tense last over.

Cap­tain Ja­son Wild’s 49 was a high­light as Old Stu­dents (6-200) eas­ily ac­counted for Pine Lodge (78), while Stacey Loth­ian’s three wick­ets were in vain as Shep­par­ton United (8-112) lost to Kyabram (211).

Re­sults were un­avail­able in the Mooroopna vs Dhur­ringile match.

Ef­fort: Toolamba’s Luke Dabkowski’s 41 at num­ber 10 helped the chas­ingside reach triple fig­ures.
