Team went down like skittles in defeat
Murchison let just one Central Park-St Brendan’s batsman reach double figures in its comprehensive Jim McGregor Shield C-grade victory on Saturday.
Although Tigers opener Andrew McMillan stayed at the crease the whole innings for an unbeaten 69, the rest of his team-mates fell like skittles.
Chasing 190, Central Park just managed to cross into triple figures before its innings was ended on 107 from 53 overs.
Ben Twynstra is yet to fail with the ball this year and added another three scalps, with half of his eight overs maidens.
Darren Rowney also stood up in Murchison’s attack, taking the early wickets of Nick Younghusband and Peter Hogeboom.
Callan Mears raised the bat for a half-century, but the Karramomus batsman could not bring his side a win against Mooroopna.
The Bloods were set the task of 167, but fell 45 runs short.
Cats bowler Daniel Emmi was busy in the attack and took his second four-wicket haul for the year.
On Saturday he struck the middle order and Karramomus could not recover from him taking 3-18.
A solid start from Nagambie helped it to first innings points against Pine Lodge in a low-scoring match.
The Lodgers made 81 runs on day one and with the Lakers 4-64 when play resumed, Will Ulrich’s 21 was the top score of the innings as his side reached 105.
Devinder Singh was sensational with the ball for Pine Lodge and claimed 5-22 as his side went back in to bat before declaring at 5-98 to have another crack at its opposition.
But despite another impressive effort from Singh, who this time took six scalps, time ran out for Pine Lodge to turn the match back its way.
