Team went down like skit­tles in de­feat

The Tatura Guardian - - Sport -

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.
