Clear cut re­sults in Grampians

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport - BY ONE SHORT

Al­though round four is only half way over in Grampians Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion, you wouldn’t have to be ‘Lucky Phil’ to pick all four A Grade win­ners for the fix­ture.

All re­sults ap­pear clear cut and it is only by what mar­gins the wins will be that is in ques­tion.

The bat­tle be­tween first and sec­ond sees Swifts­great Western right on top of Youth Club.

Bat­ting first, Youth Club’s in­nings never re­ally got go­ing, be­ing dis­missed for 173.

The best of the Club­bers’ bats­men was Nick Baird, 49, and skip­per Cam Kim­ber, 45, who shared a 67-run part­ner­ship with Clin­ton Slo­rach, 22.

Com­bine bowlers to do the dam­age were Matt Hef­fer, five wick­ets, and Brady Miller, four.

In re­ply, the Com­bine ended on 1-133 just 40 runs be­hind with nine wick­ets in hand.

Youth Club would be well ad­vised to keep tak­ing wick­ets, be­cause his­tory shows the Com­bine will keep bat­ting.

A poor Pomonal first in­nings has put the Tigers in dan­ger of suf­fer­ing an out­right loss to Buan­gor. Pomonal could man­age only 84 in its first dig, with the main de­stroy­ers for Buan­gor be­ing Chris Jer­ram and Cal­lum Baker who took three wick­ets each.

In re­ply, Buan­gor has reached 8-171, a lead of 87 thanks to Jack Gan­ley’s hard-hit­ting 76, and


will be sensing an op­por­tu­nity to jump into the top four with an out­right re­sult.

An­other team look­ing for out­right points is Taty­oon, which posted 312 runs be­fore hav­ing Halls Gap 5-21. The Hawks have 75 overs to take 15 wick­ets, with 291 runs up their sleeve.

Skip­per Michael Har­ricks al­ready has the re­mark­able bowl­ing fig­ures of 7-6-1-4.

Ear­lier, the Taty­oon in­nings was an­chored by a cen­tury from opener Andrew Mc­dou­gal, 104, and a half cen­tury from Owen Kean.

The only Gap­pers bowlers to make any im­pres­sion were Jedd Gay and Char­lie Mcin­tosh with two wick­ets each.

Halls Gap will re­ally have a fight on its hands this Satur­day.

Aradale posted a re­spectable 6-280 in its game against Navarre, which will fully test its op­po­nents’ bat­ting strength.

Aradale’s in­nings was boosted by an in­nings of 80 from Scotty Turner and a handy 42 from Tyler Cronin. Navarre can be ex­pected to bat for most of the day, but 280 runs might be be­yond them.

Last Sun­day was the first round of an in­ter-re­gional un­der-21 com­pe­ti­tion, where Cen­tral High­lands took on North East Coun­try at Castle­maine.

Al­though Cen­tral High­lands was soundly beaten, Chris Jer­ram top-scored for the High­landers with 56 not out. For­mer Grampians player Harry Gan­ley opened the in­nings and scored 22.
