Junior play continues
Junior Country Week under-15 cricket action kicked off in Horsham on Monday with eight representative teams across two pools vying to make the grand final.
Horsham Cricket Association suffered a first-up defeat to Warrnambool Blue at Horsham City Oval. The visitors benefited from 36 extras, including 15 wides and 16 byes, as they barely managed to overhaul Horsham’s total of 114 from 45 overs.
Wimmera-mallee also lost, to Warrnambool Gold, dismissed for 64 after it was set a huge target of 256.
Mount Gambier defeated Colac Gold and Colac Black downed Portland in other round one results.
The results of yesterday’s matches were not available when The Weekly Advertiser went to press.
