Century-plus partnershi­ps


Saturday’s Grampians Cricket Associatio­n matches produced another round of predictabl­e results.

Rhymney-moyston 1 defeated fellow team Rhymney-moyston 2, with the feature of this match the recording of century-plus partnershi­ps from both sides.

Previously, both teams had struggled for runs, but thanks to a 116-run stand between Wayne Gason, 51, and Trevor Quick, 58, Rhymston 2 recorded a creditable 3-148.

However, Rhymston 1 replied with 1-159 due to a 117-run partnershi­p between the two Daniels, Daniel Walker, 71 not out, and Daniel Taylor, 58. All bowlers found wickets hard to come by.

At Pomonal, the Tigers were restricted to an average score of 8-149 against Combine 2, but their bowlers ripped through the Combine’s batters for just 31 runs.

Gary Ranton, 3-5, and Tom Robinson, 3-28, were the best of the bowlers for the Combine.

When their turn at the crease came, the Combine could not hold out. Only Robinson, 22, made double figures.

St Andrews hit their straps against Halls Gap 2, recording a 191-run victory at Halls Gap.

Unfortunat­ely, Pomonal and St Andrews failed to enter their scoresheet­s by the prescribed time and were unavailabl­e at the time of writing this cricket summary. The leading run-scorer for the Gappers was Luke Stevens with 53.

This weekend’s round will feature Halls Gap 1 against Swifts-great Western 1 at Halls Gap.

Halls Gap will be at a disadvanta­ge, having only played one match so far. Much will depend on Charlie Mcintosh and co to post a reasonable score for their bowlers to work with, which means overcoming Wil Clough, Matt Heffer and Brad Carter.

While the Combine’s batting is not as strong as previous seasons, there are still some handy batters in their team.

Rhymston 1 is due to play Chalambar and it is hoped Chally will be able to field a team this week.

Pomonal should be able to maintain its winning run against Rhymston 2, although Rhymston’s batting was much better this round and a repeat will worry the Tigers. Round-three results: Rhymney-moyston 1, 1-159 d Rhymey-moyston 2, 3-148; Swifts-great Western 1 d Chalambar on forfeit; Pomonal, 8-149 d Swifts-great Western 2, 10-31; St Andrews, 9-283 d Halls Gap 2, 9-112.
