Jin­di­vick Black ce­ment top spot

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - WDCA CRICKET 2018-2019 SEASON -

with a bound­ary laden 45 (five fours and three sixes) be­fore edg­ing one through to the keeper.

Urie was more cir­cum­spect on his way to top-scor­ing with 60 but with a lack of sup­port from the lower or­der the home side found them­selves well short of the re­quired runs when they were all out af­ter 39 overs.

Jack Brad­dick ripped through the Ea­gles top or­der to fin­ish with 3/37 while from the other end Gor­don Win­stone chimed in with a miserly 2/16 off eight overs. Shane Hoskins (2/47) and James Maguire (2/25) were the pick of the change bowlers.

Gold take the points

Jin­di­vick Gold 4/85 def Hal­lora 10/83 It was an early fin­ish in the clash be­tween Hal­lora and Jin­di­vick Gold, with the Jump­ing Jacks mak­ing light work of the mea­gre tar­get set by the Kan­gas.

Opt­ing to send the vis­i­tor in, Jin­di­vick quickly gained the up­per hand as a suc­ces­sion of wick­ets saw Hal­lora lose 4/34.

Daniel Sell ral­lied for his side with a rapid 31 (six fours) but with 21 from Daniel Si­mons the only other dou­ble fig­ure score, the Kan­gas were all out af­ter just 20 overs for 83.

Peter Shea (2/19) and Jeremy Hill (2/25) did the early work with the new ball be­fore a dy­namic re­turn from Jess Sanders saw her claim 4/21 off six overs. Mick Gnaden chipped in with 2/14 despite hav­ing a few is­sues with the radar.

In re­ply, Ben Giles (14) and Michael Buzasi (20) both made good starts, paving the way for Tim Jef­frey to wrap things up with 35 not out as the home side ran out easy vic­tor af­ter 18 overs.

Gary Donoghue was the pick of the bowlers snar­ing 2/3 off three overs.

Gulls hold their nerve

War­ragul 7/162 (cc) def Drouin 5/161 (cc) War­ragul has held its nerve to de­feat Drouin by a sin­gle run.

Choos­ing to bat first, the Gulls strug­gled to build part­ner­ships but were able to keep the score­board tick­ing over at a good rate.

Aman­deep Singh (28) led from the top of the or­der but it was Lach­lan Wa­ters who an­chored the in­nings with a gutsy 56 not out that in­cluded 10 bound­aries. In his first senior match Dy­lan Gen­tile fin­ished with 28 not out as the home side saw out their al­lot­ted overs.

Sam Bar­wick was the chief wicket taker with 3/16 but the pick of the bowlers was Jesse Craig, who snared 2/11 off eight overs which in­cluded four maid­ens.

In re­ply, the Hawks looked in con­trol for much of their chase with War­ragul strug­gling to make a break­through.

Daniel Burke (21) and Lochie Downie (27) both made good starts and a valu­able 33 from Bar­wick kept the mo­men­tum go­ing.

A handy spell from Paul Singh (2/22) en­sured a tight fin­ish and despite the best ef­forts of Craig (24*), the vis­i­tor couldn’t quite get there.

Liam Bow picked up both open­ers to fin­ish with 2/22.
