Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Classies -

In the top of the ta­ble clash, Yar­ra­wonga Mul­wala has been beaten by City Colts at Barr Re­serve in Wan­garatta. Los­ing the toss, the Lak­ers fielded first and with a fast out­field the Colts made the Lak­ers pay for any­thing loose.

An open­ing stand by Colts of 57 had the Lak­ers be­hind the eight ball with 11 wides not help­ing the cause. The first wicket came from Ben Welsh, who was cat like with a di­rect hit run out.

How­ever City Colts English im­port came to the crease and hit the Lak­ers bowlers to most parts of the ground, with his re­verse sweep­ing con­tribut­ing nine bound­aries in a 77 run part­ner­ship. YMCC Lak­ers best bowler Corey McIn­tosh struck to break the part­ner­ship with the score on 144. The Lak­ers were able to dou­ble up with a Will Sharp di­rect hit run out see­ing Colts at 3/144.

An­other part­ner­ship of 37, al­lowed Colts to take the as­cen­dancy be­fore Will Sharp struck re­mov­ing Jones for 78. Spin­ner Brock McCabe bowled well to re­move Adams who was stumped su­perbly by Reid Clarke. The com­pul­sory close came af­ter a run out from Zach Moore saw the Colts fin­ish on 6/94.

The Lak­ers best bowlers were McCabe with 1/22 off 6, Corey McIn­tosh 1/25 of 8 and Will Sharp 1/37 off 7 overs.

The Yar­ra­wonga Mul­wala side needed a good start but the open­ers were back in the pav­il­ion with the score at 8 and 15. Con­sec­u­tive part­ner­ships of 22 and 27 saw the Lak­ers at 4/64. Corey McIn­tosh weath­ered the Colts bowl­ing to make 27 be­fore be­ing dis­missed and the score was 5/78. Just three runs later the Lak­ers lost Clarke and McCabe to stum­ble to 7/81. Will Sharp was run out in a mix up which brought An­gus McMil­lan to the crease joined by John Fer­gu­son who part­nered for 9 runs and then Brady Bartlett joined McMil­lan to score 29 runs com­bined be­fore McMil­lan was dis­missed for a team high 35 runs. Bartlett was 17 not out.

A 53 run loss to City Colts should serve as mo­ti­va­tion go­ing for­ward; with po­si­tions in the team at a pre­mium. A home clash against De­latite this Satur­day at Stan Har­g­reaves Oval is the chance to atone for pre­vi­ous per­for­mances.
