Round 3 Results

A big weekend of cricket as the rain held off for a change and the Saturday comps finally got underway. The 1sts were looking for a big showing first up but couldn’t quite get the choccies, falling just short with 8/131 in response to Hampton’s 9/140. The 2nds pulled off a stunning win at Koornang, chasing Hampton’s 6/174 we were gone for all money before John Young (42*) and Ash Chawla (34*) steered us home with an unbroken 9th-wicket stand. The 4ths jumped out of the blocks well, thumping 5/211 at nearly 6 runs per over, and Bonbeach were never in the hunt replying with 6/111.

The Sunday 1sts struggled to 128 batting first in their 2-day game, but hit back late to have Coles 2/35 at stumps, and a couple of early wickets next week should see them well in the hunt. The Sunday 2nds continued their good start to the season with a big win over Gunbower, chasing 8/142 the result was never in doubt as Dave Bennett cracked 102 on our way to 5/206. Congratulations Dave and well done boys, now 3 from 3 and setting the pace in MCA B Sunday.

In junior cricket, our U/13s made a good fist of a big run chase, hitting 5/125 in response to Oakleigh District Footballer’s 5/165. An encouraging result despite not getting the points.
