Round 5 Results

A tough day out for the Saturday sides, the 1sts posted a solid 5/169 and had Bonbeach 8 down with 10 to get off the final over – which they got, finishing 8/172. The 2nds were sent in at Koornang and set 9/135, which Bonbeach reeled in with a few overs to spare, hitting 7/151.

The 3rds were washed out yet again, this time thanks to some localised showers courtesy of the Lords Reserve sprinkler system. The 4ths got on on a slow deck at Princes Park, captain Ash Pandey hitting 38 to take us to 9/123, but we struggled to break through Cheltenham’s top order as they hit 6/138.

In the Sunday games, the Sunday 1sts started their 2-dayer against Malvern in the field, bowling the visitors out for 206, and made a promising start to our reply, 0/36 at stumps. The Sunday 2nds pulled off a cracking win out at Fawkner, in massive trouble at 8/44, James Wilcock pulled us out of the fire with 47 to take us to 112. The Melbourne Cobras were looking untroubled at 4/80 in reply, before Dave Watson got amongst it with 5/15 to knock them over for 88.

On Friday night, the U/13s posted a strong win over Toorak-Prahran at Lords, chasing 2/108, Josh Meyer led the way with 25* as we racked up 3/123. The U/11s faced a tough ask to chase down Malvern’s 3/129, falling short with 6/54.
