A fantastic day of grade.
Davistow Darters 104 & 192 Defeated
Campsfield Braves 41 & 120 by 135 Runs.
Another day at the local Heathridge Oval nightmare. Gooljar's figures were impressive on what is known as primarily a pacemans track, taking a creditable 9/88 for the match. Whilst Watt and Kennett's 14 over first innings demolition of the Braves was frightful to behold. Comley, when he got the chance, once again proved himself with 6/46 in the second innings.
Stedingham Jets 116 & 199 lost to
Edfield Seahawks 152 & 2/164 by 8 Wickets.
Matt Smith blew the Jets apart with an explosive 7/39, whilst Logantahan and Cameron tried to keep them in contention with 5/35 & 5/46 respectively. Mamesh gave the Jets more hope, with a creditable 65, however the target of 164 was reached with only two fallen wickets as Mørk ground his way to 57* whilst at the other end Bharat thumped a blistering 72* to seal the game for the Seahawks.
Nixonstown Foxes 222 & 167 defeated
Garven Island Sharks 148 & 68 by 173 runs.
Rich Edmunds went berserk, taking 8/18 in the seconds innings and 5/42 in the first to crush the Sharks, who once again failed to deliver. Jamee Gray's 74* initially gave the Foxes spirit, after they looked shaky at the beginning, but from there on in it was plain sailing with only Lezama (64) and Teague (11/98) putting up any real fight for the Sharks.
Gofftown Tigers 271 flogged
Pickford Panthers 54 & 69 by an innings and 148 runs.
A laughable affair at Gofftown Oval as the Panthers obviously decided that showing up was good enough. Thomas bowled with precision to take 6/23 to reduce the Panthers to 54, then Jasotharan went about his usual business with a strong 88. Then all the Gofftown bowlers chipped in as the Panthers fell to a crushing loss, with no stand out performance.
Greater Robbham de Grooters 131 & 227 defeated
Twybridge Titans 125 & 158 by 75 runs.
Scott's 129 was the highlight of the match, as he took the game away from the Titans in what was looking like a close affair. The bowling was solid throughout, although there were no stand out performances of the kind grade has been known to produce. The Titans did their best however none of them could stand up as Scott did, as they fell 75 short of their target.
Signatures are like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get.
