With our roving reporter Nikki on annual leave for a few days it has been left to me for an in-depth analyses of the final day of the weekends matches.
1st Grade, Chasing a huge score but only half of what the Aussie team is chasing, City just fell short. There were two very good partnerships in the run chase between Ryan Hansen (29 runs) and Richie (I keep scoring Runs) O’Halloran (49 runs) and Richie again with Dan Lawrence (38 runs).
2nd Grade wasn’t chasing as many as 1st Grade but again fell a few runs short. Mark (the pup) Fisher batted for what seemed like days for his well-deserved runs. He had over a hundred run partnership with young Tommy Fitzgerald, who showed his class with the bat.
In 3rd Grade Cory Pannowitz retained his captaincy of the team from the week before and lead the team to a first innings win. City battered a second time and had a lead of 170 runs. At the end of the days play Bective were 8 wickets down for 110 runs or so. It was an all-round team performance. Special mention must be made of Eddie Beattie who kept the team focused and had a stellar match.
As mentioned yesterday 4th Grade had a very strong win over Bective with the talented sons out playing their parents on the day.
Our club now prepares for a two-day match against Old Boys who will be a good test for us.
