Hamish Winter-Irving won the battle of the Cricket Shepparton exports in Victorian Premier Cricket on Saturday.
Winter-Irving’s Footscray-Edgewater was far too strong for Ryan Sidebottom’s Carlton, winning by six wickets thanks to a brilliant 175 from opener Greg Munro.
Carlton posted a modest total of 216 on day one, with Winter-Irving snaring three wickets in an economical spell.
Sidebottom toiled hard against the quality Footscray-Edgewater line-up, but finished with 1-71 from 17 overs.
Meanwhile, Monash Tigers peeled off a comfortable win against Essendon, with Katandra product Daniel Sartori in form at the top of the order after hitting 54.
He was out to former Northern Rivers star Liam Bowe, with the Bendigo boy earning somewhat of a cult status after featuring for Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash League.
Essendon was all out for 182 batting first, while Sartori and Sam Taylor (100 not out) led the way for the Tigers to get to 8-319.
Former Karramomus player Josh McDonald smashed a quick-fire 34 in Geelong’s comfortable win against Frankston-Peninusla.
The wicketkeeper went at more than a run-a-ball batting at No.4 as Geelong declared on 7-276 in reply to 151.
Multiple Central Park-St Brendan’s premiership player Tyler Larkin dropped back to Geelong’s second grade team, where he made 16 in a draw against Frankston-Peninusla.
Frankston made 250 batting first, before Geelong fell nine runs short of passing the total with four wickets still in hand.
Karramomus young gun Andrew Poppa turned out for Carlton’s third grade side, making nine batting at No.3.
