Chance to make hay while the sun shines

October 13, 2017

After just two rounds a gap between the competition’s best and worst in Goulburn Murray Cricket could establish itself.

Moama, Echuca and Rochester United could all be two games clear come tomorrow evening when they face Bamawm-Lockington United, Cooma and Tongala respectively.

Meanwhile, Echuca South travels to Stanhope and Kyabram Fire Brigade hosts Rochester Tigers.

Moama posted a batting masterclass finishing at 4-249 last week against Tongala, with former Central Park St-Brendan’s batter Layton McCann knocking his way to 132 not out.

McCann almost single-handedly outscored Tongala by 10-fold, after the eventual losers were bowled out for just 39 runs.

Anthony McMahon ran riot with the ball for Moama, finishing with figures of 6-10.

United was also prolific with the ball, restricting BLU to just 95 runs after opening first to make 9-139.

Jordan Garrett (53) notched a half-century for United, however, it was a dominant team performance with the ball that had four bowlers finish with multiple wickets.

Echuca should prove too strong for Cooma with the former posting 3-151 last weekend.

Brendan Prendergast bowed out at 46 once he was caught off Cam Smith’s delivery, while Matt Winks guided his side home to finish on 41 not out.

A battle between second and fourth will have Fire Brigade take on Rochester and after the former finished on 4-216 it should feel confident heading into tomorrow’s clash.

Brett Andison led the charge for Fire Brigade, bashing five fours and three sixes on his way to 80, while, in his first game for the club, Anthony Andronaco followed suit finishing on 47.

Echuca South and Stanhope will be aiming to get on the winners’ list this weekend, especially after South’s third highest scorer was extras on 15.

Four of South’s batsmen failed to make a run, four others made less than 10, while Brad Jones (67) and Luke Thompson (29) combined for a majority of the score.
