Rain turns round into mixed bag of one and two-day games

It is a mixed bag in Goulburn Murray Cricket tomorrow.

Three two-day matches began last Saturday, with rain impacting the game between Moama and Rochester Tigers.

The Tigers batted first at Moama Oval and ran into some serious trouble as the Magpies caused carnage on their home deck.

Rochester Tigers will resume at 4-36 with key players Adam Ward and Jake Wright at the crease.

Moama’s Anthony McMahon will be looking to carry on his hot form after taking 3-14 in nine overs.

Meanwhile, Rochester United found itself in a reasonable position back in Victoria, posting 9-223 against Echuca.

United was in a dire position before Dylan Cuttriss came to the rescue at No.7 with an outstanding 75.

Simon Maddox was the pick of Echuca’s bowlers with 4-61 in a tireless 22-over spell.

At Cooma, the home side worked its way into a top position by belting out 8-252.

Jake Kelly made 70 opening the batting, putting on 109 for the first wicket with Andrew Appleton (43).

Michael Hill (42) and Liam Barrett (44) made starts to put Cooma in a commanding position.

There will be one-day games between Kyabram Fire Brigade and Tongala and Stanhope and Bamawm-Lockington United after rain affected those games last weekend.

It is tight at the top of the ladder, with the Flames in third place, but on the same amount of points as the Blues in fifth.

The Lions and United are looking for respect, with just one win between them this season out of a possible 12 combined games.
