Central Park-St Brendan’s premiership player Hamish Winter-Irving was involved in a thrilling Twenty20 tie in Victorian Premier Cricket on Saturday.
Winter-Irving was unbeaten on five as Footscray batted first to make 5-139 from its 20 overs.
Dandenong replied with 8-139 of its own, but Winter-Irving was the star as he finished with incredible figures of 4-17 from his four overs to ensure the Bulldogs split the points from the fixture.
Footscray was unable to defeat Geelong on Sunday, as the Dogs went down by seven wickets.
Winter-Irving took a wicket as Geelong responded to Footscray’s score of 5-116, as former Karramomus batsman Josh McDonald blasted 52 from 34 balls.
It continued Geelong’s fine start to the season after it crushed Prahran on Saturday by six wickets with almost four overs to spare.
Former Katandra player Daniel Sartori had a disappointing weekend, with his Monash Tigers losing both their Twenty20 encounters.
Sartori was out for scores of seven and 21 as the Tigers went down to Essendon and St Kilda.
In second grade, former Central Park-St Brendan’s star Tyler Larkin captained Geelong to a win on Saturday.
Lightfoot medallist Larkin made 18 in the victory against Prahran, but was overshadowed by a sensational 136 not out from fellow opener Corey Ogle.
Former Tigers also featured in Carlton’s third grade win against Kingston-Hawthorn on Saturday.
Brayden Tracey smashed 24 opening the batting as Carlton made 5-121 before Tom Chalkley claimed 2-18 to reduce the combine to 6-104.
Tracey continued on his top form the following day as he hit 45 from 31 balls as Carlton racked up 3-177 in impressive fashion.
