Winter-Irving Hams it up with bat and ball for Footscray

December 12, 2017

Hamish Winter-Irving has continued his fine start to the Victoria Premier Cricket competition in Melbourne.

The former Central Park-St Brendan’s star helped his Footscray side muster a competitive 122 against Frankston Peninsula, after finishing up at 25 not out.

The imposing figure entered the crease at number seven before scoring his side’s third highest score off 51 balls, even hitting a six and a four in the process.

The former Notre Dame College student then went on to bowl 10 overs, finishing with figures of 1-16 to guide Footscray home to a 10-run victory.

Katandra export Daniel Sartori opened the batting for Monash Tigers against Dandenong in a battle between 11th and second, respectively.

Sartori spent more than an hour at the crease last week to notch 20 runs off 50 balls, guiding the Tigers to 6-195 off 50 overs.

However, that total was not enough with Dandenong surpassing the required amount with 14 balls to spare.

The result has the Tigers sitting one win and six points outside of the top eight as they travel to face Geelong.

Former Karramomus wicketkeeper Josh McDonald scored the least amount of runs for his Geelong side against Fitzroy Doncaster in round 11.

The mercurial figure was caught out on four after facing just six balls as the Cats went on to have their total of 7-201 chased down.

In the lower grades, batting at number three Shepparton United prodigy Andrew Poppa also only lasted a few minutes at the crease after being dismissed for just one run.

However, the same could not be said for the man he replaced.

Former Central Park-St Brendan’s talent Brayden Tracey shone with the willow in hand.

The right-handed batsman hit 27 runs, the third highest for Carlton, as it went on to defend its total of 150 by one run, after bowling out Prahran’s Rehn Smith with an over to spare.
