Rain sees minimal victories

Only two SJ Perry Shield D-grade matches finished with results other than a draw this weekend.

Karramomus could only post a score of 111 against Dhurringile, but it proved to be more than enough.

Steven Laffy (3-12), Ash Thompson (3-19) and Tony Rowan (2-15) did the damage with the ball for the Bloods to help bowl the away side out for 75.

Mooroopna also claimed victory after posting 7-201 in its 40 overs against Murchison.

James Woods engineered a match-high 60 to set the tone for his team, with three other players also scoring more than 30.

Murchison never looked likely to reel in the total during the chase, with Ryan Dean (27) and Greg Fraser (24 not out) showing the bulk of the resistance.

Jed Woods claimed the best bowling figures of the day for Mooroopna with 3-20.

All other matches were called a draw due to rain, but Jonathan Hipwell impressed for Kyabram with an unbeaten 42 against Toolamba holding out Taipans Greg Watts (3-16) and Chris Bell (3-31).

● The Whitelock Shield E-grade competition was similarly affected by rain, with a result able to be achieved in just one of four matches.

Central Park-St Brendan’s players went home the only victors from the round after defeating Mooroopna.

Peter Hogeboom (66) and Graham Sylvester (38) got the Tigers to 7-160 after 40 overs - a total that was far too much for the Cats to chase down.

Hogeboom took 3-7 and Adrian Crossley 4-13 to dismiss the home side for 78.

Katandra opener Glenn Smith (63) and Old Students compatriot Bruce Hallam (70) went toe-to-toe for their respective outfits to no avail in their match, while Paul Parsons (43) impressed for Kyabram against Pine Lodge.

The side most unhappy with the weather would be Toolamba though.

After the Northerners had made 132 batting first, the Taipans were just two runs in arrears at 4-130 when play was abandoned.

Luke Dabkowski (45 not out) and Liam Callegari (33 not out) had put together an unbeaten stand of 50 before the match was called a draw with 15 overs remaining.
