Time to call the Fire Brigade

February 16, 2018

A top four clash between Kyabram Fire Brigade and Moama headlines the final round of action in Goulburn Murray Cricket.

Moama started off the season with blistering pace and is aiming to bring that form back before finals.

Last week it was on the end of a narrow loss when it fell three runs short of defeating fellow contender Cooma.

Moama’s position in the top four remains safe, despite its points tally leaving it within six points of dropping out of the four.

A competitive amount of runs piled on with the help of Alistair and Layton McCann has helped Moama to be able to boast the best percentage in the competition.

But Fire Brigade has every intention of bringing that percentage down as the Flames have hit season-best form at the right time.

Fresh off inflicting a defeat on top-side Rochester United, proving too good for Moama will be a continuation for Daniel Kent’s dominant team.

Kyabram will thrive on the challenge of bowling to Layton McCann, while Jordan McGregor aims to produce a big score after having his innings ended four times in the 30s this year.

Tongala continues to hang on in fifth spot, despite the top four appearing set.

The Blues mathematically are a chance of pipping Cooma to take fourth spot, but the likelihood is minimal given the large percentage barrier.

But Tongala is every chance of claiming first innings points against Rochester Tigers tomorrow, with the Tigers struggling having succumbed to Bamawm-Lockington United last round.

Cooma’s nail-biting victory last week has eased the pressure for its contest against Stanhope.

A match against the Lions provides the ideal opportunity for plenty of time in the middle to consolidate its batting before the semi-final.

A loss to Kyabram Fire Brigade may just be the catalyst for Rochester United in its quest for a third consecutive premiership.

Echuca South will host a rampant United side, while Bamawm-Lockington United and Echuca compete in both sides’ last appearance for the season.
