Deakin Oval last Sunday.
After losing the toss, the Monaro side was sent
in to bat. Opening batsmen Lach McGufficke and
Tom Walker set about getting some runs on the
board before the heat set in.
Tom found some rhythm early putting on 23
runs. He received good support from fellow
batsman Justin McDonald (11) and Matty Rebus
(5) before being bowled in the 7th over.
Colby McDonald and Luke Fitzgerald steadied
the batting and formed a much needed 30 run
partnership. Luke scoring with 18 runs, with
Colby in support scoring 6.
Emma McDonald helped the side out when they
were short players.
She took to the crease with Thomas King (2 not
out), but was caught trying to reach the boundary.
Monaro made 7/82 in 16 overs and knew that
they would have to work hard in the field to
defend this total.
Colby McDonald and Thomas King (0/8)
opened the bowling for Monaro and put pressure
on the Eastlake batsmen straight away.
Their first wicket fell in the 3rd over when Colby
sent the offside stump flying. T
he tables turned in Eastlakes favour when they
formed a 40 run partnership before the fall their
next wicket in the 11th over, Tom Walker took a
stumping off the bowling of Matty Rebus.
This proved to be a successful combination, as
a second stumping by Tom was taken off Matty’s
bowling later in the innings. Matty finished a
successful day with the ball
with bowling figures 3/13.
Monaro bowlers worked hard in the heat - Luke
Fitzgerald (2/13), Remi Braddeman (0/12), Lach
McGufficke (maiden over) and Justin McDonald
As the temperature rose, so did the tension.
With six balls remaining Eastlake required 12 runs
The ball was handed back to Colby (2/15) who
once again sent a stump flying to wrap up the
Eastlake innings. All out for 74.
