McIntosh Shield Grade

 

Box Hill North Super Kings hosted the defending Premiers Heatherdale and the Dales batted first posting a respectable 9-254cc with Brenton Toole 54, Jarrod Thorpe 44*, the main contributors. But the match belonged to former Sri Lanka star Russell Arnold taking 5-73 and making 48 opening the batting to see the Super Kings take the points and get back in the top 4, they look threatening approaching the mid season break.

 

Blackburn South  were desperate to stay out of relegation contention and saw a chance against the winless Mitcham. Day 1 the Tigers could only manage 119 with Jason Thompson proving his class with the ball taking  5-34. Blackburn South faced a short session before stumps and were left at 3/25 at stumps and game on. Day 2 and the Cobras Seaton Mundy would turn the game once again hitting 50 with 5 towering 6’s to guide the Cobras to their second win of the season.

 

Vermont have gone to the top of McIntosh Shield ladder defeating arch rival East Box Hill scoring a massive 9-332cc on Day 1  with young gun Ben Gibson 86, Geoff Mann 47 and Brad Taylor 43 leading the way.  Chris Borg took 5-85 to be the best of the EBH bowlers. Chasing a big total was always going to be tough, and Mitch Rickarby crashed through EBH taking 8-56 to see them all out for just 85, following on East Box Hill finished at 2-109  to avoid an outright defeat.

 

St Davids hosting Templestowe would see two days of dramatic action with Templestowe only managing 86, Christian Slattery 4-41 for St Davids. The home side staggered to 118 with only Michael Enticott 62* standing firm and Templestowe skipper Andrew Hone outstanding with 8-44 for the visitors. Templestowe 2nd innings got to 9/140 (dec) with St Davids finishing at 4/56.

 

East Burwood won the toss and batting first posted 166, led by  Sean Bramstedt with 71, best for the Burners was Sujeewa Liyanage  returning 4-50. Blackburn got to 4/60 at stumps. Simon Cocks broke Blackburn with a stunning 7-52 to see them fold for 117 in a match winning performance. East Burwood’s 2nd time at the crease saw them limp to  8-62 and again Liyanage did the damage with 6-23. East Burwood’s win moves them to 6th place.

 

Bulleen Templestowe travelling to Forest Hill dismissed the ladder leaders for a disappointing 127. Lee Woolcock led the way for the Bullants with 4/23. After losing a couple of early wickets, Luke Mason, 55*, steadied the ship guiding the visitors to safety and 6-183. The Bullants now sit 2nd equal on wins with Vermont and Forest Hill.

 

Wilson Shield Grade

 

Laburnum hosted Doncaster and posted 326 with Matt Henderson 111, Ross Henderson 57, Ross Theunissen 43 the best, Sam Noble toiled manfully taking 6-59 for the visitors. Doncaster’s innings never got going and they were all out for 150, Ross Henderson had a handy double taking 6-25. Doncaster batting a second time finished at 6-146 with Mark Albiston with 75 showed the type of fight placking first time around. Ross Henderson snared 4-32 to give him 10 wickets for the match in an outstanding effort and surely the 3 votes.

 

Koonung Heights continued its great start to the season with a win over Mulgrave Wheelers Hill after restricting the home side to 9-156cc with Cameron ‘Hotel’ Hall taking 4-31. The Nungers got them 6 down with Sahan Pathirnana 37 and the consistent Clint Proctor 36 doing the job.

 

Eley Park hosting top of the ladder Blackburn North and after being sent into bat the Parkers would struggle to 7/100 at tea against a very strong bowling line up eventually being dismissed for 137. Youngster John Rozakis made 53 to be the only shining light for the Parkers scoring his first half century. Dean Burton’s 5-13 did the damage for the Bulldogs. They were never really troubled resuming at 1/44 with a Ben Davis unbeaten century led from the front to keep the Bulldogs undefeated.

 

In other games Kerrimuir United 4-183 easily passed Glen Waverley Hawks 182 to record back to back wins, while Vermont South 7-348cc led by Sudesh Umayanga Guruge 144 steamrolled Heatherdale who replied with 141 Vermont South now sit now in fourth spot on the ladder.
