A wrap from the region's cricket pitches.January 15, 2014 4:51am
With one round of one-day games to be played, the fight to see who plays off in the Kookaburra Seymour Total Sports final begins.
The games next week are arch rivals Kilmore v Broadford at Kilmore, Eastern Hill v Nagambie, Tallarook v Alexandra, Seymour v Avenel. I think that Kilmore will qualify and will play either Nagambie or Alexandra.
Nagambie v Seymour
Seymour batted first and made a competitive score of 9-150 off 45 overs. Batting details were not provided.
Mark Nolan 3-26 and Kyle Winter-Irving 2-23 were the wicket takers for Nagambie.
Nagambie in reply cruised to an easy six-wicket victory making 4-156. Kyle Winter-Irving opened the batting and was 66 not out receiving support from Josh Sanderson 39 and Brayden Biggs 24.
Broadford v Tallarook
Tallarook batted first and after 45 overs was 9-108.
Brendan Walsh took 3-16 for Broadford.
Broadford was 2-11 chasing the Rook total but steadied to finish with 5-111.
Evans Mills top scored with 33 and received support from James Ingham 29 not out and Liam Collier 25.
Alexandra v Kilmore
The last time these two sides met in a two-day game Kilmore inflicted an outright defeat on Alexandra.
Kilmore batted first and was in trouble to be 5-45.
A six-wicket partnership of 59 between Brandyn Grenfell and Matthew Rose took the score to 104 when Grenfell was run out for 38.
The last four wickets fell for 17 runs to be all out for 121. Ross Malcolm took 3-14.
Alexandra with captain Marcus Hill in fine form was 41 not out and Callum Tranter 21 and James Kidd 18 not out finished with 6-122 and victory by four wickets.
Avenel v Eastern Hill
In an exciting finish Eastern Hill got home by two wickets with three balls left.
Avenel batted first and was in trouble to be 4-27.
A five-wicket partnership of 77 off 151 balls between Harry Wheeler and Max Jones took the score to 5-104 when Jones was run out for 30 off 81 balls.
One run later Wheeler was caught for 46 off 79 balls.
Chris Tingay hit a quickfire 26 off 22 balls when he was dismissed.
The score was 134 and the last four wickets fell for six runs to be all out for 140. Seamus Feery took 3-19 and Dean Fulco 3-16.
Eastern Hill was in trouble to be 6-73. A seven-wicket partnership of 39 between Billy Cox and Brodie Sherwood took the score to 7-112 when Cox was run out for 28, still requiring 30 runs for a victory.
When Tim Te Whare was dismissed at 137 they still required three runs. Brodie Sherwood steered the ship home hitting the winning runs with three balls left. Sherwood was 28 not out, Chris Tingay took 3-19.
One day ladder: Kilmore 30, Nagambie 24 (1.16 per cent), Alexandra 24 (1.01 per cent), Broadford 18 (1.20 per cent), Eastern Hill 18 (1.17 per cent), Avenel 18 (0.92 per cent), Tallarook 12, Seymour 0.
