Nagambie do it again

Lakers add Twenty20 trophy to one-day Seymour District Cricket Association title.

The victorious Nagambie cricket side after making it two from two in grnad finals this season, winning the HG Turf Shield for the SDCA Twenty20 competition.



Eastern Hill opener Robert Kemp has been lured too far forward and is about to give a catch to Tallarook's Craig Durkin (out of shot) in the gully. Wicketkeeper Travis Muir, Paul Arandt, Sam Watts and Cam Muir (obscured) are the other fieldsmen.

The Lakers were far too good for an under-strength Blues side at Chittick Park, with Mark Nolan leading the way with bat and ball. Nagambie added the HG Turf Shield to its one-day title won at Broadford last month and are second on the two-day competition ladder with two rounds to go before the finals.

No side has won all three competitions since Twenty20 was introduced in 2010-11. Nagambie have now won two of the three Twenty20 titles played for.

Nagambie moved to within a win of top-of-the-table Broadford in the two-day competition after surviving some early setbacks to defeat Alexandra on Saturday.

Kilmore moved to third after staving off a late Broadford fightback, while Seymour missed a golden chance to go fourth after collapsing late against Avenel. However, with Alexandra losing it is still in the finals race and the two sides will meet this weekend.

Eastern Hill skipper Ricky Misiti helped his side hold off Tallarook’s bid for an outright, made after a whirlwind batting display by Paul Arandt.
