Tatura's takes old foe Kyabram to the brink of victory.By Bob Wildes
Rivalry was renewed with old foe Kyabram in a one-day game at Kyabram in what was a must-win game for Tatura.
Kyabram won the toss and elected to bat, but its batsmen soon struggled against some accurate Tatura bowling, with the first wicket falling at 17.
Wickets fell steadily thereafter, with Kyabram all out for what should have been a losing 95.
In an even bowling performance, Tom Eggins returned the impressive figures of 3-3 from 5.3 overs. Blair Jenkins took 1-18, Lou Worm 2-21, Dan Coombs 2-24 and Lachie Magee 2-12 from five overs.
Tatura started solidly for what appeared to be a comfortable run chase of 96 from 45 overs. However, the fragility of the upper batting order soon became exposed.
The first wicket was lost at 20, but with nine wickets in hand there was still no reason for concern. The loss of three more wickets with the score stationary on 25 raised the level of nervous tension in the dressing room, which was exacerbated as the score went to 5-29 and then 6-40.
Again, Glenn Walker came to the rescue, demonstrating there were no demons in the opposition attack, and took Tatura to the brink of victory. The game entered an exciting stage with Tatura 9-80, but with Walker still at the crease and untroubled. In a nail-biting finish, the scores were tied when Lou Worm was last man out for four, leaving Walker stranded on 33 not out.
This was the game that got away from Tatura, and although it salvaged half the points, it was another insipid batting performance against the bottom side in the competition.
