All cricket games except one were washed out thanks to rain on the weekend.December 18, 2012 4:22am
The rain at the weekend, although welcome, put a dampener on cricket. All games except the B-grade game at Howley Oval were washed out.
The C-grade game at Tatura Park was abandoned when water got through undetected rodent holes in the covers.
The B-grade game finished badly for Tatura with the team losing outright to Mooroopna. Tatura resumed its innings at none for 28 chasing Mooroopna’s seven declared for 306. The rot started when captain Jim Pyke was unavailable and couldn’t add to his 26 from the previous week.
After some brief resistance from Blair Jenkins (14), Gary Dealy (14) and Jack O’Toole (12) the side was all out for a disappointing 81. Mooroopna then enforced the follow on. Batting a second time Tatura made a better start reaching three for 84 courtesy of Jenkins (14), Lou Worm (15) and Emal Somers who went on to make 54.
Apart from a late order 15 from Xavier Dowell, the rest of the team capitulated when some resolute defence could have avoided the ignominy of an outright loss. The last three wickets fell without addition to the score, and Tatura was all out for 127, 10 minutes before stumps.
