Jayden Gleeson took 4/12 off 8.1 overs.



Rain intervened on day two of round seven Seymour District Cricket Association A-grade matches with two games abandoned — Avenel v Eastern Hill and Alexandra v Tallarook — due to wet wickets and grounds.

The other two games were late starting with Broadford grabbing top position on the ladder and Kilmore returning to winners’ list.

Another highlight was the performance of two youngsters in the Under-17 McPherson Shield.

Tyler Oliver (Goulburn Murray) took 6/6 off six overs, three maidens then made 57.

Brayden Biggs (Seymour) made 51 then took 4/12 off 8.1 overs.

Nagambie V Kilmore.

Play did not start till 1.30pm.

Nagambie, resuming at 2/10, lost wickets at regular intervals to be 8/65 then 9/99.

A last wicket partnership of 39 runs between Tristan Murray and Scott Marshall took the score to 138 all out.

Murray made 30 and Marshall 20 not out.

Hayden Smith took 3/15 and Luke Brennan 2/12 for Kilmore.

Seymour V Broadford

This game was also late starting (3.40pm).

Broadford, resuming, needing only 26 runs for victory and top position on the ladder.

The side batted the rest of the afternoon to be all out for 253 with Braden Hickey 62 and Brendan Walsh 47.

William Brock put in good performance with the ball taking 6/74 off 17 overs.


Pucka V Nagambie

With chances of play doubtful a rejuvenated side containing recent A-grade centurion Kyle Winter-Irving travelled to Pucka where after a short delay, Nagambie captain Michael Mensfield won the toss and elected to bat.

Matthew Martin and Steve Brook were sent in to open the batting but after just six overs, the heavens opened and play was suspended and after some deliberation the game was washed out with the score at 0/6.

McPherson Shield

Seymour Association under-17 team made it three wins in a row by defeating Goulburn Murray by 26 runs.

It will probably advance into the final to be played on Sunday, February 3.

Seymour won the toss and batted and got away to a good start to be 4/87 then fell in a hole losing five wickets for eight runs to be 9/95.

A last wicket partnership of 24 between Cody Hogan and Fraser Gayapersad took the score to 9/119 off 50 overs.

Captain Brayden Biggs batted well for 51 (108 balls).

Tyler Oliver put in good performance with the ball taking 6/6 off 6 overs three maidens.

Goulburn Murray got away to a bad start to be 3/9.

A fourth wicket partnership of 61 (55 mins 95 balls) between Tyler Oliver and Brendon Moyle took the score to 4/70.

They then lost six wickets for 23 to be all out for 93.

Tyler Oliver completed a fine double making 57 (69 balls) and Brayden Biggs took 4.12 off 8.1 overs.
