Seymour and Broadford warm up with contrasting victories.CHALPAT SONTI December 5, 2012 4:49am
The last two-day round before Christmas will have more hinging on it than usual in the Seymour District Cricket Association’s A-grade two-day competition.
Seymour will host Broadford in a top-of-the-table clash after both sides accounted for fellow top-four teams Kilmore and Alexandra at the weekend.
Kilmore let Seymour come back from the dead and will travel to Nagambie to meet the side that has knocked it out of the top four but which will be missing some of its young stars due to a school tournament.
Avenel has the chance to continue to recover from a slow start when it shoots for its third win in a row — and within striking distance of the top four — at home to Eastern Hill.
And Tallarook will face the toughest test of all, a trip to Alexandra, as it looks to recover from a heartbreaking loss to the Swans.
But perhaps the real highlight of the weekend came in C-grade, where Flowerdale opener Jimmy Stephens, last season’s batting average winner, hit 28 fours and 10 sixes on his way to an unbeaten 202 against Alexandra. Stephens, who retired when he reached his double ton, was part of a 303-run opening partnership with Ashley Cook (86) in a team total of 1-326 off just 31 overs.
