Two of Fire Brigade’s former players have provided a chance of bringing down their old side following the resumption of Goulburn Murray Cricket last Saturday after the festive break.
Adam Jones and Ben Langley, now playing with the Echuca Cricket Club, were to the fore with the bat as their side posted a competitive 198 in the game at Kyabram’s Northern Oval after being sent into bat.
The aggressive Jones top scored with 51 and Langley was the second highest run scorer for his side with 35.
Jones dominated an opening stand of 63 with skipper Brendan Prendergast, who went on to make 34.
Once the Brigade quicks Brendan White and Brett Andison removed the openers, only Langley, Curtis Tonrow (25) and Ryan Hogan (18) held up the Scott Hearn-led Brigade attack for any time.
Hearn finished with 4-51 off a marathon 25 overs in a top spell while Daniel Kent with 3-39 off 18 overs was tight and successful.
White broke down in his ninth over and sought medical help for an injured ankle.
The game looks fairly evenly poised but the Brigade’s talented batting line-up is capable of being equal to the challenge this Saturday.
The Cooma bowlers performed admirably to dismiss Tongala for 145, but had lost openers Steve Barrett and Nick Hubble cheaply in their run chase, which resumes this Saturday.
Tongala’s innings was held together by Jordan Souter with 46 in the middle order and Brett Scowen (23) and Davie Currie (24).
Michael Hill with 3-30 off 19 overs, including seven maidens, was the standout Cooma bowler while Liam and Mitch Barrett also gave nothing away and each picked up two wickets, along with Zac Cerrone.
Skipper Brayden Stone, playing his first game for the club this season, and Hill will resume Cooma’s 133-run chase this Saturday in a bid to get a win for their side and to keep its finals hopes alive.
The bulk of the Stanhope runs were provided by opener Daryl Harrison with 39, Tom Hepburn (33) and Craig Emmett (25).
Shannon Busch was the combine’s bowling standout, with three of the first four wickets to fall. He finished with 3-15 off nine overs.
The combine was 1/24 in reply.
