Kyabram Fire Brigade claimed its 11th senior flag and created some history with a comprehensive win in the weekend’s Goulburn Murray Cricket premiership showdown against Tongala at Moama.
With the flag came the distinction of being the first former Kyabram District Cricket Association side to win in the newly-formed competition — a union of the KDCA and Campaspe associations two years ago.
But Flames skipper Daniel Kent did admit after Tongala had hoisted the white flag mid-afternoon on Sunday he had serious doubts his side had put enough runs on the board in its first innings to win the game.
‘‘Yes, I was worried when we were 9-140 and even when we got to 176, I still had doubts whether it would be enough,’’ he said.
‘‘But we got those four Tongala wickets on the first day which was a real bonus as I thought two or even three (wickets) would have been a good result.’’
Kent had plenty of praise for his team’s two batting tailenders Brendan White and Will Power, who added 36 for the last wicket.
‘‘Brendan slogged them around and Will gave him the support he needed, so I think that was the most crucial part of the game for us as far as I’m concerned,’’ Kent said.
Kent said he was surprised Tongala hadn’t challenged the poor light when they were batting at the end of the first day before the umpires called off play at about 5.30
