Kyabram has put up its most impressive batting effort to date in Shepparton Cricket on the back of an overdue Paul Parsons century on Saturday.
Chasing Mooroopna’s daunting total of 392 at Mooroopna, the Kyabram batsmen, led by Parsons, posted a handsome 7/304.
Parsons was back to his best, scoring 102 with nine boundaries. But he didn’t lack support.
Openers Joe Fowler and Pat Parsons shared an opening stand of 41 which was dominated by an aggressive Fowler who then shared a 30 runs stand with Jason Parsons who made 39 before being out for 34.
Ky’s two best batsmen Paul Parsons and Sam Nelson kept the runs coming before Nelson was run out for 18.
Then Parsons and 17-year-old Jack Donnell produced a stand of 82 with Donnell’s 46, which contained six boundaries, his highest score at this level.
Parsons was finally out when Kyabram had 249 runs on the board. Then Donnell and skipper Tom Roberts took Kyabram’s score over 300 with Roberts smacking two fours and a six in his unbeaten 33.
‘‘Yes we played very well,’’ said a satisfied Roberts, summing up his team’s performance.
‘‘Paul (Parsons) has been out of form but he played a really good innings and gave one hard half chance that I an remember.’’
‘‘We got a good start with Joe (Fowler) particularly aggressive but it was a good team effort.’’
‘‘I think our score was out best for a few years so that was satisfying even though we got beaten.’’
Roberts said the performance would give his winless team heart for when the season recommences on January 5.
‘‘We play Shepparton United in that game and that’s a winnable game for us.
‘‘I think we can win two or three games after Christmas.
‘‘Out batsmen are now putting it together and we just have to get a bit more support from out bowlers.
Chambers, who took 6/45 in Numurkah’s innings the previous week, plundered an unbeaten 71 with nine fours and six as Kyabram recovered from 7/128 to finish with 269.
Chris Usher, with a dashing 50 which included five fours and three sixes, and Anthony Robinson, with 48, held the Kyabram top order together before Chambers produced his batting heroics.
