on . Posted in Blog

The premiership hangover continues for Footscray-Edgewater following their loss to Melbourne-Uni in their round thirteen one-dayer of the Bartercard Victorian Premier League season. The Bulldogs did well to hold the Students to 4-233 on a flat wicket and despite another half-century by Travis Dean and some lusty hitting from keeper Dylan Kight, 66 from 64 balls (7 boundaries, one six) they fell short of the total by 18 runs, dismissed for 215 in the final over.

 

Tigers remain on top of one-day ladder after win over Bulldogs

on . Posted in Blog

The Monash Tigers remain at the top of the Bartercard Victorian Premier League one-day ladder following their 63-run win over Footscray-Edgewater in round twelve at the Merv Hughes Oval. Monash reached a modest total of 211 from their fifty overs before dismissing the Bulldogs for just 148 in the 43rd over.

The game was evenly poised midway through the Bulldogs innings at 3-95 but when Travis Dean (above), who had been looking good, hit one straight to Andrew Chalkley at cover off Samuel Kerber, it triggered a collapse in which they lost their last seven wickets for just  43 runs.

Merton have celebrated their 150th anniversary of racing at the track on New Year’s Day with a successful meeting held in fine conditions before an estimated crowd of around 1,500. A six race card kicked off mid-afternoon with punters and picnic goers mingling beneath the elm trees and pulling eskys from their car boots.

As the Strathbogie Ranges bathed in the sunshine the jockeys in the first made their way to the barriers at the 1100. The PA system bellowed the second from Doomben and children scurried in-and-out of rare lawn space.

 

 

Prahran move to top of the ladder after win over Carlton.

on . Posted in Blog

Prahran have overtaken Carlton as the Bartercard Premier League leaders after beating the Blues in a low scoring T20 clash at Toorak Park in round eleven. The True Blues did it the hard way eventually edging past Carlton’s score of 77 with eight balls to spare and two wickets in hand.

Carlton skipper, Tim Welsford, won the toss and elected to bat first on what looked a flat wicket. A short boundary to the eastern side of the ground would have had batsmen licking their lips; however the regularity of wickets tumbling provided little opportunity for lusty hitting during the match.
