Rush of Bloods at crease

November 15, 2017

Jesse Barker swings for the fence on his way to an unbeaten 83.


Division one

The division one Bloods hosted Nathalia in round six of Murray Valley Cricket Association action.

Nathalia won the toss and elected to bat.

Nathalia was on the back foot early, losing its first wicket in the first over. Some great bowling from Jesse Barker (4-19 off five), Andy Arthurs (2-4 off five) and Rylie Rennick (2-14 off six) saw the visiting side all out for 87 in the 28th over.

There was a quick changeover and Tocumwal opened its innings before tea.

A 109-run opening partnership between Michael Roberts and Barker well and truly had the home team across the line in the 19th over.

Tocumwal batted on until the 32nd over before calling it a day. Roberts finished with 63, while Jesse Barker was unbeaten on 83.

Division two

Tocumwal v Finley

Finley won the toss and elected to bat.

Tocumwal showed another fine display of bowling, getting the home side out in the 25th over for 90.

Darren White took 3-22 off seven, Dean Cole finished with figures of 2-22 off five, while Stewie Miles starred with 2-3 off two.

Rod Booth swapped a golf club for a cricket bat but was just as successful, finishing his batting efforts on 55 not out. Dean Cole was 26 not out and Paul Mangion contributed 12.

It was a great team effort to get over the line again this week.

Tocumwal hosted Jerilderie this week, with all the kids having a great time.

Under the new system, Tocumwal has two under-12 teams with nine kids in each team.

Layne Haley top-scored for team two with 12 and no outs. Jessica Bennett, Liam Purtill, Kate Purtill, and Reuben Haley also enjoyed an innings with no outs.

Layne continued his great game into the field, taking four wickets. Reuben, Logan White and Joe Barker took a wicket each. Well done to team two on its first win.

Team one hosted Berrigan.

Connor Chivers top-scored for team one with 12 and no outs, while Abbey O’Connel, Alana Sutton, Will O’Connel, Nate Grieves and Percy Dines all enjoyed a game with no outs.

In the field Percy, Nate and Liam Sutton all took a wicket each.

But while the kids all played well, Berrigan was too strong.


On a warm and sunny afternoon at Scott Oval, Cobram-Yarroweyah United Cricket Club won the toss and elected to bat against Cobram.

Although Englishman Will Robertshaw was unavailable, CYUCC was still confident going in to the match.

After a poor start, CYUCC’s innings was resurrected by Kane Goldsworthy (49) and Mitchell Richmann (20). Both batsmen showed resilience and CYUCC was able to post a competitive 157 from its allotted 45 overs.

CYUCC went in to the field confident of defending its total.

Mitchell Richmann provided the initial breakthrough and Cobram was under pressure. However, Cobram managed to rebuild its innings and pass CYUCC’S total with several wickets in hand.

In the last over, Kane Goldsworthy provided the crowd with some excitement and ran out Jonathan Fearn with a direct hit from the boundary.
