Congratulations on the 2nd XI & 3rd XI for qualifying for the Semi Final next weekend 7th (Saturday) & 9th of March (Monday).
As we prepare for a big weekend ahead we need as many players to get along to training on Thursday night from all teams, it would be great to see plenty of the 1st XI along to support those playing in the finals. Training is scheduled for a 6.00pm start this week so that way it gives everyone a chance to get along after work, if you arrive early it would be great to get everything set up for a centre wicket hit out.
U/13 Semi Final
Toorak Blue 9/185 (cc) v Cougars
Some good batting will see us through to the Grand Final.
Get down to support the boys at Romanis Res Friday night from 4.45pm
2nd XI vs Glen Waverley. Resumed on 1/57 chasing 226 for victory. We got off to a great start today before we lost our second wicket for 90 and then we had a small collapse, something that has happened regularly throughout the season. We lost 4/21 in 10 overs. 5/111 and the game is in the balance, plenty of overs to bat. We then lost another 3/36 in 11 overs to be 8 for 137. Looking down the barrel Max Roberts & Warren Page put on 50 runs for the 9th wicket giving us a sniff of victory, unfortunately we couldn't get the remaining runs being all out for 201. Great Knock from Nev Sinnott 74 pushing his tally past 300 for the season & Warren Page 66 falling one run short of 400 for the season. Our focus now shifts to next week, more than likely we will play Glen Waverley again in the Semi Final. Our chance at redemption. No second chances next week!!!! Go Cougars.
