As we know a pitch can’t be judged until 2 teams have batted on it and our bowlers went to work where able to successfully defend their total bowling out Medowie for 9 for 106. Steven Varnum (3-17) & Phil Apthorpe (2-20) ended with best figures for the day.

 

A Grade

Our skipper won the toss and chose to bat against Tech College and with a constant fall of wickets could only manage 100 runs, with Craig Plain top score of 26.

Merewether tried hard in the field but it just was one of them days! Where everything that went in the air was just short or just wide and to Techs credit they were just too good on the day and I’m sure we will bounce back next week.

Merewether 10-100 v Tech College 1-101 

 

4th Grade

Beginning the day 50 runs behind Belmont, our 4th graders looked to play the day just like the start of any other game.

Early on continuing to bat on a declaration came with the total 8 for 249 and 30 overs left in the day this meant Belmont behind by 125 runs.
